Michael Brown resisted arrest and it cost him his life, period

It wasn't until I watched "Meet The Press" Sunday that I finally figured out why CNN has been camped in Ferguson, Mo., seemingly forever asking the same dumb questions night after night.

Any other time something like this would be allowed to cool off and anyone involved would be able to get a fair trial. As I watch the ad infinitum coverage of the Ferguson grand jury, it's become clear the African-American community has already decided that this case is going to be the poster child that Trayvon Martin's death failed to produce due to Florida's liberal gun laws.

A video leaked to the press verified that Michael Brown was a suspect in a robbery. As such the police officer had every right to stop, question and arrest him for that crime.

It is also clear that Mr. Brown resisted the officer's first attempt to take him into custody. I'm sorry, but resisting arrest can and did cost him his life. Had he been as innocent as many claim he could have let the officer take him in and let his lawyer explain what happened.

Instead, he opted to fight the officer and resist arrest. To assume the officer is guilty for doing what he was hired to do is totally incorrect and once again shows that African-American activists have chosen a poor example for their protest.
