Norton’s comments came after Hannity asked her point blank whether she had actually reviewed the evidence from the Ferguson grand jury.
Her answer? Of course not.
“The evidence, that’s for you, that’s for the pundits, that’s not where I am,” she said, before launching into a familiar leftist screed about racism and police-community relations.
Hannity continued to press Norton about the circumstances of the case, pointing out that that Michael Brown had robbed a store prior to being stopped and that several witnesses testified that he charged Officer Wilson before the fatal shots were fired.
But Norton would have none of it, insisting that she didn’t want to “talk about the case” and preferred to focus on “what we should do going forward.”
Like too many of her left-wing acolytes, Norton prefers to stoke outrage rather than engage in a serious discussion about what happened in Ferguson.
The fact is that this tragedy could have been avoided if Michael Brown had simply followed orders instead of attacking a police officer and grabbing his gun. That kind of reaction is simply asking for trouble.
But far be it from leftists to let little things like facts get in the way of a valuable political opportunity.
