Issues

One election-year dilemma that faces the Democrats is whether or not President Obama should approve the completion of the Keystone XL pipeline. Tom Steyer, and other environmentalists, are committed to making “climate change a top-tier issue” in the elections with opposition to Keystone XL as “a significant part of that effort.”

 

Other issues include the income gap, net neutrality, and the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (commonly referred to as “Obamacare”).

 

According to the political commentator Stuart Rothenberg, the foreign policy crises plaguing the Middle East, Ukraine, and Russia are likely to dampen the public’s mood, hurting the Democratic Party’s chances in the federal elections of 2014

Thirty states currently have laws in place requiring voters to show identification at the polls, (11 require photo ID,) according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, and more look to be on the way.

 

Since the Supreme Court in June 2013, struck down a key provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which required certain states to get approval from the federal government on any changes made to voting laws, strict photo ID requirements in Mississippi and Texas no longer face roadblocks, and will likely be implemented in the near future. Alabama, Arkansas, and Virginia will become photo ID states in 2014. And North Carolina’s newly-signed photo ID requirement will go into effect in 2016.

 

Protect YOUR right to vote. Be prepared. Have The RIGHT ID. Know YOUR States Requirements To Legally Vote.

Rashad Robinson, ColorOfChange.org: #Ferguson Says “Shut It Down For #MikeBrown!”


itisme

Screenshot (1070)

 

The tragic police killing of 18-year-old Mike Brown hit home for millions across the country. The horror of losing a loved one, to senseless, racially-motivated police violence is a daily threat in the lives of Black people in America. In a time when law enforcement kill Black Americans at nearly the same rate as Jim Crow era lynchings,1 discriminatory and violent policing is a national crisis.

 

National leaders are paying more attention to racial profiling and police brutality than they have in years, due to the hard work of Black youth and community leaders in Ferguson and across the country.2 In order to capture the momentum of this moment and secure long-term, systemic reforms that transform policing nationwide, we need the federal government to intervene and set a higher standard of policing.

 

Demand a strong and enforceable federal prohibition on police brutality, a nationwide investigation into police violence in every state, and defunding of federal grants that incentivize abusive and militarized policing.

 

While we continue to fight for justice for Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Ramarley Graham and so many others whose lives have been taken at the hands of racially-motivated and violent local law enforcement, the federal government has a clear role to play in overturning the conditions that led to these tragedies, and setting a higher standard of policing across the country.In key ways, the standards, policies, and practices of the executive branch set the tone and tactics of local and state law enforcement.

 

For decades, our communities have worked tirelessly to combat the wholesale criminalization of Black Americans and the unimaginable police violence that threatens our children, parents, and friends every day. A walk to the store or drive to the mall have long held the risk of an unwarranted search, false arrest, or death. But we are in a historic time and how we capture this time will impact generations to come — the kind of world our children live in, the types of freedoms they have to fight for.

 

With Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation approaching, now is the time to push the Department of Justice to do much more.5Widespread public pressure can keep this issue at the top of the administration’s agenda, and push them to move forward before this major change in DOJ leadership. Next week, community members in Ferguson are organizing a Weekend of Resistance to build momentum for a nationwide movement to end police brutality.6 We need your support to move federal officials beyond symbolic actions to systemic reforms that protect the civil and human rights of all communities.

 

Join us in calling on the Obama administration, DOJ, and other federal agencies to take immediate action to strengthen police accountability and end discriminatory policing.

 

Thanks and Peace,

From The Daily KOS: Since St. Louis Has Decided Against Releasing A Report, Here’s The Timeline Of Mike Brown’s Murder.


 

dreamstime_xs_27320355

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11bottom

 

Since St. Louis has decided against releasing a report, here’s the timeline of Mike Brown’s death

 

by Shaun King for shaunking

 

Mike Brown, an unarmed teenager, was shot and killed in the middle of the street by Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson on a hot and hazy Saturday afternoon on August 9, 2014.

 

For over two months, people have practically begged the St. Louis County Police Department to release a detailed incident report of the shooting. Rather quietly, it was recently announced that the police will not be doing any such thing. In an interview with the Washington Post, Officer Brian Schellman, spokesman for the department, confirmed that that the police have no intention of releasing it whatsoever. Schellman said there are only two conditions in which the report will ever be released: If the grand jury in the Darren Wilson case decides against an indictment, or if Wilson is indicted and the report is used in court. Otherwise, we won’t be seeing it.

 

With this absence of information, the public has practically been forced to piece together public evidence to create a timeline of the day.

 

Below is a working theory of the killing of Mike Brown based on five things: six eyewitness accounts, confirmed audio of the fired gunshots, dozens of photos from the Aug. 9 shooting scene on Canfield Drive, visits to the crime scene by volunteers, and the publicly released autopsy results.

 

The typical police firearm usually holds 12-15 rounds (up to 17) to a magazine with possibly one bullet in the chamber, and Wilson may have nearly unloaded his entire gun during this incident.

 

Amazingly, a young man living in an apartment on Canfield Drive was using a mobile app called Glide in which he was recording a message to his girlfriend during the final moments of Brown’s life. The time stamp and location of the recording were authenticated by the technology company.

 

From the moment Mike Brown first saw Darren Wilson until he was laying face down, dead, on Canfield Drive, was less than two-and-half minutes. Jump below the fold for the timeline.

 

mike-brown-1

 

Before Glide App Video Messaging Audio:12:00 PM: Mike Brown and Dorian Johnson are casually walking in the middle of Canfield Drive. This was/is a common practice on this street on a Saturday afternoon in this neighborhood. They notice a police SUV coming toward them. 

12:00 PM: Officer Darren Wilson, driving past them, slows down and tells them “to get the fuck on the sidewalk.” Brown remains silent while Dorian Johnson tells Wilson that they are just a minute away from their destination.

 

12:00 PM: Wilson, having passed them by, violently puts the car in reverse, screeching the tires in the street, nearly hitting Brown and Johnson, who are forced to jump out of the way, stops right next to them, and thrusts open his door. The driver’s side door only opens only a few inches because it hits Mike Brown and ricochets back into Wilson.

 

12:01 PM: A struggle ensues at the window of the police SUV, which causes Brown to lose his red, fitted baseball cap, found at this exact location after the shooting. Wilson immediately grabs at the neck of Brown as Brown tries to pull away, Wilson pulls his weapon, and threatens to shoot Brown. Brown’s hands remain outside of the SUV, and he uses the vehicle as leverage to pull away.

 

During this struggle, the first shot is fired from inside the vehicle by Wilson. It hits Brown in his chest/arm area.

 

Fearing for their lives, Brown and Johnson flee in different directions. Brown loses one of his flip-flops approximately 20 feet from the SUV. Johnson hides behind a black Monte Carlo.

 

Wilson, gun drawn, exits his SUV and prepares to fire at a fleeing Brown.

 

Begin Glide App Audio:

12:02:14 PM.: Wilson pursues Brown as he flees some 100-plus feet from the police vehicle.  During the pursuit, firing at the back of Brown, Wilson fires shots two (12:02:16 PM), three (12:02:16 PM), four (12:02:17 PM), five (12:02:17 PM), and six (12:02:17 PM)within milliseconds under three seconds, missing a fleeing Brown.

 

12:02:18 PM: Shot seven grazes Brown’s right forearm, at which point Brown turns aroundto surrender. There is a three-second pause after shot seven, as Wilson continues his pursuit of a surrendering Brown, closing the pursuit gap significantly. Brown, with his hands up, says, “Okay, okay, okay. I’m unarmed, don’t shoot…” Before Brown can finish his plea, Wilson begins to fire the last four shots that hit Brown.

 

12:02:22 PM: In just under two seconds shots eight through eleven strike Brown (making the encounter from shots two through eleven mere milliseconds under eight seconds.)

 

Shots eight and nine (12:02:22 PM) strike Brown’s arm/hand while Brown’s hands are up. Brown’s hands come down and he staggers forward a few feet in the direction of Wilson.

 

12:02:23 PM: While falling to the ground, Brown cradles his arms close to him as Wilson fires shot ten (12:02:23 PM) into his eye and shot eleven (possible fatal bullet fired at 12:02:23 PM) into the top of his head.

 

12:02:25 PM: Brown is dead on Canfield Drive—over 108 feet away from Wilson’s SUV. The time from the confrontation at the SUV to Brown’s death takes just about one minute.

The MilitantNegro™ SoapBox: A Turning Point For Justice This Weekend….Or Not.


Mr MilitantNegro™

Vonderrit Myers Jr., pictured with his mother and alone, was shot dead by an off-duty police officer on Wednesday night. Police said he fled when approached by the officer and a fight ensued

On Wednesday, police in Missouri killed another young black man. Just two months since a police officer in Ferguson shot and killed Mike Brown, an off-duty St. Louis police officer fired between 16 and 18 shots at a teenager, Vonderrit Myers, Jr., killing him. Although police claim Myers shot at them, witnesses and relatives insist he was unarmed.

 

Mike Brown’s killer is still free, and it’s clear that discriminatory policing is still happening across the country. It’s time for justice. This weekend, activists are converging on Ferguson to build momentum for a nationwide movement against police violence. In solidarity, progressive groups from across the country are coming together to demand the federal government step in to help bring lasting, fundamental change to policing in America.

 

The federal government has the power to make sweeping changes that can expose and stop discriminatory policing. They don’t need to wait on Congress to act. Now is the time to urge President Obama and the Department of Justice to begin investigating and reforming unfair policing in America. By issuing executive orders and making changes to existing federal programs, the Obama Administration can ensure Ferguson is a turning point for justice.

 

BrRE77TIQAAQj4M doesbarackcare

 

Below are some of the important reforms that the White House, Department of Justice, and other federal agencies can start immediately — reforms that would finally address the discriminatory policing crisis:

 

  • A fully-resourced and rigorous investigation by the Department of Justice into discriminatory policing, excessive force, and death or injury by police in every state in the country.
  • A public national-level database of police shootings, excessive force, misconduct complaints, traffic and pedestrian stops, and arrests, broken down by race and other demographic data.
  • An end to federal grants and programs that incentivize the militarized and inhumane policing practices of the War on Drugs.
  • An executive order that creates a strong and enforceable prohibition on police brutality and discriminatory policing based on race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, age, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, immigration status, disability, and housing status.

 

These reforms will not just help address a long history of discriminatory policing in America. They will also help build better relationships between police and community members in neighborhoods across America. Those positive relationships are essential to protecting public safety and reducing crime — and in providing lasting justice for everyone in America.

St Louis Police “Story” Version:

 

Incident: Officer-Involved Shooting
Location: 4100 block of Shaw
Date/Time: 10/8/14 @ 19:28
Victim: 32-year old white male (St. Louis Police Officer with 6 years of service)
Suspect: Vonderrit D. Myers, Jr., 18-year old black male of the 4200 block of Castleman

 

jpg

The officer was working secondary for a private security company patrolling the Shaw neighborhood. As the officer drove past three males, one of the males began to run, but then stopped. The officer then did a u-turn, and observed the males run from the area. The officer followed the males’ path, through several streets, at one point exiting his vehicle, when he followed one of the males through a gangway. The officer observed the male running and holding his waistband, causing the officer to believe the suspect had a gun. The suspect then began to approach the officer in an aggressive manner.

 

The officer gave the suspect verbal commands, instructing him to surrender. The suspect continued to move toward the officer. The suspect and the officer then got into a physical altercation, with hands on each other. During the altercation, the suspect’s hooded sweatshirt came off of him. The suspect then ran from the officer, up a hill in the 4100 block of Shaw. At this time, the officer saw the suspect was armed with what he believed to be a gun. The officer wanted to be certain what the suspect had was a gun, and did not immediately fire at the suspect.

 

The suspect then turned toward the officer, pointed the gun at the officer and fired at least three rounds. Three projectiles were recovered going toward the officer, down the hill, with ballistic evidence, a bullet in a vehicle, located behind the officer. As the suspect fired at the officer, fearing for his safety, the officer returned fire. As the officer moved toward the suspect, the suspect continued to pull the trigger. Upon recovery of the gun, investigation revealed the gun had malfunctioned and had jammed after firing at least three rounds. As the suspect continued to point the gun toward the officer and pull the trigger, the officer continued to fire shots at the suspect, fatally wounding him.

 

The suspect was pronounced deceased on the scene. The suspect’s 9mm handgun was recovered at the scene. The gun was reported stolen on 9/26/14. Per department policy, the officer has been placed on administrative leave. To clarify, secondary employment allows officers to work security in uniform and carry their department-issued weapons. The officer, while not on duty for the Police Department, still has the same responsibilities and power to affect arrest and the officer operates in the capacity as a St. Louis Police Officer.

 

St. Louis Police Officers work secondary for securities companies, business establishments, sporting events, etc. The Force Investigative Unit responded and is investigating. The investigation is ongoing.

 

Updated at 3:45: This afternoon Mayor Francis Slay announced that Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce will team with the U.S. Attorney’s Office to determine what — if any — charges to file against the officer. That decision will come after the Force Investigative Unit delivers its case to the Circuit Attorney’s Office. And, like the situation in St. Louis County where a grand jury is determining whether to charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown, prosecutors plan to release all information regarding the case should charges not be issued. “I believe it will add an extra layer of independence to a policy that is already open and transparent,” said Slay in an online statement.

Family Of Slain 18 Year Old Vonderrit Myers, Jr, Version:

 

His family said he was still in high school and disputed police claims that he was armed.

‘He was unarmed,’ said his cousin, Teyonna Myers, to the Post-Dispatch. ‘He had a sandwich in his hand, and they thought it was a gun. It’s like Michael Brown all over again.’

The boy’s uncle, Jackie Williams, also says he is not buying the story being told by police.

‘My nephew was coming out of a store from purchasing a sandwich. Security was supposedly searching for someone else. They Tased him,’ Williams said.

‘I don’t know how this happened, but they went off and shot him 16 times. That’s outright murder.’

Officers are claiming they recovered a gun at the scene and that the officer did not have a Taser.

Another man, Lavell Boyd, who lives in the neighborhood, claimed to hear as many as 15 shots fired.

‘When I pulled up I saw the cop standing over him [Myers] then he pointed the gun at everyone else telling everyone to get back while he was searching for another clip,’ Boyd said.

News of the death quickly spread across social media and sparked more protests in the street – just the latest outcry after the death of Michael Brown.

David Carson, a photographer for the Post-Dispatch, reports that protesters filled the streets near where the shooting happened and have been chanting ‘Black lives matter.’

No Signs Of Gun On St Louis Teen Minutes Before He’S Shot By Cop

No Signs Of Gun On St Louis Teen Minutes Before He’S Shot By Cop

 

Newly-released CCTV footage shows Vonderrit Myers Jr buying a sandwich just moments before he was shot dead by an off-duty cop in Shaw, Missouri. There appears to be no sign of a gun although police claim he opened…

 
Store video shows St Louis teen buying a sandwich with friends just minutes before he was killed by off-duty police officer – and there is NO visible sign he had a gun

 

Surveillance video of Vonderrit Myers that has just been released shows the teenager purchasing a sandwich just moments before he was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer.
Myers, 18, is seen with friends at Shaw Market in Shaw, Missouri, walking around, talking and then heading back outside.
In the video, which is time-stamped a little after 7:00 pm, there is never any sign of a visible gun on Myers, who is wearing a fitted shirt and has his pants slung down low, leaving few places, if any, to conceal a weapon.
This comes as major protests and riots are beginning to break out in the area, with police even using pepper spray to control the crowds and protesters burning American flags.

Police claim that it was Myers who first opened fire on an unidentified 32-year-old officer that caused the officer to shoot and led to his fatal shooting, just a few feet away from the market.
He was struck by seven or eight bullets, St. Louis city Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Graham said Thursday night.

 
‘All but one gunshot wound were to the lower extremities,’ Graham said according to CNN.
‘The one fatal wound was to the head.’

The officer, who is a six-year veteran of the force, was in a car working a secondary job for a private security company and paroling the area when he saw three males in the street and thought they were acting suspiciously, St Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said in a press conference.
As he approached them, one of them started to run away, so the officer did a U-turn and then all three ran, Dotson said, the St Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

‘One of them ran in a way that the officer believed that he was armed with a gun – holding his waist band, not running at full stride,’ Dotson said, referring to Myers.
The officer, who was wearing a Metropolitan Police Department uniform, jumped out of his car and chased them on foot before getting into a scuffle with Myers, who reached for his gun, Dotson said.
Myers shot at least three times at the officer, who then returned fire – and when the teenager tried to fire again, his gun jammed, Dotson said.

The officer, a white male, then fired 17 times at the teenager. He died from his injuries.
Police recovered a 9mm Ruger at the scene, he said.
The officer was working for Hi-Tech Security, which employs several St. Louis police officers in secondary jobs. He was patrolling the neighborhood on behalf of the company rather than the Metropolitan Police Department but was wearing his police officer’s uniform.

 
He has been placed on administrative leave and an investigation is underway. He was not hurt.
Dotson said that the 18-year-old was ‘no stranger to law enforcement’, the St Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

 
He was wearing an ankle bracelet at the time as a condition of bail in a gun case, according to his lawyer and police, the Post-Dispatch reported.
The newspaper reported that Myers was due in court in November for unlawful use of a weapon and resisting arrest after he allegedly ditched a gun after jumping from a car that had been involved in a high-speed chase.

Police caught him nearby and recovered the loaded .380-caliber pistol he had allegedly dropped.
He was jailed for a few days before being released on $1,000 cash bond and fitted with an electronic monitoring device.
He was allowed to leave his home for work, school, court appearances, meetings with attorneys and meetings with the private monitoring firm, the Post-Dispatch reported.
His family said he was still in high school and disputed police claims that he was armed.

‘He was unarmed,’ said his cousin, Teyonna Myers, to the Post-Dispatch. ‘He had a sandwich in his hand, and they thought it was a gun. It’s like Michael Brown all over again.’
The boy’s uncle, Jackie Williams, also says he is not buying the story being told by police.

 
‘My nephew was coming out of a store from purchasing a sandwich. Security was supposedly searching for someone else. They Tased him,’ Williams said.

 
‘I don’t know how this happened, but they went off and shot him 16 times. That’s outright murder.’

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Nitorioussoapbox

 

Has anyone besides me noticed that since July the 17th, when Eric Garner was murdered in NYC law enforcement, there has been “one after another” of young Black men murdered by law enforcement? Has anyone besides me noticed the Department of Justice and The Obama administration, including Barack Hussein Obama himself, have been as silent as church mice pissing on cotton?

 

Where exactly is that hope and change we were told was on the way? How many Black Americans have to give their lives before the DOJ/Barack Obama steps in to overhaul the entire United States Of AmeriKKKa’s law enforcement agencies? How long before re-education is acknowledged as a solution to blatant racism by law enforcement?

 

HOW LONG?
