John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore, and Steve Oh host TYT. Video of a Ferguson protester interrupting CNN’s reporting by yelling The Young Turks! Videos of Darren Wilson appearing with George Stephanopoulos to tell his story. Jimmy pointed out that Stephanopoulos didn’t ask any tough questions, but allowed Wilson to look like a choir boy. Steve isn’t as upset at Steph, Jayar thinks the problem is the bias against Black people that has permeated throughout society, among all races. Wilson also doesn’t think he should have done anything differently, and feels remorse that a life was lost. John reads how Justice Scalia’s previous point about the Grand Jury works wasn’t followed by prosecutor Bob McCulloch. Michael Brown’s parents responded to Wilson’s interview giving his side of the story. They want change in the system, and respect for what they’ve gone through. Video of Rudy Giuliani on Fox News saying he would prosecute the Ferguson witnesses that claimed Wilson killed Brown without merit. Jayar points out the many times Black Americans were wrongfully convicted for life sentences or death, due to prosecutors and witnesses that blatantly went after them.
