The situation in Ferguson, Missouri is working up to a lynch mot mentality as the public waits for the grand jury to announce their findings. Judging by the amount of activity and the statements from authority I would guess that they are getting advance notice that the grand jury will exonerate the police officer.
When/if that happens the black community will tear the town apart with the possibility that they will attempt to lynch the officer. This is where the irony falls. With the old days of the Klu Klux Klan and blacks being lynched it appears that the crowds are not looking for justice, but revenge. No voices are being heard about whether the diminutive size of the officer vs the huge black guy trying his best to beat the cop to death.
If in fact he genuinely feared for his life then as I understand it, he has the right to use deadly force. I see a tragedy unfolding here with people like the US attorney general and good old Al Sharpton, professional agitator inciting the black community. The possibility of the cop being thrown under the bus to placate the community exists, without due process.
