Ferguson, MO Killing, Riots, Police State - Is this America?
FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder met with community members in Ferguson, Missouri, on Wednesday and vowed a thorough civil rights probe into the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager that has set off 11 nights of racially charged unrest.
Holder, the first African-American to head the Justice Department, met with students and then community leaders at a community college during a visit to Ferguson for a briefing on a Justice Department investigation into the Aug. 9 killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
He later met privately with Brown's parents at the St. Louis U.S. Attorney's Office, but no details of that session were immediately available.

All This in 30 Minutes!!
Everyone is talking about Michael Brown, his shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. Character assassination, distorted facts, bits and pieces of evidence, the mini-store footage and more. Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson, the race card - you name them all and they apply - THE COOL CRITS give their view of the incident.
Hershel Myers Jr, who lives about a half mile from Ferguson was on the show with Simmie Braxton, Mark Dixon, Aaron Anderson, Tandia ONeal, Cece McPherson, we had a guest named Sheila, I think she was from Louisiana, Lambert Davis from the CHEESECAKES fame, Yuseff and I hope I'm spelling his name correctly, and we welcomed a new COOL CRITIC, Saphyr Blue from WRTK Youngstown & SMTT broadcasting association. It was something to talk about...
All around the globe, people have their eyes on Ferguson Missouri. The people who claim the race baiters are equally busy to cap on an opportunity to further bleed their cause. Too many unarmed Black people, too many unarmed people, period, getting blasted by law enforcement. A few commentators are saying that the Black race is killing itself, why isn't anyone up in arms about that? The question is, why salt an open wound? It's not just the killing of unarmed Blacks, it's the stereotype that all Blacks are criminal. It's the daily treatment of little respect to Black people, you've heard the accusations that a Black man can't flag a cab down in New York. A couple of prominent celebrity Black actors proved that by attempting to hail a cab, and couldn't get one.
Mike Brown's funeral is being held this Monday. Is this the Judas piece the community needed to spark change and respect, or after he is buried, will the Black community get back in line and be abused? 347-205-9366.
