It appears that the passion and angst over the killing of 18-year old Michael Brown, is continuing.
While the rioting and looting have subsided, intense through all of this, is the sense of uncertainty, from the perspective of many, as to whether or not justice will prevail. Attorney General Holder visited Ferguson on Wednesday, to assure support in the process, on a federal level.
Invariably, the shooting of Brown, conjures memories of what was thought to be from a bygone era; maybe in truth, it is bygone, but somewhere in this dynamic, perceptions prevail, given the seemingly unchanged and dismal condition of black people in America.
In truth, some have even correlated the shooting and ensuring response on the part of the police, to worldwide situations, such as the events that seem to be spiraling out of control in Gaza.
In truth, are the riots racial in nature, as has been suggested by some in the major media?

[62:10] O you who believe! when the call is made for Prayer on Friday, hasten to the remembrance of Allah, and leave off all business. That is better for you, if you only knew.
[62:11] And when the Prayer is finished, then disperse in the land and seek of Allah’s grace, and remember Allah much, that you may prosper.

The Murder of Michael Brown & Eric Garner: Are the Police Taliban, or Al Qaeda? Who do you fear most?
In the 1960's it was the act of a MARCH, PROTEST, BOYCOTT AND ECONOMIC CHALLENGES that brought CHANGES
This episode will discuss the murder of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Eric Garner was murdered for voicing his concern about being targeted by police and for an alleged prior possession of untaxed cigarettes, which led to a death sentence. Michael Brown was murdered allegedly with his hands in the air and also while unarmed. He was shot six times with a fatal bullet to the 18 year old head. We will discuss the ongoing problems associated with untrained police officers who encounter unarmed people and police citizen encounters in America. Garner wanted to know why he was being harassed and he suffered a life sentence for merely questioning police officers and why are Americans under attack by their local police who are commissioned to protect and serve the community. However, it appears that local police departments are armed military forces who target their communities like terrorist. Who do you fear the Taliban, Al Qaeda or your local police?

After a well-educated Muslim, "Jihdadist John," committed a primitive act that showcased an appalling lack of mentality and intelligence, we here in the West will be forced to ponder the integration of Islam in our Western society. How will this latest abomination of religious extremism -- the so-called Islamic "Caliphate" end up? Will they ever be destroyed? And how? How strong are they, really? And who funds them? How much will they accomplish? How long will their rule last? What is their weakness? Their strength? And most important, how can we prevent these deluded jackasses from rejoining Western society?
