A year after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown sparked a firestorm in Ferguson, the city is still pumping out thousands of new arrest warrants and jailing people over minor offenses, according to an exclusive CNNMoney analysis.This practice continues despite a scathing report from the Department of Justice in March that found that Ferguson's police department and municipal court were unconstitutionally targeting low-income and minority residents with tickets and fines for minor offenses -- often in pursuit of revenue. The report noted that there were more than 16,000 people (residents and non-residents alike) with outstanding arrest warrants as of the end of last year, equivalent to around 75% of the town's population.
The problem is widespread. Since Brown’s life was cut short on that fateful August day, we have witnessed incident after incident, in communities all across the country, of unarmed black men and women dying at the hands of police. Video cameras do not lie, and information and social media isn’t keeping people in isolated communities any more. Al Sharpton
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.
