On November 24, myself and the rest of the world heard the news that Officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted for the murder of Black teen Michael Brown. Had Officer Wilson been indicted, a trial would commence allowing him to be judged guilty or not guilty by a jury.
I sat and listened to St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch open his remarks with words that already seemed apologetic. I already knew but I was waiting to hear the words from the horses mouth. "There was no evidence revealing probable cause to indict officer Wilson." My heart sank low as I saw the reaction of Ferguson on the tv screen.
Officer Darren Wilson is a free man, and I am hurt. I am angry. Was justice served here? No it was not. Are our law systems flawed? I cannot say because I do not know the law. Just because I watch SVU doesn't mean I know the ins and outs of our judicial system or proper police protocol.
What I do know is that Michael Brown should not have been murdered in cold blood. There is no way Darren Wilson could've been threatened by an unarmed Mike Brown who stood 100 plus feet away with his hands up.

Hi everyone! As my #NoBuyNovember Challenge painfully rolls along, I've been able to appreciate the staples in my closet. After many many requests, the moment is here. Today's post will be the beginning of HNOW's Womens Wardrobe Essentials segment. In this segment I will feature the top 10 items every woman should have in their closet. This challenge, mixed with this new segment really opened my eyes to what I already have and what I've been buying for no reason. I made a list, checked it twice, and I'm ready to get started! Ready? We'll start things off with The Leather Jacket.
