Comedian(?) Russell Brand attacked St. Louis County grand jury after no charges were filed against Officer Darren Wilson.
Of course, Brand does not mention that seven black witnesses corroborated Darren Wilson’s story or that a bi-racial jury found him innocent.
What an idiot.

It’s unlikely this fool even read the court documents before he started blathering about the case.
Russia Today reported:
On Monday, a St. Louis County grand jury opted not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, setting off fierce anger in the tense, bereaved community of Ferguson. In announcing the decision, county prosecutor Robert McCulloch said “that as tragic as it is, it was not a crime, not one where charges should be filed.”
“The grand jury found that that white man, Darren Wilson – who’s a policeman, coincidentally – didn’t do anything wrong when he killed that young lad, Michael Brown – who’s a black man, coincidentally,” Brand said.
Brand took the opportunity to analyze the situation and examine how many top news organizations have ignored a punishment-free murder to focus on unruly crowds and protests, and also what the grand jury decision says about law and the criminal justice system in the United States.
“It’s this series of coincidences that’s leading to protests. Does that mean we have no power? Does that mean that the laws that have been set up don’t give us any access to power? Are we living in a corrupt world with no possibility for change?” Brand added.
“Let’s find out,” he said, before showing a clip of Fox News, a popular target of Brand’s.
