National Review's Williamson: Quick Justice in Ferguson 'Dangerous'

By    |   Thursday, 21 Aug 2014 05:17 PM

The demand for quick justice in the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, is wrongheaded and dangerous, says Kevin D. Williamson, deputy managing editor for National Review Online.

"What's dangerous and bad about this, of course, is this rush to judgment," Williamson said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"You have politicians like [Missouri Gov.] Jay Nixon trying to prejudice and bias the process, [saying] … we need a vigorous prosecution of this guy even though he hasn't even been charged with anything.

"The grand jury hasn't had an opportunity to consider whether he should be charged … [or] whether there was a crime committed so everyone needs to take a step back and let the investigation happen."

Brown, 18, was shot by Officer Darren Wilson, who had confronted him for blocking traffic. It has since emerged that Brown may have charged and attacked Wilson, prompting the officer to defend himself.

Brown was also a suspect in an earlier convenience store robbery, although Wilson did not know that at the time.
