'Justice Is Blind': Krauthammer Sounds Off on Ferguson Decision
Charles Krauthammer tonight weighed in on a grand jury’s decision in the shooting death of Michael Brown, saying that anybody who believes the decision was rigged “is really smearing people in an unwarranted way.”
Krauthammer said that he feels prosecutor Robert McCulloch thought there was never enough evidence to bring an indictment upon Darren Wilson.
“However, he did not want to act unilaterally because he knew it’s a very sensitive case, and that if one man had decided that, it would look like the fix is in,” Krauthammer explained.
McCulloch did the responsible thing by letting a jury decide after hearing the “unadulterated, unfiltered” evidence, Krauthammer said.
O’Reilly noted that some people have made the case that McCulloch is prejudiced because his father was killed by a black man.
“We don’t judge people by the family history in this country. It’s a ridiculous argument. The fact is that the prosecutor obviously thought there was not enough evidence, but in a case this sensitive, he wanted to let it be done by 12 impartial people,” Krauthammer told O'Reilly.
Meanwhile, the Brown family attorney made a passionate argument today that this decision isn’t justice and that black people cannot get justice in this country.
“Sincerity is a virtue but it isn’t evidence. […] You can understand the feelings of the family, but they don’t rule. That’s the whole essence of law is that it’s impartial, justice is blind. And if you don’t have that, you have nothing,” Krauthammer said.
