    when someone like this man actually do a killing, write it up here – so far it seems that as far as assassinations go, whites have the big scorecard.

    Yet Obama’e life is threatened every day and little is done….smdh.

      My first thought exactly. I’ll add that the R.W. media money always talks about threats to people like Wilson, but never about all the openly public threats the president receives. Funny how that is.

      ps…gotta be quick around here! great minds and all that!

        They don’t talk about the threats to Obama because they are invested in stoking anger and hatred against him, thus inciting such threats. They see the threats as justified, or at least pretend to view them as justified.

      Little that we see anyway. I think it’s likely that these people are investigated and if there is reason, questioned and detained. It’s not really the sort of activityyou want in the news all the time.

    Threatening Wilson is wrong. Not indicting Wilson is wrong, too.

    Not that I agree with threats toward people…..but this guy gets arrested……The cop who put an ILLEGAL CHOKE-HOLD on Eric Gardner AND KILLS HIM….ON VIDEO…….DOESN’T EVEN GET INDICTED.
    And how many people have been arrested for threatening our President’s life……ZERO… Darren Wilson is more protected than our President concerning this…..sad, sad, sad.

      Why grant immunity from prosecution to the other cops that testified…You must remember that we are talking about rightwingland when discussing Staten Island

    Why don’t they react this quickly to threats on the POTUS or is it really open season on blacks??

    Full disclosure, a few years ago I started seeing a woman who had a boy friend. At the time I was tending bar in the city I live just outside of by about a mile. This guy was at the bar and said he was going to kill me.
    Being a prudent man I reported it to the police, they asked where I lived and when told they said I needed to tell the county sheriff. I called them and they asked where the threat took place, when told it was in the city they said call the city police.

    It’s curious that this man is charged for threatening the life of Darren Wilson, yet Darren Wilson isn’t charged for actually ending the life of somebody. It seems rather hypocritical.
