“ALL Americans”? Uh, speak for yourself, buddy.

NBC News legal analyst Lisa Bloom is still seething over the Ferguson grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson. Here’s a small sample of tweets showcasing her disgust:

Darren Wilson described Mike Brown to the grand jury as “like a demon,” like “Hulk Hogan.” He had more than a month to come up with that.

Darren Wilson testified both he and Mike Brown used profanity in their altercation. Of course, his was justified, Brown’s wasn’t.

The kid glove treatment of Darren Wilson in his grand jury testimony I’ve been tweeting about today was all done on the public record.

— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 25, 2014

How to not get charged: 1. don’t talk or do incident report 2. lawyer up, review all evidence 3. get prosecutors who don’t ask any hard Qs

— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 25, 2014

We’re all entitled to due process of the laws, but in #Ferguson, some people get more process than is due.

— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 25, 2014

Many parallels between failures of prosecution in Trayvon Martin & Mike Brown cases: dehumanizing victim, failing to ask tough Qs of shooter

— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 26, 2014

George Zimmerman & Darren Wilson: both said brutally beaten, refused medical treatment, then went. Docs found only the tiniest of injuries.

— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 26, 2014

G Zimmerman and D Wilson: both hassled, then killed unarmed black kids, and magically got prosecutors who forgot how to prosecute.

— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 26, 2014

But this … this is what really gets her:

Reading the Ferguson grand jury transcripts, this one line haunts me the most. DarrenWilson re Mike Brown: “it looks like a demon.” IT

— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 26, 2014

Everything Darren Wilson said in his testimony was after practicing with his lawyer. STILL he disparaged the community and called Mike “it.”

— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 26, 2014

Other members of the Outrage Brigade nodded in agreement:

Research this: That’s KKK Speak. @LisaBloom

@LisaBloom And DEMON. Smh

@LisaBloom @leslie_bern It’s just… It’s just [clenches fist] so OBVIOUS. Something needs to be done.

— chad (@eChadbourne) November 26, 2014

@LisaBloom letting that disgusting characterization go unchallenged made it clear the DA had no interest in “truth”. Purely attack on Brown.

— Willing to argue (@buffsblg) November 26, 2014

@LisaBloom Can’t help himself. Never viewed Mike Brown as a human being.

— Justin (@_JGR) November 26, 2014

@LisaBloom Don’t get me started! I went off when I read that!

— Lisa Campbell (@LisaJac21671472) November 26, 2014

Did you, now? Well get back on, honey. Because, just like Lisa, you left out some pretty important stuff:

@LisaBloom you took that totally out of context.

— Kit Gross (@lochlass) November 26, 2014

@LisaBloom in context, he’s referring to his face. Read it again.

— Allen Henry (@AllenHenry) November 26, 2014

“Demon” comment and the word “it” were tied back to reference to Brown’s “face.” The “it” is Brown’s face. @LisaBloom @Donna_West

— Witness 40 (@Witness40) November 26, 2014

Lisa, he was referring to MB’s face. As you well know. @LisaBloom
