Welcome the the Seriouside of the jrilshow, this morning we will be discuss the following topics
9:00am NETANYAHU'S SPEECH TO CONGRESS
9:30am: EMAILGATE HILLARY CLINTON
10:00am: DOJ'S REPORT ON RACISM IN FERGUSON POLICE DEPT
On tonight's segment of CENTER STAGE we will look at the recent shooting of two police officers in Ferguson. Some are trying to blame protesters, despite the Department of Justice's new report showing FPD targeted Black people to generate revenue for the city. This leaves many at a lost, questioning why anyone would think the protesters would respond negatively now, when they hadn't before. This week the DOJ also announced a national initiative to combat police misconduct. It named 6 cities to use as pilots to look at the relationship between the police and communities...This should be a very interesting show seeing that Fort Worth, TX has been chosen as one of the cities. This is the same police department that has harassed Center Stage's host/producer Kheri Hines for almost 4 years. We will also look at Rep. Jason Vilalba (R-Texas) proposing a bill that would make it illegal to film the police unless you are part of the mainstream media. Lastly, we will examine the socioeconomic agenda for the poor. Don't you dare miss this show.
Listen to socio-political analyst Cleo Manago discuss, Two officers shot in Ferguson... Don't Shoot Them Down, Shut Them Down!
Two cops were shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department early Thursday. The shots were fired just as a small crowd of protesters began to break up after holding a demonstration in the wake of the resignation of the Ferguson police chief, who stepped down Wednesday.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said one officer was shot in the face, just below his right eye, with the bullet lodging behind his ear. The other officer was hit in the shoulder, and the bullet came out his back.
------As the Department of Justice prepares to release its full report into the Ferguson Police Department and Municipal Court System, it is becoming increasingly clear that the entire Ferguson Police Department may be forced to shut down.
Local authorities consistently approached law enforcement not as a means for protecting public safety, but as a way of generating revenue,” Holder said, adding that “racial bias both implicit and explicit” results in the unconstitutional execution of the law.
The thing is, though, the last department that Darren Wilson worked for, before he was allowed to transfer to the Ferguson Police Department, was also disbanded over severe issues of racism and corruption.
We will be discussing the complexities that exist in the relationship between law enforcement and minoritiy communities. We'll discuss the recently released President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing and the United States Department of Justice's Investigation of the Ferguson Police Department reports. Where do we go from here?

The Department of Justice just released it's report on the Ferguson police department. The report only confirmed what the people been saying. Black people were victims of racial profiling,intimidation,harassment,and oppression. This report is systematic racism at it's purest form. Where do we go from here? What actions shall we take as a community since we have this information?
Months after Attorney General Eric Holder launched an investigation of Ferguson Police Department in the wake of Michael Brown’s death, the Department of Justice released a102-page report detailing systemic race discrimination and abuses of power in the embattled city. But despite the DOJ’s damning findings, the city’s mayor remains unconvinced that widespread problems exist.
According to the DOJ’s findings, The Justice Department investigation found that Brown reached into Wilson’s squad car and that a struggle ensued. Prosecutors couldn’t corroborate Wilson’s claim that Brown reached for his gun, but couldn’t find any evidence to disprove Wilson’s account. Brown moved at least 180 feet away from Wilson, but then turned and moved toward the officer, prosecutors said. Several witnesses claimed that Brown had his hands up, signaling surrender, when Wilson shot him. Some gave varying accounts, and some later recanted those claims made in media interviews.
