Death With Dignity?

Nearly seven in 10 Americans (68%) say doctors should be legally allowed to assist terminally ill patients in committing suicide, up 10 percentage points from last year. More broadly, support for euthanasia has risen nearly 20 points in the last two years and stands at the highest level in more than a decade.

Join The Conversation

Police and the African American Community

 The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing released its final report after six months of work. The report told us what we all know, “People are more likely to obey the law when they believe that those who are enforcing it have the legitimate authority to tell them what to do . . . .” The public confers legitimacy only on those they believe are acting in procedurally just ways. A Cleveland police officer who climbed onto the hood of a car after a chase and fired repeatedly at its unarmed occupants in 2012 was just acquitted of manslaughter on Saturday by an Ohio judge. 5 police officers have been killed in the line of duty and 26 people have been killed by police officers in America so far THIS MONTH.

 
What’s your take? What needs to happen to restore and in many cases build trust between police and African American communities?

    Reparations?

    Backed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago has agreed to pay 5.5million dollars to victims of police torture in 1970s and 80s  under the regime of a notorious former police commander, in an attempt to close a dark chapter in the city’s history.For the first time in America, this historic package of reparations will be paid out to living survivors, almost all African American men, who were mistreated in a long episode of police brutality that ran under Jon Burge.

     
    This gesture has renewed the debate over whether African Americans  should receive  reparations for the injustices of slavery and decades of discrimination that have followed. What’s Your Take? Let’s Talk About It!

    An openly gay Eagle Scott said he has been axed by the The Boy Scouts of America, one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. Brian Peffly believes it's because of his sexual orientation. He reportedly got a call and a letter from Boy Scouts of America revoking his membership. Boy Scouts of America  ended its ban on gay youth last year, but continues to forbid adult leaders who are "open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA."
     
    What’s your take? Should a person’s sexual orientation prohibit their participation in the Boys Scouts and other youth organizations?
