Statement from Church Council of Greater Seattle

"How Long, O Lord?"

The grand jury decision not to charge Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for killing the unarmed young man, Michael Brown, reinforces the grief and anger that residents of Ferguson and around the nation have felt since this tragic shooting took place. Our cries ring out, not for vengeance, but for justice - for an end to the violent taking of the lives of innocent people, particularly African American men, and for the cessation of the use of unnecessary and deadly force as a substitute for responsible community policing and nonviolent alternatives to the sequence of confrontation, escalation, and loss of life.
