The tragedy of Michael Brown's death, unarmed and shot by a member of the Ferguson police, is now followed by the tragic failure of the local courts to force the policeman to stand trial. This cannot stand without a measure of accountability. And on that score look no further than the prosecutor's office.
Since Aug. 9 the public has been misled into equating "justice" for Michael Brown with a grand jury indictment against his killer, Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. But an indictment is not the justice Brown supporters are searching for, and its constant positioning as such by the media is tremendously damaging and dangerous.
