This is a concept that a vast number of citizens are mulling over these days. Not that it will (probably) ever gain any traction, but there are believed to be, by a great many Americans, certain persons who reside beyond the borders of the town of Ferguson, MO. that have been complicit to a degree in the crimes that have occurred there of late.
Then there is the idea that “complicit” might not be a strong enough word and that “directly solicitous” of the crimes is far more apropos’. According to the website uslegal.com the definition of “solicitation” as in “to solicit a crime” is as follows:
“A person is guilty of solicitation to commit a crime if, with the purpose of promoting or facilitating its commission, he commands, encourages or requests another person to engage in specific conduct which would constitute such crime or an attempt to commit such crime or which would establish his complicity in its commission or attempted commission. It is immaterial that the actor fails to communicate with the person he solicits to commit a crime if his conduct was designed to effect such a communication.”
The prevalent feeling amongst Ferguson’s black community (and elsewhere) is, that despite the fact police officer Darren Wilson was not charged in the shooting death of Ferguson resident Michael Brown – who is believed to have attacked Wilson and attempted to wrestle his sidearm away causing the shooting to occur – justice was miscarried and Brown was killed solely because he was black. All this is in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
On the flipside of the coin, there are those who believe that the violence, mayhem, and attempted murder that have ensued are at least partly because of influences OUTSIDE the community which have instigated actions therein. Some of these “suspects” are extremely high-profile types.
Consider the well documented racially inflammatory remarks of those who are fanning the flames of racial tension and animosity. People like Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, and Barack Obama whose persistent, caustic annotations have spawned violence as much as if they were actually present themselves.
And perhaps worst of all is Obama’s close friend and associate; Nazi-sympathizer and liberal billionaire George Soros who has even gone so far as to fund the organizations behind the protests and violence.
Although there is certainly moral turpitude involved in the actions of these men there is about a snowball’s chance in Hades they would ever be indicted or prosecuted, despite the actions their solicitations have fomented. After all, it would take not just the facts to cause such prosecutions, but people with the authority to implement them.
Therein lay the problem.
