The thesis of this paper is that these events, in combination, confront the nation with a new kind of problem. Measures that have worked in the past, or would work for most groups in the present, will not work here. A national effort is required that will give a unity of purpose to the many activities of the Federal government in this area, directed to a new kind of national goal: the establishment of a stable Negro family structure.Moynihan Report (1965)
Kelling and Coles advocate an aggressive, get-tough confrontation of public disorder in its various forms: vagrancy, vandalism, panhandling, etc.George L. Kelling Broken Windows” thesis in 1982
Mr. Bratton should not be a once-innovative general fighting the last war. Mr. de Blasio was elected on a promise of being a transformative mayor who would recognize the times we live in and respect the communities whose residents fear the police. Now is the time to show it.
The mayor and the commissioner should also begin a serious discussion of the future of “broken windows” policing, the strategy of relentlessly attacking petty offenses NYT
Scripture says to mankind: Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. It is evident in the constant deaths of innocent citizens that love is the missing element. Policing is not just an occupation. Policing is a behaviour. Policing have never been done properly, not even from the beginning. Policing has been geared toward the have vs have nots. Policing has been geared toward whites vs blacks. Policing has perpetrated advancement, when in actually advancement is limited by politics. Control is the name of policing. Control is the name of politics. The two have joined forces and brutality shows up because policing has to much of a foundation in identifying suspect citizens. Translation, identifying people you already don't trust. Translation, minorities are suspects. The results is stop and frisk is lawfult, being a minority is unlawful until proven otherwise. Police brutality is the result of people with no respect for groups of people patrolling communities where they do not respect the residents. This is a job for the police, right? Wrong! This is a job for well trained human beings who want what's best for the greater good. Too many police on forces are there to prove their opinions/suspicions correct. The brutality is there when such people put on the policing badges. The people wearing badges who are not involved, become involved because they want to keep making money. Just like media lie to keep tmaking money. Politicians lie to keep making money. CEOs lie to keep making money. And all of the above are indeed citizens that come from amongst other citizens. We have to have open dialogue without casting blame. We have to root out the problem of police brutality. Admit policing is one of those occupations without proper training. Start real neighhood policing, namely, hire my brother/sister policing. This show honors #MikeBrown's 1st day of college.

There's a movement growing across America. The movement is on track to change a lot of things that are required for the best America ever. One of the ways this movement will end in the best America ever, is that all Americans will be included. The movement began in Ferguson Missouri. This will be a first. America has come a long ways but justice for all Americans has never been part of the fabric of America as will be required this time. When we speak of justice likely the mind goes toward the courts. Well justice in the courts is at the top of the list. But justice begins with truth and righteousness. When we think in this manner about justice the average working person, who is the backbone of America will realize immediately, justice has not prevailed and the result has not been things that are good. every includes all Americans. There are four area where we are going to see justice prevail across America as a direct result of the young people of Ferguson standing up for justice. The stand taken by the up and rising society of Ferguson will not be welcomed by all, but in decades to come, all America will benefit. The same thing happened in the 1960's when there were demonstrations for freedom of blacks to get jobs, eliminate police brutality, right to vote without losing jobs and life. Ferguson is actually fighting a fight that has aleady been fought. The difference is no water hose, but guns, and not all blacks see themselves as being in the shoes of Ferguson. Some people are blaming Ferguson for where they are today. The fact is America is in America today, more than ever before corporations are ruling our ever move. From conception to education, to punishments to economics, to inheritance. ALEC is the organization that controls America and ALEC is the organization that has to be put out of business. The only way to cease the practices of ALEC in America is to vote out the GOP.

Before Eric Garner was killed by NYC police officers,his last words before the fatal chokehold were, "THIS STOPS NOW".
City and political leaders across the country have accepted one "police death" after another. Some of them many Black people supported enthusiastically. How do we hold them accountable and when for the culture of violence under which law enforcement operates? When do WE draw the line in the sand?

Hands Up Don't Shoot is Ferguson's call to Justice. Justice for Mike Brown. Justice in the courts now and hereafter. Judicial, economic, and social justice is being attacked daily in communities like Ferguson all acorss America. It is the community of Ferguson that have stood up, with hands up and made their mark as the thumbprint of what an America of equality should look like. Ferguson asks for Justice in the courts, Justice in employment opportunities, pay, benefits, and social justice with adequate representation in community services like policing, boards, legislators. Social equality must be reflected in schools, housing, medical institutions, roads and grant and loan opportunities from community banking to grow community businesses.
Ferguson residents who critized the non arrest of the shooter has been treated as terrorists. Ferguson residents who supports the shooter has been treated as all American citizens should be treated. Police departments from several areas participated in a practice exercise on use of warfare equipment against those who object to a live being taken with no arrest. The draw down on American citizens was absolutely unnecessary. It was extreme, war like, and I have not doubt that community will need therapy for years to come. Those actions have been internalized and will show up in the daily lives of the community of Ferguson if not across America. America must take this hands up symbol as a surrender to completely repair what ails this country. The remnants of slavery that has embedded itself socially, economically and in the judicial system
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..
