Dick Morris Concerned Black People Won’t ‘Swallow’ Grand Jury Decision on Darren Wilson
Republican political strategist Dick Morris said in a video posted to his website Friday that a non-indictment of police officer Darren Wilson will lead to widespread racial animus across the country.
A grand jury in St. Louis, Mo., is currently deliberating whether to press charges against Wilson, who is white, for the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black and unarmed.
Morris said in his video that public evidence so far indicates Brown was likely at fault in the Aug. 9 incident and that the grand jury may determine that as well.
“I’m very concerned that the African-American community will not accept that verdict without actually seeing the proof placed in front of them as it would have been if there were in fact a trial,” Morris said. He noted a recent poll that showed a majority of adult black Americans already believe Wilson should be convicted of murder.
“That’s going to be hard for the black community to swallow,” Morris said. He suggested that the St. Louis County prosecutor, Robert McCulloch, should issue a report at the end of the grand jury proceedings that dictates all the evidence that was presented.
