Darren Wilson’s acquittal was the wrong decision (OPINION)

By: Xavier Williams

Protests and riots broke out in Ferguson, Missouri after a  grand jury decided not to charge Darren Wilson with a crime on November 24th, 2014. Darren Wilson was a  Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teen, Michael Brown, on August 9th.

When I found out that the jury had let Darren Wilson go, I was very upset, because what he did to Michael Brown was wrong and insane. I mean, how could the judge be so stupid to let that sick man go? It’s just not fair to the family of Michael Brown; Wilson doesn’t deserve to see another day free at all. Michael Brown was a very bright young man. He didn’t deserve to die like that; he had so much life ahead of him.

The judge had no guilty charges on Officer Wilson, so he decided to let him go. Its like history is repeating itself: it gets more and more dangerous for everyone in the United States of America, and it’s not fair. I believe that the grand jury should have charged him with murder because he killed a boy who was innocent with no intention of hurting anyone at all. He had his hands in the air and Wilson shot him multiple times.

The Michael Brown case is an example of  what goes on in other cities, including here in Baltimore, and how police officers get away with doing bad things to African-American people. This is not okay; it’s not okay because it’s racist and people should stand up against it.
