The recent letter appearing in the News-Democrat by Francis W. Reuterman shows his ignorance of the facts of this case. Mr. Reuterman would have the world believe that Michael Brown was murdered by the Ferguson police, when in fact the police officer feared for his life as Mr. Brown came charging at him and refused an order to stop.
Mr. Reuterman should know that the Attorney General of the United States failed in his all-out effort to find racism, or criminal wrongdoing in this case. This police officer was not acting out of racism but instead was defending himself against an out-of-control criminal.
Mr. Reuterman claims he is writing an article on racism in America to be published in Europe. I hope he gets his facts straight before he submits it.
