What's Going On In Ferguson?

A little over a week ago, Michael Brown, an unarmed 18 year old African American male, was shot and killed by Ferguson Missouri Police Officer Darren Wilson. The chief announced in a subsequent news conference the officer had no knowledge of Brown as a suspect when he shot Brown. He later acknowledged that the Officer may have seen cigars in Michael’s hands after he stopped him and a friend for walking in the middle of the street.

Michael Brown's family and legal representatives said they were "outraged'' that Ferguson Chief Thomas Jackson implicated the teenager as a suspect in a theft of cigars from a convenience store at the same time the long-sought identity of the shooter, Officer Darren Wilson, was disclosed.

What’s your Take? Do you think that there is a deliberate effort by police to impugn the character of Michael Brown, who eyewitnesses report was killed with his hands raised in submission to police? Can and will justice be served in the midst of what many believe to be a campaign to assassinate the character of this unarmed 18 year old?

Has The Militarization Of Police Gone Too Far?

The Ferguson Missouri Police Department acquired two armored Humvees and other military gear for free through a Pentagon program that critics blame for "militarizing America's Main Streets" and aggravating clashes between police and protesters.Ferguson Missouri, the hometown of   slain 18 year old Michael Brown, with a population of approximately 22,400, looked more like a war zone in the days following the killing of Brown by Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson. News footage revealed images of rolling armored vehicles and police in military grade body armor, toting short barreled assault rifles.
 

What’s your Take? How do you feel about local law enforcement departments being armed with full military gear?  Do you think this Pentagon program will lead to further clashes between citizens and police?

How Much Is Too Much?

The “choking game” and  "Fire Challenge” have sparked a social media craze with teenagers posting photos and videos of people choking themselves for a brief high that causes people to pass out – or pouring isopropyl alcohol on themselves  and setting themselves on fire in the shower. When you add the endless videos of young girls (and some guys) twerking, backyard fights and  a challenge daring someone to swallow a spoonful of ground cinnamon in 60 seconds without water, you have to ask yourself how much is too much when it comes to these deadly  social media challenges?


What’s Your Take? I am and have always been an advocate for freedom of expression, but have we come to the point where we should consider more regulation of social media and if so how?

What's Your Take?

President Obama authorized "targeted" air strikes last Thursday to protect American interests in Iraq from insurgent forces that are taking over the country’s northern cities. The President stated that "As commander in chief, I will not allow the United States to be drawn into fighting another war in Iraq." “Today, America is coming to help; the U.S. cannot turn a blind eye.” Senator John McCain feels that President Obama’s limited strikes on ISIS in northern Iraq are “pinpricks” that are “meaningless” and “worse than nothing.”


Do you agree with President Obama's decision to authorize air strikes against ISIS terrorists in Iraq?
