Shemot 5775: Should Michael Brown’s Step Father be Charged with Inciting a Riot? Balancing the Need for Justice Against the Need for Peace
It has been suggested that Louis Head should be charged with inciting a riot for the provocative comments he made after learning that the police officer who killed his step son, Michael Brown would not be indicted by a Ferguson, Missouri grand jury. Obviously, charging Brown’s step father would further inflame an already volatile situation. Both the Pharaoh of the Exodus and the Pharaoh of Joseph’s time were confronted with the challenge of balancing the need for justice against the need for peace but in very different ways.
