Tonight- The news of a young, unarmed, black man shot to death by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and the ensuing protests by the community and the reaction of various law enforcement agencies, has dominated national news, as of late. How does the situation in Ferguson relate to "The War On Drugs" and what kind of reform measures may be needed to avoid similar situations in the future?

 

 

Returning to PGT -Sheriff W.L. Federspiel the Sheriff of Saginaw County, recently in the national news concerning his department receiving and then returning a military tank. Similar gifting of military equipment is taking place across the country, (SEE FERGUSON-ET AL), but no other Sheriff’s are returning the equipment. In fact the Oakland County Sherrif’s department was gifted a grenade launcher.

 

13 states that passed laws allowing for the use of medical marijuana between 1999 and 2010, and the statistics show that 25 percent fewer people die from opioid overdoses annually.

Attorney Jeff Frazier now residing in Michigan, was one of the ACLU lawyers working on the infamous Tulia case in Texas, in which a drug task force was dismantled for excessive overreach of power and duty.

 

Other Guests TBA.
