This Friday's Critical Conversations begins with Texans Dr. Jim Picht and attorney James Edwards discussing the indictment of Governor Rick Perry.

Perry has been indicted for "coercion" and abuse of power because he refused to fund the office of DA Rosemary Lehmberg after losing confidence following her belligerent behavior during a DUI arrest. 

A grand jury indicted Texas governor Rick Perry this week on abuse of power charges, and he was arraigned on Wednesday complete with mug shot and fingerprints.

Perry has been supported by some surprising liberal leaders, including Alan Dershowitz, but has also been slammed by others.

Staying stateside, the conversation will move to Ferguson, Missouri and the clashes between police and residents following the killing of 18 year-old Michael Brown.

Our guest tonight will be Kerry Trahan a 1988 graduate of West Point Military Academy. He served 11 years active and reserve service as an office in the United States Army. He is a graduate of the military police officers advance course.

The question of the relationship between police and resident is under a bright light and Kerry and Jim Picht will talk about whether Darren Wilson could have had options other than using lethal force with Michael Brown.

We hope you will listen in to the live show, Friday evening at 6:30 pm (right here) and call in with your thoughts.

We are then going to turn to the Middle East and ISIS.  Communities Editor in Chief Lisa Ruth, a former CIA analyst and intelligence expert, who will join Jim and Kerry to discuss the threat of ISIS, the beheading of photojournalist Jim Foley.
