Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough went on a rant regarding the ongoing violence in Ferguson, Missouri, and other cities around the nation because of the grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the self-defense shooting of Michael Brown. Scarborough is incredulous that businesses are being destroyed because of a young man who robbed a store and was shot and killed by a police officer he assaulted.
There are so many great people to embrace as heroes in the black community that deciding you’re going to embrace a guy who knocked over a convenience store, and then according to grand jury testimony, acted in ways that would get my children shot … that’s your hero?

I could not agree with every word you said more passionately. It’s not a black/white situation. It’s a thug/police officer situation. I sit here, you know, and I’m going to sound like a grumpy old white guy, but am I missing something here? Am I absolutely missing something here that a criminal who goes into a cop car and goes after a cop and somehow his hands were up, and this is not doing the black community any favors.
