After the Justice Department’s scathing report on the police department was released, racist emails have been highlighted as well as the bias shown in the Ferguson police in a town that consists of a largely black population.
Protesting is an American right, but Fox News’ Megyn Kelly is having none of that.
Darren Wilson was cleared but the point still stands. If Kelly acknowledges that Wilson was cleared, then she should accept the report by the Justice Department.
Kelly got into it with Democratic strategist Mark Hannah over suggestions that the protests that engulfed that Missouri city were not prompted by the narrative of “hands up, don’t shoot” that became a rallying cry for Brown’s cause but has since been called into question. While Hannah said the protests were a result of the “perception” of a racist police force, as borne out by the DOJ’s investigation, Kelly argued it was more about Al Sharpton “out there stoking the fires.”
On the pattern of racially-biased policing in Ferguson, Kelly asked, “That justifies this, Mark? What we saw, all these folks with their ‘hands up, don’t shoot,’ which did not happen!”
If your hands are up, the police should not shoot you. It happened, regardless of how Republicans choose to justify it.
For Kelly’s colleague to claim that Darren Wilson is owed an apology, is absurd. The population of Ferguson deserves a huge apology by the police force and the mayor. They can apologize by cleaning out their system starting from the top, then working their way down.
If the black population was fairly represented in the police force, then the protests might never have happened. One feeds into the other.
The apologists at Fox News need to quit justifying racist behavior.
