Grand juries basically (somewhat more than I thought) always bring true bills; an example of a categorical exception was seen last night. It also was atypical as to how long and drawn out the grand jury proceedings were. And, white or black, police shootings rarely are prosecuted. I'm unsure really if this was so very atypical here (some argue prosecutor did a bad job), but that's how cause célèbres often arise -- not just unique events, but ones that somehow are made into one. While I'm safe in my cocoon, some serious blowback is going on.
