An unarmed man who was shot and killed by a police officer in North Carolina after a wreck was a former football player for Florida A&M University. Jonathan A. Ferrell, 24, played for the school in 2009-10 and had recently moved to North Carolina. Early Saturday, he had apparently been in a wreck and was seeking help at a nearby house, according to a statement from Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. A woman answered the door and, when she didn't recognize the man, called 911.
Is this another case of Travon Martin, where an unarmed black man shot by the police. Why, is this happening? Should there be a way to screen officers for the job? How can we stop the senseless shooting of unarmed, innocent, young black men? Call in with your comments today as well look at this growing problem in our communities. 646-716-6296

It is unlikely the town of Ferguson, Missouri will change in our lifetimes. The mainstream media has portrayed Ferguson, Missouri as a town of rioter’s and looter dismissing the fact the town of 21,203 (2010 census) is in a crisis. In a report from ArchCity Defenders — a legal group that “works to break the cycle of ‘revolving door justice’ in the St. Louis metropolitan area” — reveals that in 2013, “the Ferguson Municipal Court disposed 24,532 warrants and 12,018 cases, or about 3 warrants and 1.5 cases per household.” In Ferguson, the “majority (67%) of [the city's 21,203] residents are African-American” and “22% of residents live below the poverty level.” Despite Ferguson’s relative poverty, fines and court fees comprise the second largest source of revenue for the city, a total of $2,635,400 [...] According to a court employee, the docket for an average court session may include as many as 1,500 cases. Assuming an 80% conviction rate, the average fine in a case resulting in a guilty verdict would be $275.The local carnage happening over the last month and a half is a direct representation of what being poor, black and broke looks like in a town with no opportunities to rise beyond the mundane.
Another unarmed young black man shot and killed by a white police officer who's now charged with manslaughter. Do we hold our breathe, especially after witnessing, and hearing the injustices of the Trayvon Martin verdict?

Human rights organizations across the country are protesting the ongoing abuses of power by an increasingly militarized police force, demanding that officers who kill unarmed citizens be charged with homicide. Marches and rallies seem to have little effect, as more citizens come forth whose loved ones have been gunned down by overzealous police. What consequences should police suffer when they kill unarmed citizens? How can these human rights abuses be stopped? What body of authority needs to oversee judges, who continue to issue harsh sentences to individuals who have been tortured into false confessions or ill advised to plead guilty by attorneys with questionable ethics? As the Human Rights and Justice Committee of Missouri creates a National Registry to expose homicidal police officers and unjust judges, more citizens are challenging the police departments who killed their loved ones and received not so much as a reprimand. Many innocent citizens have been railroaded into jail by judges who knowingly sentenced innocent people to prison time. How do we remove people from power who are abusive and corrupt? What consequences should those who violated the public trust ultimately suffer? Our guests Yahkhanahn Ammi and Queen Tahira Sparks discuss strategy for punishing abuses of power and stopping those who violate the human rights of others.
we will discuss the recent cases MIKE BROWN CHARLES SMITH AND AND MORE .
Unarmed men are being shot and killed for no reason ... lets talk about it

Every day there seems to be a new and more distressing development in Ferguson, Missouri. New clashes with the police, military style equipment on the streets against unarmed civilians and the burning of the memorial for Michael Brown, each incident more aggressive and disrespectful than the last. One day the chief announces body cameras for officers, a positive step, and then ' clashes ' with law enforcement a few hours later. People around the globe are shocked at the world standard bearer for fair treatment and equality displaying this level of hatred for a group of its citizens. It is here that we must ensure that people understand, this is nothing new, truly it is par for the course and a reality America is still not ready to deal with honestly. The insistence by many that we now live in a post racial world is laughable to those of us who experience unfair and unjust treatment daily. Join us this Sunday, September 28th from 2p-4p CDT and listen in or share with us your opinions and experiences. Log on at www.blogtalkradio.com/rapsessions or call 347.857.2097 to participate.
