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?

I'm TJ and that's what I'm talking 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.
On this episode we had planned to have fun and celebrate our 100th episode, but we decided to recognize the events of the week.
In what has become an all too common occurance, this week another unarmed Black Man lost his life in an encounter with a law enforcement officer. The life and death of Brothers like Mike Brown, Sean Bell, Aaron Campbell, Eric Garner, and others, highlight the consistant threat that exist for the Men of Color. But this event had additional complexities with the responce of the city police and flashback images of the Civil Rights Era. We discuss the various aspects of these events.
We look at police action against People of Color, the militarization of local police, media coverage of the events, and we talk about solutions.
On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we sit down with Michelle Whitfield, AJ Miller and Joe Paul as we discuss the devastating events and overwhelming amount of police presence and force occurring in Ferguson, Missouri after the execution of Mike Brown, an unarmed teenager, by Darren Wilson, a Ferguson police officer.
Eye-witness reports say that Mike Brown was pleading for his life before the officer shot Brown six times, twice in his head in broad daylight and left him in the middle of the street for more than 4 hours. Our conversation surrounds race relations in America, the tragic senseless hunting and killing of black men, what we can do as a society and helping America shine a brighter light on institutionalized racism.
The time for a change is long overdue. We will discuss how we can get there.
Thank you for tuning in.

In a recent article by the Christian Science Monitor, one young man named Anthony Pruitt walked up to the Missouri State Highway Patrol in the midst of the protests saying.. “We hurt, we broken, and we ain’t all criminals,” Mr. Pruit said. He then pulled down his bandanna to show his face, which was by then streaked with tears. “How can y’all fix this?” One difficult question you might ask, however it is one that needs to be addressed. Of course the portests and riots were a direct result of and unarmed 18 year old young black man named Michael Brown being shot several times by a white officer named Darren Wilson. Every since then it has created racial tensions, the resurface of questionable tactics by law enforcement, and including the constant search for answers as to why these type of incidents continue to plague our communities. What as a community can we truly do to combat these travesties? What can we teach our young men about how to avoid these situations? Join another edition of Open Treasures as we attempt to tackle the question...What do we do next?
Since the Ferguson, Missouri uprising over the killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown, hoards of stories have surfaced exposing the wrongful killing and incarceration of African American males across America, in many large urban areas but quite oftn in small towns where an oppressive racial climate still exists despite Civil Rights legislation and an African American president in the White House. A horror story of total disregard for the law has emerged from Putnam County Georgia, where police appear to have conspired with lawyers an judges to imprison African American teen Damiean Wicks for shooting Rontavious Crawford, even though Rontavious pointed out the white man Phillip Calloway as the guilty party. Phillip Calloway, identified in court by the victim as the culprit, verified as being at the scene of the crime by cell phone tracking evidence, admitted to irratic behavior due to drug use. He was merely sent to rehab, while Damiean Wicks, dismissed by the victim Rontavious Crawford as being innocent and proved nowhere near the scene of the crime by cell phone tracking evidence, was nevertheless convicted as guilty imprisoned. His grandmother, Judy Farley, has launched a campaign to free her grandson Damiean and is calling for intervention by the U.S. Justice Department in this small town of Eatonton Georgia where whites in authority have seemingly tossed justice to the wind while they jail and kill blacks at whim. Today's guest, Judy Farley tells her incredible story. What happens when law enforcement officers and the courts in a city are all corrupt? How can citizens get justice? What would make the Federal government intervene? Will it take another riot?
