Darren Wilson’s testimony shows he sometimes has trouble using pronouns to describe shooting victim Michael Brown.
The only way I can describe it, it looks like a demon…
To me, this quote tells us everything we need to know about Wilson’s mindset when he pulled the trigger. Turning a human into an “it” is almost always a prerequisite to violence. From the Rolling Stone article about the UVA gang rape:
“Grab its motherfucking leg,” she heard a voice say. And that’s when Jackie knew she was going to be raped.
How can anyone make an ethical decisions when dealing with an object and not a human being? You can’t.
