The Justice Department will open a civil rights investigation into policing practices in Ferguson, Mo., Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday. The move marks the Obama Administration’s most forceful step to address racial strife in the mostly African-American St. Louis suburb, where a police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teen on Aug. 9.
Ferguson activists and community leaders say they are welcoming the investigation, saying the practice of racial profiling by police was widespread in the community long before department veteran Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown. The incident sparked days of protests and a heavy police crackdown.
But should DOJ have stepped in? We discuss it..
A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted.
The importance and significance of justice can never be underestimated in the affairs of men. This is so because according to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice.”
Verily, justice occupies the highest place in the hierarchy of human values. Under the Old Testament particularly in the Book of Micah, the teachings of the prophets of Israel were summarized into one verse only: “to do justice; to show constant love and to live in humble fellowship with God.”
Actually, justice is synonymous with righteousness in the sense that what is righteous is just and what is just is righteous.
Indeed, it is important to be just for according to Confucius “heaven gives long and good life to the just.” His statement finds strong support in two biblical passages, to wit:
“Righteous men – men of integrity – will live in this land of ours. But God will snatch wicked men from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground.” (Proverbs 2:21-22)
“The Lord puts a curse on the house of wicked men and blesses the homes of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3:33
Tonight we will discuss the Criminal Justice System and why it is not working for black people. We will also discuss a case here in Inkster, Michigan concerning the beating of a 57yo African American Male below:
Fighting back tears, a Detroit man and longtime auto worker with no criminal history, described how Inkster police officers dragged him from his car one night in January, choked him, beat him and Tasered him during a traffic stop that was caught on patrol car video.
"He was beating me upside the head," Floyd Dent, 57, told a horde of reporters and TV crews during a press conference at his attorney's office Wednesday afternoon, as tears trickled his cheeks. "I was trying to protect my face with my right arm. I heard one of them say, 'tase the M...F. '"
The Jan. 28 incident was caught on police video cameras and is making national news. It shows Inkster police pulling over Dent in his 2011 tan Cadillac near South River Park Drive and Inkster Drive shortly before 10 p.m. The two officers approach with their guns drawn. As Dent opens the door, they pull him out and shove him to the ground. Dent does not appear in the video to be resisting arrest.

On January 8, the United States Department of Justice and Department of Education announced the release of the first-ever joint guidance on student discipline. The guidance provides information to schools and school districts about their obligations under the law to eliminate and prevent racial discrimination in the way that they discipline students.
My guests, Shaheena Simons, Deputy Chief of the Educational Opportunities Section of the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice, and Jonathan Stith, Executive Director of the Alliance for Educational Justice, will talk about the guidance and why its release is such a critical moment for education equity.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans and promotes equity in education in compliance with federal civil rights law.
The desire for justice is almost universal. In our temporal world, wars are fought to liberate the oppresed. Great movements rise from the desire to free those who suffer injustice at the hands of tyranny.From this fundamental desire of God for His people, we are reminded of two basic truths: (1) Godis the ulmtimate judge of all, practicing pure justice in all His dealings with humanity and (2) God commands His people to practicace justice in all their dealings with one another as well as in the world around them.
Tonight we will discuss the need of black leadership in the black community in order to reduce police brutality; The reason these problems are redundant is because we do not have representation that looks out for our better interest. Tokensim is and has gotten to be a sneaky, dinosaur method of failed leadership that is not effective in the year 2015. This was an experiment that has failed and is ineffective in the black community. We need strong, God-fearing, moral Black leadership that is looking out for our best interest.
