A Prophetic Sign in FergusonNovember 25, 2014
Watching the split-screen coverage in Ferguson, Missouri, last night demonstrated how far apart justice can be from the law. On one side of the TV, St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch explained how he failed to get an indictment in the case of a white police officer shooting and killing an unarmed black teenager. On the other side, images showed angry protesters shouting at militarized police, and showed looters throwing bricks through windows and setting cars and buildings on fire. No one can honestly describe the scene as justice. Even if the law was followed, there is still a dead teenager and a racially-divided city.
