The Entirely Worthy Ferguson Sketch SNL Decided It Didn't Have Time To Air

Rise and smile.


-

And the much less funny, even unfunny, open. The problem is that the target is Al Sharpton, which is cheap and easy. Yes, the sketch observes the open-and-shut nature of the case ignored by the Staten Island grand jury, but almost as an aside.

Now, it's true that the Garner case might have made the Ferguson open stale, but I'm sure a workaround could have been in order.

Maybe hire some writers from The Onion, who produced these:

* Police Officer Demonstrates Proper Technique For Subduing Grand Jury.

* Overworked Prosecutor Of Taking Police Brutality Case As A Little Vacation.

* Obama Calls For Turret-Mounted Cameras On All Police Tanks.

* Chokehold Ruling Puts Police Body Camera Plan In Doubt.

"I've always believed that the best way to build trust is through constant surveillance."

Comments welcome.
