Poll reveals public thinks there should be no Ferguson indictment and expects violent reaction

It is not just conservatives who are on to the race grievance industry’s exploitation of the death of Michael Brown.  A vast majority realize what is going on.

Valerie Richardson reports in the Washington Times:

Only 1 in 4 Americans believe that white police officer Darren Wilson should be charged with murder by the grand jury in the shooting death in of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, according to a poll released Friday.

With the St. Louis County grand jury expected to render its verdict at any time, the Rasmussen Reports poll found that only 23 percent of those surveyed said Mr. Wilson should be indicted for the Aug. 9 murder of Mr. Brown, whose death touched off riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

Another 39 percent of Americans said that Mr. Wilson acted in self-defense, up from 26 percent when the same question was asked in a mid-August poll. Another 38 percent are undecided, compared with 51 percent who were undecided three months ago. (snip)

The vast majority — 81 percent — said they expect to see violent protests if the grand jury does not indict the officer on murder charges, while just 10 percent said such a reaction was not likely.

The public increasingly understands, despite the efforts of Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, and the media, that people with a financial or political interest in racial animosity are forming what amounts to a lynch mob.
