SORT BY Relevancy
By The Ron and Don Show
The City Pages wrote, “If Rich Stanek wins a third term as Hennepin County Sheriff, he'll do so without the support of his deputies. In July, the Hennepin County Sheriff's Deputies Association announced it's overwhelmingly supporting the candidacy of Minneapolis Police Assistant Chief Eddie Frizell, who is running to take Stanek's job.”
Join the team of Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen as our special guest is Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek. In an unscientific poll conducted by the Independent Business News Network in August 2014 showed Sheriff Stanek leading Frizell in double-digits. We start the show with Sheriff Stanek who is happy to tell us about what it takes to be a leader in Hennepin County.
We also cover the Community Standards Initiative (CSI) and hope someone in that organization can find a phone number, report or mission to let us know what really happened between the school board, Director Rebecca Gagnon, Al Flowers and Clarence Hightower. Sources tell IBNN NEWS that CSI was expecting a check on this past Monday for $49,000.00 – but did not get it. (Watch R.T. Rybak closely.)
Also in the room will be the absurd discussion about a handful of community “freelancers” putting together a budget of $10 million dollars (mostly salaries) to present to the governor for more community pimping. The two African American state senators put the STOP on that!
Join Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen for another episode of The Ron and Don Show. This week both hosts will talk about the killing in Minneapolis as well as what's happening in Ferguson, MO. Tune in at 8:30 p.m. to hear the best in Black Talk Radio on #BlogTalkRadio.
It is unlikely the town of Ferguson, Missouri will change in our lifetimes. The mainstream media has portrayed Ferguson, Missouri as a town of rioter’s and looter dismissing the fact the town of 21,203 (2010 census) is in a crisis. In a report from ArchCity Defenders — a legal group that “works to break the cycle of ‘revolving door justice’ in the St. Louis metropolitan area” — reveals that in 2013, “the Ferguson Municipal Court disposed 24,532 warrants and 12,018 cases, or about 3 warrants and 1.5 cases per household.” In Ferguson, the “majority (67%) of [the city's 21,203] residents are African-American” and “22% of residents live below the poverty level.” Despite Ferguson’s relative poverty, fines and court fees comprise the second largest source of revenue for the city, a total of $2,635,400 [...] According to a court employee, the docket for an average court session may include as many as 1,500 cases. Assuming an 80% conviction rate, the average fine in a case resulting in a guilty verdict would be $275.The local carnage happening over the last month and a half is a direct representation of what being poor, black and broke looks like in a town with no opportunities to rise beyond the mundane.
So far in 2014 we (Black Americans) have seen it all. Black men beat, shot and killed by law enforcement that has already made the mental note all blacks are dangerous and not to be trusted; with our without a weapon. As American turns its focus to Ferguson, Mo, and the President Obama releases an official statement, it troubles us this kind of gangland killing still goes on in America and nobody seems to be able to fix what is happening. don't be fooled by Eric Holder's and the Justice Department talking about "an investigation." This is nothing more than a "white-wash" to settle the nerves of the mainstream and has nothing to do with justice for the marginalized black body.
Tune in Wednesday, (August 13) at 8:30 p.m. to The Ron and Don Show as we take you on a historical journey of the black body and how the evolution Jim Crow still murders black men and women sometimes without weapons.

Jack Shepherd is running for Minnesota senate as an Independence candidate. He is concerned about how members of the minority community are being marginalized and excluded from a fair playing field of economic stimulus.
Shepard says, “Blacks in Minnesota's Hennepin County are 9.1 times more likely to be convicted for marijuana possession than Whites. The long-term collateral costs escalate significantly. Such disparities strip black community wealth and exacerbate equity gaps for individuals and neighborhoods in communities of color. “
Shepard wanted to send a message to the black community of the Twin Cities and called radio station KMOJ-FM. Join us for this and more...
