Good morning, Today on The Meter we cover the ongoing protests in Ferguson, MO over the shooting death of Michael Brown, an 18 year old black man, by a white police officer. Police are saying the shooting was justified while the family of Michael Brown are referring to his death as an execution. Does this case signify a deeper divided betwwen law enforcement and it's treatment of black suspects nationwide? Also, we cover the latest in Iraq violence and US air strikes continue. In Texas a Distrirct Attorney has indicted Gov. Rick Perry on corruption charges and some are calling it a dirty political stunt. Please join us at 10:00 AM. Your input is essential. www.blogtalkradio.com/themeter
Talking about the recent cases of police brutality, the killing of two Black men, Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY, and Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. Reading from my collection of poetry about police misconduct, "Sometimes Blue Knights Wear Black Hats."
"Sometimes Blue Kights Wear Black Hats:" is a collection of poetry about law enforcement excesses. Most of the poems were inspired by actual cases from around the country. The author did not set out to compile a collection of these poems, but more and more, nearly every day, another case of law enforcement's excessive use of force was reported in the Media. The author also did not set out to demonize law enforcement, but focused on those cases where things went terribly wrong, for a number or reasons.
SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Continuing on with our discussion from last night, tonight we touch on the effects of being silent while Black. Many of us believe that protesting or taking action will shake a rattlesnakes' nest and others believe that silence hasn't stopped the ambushes on us anyway. Join in tonight with your thoughts by calling 347-327-9967 @10:30 pm EST.
Adam, Cari and Bill are back on this edition of #BSP to talk all about the Nittany Lions. There's plenty of news to discuss, even though we've now begun the dog days of the offseason. The three man pod will discuss James Franklin's first spring game in State College, his continued success on the recruiting trail, and the Nittany Lions selected in this past weekend's NFL Draft. All that and more on the Black Shoe Podcast!
In this episode, Thad Bell and Jeff Husted chat with Becky Sauerbrunn, FC Kansas City's captain and U.S. National Team regular.

SKC tries to rebound from the devastating loss to DC United in their last home match and Houston may be just what Vermes' squad needs. The Dynamo have not been good on the road but they are often a tough challenge for Sporting KC. Will the boys in blue overcome orange again? Who will be the key matchups?
SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Simply put, the Blue Wall of Safety has become the Big Black Nightmare for the African-American society. The force designed to put citizens' fears to rest, keep society safe, and catch the bad guys have themselves become the source origin of fear, the threats of danger, an the very disarray they are sworn to contain. The new security blanket of "perceived threats" used by the police to unlawfully detain non-violent, unaggressive citizens that result in tragedies or fatalities, along with the pre-rehearsed excuses of "I-feared-for-my-life" at the mere presence of an African-American in the vicinity of a Caucasian resident or neighborhood has completely discombublated the true responsibilities of our law enforcement officials and their boundaries. Civil liberties being violated is an understatement, and once again, even with the newly delivered Guilty verdict against Theodore Wafer, outrage with action and consequences must be pressed upon the powers that be. Join in tonight at 10:30 pm as we discuss the high profile murder cases, the justice carried out, or not, in these cases. Also, tune in as we interview Tylon Washington of GoPro Radio in Jersey City, who is on the receiving end of a shakedown to shut down his radio network as it has become a powerful verbal beacon for the African-AMerican community. Tune it to hear how you can help him stop the injustice. Call in at 347-327-9967.

Thad and Ben get back together (Mike was unable to call in) to discuss the Sporting Kansas City loss at home to DC United. What went wrong? Who can we blame? Can we fix it and make Sporting Park the fortress everyone wants it to be? Can they rebound for Friday?
