SORT BY Relevancy
About a month ago I did a show talking about how events in Ferguson, Baltimore, and Milwaukee would change how police operate. Now in the news we are seeing this very thing. Crime rates are up. In Milwaukee the murder rate is up 180% from this time last year.
Police are not engaging because they are scared. Not of the criminals, but rather of the system that is suppose to support them to do their jobs.
RAMADI HAS FALLEN
Ramdi is now under ISIS control. Have we as a nation let go of our efforts to spread democrac? In a place like Iraq our involvement has turned out to be a huge detriment to that country. Where we once were a beckon of light, now those people are living in a greater hell than before we over thru Sadam Hussein.
Rick Santorum Joins the Ranks of Right Wing Homophobs
In this election cycle we are going to see more and more of the LGBT community come out (no pun intended). Where the Republicans land on this issue will make a difference. More and more Republicans, especially the younger generation, are more accepting of the LGBT community. This could make a serious difference. Instead of Republicans being scared of being called racists, this go around they may become scared of being called homophobic.

The Justice Department on Wednesday called on Ferguson, Mo., to overhaul its criminal justice system, declaring that the city had engaged in so many constitutional violations that they could be corrected only by abandoning its entire approach to policing, retraining its employees and establishing new oversight. The report described a city that used its police and courts as moneymaking ventures, a place where officers stopped and handcuffed people without probable cause, hurled racial slurs, used stun guns without provocation, and treated anyone as suspicious merely for questioning police tactics.
“Seen in this context — amid a highly toxic environment, defined by mistrust and resentment, stoked by years of bad feelings, and spurred by illegal and misguided practices — it is not difficult to imagine how a single tragic incident set off the city of Ferguson like a powder keg,” AG Holder NYT
Two officers shot in Ferguson only tell part of the sinister events that are brewing in Ferguson. There is an element that wants civil unrest in America. That would bring a convenient domestic distraction on world events as well as executive orders that would be issued during such an unrest. This is a tremendous challenge to the church to be in the public square and denounce the violence that the perpetrators are not able to gain traction in the minds of the citizens of Ferguson and other inner cities.
The Department of Justice revealed to the world a fact that any person of color who has driven through Ferguson already knows…driving while black will cost you. The fallout has resulted in a few resignations, changes in nearby jurisdictions, resurgence of protests, revived conversations about race in this country, and the shooting of two police officers. We will talk about the implications of the DOJ’s report for not only Ferguson but for the country as a whole. What real conversations should we be having now that the covers have been pulled back on the practice of “citation without representation”? Let’s talk about this…we want to hear your thoughts and DON’T BITE YOUR TONGUE!!! Call in or listen in at 646-716-5470.
