The Mussolini of Manhattan Speaks of Ferguson, Missouri

In light of the protests in the aftermath of the no indictment of the Ferguson, Missouri police officer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager, Michael Brown, the Mussolini of Manhattan, i.e., former NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, stated that police officers should have fired at — probably shoot to kill — the protesters.

Remember Amadou Diallo, who was shot at 41 times, 19 striking him, by New York’s Finest, during the Reign of Terror of the Mussolini of Manhattan?  His weapon? A wallet.
