The protest against police violence are great but need to be more targeted

Since "no true bill" was delivered in both cases, jeopardy does not exist so reconvening the grand juries, with special prosecutors of course, would not constitute double jeopardy of Wilson or Pantaleo.

I say work to get the cases of those killers back before grand juries without the prosecutor shenanigans that went on in the first proceedings so that indictments can be reached.

Legal advisers, experienced activists and fund raisers can help with this.

I know this is the anti-thesis of the Occupy movement but there seems to be a need of an organizational structure that can formulate tactics to work towards concrete, targeted goals and not just the broad ideals of ending police violence towards people of color.

I don't think that we just have to accept that the grand juries have spoken and that there is no recourse against these two murderer cops.

Reconvening the grand juries can happen.

1. Things will improve.

With cell phone videos and TV lawyer advertisements it will become too expensive to not make reforms.
