There was an indictment in Ferguson

The grand jury in Ferguson issued a searing indictment last night.

No, not against Police Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of an unarmed African-American teen,Michael Brown. In that racially inflamed case, the nine white jurors and three blacks found no grounds to indict.

But their decision nonetheless was itself an indictment — against all the racial hucksters and victimhood-mongers that are doing untold harm to the nation in general, and to blacks in particular.

From the very beginning of this case last summer, there seemed to be sufficient doubt that would make it difficult, if not impossible, to convict Wilson. There were conflicting reports, for starters, about what happened in the confrontation between the police officer and Brown. There was the video from the store, where it surely appeared Brown had committed a crime, shoving the store’s manager.
