The August 9, 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has ignited rage among citizens who have taken to the streets in protest that police refuse to release the name of the officer who witnesses believe should be charged with murder. Michael Brown, an unarmed African American college bound teenager was gunned down by a white officer even though his hands were raised in surrender and he stated that he was unarmed. President Obama had sharp words for the over-militarized police force in Missouri who used tear gas against peaceful protest marchers and arrested journalists who were attempting to cover the events in the aftermath of the killing. Will the protests escalate into violence that results in another police killing? Will the protest spread to other cities if the officer is not charged with a crime? Are other cities with issues of killings as a result of excessive police force just powder kegs waiting to explode? Or will this incident help the nation to address its long held double standard of justice when it comes to whites killing blacks? What would be a just conclusion to this incident? Zaki Baruti, head of the Universal African Peoples Organization and former candidate for Missouri Governor was a major organizer of the protest marches in Ferguson. He discusses the racial climate of Missouri that contributed to the current conflict, and what the citizens of Ferguson, Missouri are demanding in the case of Michael Brown.
People in Ferguson have contined to organize peaceful demonstrations, even after the funeral of slain unarmed teen Michael Brown, demanding justice. But what is justice? Even if officer Darren Wilson, who shot Michael Brown at least six times, is charged with murder, will that really change conditions of brutality and racial profiling that pervades so many American cities? What new laws should be introduced that could be enforced, and would make citizens feel safe from police abuse? How do we make a racially biased criminal justice system just and fair for all?
Jeann discusses the unrest in Ferguson and what rights the state has.
I will be talking to someone who not only witnessed the riots in Ferguson, Missouri but also was apart of the Mike Brown protests. Sometimes the news doesn't cover or show us all that we need or wish to see which is why I value personal interviews from people who were actually there to experience it! So many questions from the outside looking in that needs answers. Did the media show things like they actually happened? What was the overall vibe of the people of Ferguson? Did the riots bring about a change? Did the riots cause more harm than good? Was excessive forced used by law enforcement to control the crowds fair? These are just some of the questions I have for my guest. Tune in at 7pm EST. Phone lines will be opened at (347) 855-8637. Don't forget to follow me on Instagram @_beezy__

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.
