As we've already discussed here, it's just shameful that Fox continues to give this wingnut a platform to spew his bile, but that hasn't stopped them from trotting him out week after week for more of his "smug, trollish commentary" and they brought him back on the air to weigh in on the events in Ferguson, MO this Wednesday.

Fox News Contributor Claims Michael Brown’s Stepfather Should Be Charged In His Death:

Fox News’ resident psychiatrist and member of the network’s ‘Medical A-Team’ Keith Ablow appeared on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning to discuss the possibility that Michael Brown’s stepfather could be charged with inciting a riot. Louis Head, Brown’s stepfather, is being investigated by St. Louis County and Ferguson police regarding comments he made the night St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced the county’s grand jury would not indict Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Brown. Head, who was with Brown’s mother in Ferguson when the announcement was read, told the gathered crowd, “Burn this b*tch down!”

Ablow was brought on to discuss whether or not Head deserved to be charged with inciting a riot. To no one’s surprise, Ablow felt that Head deserved to be charged with a crime, saying Head fully intended those actions. When co-host Brian Kilmeade suggested that Head might have been grieving at that time, and that his words may have been impromptu, Ablow dismissed that notion entirely. The good doctor said that he doesn’t see grief; instead, he sees retribution.

At that point, Ablow decided to jump right into the deep-end. He went off into a tangent where he claimed Head really should be the one facing charges in Michael Brown’s death. Ablow’s reasoning is that Head’s lack of respect influenced Brown in his life choices, leading directly to his death. Read on...
