On Monday a grand jury rejected criminal charges against Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, in Ferguson, Missouri, last summer.

But if Wilson had been indicted, Sullum argues, he almost certainly would have been acquitted, precisely because important details of his deadly encounter with Brown are hard to pin down.
