The events in Ferguson are tragic. But they should also provide lessons for us.
These lessons should apply to all of us especially those who are in social media and who consider themselves part of the media.
I have not been to Ferguson. But there's a chance I may be there soon. I want to tell you about a crowdfunding project that is going on that I'm involved in. You will be seeing more soon. Check out my website www.JohnDaly.tv and also www.thebreakingnewsnetwork.com and www.BreakingFergusonNews.com
We are going to try to put citizen journalist tools in the hands of people in Ferguson Missouri. This way they can report the story is they see it. However we want to add journalistic skills and integrity and tools to the mix. So it's not just here's a video and put it up without context. There has to be reporting that goes along with it. I recently wrote a blog about not jumping to conclusions about what happened in Ferguson Missouri. My point: wait until all the evidence is in and all the evidence has been weighed in and analyzed. Yet on my Facebook and twitter pages the responses have been incredibly biased. When the initial autopsy reports came out saying that Michael Brown had been shot six times the conclusions of people on social media was incredibly wide. I won't go into them but let's just say that the conclusions of these people were based on incomplete information mixed with their own biases. Again my point: let's wait for all the analysis and the evidence to be reviewed before we make decisions. All we are doing on social media is muddying up the waters. If your aim is to get noticed by a certain group based on a certain list of biases, that's fine. But don't consider yourself an agent of the news and information that is helpful to the country. Some tips while posting.
Ferguson, Missouri is out of control. I had a car insurance issue this week. Ernest is still causing problems for me. Yes I can use first names. He is still hostile and enemy driven. For what reason? He just loves to hate people.

Special Feature on Ferguson, Mo. from "Final Straw" as broadcast 18 August Ashville FM Community Radio. (58 MIN.) - from their summary: "This week we talk to Luka, a white anarchist from St. Louis who's been going to Ferguson and meeting folks and being in the streets with them, building relationships. Ferguson is a majority black city whose police force is 94% white. Luka talks about their experience of conversation with and struggle alongside of folks from a personal more than political standpoint, across racial lines. Luka gives a narrative of the days between the shooting of Mike Mike through Friday evening (08/15/14), when we spoke. There's discussion of police and protest tactics and how they've changed in the face of a week of gassing and rubber bullets met with molotovs and rocks."
The Taylor Report as aired 18 Aug. 2014, from Toronto, Canada community radio: "We are joined by Norman Otis Richmond, veteran of the struggle against racism on this continent. ... Richmond reminds us that Missouri had a long history of legal segregation. Richmond makes clear that Black leaders have to avoid the role of “buffer” for the White power structure of state and federal governments, and that it is time to resume the struggle for affirmative action to correct injustice that began with slavery.

Fasten your seat belts. It started with the Ferguson Police, then Missouri Governor called in the State Highway Patrol and now there is an effort to get the United Nations involved. With Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers along with others from out of state interfering with our community, it seems like they are inciting more national attention yet.
Tonight we have two special guests: A veteran police officer who worked in a nearby community, Dan Benson and William Grigg, former correspondent, researcher, and senior editor for The New American Magazine.
Now the police are arresting elected officials and the media for being present during the order to disburse. Who is in the right? What is right? Dan and William will share from their experiences and will explain the proper constitutional jurisdictions.

There have been a rash of images that have gone viral in the wake of Ferguson, but the one that struck home to the MOMocrats depicted Florida student Frances Francois holding up a sign reading: "I Can't Believe I STILL Have to Protest This S**T!!" Fifty years after Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law, we can't believe it, either. Michael Brown's killing by a Ferguson cop is not an isolated case -- unarmed people of color are killed by police in communities all over the country, the militarization of local forces is an ongoing and disturbing trend. MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills talk about the ongoing protests.
In the second half, Donna interviews California Assembly candidate Elizabeth Echols, the first of the MOMocrats series highlighting the campaigns of 2014 progressive women candidates.
Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
Michael Brown, an unarmed young black man in Ferguson, MO, was killed by a white police officer last week. The ensuing public outcry is showing no sign of abating. The community is demanding justice. Those in charge don't seem to know what to do.
From Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin to Sean Bell to Eric Garner to Michael Brown, this is an all too familiar scene in this country.
Join us and special guest Sharonda Allen for a discussion of the Michael Brown shooting and the aftermath - as the story continues to unfold - the devaluation of young black life in America and what we can do about it.
Please call 347-850-8445 to join the discussion.
