A Grand Jury delivered justice in the Fergsuon, Missouri case of Michael Brown and Officer Darren Wilson.
Wilson was cleared of any charges in the shooting death of the 18-year-old, after Brown had robbed a convenience store, and engaged Wilson in a violent struggle for his gun.
Yet protesters and race-baiters continue to insist Wilsons account as accepted by the bi-racial Grand Jury are completely unbelievable.
Vox (via Justen Charters) compiled numerous Tweets that express this opinion:
Darren Wilson”s testimony is filled with lies. That”s why the national bar association is investigating the grand jury decision.

1st, the idea that an unarmed guy would just REACH into cop car and go for gun is absurd. #MikeBrown #Ferguson. and 2nd..

But one Tweeter asked an important question:
I wonder what all these people would be saying if Michael Brown actually succeeded in stealing the gun from Darren Wilson and killed him.

And sadly, we have something of an answer: a chillingly similar case in which the assailant succeeded where Mike Brown failed, with tragic results for one grieving New York family.
That incident involved upstate New York police officer David Smith, in March of this year. As the NY Daily News reported at the time:
Johnson City Officer David Smith, 43, was shot multiple times outside an MRI office near Binghamton after a disturbed employee managed to grab his gun just after 7 a.m., said Police Chief Joseph Zikuski.
The married 18-year police veteran, who has an 11-year-old son, had just arrived at Southern Tier Imaging when MRI technician James Clark, 43, wildly ran up to him before punching him several times as he was trying to exit his vehicle, said Zikuski.
Smith died of his injuries at the hospital.
According to the Daily News, people who witnessed that shocking crime talked about how Clark somehow managed to grab the officers 9mm pistol and fired until the clip was empty.
So the next time a liberal friend or mail-order Reverend tells you Darren Wilsons story is unbelievable, you might want to share this article with them.
