SORT BY Relevancy
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..
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 Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Department of Justice has been using Cessna aircraft equipped with Stingray-like devices called Dirtboxes that act as fake cell phone towers. The devices are used like the Stingray units to capture data from the cell phones of supposed "targets." It's clear that many innocent Americans phone data is being snapped up at the same time.

Here we are a month or so shy of the death of Mike Brown as well as several others since Mike Brown's murder a tidle wave of police killings across the country. Yet for over a month the city of Ferguson Missouri still have no real questions fully answered. And it took nearly a month to even give the name of the police officer in the shooting as well as indict him? Police chiefs are out of control, police department looks like a throw back from the KKK and still the citizens even after their recent election are outraged from delayed response by the police department, the justice departmetn as well the so called leaders in that very community for not putting the "pedal to the metal" and continuing to put pressure on the entire legal system concerning the injustice that was done to not only Mike Brown in his senseless murder, yet on the citizens who are constantly being harrassed, pepper sprayed, beaten and thrown in jail by these "Keystone Cops" in Ferguson. They want answers and we a revolution!
Biography of Eddie Jones Jr.
President of the los Angeles Civil Rights Association
Eddie Jones Jr. a native of Los Angeles, CA. has been president of the Los Angeles Civil
Rights Association for ten years and a public servant for the last twenty years. Mr. Jones has worked with a variety of leaders from all over the United States such as Dr. Earl Ofari Hutchinson, AI Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Yvonne Burke, Congress woman Diane Watson, Congress woman Maxine Waters, Dr. Martin Luther King Ill, John Mack, Council Man Herb Wesson, Council Man Bernard Parks, Dick Gregory, Danny Bakewell Sr., and a host of other governors, congress people, council people.
Eddie Jones Jr. has worked on a variety of cases with the Los Angeles Civil Rights
Association along with the department of justice to investigate wrongful treatment of innocent people along with other major issues. Some cases that the Los Angeles Civil Rights Association has worked on include the wrongful death of Woodrow Player Jr. who was shot in the back with no weapon found, the Kevin Wicks shooting, the Devin Brown shooting, the Tyiesha Miller shooting, the wrongful killing of John Thomas Horton Ill who was beat to death and hung in the men's central jail in downtown Los Angeles unveiling the cover up of beatings and misconduct.
Mr. Jones has also worked very closely with the families of cases such as the shooting of
Montae Ray Talbert also known as M-Bone, and so many other cases.
The Los Angeles Civil Right Association makes it a priority to help the community in a
variety of ways. They have collaborated with council man Herb Wesson to put a street light on Rodeo at Dorsey High school where nine year old Demaria Grant was hit and killed by a hit and run driver. They provide food for the homeless every Friday from seven pm to ten pm.
Why does the administration treat our military veterans like human garbage? Every year on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, Barack Obama and our other politicians make very nice speeches, but the truth about how they feel about our veterans can be seen in how they are treated every single day.
In the United States today, there are well over half a million veterans that have been waiting for at least 125 days to have their benefit claims processed. Many of them will ultimately have their claims sent back or denied just so a government employee somewhere can get a bigger bonus.
Meanwhile, conditions at VA facilities all over the country are absolutely abysmal, and many veterans have to wait more than half a year just to get an appointment at one of those facilities. Once you start looking into how this country really treats military veterans, it becomes easier to understand why 22 military veterans commit suicide in America every single day.
Our vets have a higher rate of unemployment, a higher rate of poverty, a higher rate of homelessness, a higher rate of depression and a higher rate of divorce then the general population. It is a crying shame. One of the ways that any society is judged is by how it treats military veterans, and the truth is that America has failed miserably. This has been particularly true since Barack Obama has been in the White House..
On any given night, approximately 200,000 military veterans are homeless in the United States
In some areas of the country the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has been caught banning the words “God” and “Jesus” during funeral services for veterans.
The federal government is increasingly labeling military veterans as “potential domestic terrorists” if they express viewpoints that are critical of the government. The following is from a recent article by John Whitehead…

FACTS: Approximately 12%-13% of the American population is African-American, but they make up 40% of the almost 2.1 million male inmates in jail or prison (U.S. Department of Justice, 2009). Census data for 2000 of the number and race of all individuals incarcerated in the United States revealed a wide racial disproportion of the incarcerated population in each state: the proportion of blacks in prison populations exceeded the proportion among state residents in twenty states; the percent of blacks incarcerated was five times greater than the resident population.
In an August 2013, Sentencing Project report on Racial Disparities in the United States Criminal Justice System, submitted to the United Nations, "one of every three black American males born today can expect to go to prison in his lifetime".

The Ferguson Case - Will Justice Prevail?
People are getting antsy. Supporters of Brown's family want to see Wilson go to trial. The officer's supporters want him to be vindicated. Business owners worry about their property. Officials are concerned about keeping the peace.
The signs pointed to the grand jury drawing near a decision as to whether Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson will be charged with a crime for fatally shooting Michael Brown.
What do you think?
Was this excessive force? Was this self-defense? Are cops properly trained to handle these kind of cases? orAre have they become trigger happy? Why are these kind of cases becoming so "common"? As a parent, what are you telling your son? Do you think the city already knows the verdict? How will the nation respond, if the cop is not considered guilty? Should young Black men around the country be "MORE" concerned? Will justice prevail?
Let's Talk about this case!
Thank you for your continued support.
