Blame is being laid at the doors of the wrong whites--the cause of so much of this is the breakdown of the black family, and at the heart of that is the Welfare State. It's the egghead condescending do-gooders whose homes need to be stormed, not the police, who are present in response to violence, not to cause it.
Sounds like the reactions of rioters, the NAACP, perhaps the family, are to reject the findings. Sure, grand juries can make mistakes, but this grand jury heard so much evidence, and knew how much flak they'd get for deciding not to press charges, and they DID IT ANYWAY. But at this stage in our democracy, people are unwilling to accept the results from the working of the system, especially when they can't manipulate it or break it down to get what they want.

I don't know how anyone can be surprised that this sort of stuff goes on amidst communities of irresponsible, un-raised young people (I am in my 20s). They're encouraged by the culture to live for the moment, to act on animal instincts, &to be narcissistic to the point of torturing non-student off-campus neighbors with loud music and raucous behavior (whooping and hollering at all hours of the night). And to top it off, drinking til you're sick (which used to be stigmatized) is now excused in both men and women. How can you ignore all the behavior short of regretted or nonconsensual sexual encounters and not expect that things won't go too far? Why should young people recognize or respect boundaries when there are so few of them?
Sick. If only there were more Hillsdales.
Can we get some punctuation on the description, please? Really don't need trolls calling us dumb for dumb reasons.
Sorta reminds me of the fable they pushed several months ago that denied the existence of all our biracial conservatives. If they're inconvenient for your narrative, pretend they aren't there.

'with a degree stamped from an Ivy League or exclusive university.' Heh, when I hear someone's got a degree from one of those places, I chuckle inside. Either they've got a legit degree in Ivory Tower indoctrination for which they have worked, or they're the beneficiaries of the systemic grade inflation endemic to the Ivy League schools.
I thought people involved in illegal immigration--either as aliens or as their advocates-- just wanted the best for the children. Don't people come across the border 'out of love'? So says Jeb Bush--he can tell that to Jay DiN.

Poverty Causes Crime?

Wonder how people who believe the 'dogma' explain the 'evil' of the rich people they hate--if they're not in poverty, what drives them to 'oppress' and 'take advantage of' the 'poor'?

One of the best written, to-the-point column I've seen on Townhall in a while. As for the 'but the police are acting like a territorial army sometimes' comments, I share those very relevant concerns, but that isn't the focus of Mr. Jackson's piece.
