The most recent protests in Ferguson over the slaying of Michael Brown and all of them seem recent since the protestors have all asked for the same thing. That is to slap the cuffs on Darren Wilson, the officer who gunned down Brown August 9. The reasons given for Wilson's freedom are that the prosecutors and cops almost never arrest and charge other cops with misconduct, the St. Louis County Prosecutor is a bigot, and there's no smoking gun piece of evidence to base an arrest on.
