Afternoon Line- David Backes

“It kind of gave me a sick feeling in my stomach to think that it’s my hometown. I’ve been here for nine years. It’s not just the local news. It’s national news, it’s probably international news. To know what a great place St.Louis is, and to raise a family here and to now have these scars and stereotypes, or whatever it may be, about it being a city of unrest and not safe. We’ve got a lot of healing to do, locally in Ferguson, with all the relationships, and patching them back together to (enhance) our reputation of what a great city this can be, and is, at its heart.”

-David Backes of the St. Louis Blues on the ongoing situation in Feguson, MO.  More on this topic from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen.

on what should be manslaughter at the very very least.

At the very very least, there should have been a trial. The grand jury just decided there wasn’t even enough reason to have a trial, much less convict the man of any wrong doing. Hard to fathom.

And I’m the exact opposite and thought the grand jury was a waste of time and tax payers dollars. Now that the news break is over, let’s get back to hockey.

It was just really odd that the prosecutor, the guy who would have been doing everything possible to get a trial if it had been any Regular Joe committing a crime, got up and started talking like he was Wilson’s defense attorney and blaming social media. There should have at least been a trial.
