Justice, no peace

Would an indictment of officer Wilson been a better outcome?
Or would it just push back the day of anger, like the George Zimmerman verdict did?
There's anger at the lack of indictment on one side - the prosecutor didn't press for an indictiment or the announcement timing was bad.
If it was a political decision against indictment, wouldn't a push to indictment have been a political decision also?
Leaving those who support law and order wondering if politicians support them.
If you indict Wilson, he's the scapegoat for all kinds of problem.
I doubt an indictment would have brought any peace.
You'll have to find peace by avoiding the problem situation in the future.
