Darren Wilson resigns


Originally posted on theGrio:

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The white police officer who killed Michael Brown has resigned from the Ferguson Police Department, his attorney said Saturday, nearly four months after the fatal confrontation with the black 18-year-old that fueled protests in the St. Louis suburb and across the nation.

Darren Wilson, 28, has been on administrative leave since the shooting on Aug. 9. His resignation was announced Saturday by one of his attorneys, Neil Bruntrager. The resignation is effective immediately, Bruntrager said.

A grand jury spent more than three months reviewing evidence in the case before declining in November to issue any charges against Wilson. He told jurors that he feared for his life when Brown hit him and reached for his gun.

The U.S. Justice Department is still conducting a civil rights investigation into the shooting and a separate probe of police department practices.

The shooting struck up a national debate…

ABC News and George Stephanopoulos paid Darren Wilson Mid-to-High’ Six Figures For Interview. To Lie.

ABC News and George Stephanopoulos paid Darren Wilson Mid-to-High’ Six Figures For Interview. To Lie.

ABC Paid ‘Mid-to-High’ Six Figures For #DarrenWilson Interview

BY   For GOTNEWS

 

A NBC source with knowledge of the #DarrenWilson interview talks said that ABC offered to pay “mid-to-high” six figures for the interview.

 

The source did not say an exact figure because NBC stopped bidding for it after ABC upped the ante.

 

The taped interview was shot on Tuesday. Clinton operative-turned ABC News host George Stephanopoulos will do the interview.

 

The choice for Stephanopoulos is curious given that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon was once touted as a potential running mate to Hillary Clinton.

ABC Violated Its Own Rules When It Paid For #DarrenWilson Interview

ABC News appears to have violated its own rules when it paid for Darren Wilson’s interview, Gotnews.com has learned.

 

In an interview with the Plain Dealer, Jeffrey W. Schneider, ABC News’ senior vice president for communications, said that the network doesn’t pay for interviews.

 

But ABC, like the other networks, says it won’t pay for exclusive interviews, known as checkbook journalism. Jeffrey W. Schneider, ABC News’ senior vice president for communications, confirmed the network’s policy of not compensating for interviews. (Mark Dawidziak, “Network reporters race to reach Cleveland, story,” Plain Dealer, May 8, 2013).

 

Darren Wilson today, just like George Zimmerman in 2012, doesn’t understand this is not a legal case – it’s a political case using the legal system….

I refuse to show the entire Darren Wilson interview, find that garbage on your own if you want to see a circus of lies, this is good enough for witnessing lies and misinformation.

 

Darren Wilson defends shooting Michael Brown

 

How Much Did ABC Pay for the Darren Wilson Interview?

 

Figures are starting to pop up on Twitter. One I saw placed the number in the “mid to high six figures.” Even if that’s probably high (I don’t know, is it?), even if he was in the mid-to-high five figures, it strikes me as utterly reprehensible. ABC news is essentially paying this guy tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars?

 

He killed a young man. I say murdered, but we must at least admit that he is being paid for having been the one who killed this young man.

 

This is beyond what I will accept from a news organization at this point. I have had well and truly enough. Not only should ABC News be boycotted forever, but they should be actively protested at every opportunity.

 

Stephanopoulos is horrible, and his organization is total garbage. Wilson, meanwhile is benefiting to the tune of tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, and that’s above whatever his asinine followers contributed to his virtually unneeded “legal defense fund” (the citizens of St. Louis County got to pay for his legal defense and his prosecution all in one paycheck!).

George Stephanopoulos’ Darren Wilson Interview Speaks Volumes About ABC News

George Stephanopoulos’ interview with Darren Wilson – the police officer who killed African-American teenager Michael Brown – tells us a lot more about ABC News than it does about what actually happened that day in Ferguson, Mo.

 

Wilson’s account of events was hardly unexpected. He sounded like someone who had been well coached by attorneys, both in regard to potential criminal charges and a possible wrongful-death civil lawsuit. Stephanopoulos mischaracterized his demeanor as “very clinical,” when the better description would be “very lawyered up,” which is strictly an observation, not a criticism.

 

ABC, by contrast, approached its coup of landing the first sit-down chat with Wilson in an unorthodox way, or at least one that says a great deal about the network’s priorities, which have been crystal clear since Stephanopoulos – as host of “Good Morning America” – was designated the principal breaking-news and big-event anchor, putting him a rung above “World News’” David Muir within the ABC News hierarchy.

 

Thank you  Got News for your contributions to this post.

Darren Wilson received over $400,000 from donations through GOFUNDME before that was shut down due to outraged protest. The donations were said to be for legal fees and living expenses.

 

Darren Wilson was and is employed by the Ferguson PD, which has a police union that provides legal defense of all it’s officers, including those who murder unarmed Black teens. No legal defense fund was necessary.

 

Darren Wilson was and is employed by the Ferguson PD and was on “paid” administrative leave from August 9th until November 24th, the entire 107 days. He received his salary, so no living expenses were necessary.

 

My question is this, if he didn’t need donations for living expenses since he was being paid, and if he didn’t need a legal fund since police union provided him with a lawyer, which he never had a need for, why is Darren Wilson allowed to keep close to $500,000, or $400,000 (depending on whom you believe) in donations? Is that fraud?

 

Why is a killer allowed to reap benefits from killing? Civil Trial People.

Black Genocide: The Roll Call


itisme

The unknown number of people killed in police-involved shootings each year, as FiveThirtyEight reports:

 

Efforts to keep track of “justifiable police homicides” are beset by systemic problems. “Nobody that knows anything about the SHR puts credence in the numbers that they call ‘justifiable homicides,’” when used as a proxy for police killings, said David Klinger, an associate professor of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Missouri who specializes in policing and the use of deadly force. And there’s no governmental effort at all to record the number of unjustifiable homicides by police. If Brown’s homicide is found to be unjustifiable, it won’t show up in these statistics.

 

4%

The percentage of American law enforcement agencies that report any police-involved shootings to the FBI’s database — 700 out of a total of 17,000,according to USA Today. These agencies only record so-called “justifiable homicides,” or incidents in which an armed suspect was shot by police. All in all, we’re left with a reporting system that tells us very little about how many people are killed by police, and nothing about those killed in an unjust fashion

 

 

In a short but powerful segment, Melissa Harris-Perry connected the recent police killing of Michael Brown to the deaths of other black men at the hands of police — and to America’s history of injustice towards black people.

 

Harris-Perry read the names of some of the hundreds of men who were killed by police across the country “in the past decade alone,” from Sean Bell to Oscar Grant to Eric Garner to Brown. All of the men she mentioned were unarmed at the time of their death.

 

In the past decade alone, these men and hundreds of others have lost their lives to police.

 

“From 2006 to 2012 a white police officer killed a black person at least twice a week in this country,” she said.

 

She then noted that Ferguson, where Brown was shot dead, is close to the place from which the slave Dred Scott waged a legal battle for his freedom. She quoted from the notorious Supreme Court case which rejected Scott’s claim because, in the infamous words of Chief Justice Roger Taney, he had “no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”

Harris-Perry repeated that last phrase over and over again, as images of police in Ferguson flashed behind her.

I am 100% certain I have missed many, can’t find a comprehensive list of the Black people gunned down by AmeriKKKan Law Enforcement because there are no comprehensive records kept.

 

stop_black_genocide

 

If we want to know how many Justifiable Homicides occur by Police or Private Citizens we can get those number easily.  This is them.

 

Justifiable Homicides:
Year     Police      Citizen
2007   398       252
2008   378       265
2009   414       266
2010   397       285
2011   393       260
2012   409       330

 

But if we want to know how many Law Enforcement Shootings are “Unjustified” – we get no answer from the FBI.  None.

 

One source, in a report called “Operation Ghetto Storm” says that in 2012 that of the 739 “Justified” shootings shown above from 2012, 313 of them were Black.  44% of them or 136, were unarmed. 27% of them (83) were claimed by Law Enforcement to have Gun at the time of the shooting, but that could not be later confirmed or the “gun” was in fact, a toy or other non-lethal object. 20% of them (62) were confirmed to have been armed with a gun, knife or cutting tool.

 

91% of the people killed by Police in Chicago in 2012 were Black. 87% in New York. 100% in Saginaw and Rockford.  I gotta admit even after focusing on this subject for over 30 years, since Ron Settles was killed, I find that kind of shocking.  

 

The report goes on to say that 47% of these killings (146 cases) occurred not because of the person brandishing a weapon (as noted above less then 30% of them HAD a weapon, or were even thought to have a weapon), it’s because the Officer or Citizen – “felt threatened” and were in “fear”.  In only 8% (25 cases) did the suspect fire or discharge a weapon that wounded or killed Police or others while Officers were on the scene.

 

Only eight (8) Officers were Charged with Murder, Manslaughter or use of excessive force in these case.

 

Is this report comprehensive? Is it fully accurate? I don’t know, it’s gone through several revisions and updates as none of the data is being officially compiled anywhere and some things can be missed that way.

 

This summer ColorLines and The Chicago Reporter conducted a joint national investigation of fatal police shootings in America’s 10 largest cities, each of which had more than 1 million people in 2000. Several striking findings emerged.

 

To begin, African Americans were overrepresented among police shooting victims in every city the publications investigated.

 

The contrast was particularly noticeable in New York, San Diego and Las Vegas. In each of these cities, the percentage of black people killed by police was at least double that of their share of the city’s total population.

 

They analyzed the data from the Ten Largest Cities and in Every City – every single one – had double the number of black shooting victims than their proportion in the population.

 

And it’s not just happening to Black People.

 

Starting in 2001, the number of incidents in which Latinos were killed by police in cities with more than 250,000 people rose four consecutive years, from 19 in 2001 to 26 in 2005. The problem was exceptionally acute in Phoenix, which had the highest number of Latinos killed in the country.

 

Despite these persistent problems of disproportionate police force in communities of color,a disturbing lack of accountability plagues several of the cities examined.

 

In Chicago, for example, an examination of media accounts shows that only one shooting out of the 84 fatal police shootings occurred since 2000 has been found unjustified. Monique Bond, spokeswoman at the Chicago Police Department, said that more than one shooting had been determined to have been outside department guidelines, but could not provide specific numbers.

President Barack Hussein Obama Addresses The 2014 Mid Term Elections.

 

Published on Nov 5, 2014

Following Republicans’ big wins in the Senate and House on election night, President Barack Obama and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said they would try to avoid the gridlock that has gripped the government lately.

“To everyone that voted — I hear you,” Obama said in news conference Wednesday. “To the two-thirds who didn’t participate, I hear you too.”

 

 

Yesterday, millions of Americans cast their ballots. Republicans had a good night, and I congratulate all the candidates who won.

 

But what stands out to me is that the message Americans sent yesterday is one you’ve sent for several elections in a row now. You expect the people you elect to work as hard as you do. You expect us to focus on your ambitions — not ours — and you want us to get the job done. Period.

 

I plan on spending every moment of the next two years rolling up my sleeves and working as hard as I can for the American people. This country has made real and undeniable progress in the six years since the 2008 economic crisis. But our work will not be done until every single American feels the gains of a growing economy where it matters most: in your own lives.

 

While I’m sure we’ll continue to disagree on some issues that we’re passionate about, I’m eager to work with Congress over the next two years to get the job done. The challenges that lay ahead of us are far too important to allow partisanship or ideology to prevent our progress as a nation.

 

Screenshot (1830)

 

As we make progress, I’ll need your help, too. Over the weeks and months ahead, I’ll be looking to Americans like you, asking you to stay engaged.

 

I am optimistic about our future. Because for all the maps plastered across our screens today, for all the cynics who say otherwise, we are more than a simple collection of red and blue states. We are the United States.

 

And yesterday, millions of Americans — Democrats and Republicans, women and men, young and old, black and white — took the time out of their day to perform a simple, profound act of citizenship. That’s something we shouldn’t forget amid the din of political commentary. Because making progress starts with showing up.

 

Let’s get to work.

President Barack Obama

Remarks by the President in a Press Conference

East Room

2:57 P.M. EST

THE PRESIDENT:  Good afternoon, everybody.  Have a seat.

Today, I had a chance to speak with John Boehner and congratulated Mitch McConnell on becoming the next Senate Majority Leader.  And I told them both that I look forward to finishing up this Congress’ business, and then working together for the next two years to advance America’s business.  And I very much appreciated Leader McConnell’s words last night about the prospect of working together to deliver for the American people. On Friday, I look forward to hosting the entire Republican and Democratic leadership at the White House to chart a new course forward.

Obviously, Republicans had a good night, and they deserve credit for running good campaigns.  Beyond that, I’ll leave it to all of you and the professional pundits to pick through yesterday’s results.  What stands out to me, though, is that the American people sent a message, one that they’ve sent for several elections now.  They expect the people they elect to work as hard as they do.  They expect us to focus on their ambitions and not ours.  They want us to get the job done.

All of us, in both parties, have a responsibility to address that sentiment.  Still, as President, I have a unique responsibility to try and make this town work.  So, to everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you.  To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too.  All of us have to give more Americans a reason to feel like the ground is stable beneath their feet, that the future is secure, that there’s a path for young people to succeed, and that folks here in Washington are concerned about them.  So I plan on spending every moment of the next two-plus years doing my job the best I can to keep this country safe and to make sure that more Americans share in its prosperity.

This country has made real progress since the crisis six years ago.  The fact is more Americans are working; unemployment has come down.  More Americans have health insurance.  Manufacturing has grown.  Our deficits have shrunk.  Our dependence on foreign oil is down, as are gas prices.  Our graduation rates are up.  Our businesses aren’t just creating jobs at the fastest pace since the 1990s, our economy is outpacing most of the world.  But we’ve just got to keep at it until every American feels the gains of a growing economy where it matters most, and that’s in their own lives.

Screenshot (1821)

Obviously, much of that will take action from Congress.  And I’m eager to work with the new Congress to make the next two years as productive as possible.  I’m committed to making sure that I measure ideas not by whether they are from Democrats or Republicans, but whether they work for the American people.  And that’s not to say that we won’t disagree over some issues that we’re passionate about.  We will.  Congress will pass some bills I cannot sign.  I’m pretty sure I’ll take some actions that some in Congress will not like.  That’s natural.  That’s how our democracy works.  But we can surely find ways to work together on issues where there’s broad agreement among the American people.

So I look forward to Republicans putting forward their governing agenda.  I will offer my ideas on areas where I think we can move together to respond to people’s economic needs.

So, just take one example.  We all agree on the need to create more jobs that pay well.  Traditionally, both parties have been for creating jobs rebuilding our infrastructure — our roads, bridges, ports, waterways.  I think we can hone in on a way to pay for it through tax reform that closes loopholes and makes it more attractive for companies to create jobs here in the United States.

We can also work together to grow our exports and open new markets for our manufacturers to sell more American-made goods to the rest of the world.  That’s something I’ll be focused on when I travel to Asia next week.

Screenshot (1818)

We all share the same aspirations for our young people.  And I was encouraged that this year Republicans agreed to investments that expanded early childhood education.  I think we’ve got a chance to do more on that front.  We’ve got some common ideas to help more young people afford college and graduate without crippling debt so that they have the freedom to fill the good jobs of tomorrow and buy their first homes and start a family.

And in the five states where a minimum wage increase was on the ballot last night, voters went five for five to increase it. That will give about 325,000 Americans a raise in states where Republican candidates prevailed.  So that should give us new reason to get it done for everybody, with a national increase in the minimum wage.

So those are some areas where I think we’ve got some real opportunities to cooperate.  And I am very eager to hear Republican ideas for what they think we can do together over the next couple of years.  Of course, there’s still business on the docket that needs attention this year.  And here are three places where I think we can work together over the next several weeks, before this Congress wraps up for the holidays.

First, I’m submitting a request to Congress for funding to ensure that our doctors, scientists, and troops have the resources that they need to combat the spread of Ebola in Africa and to increase our preparedness for any future cases here at home.

Second, I’m going to begin engaging Congress over a new Authorization to Use Military Force against ISIL.  The world needs to know we are united behind this effort, and the men and women of our military deserve our clear and unified support.

Third, back in September, Congress passed short-term legislation to keep the government open and operating into December.  That gives Congress five weeks to pass a budget for the rest of the fiscal year.  And I hope that they’ll do it in the same bipartisan, drama-free way that they did earlier this year.  When our companies are steadily creating jobs — which they are — we don’t want to inject any new uncertainty into the world economy and to the American economy.

The point is it’s time for us to take care of business.  There are things this country has to do that can’t wait another two years or another four years.  There are plans this country has to put in place for our future.

And the truth is I’m optimistic about our future.  I have good reason to be.  I meet Americans all across the country who are determined, and big-hearted, and ask what they can do, and never give up, and overcome obstacles.  And they inspire me every single day.  So the fact is I still believe in what I said when I was first elected six years ago last night.  For all the maps plastered across our TV screens today, and for all the cynics who say otherwise, I continue to believe we are simply more than just a collection of red and blue states.  We are the United States.

And whether it’s immigration or climate change, or making sure our kids are going to the best possible schools, to making sure that our communities are creating jobs; whether it’s stopping the spread of terror and disease, to opening up doors of opportunity to everybody who’s willing to work hard and take responsibility — the United States has big things to do.  We can and we will make progress if we do it together.  And I look forward to the work ahead.

So, with that, let me take some questions.  I think that our team has got my list.  And we’re going to start with Julie Pace at Associated Press.

The Oscar-winning actress became endorsed by the beauty brand in April – and her first ad highlight’s Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation, a smooth blemish-free product which is “available in 28 shades for all skintones.”

 

The foundation is being touted as one of the brand’s more diverse products, which provides “endless perfection” for women of almost every complexion.

 

And with the current Vogue magazine cover girl promoting their product, Lancôme seems to be sending a message of appreciation for diversity and consumers of color.

Going Where No “We The Geeks” Has Gone Before

 

This afternoon, we’re celebrating the end of National Oceans Month and one year of progress on President Obama’s Climate Action Plan — so we’re diving into ocean science by hearing from an expert living 63 feet below the surface.

 

At 2:00 p.m. ET, the White House and the Weather Channel will host “We the Geeks: SUBMERGED!” to discuss the importance of oceans to our way of life and how oceans both contribute to and are impacted by climate change and weather patterns — with one of our participants streaming live from the ocean floor!

Join pioneers of ocean exploration and experts on weather and climate science on a Google+ Hangout at 2:00 p.m. ET. They’ll share what scientists know about how oceans are the critical engine of the climate and weather we experience above the surface.

Senate Democrat: Obama ‘Must’ Come to Congress Before Iraq Military Action

 

Published on Jun 25, 2014

A longtime ally of President Barack Obama says he must come to Congress before taking military action in Iraq, except to secure the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., the former head of the Democratic National Committee, said Obama “must seek congressional approval” before launching military action against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) unless there is a direct and imminent threat to the United States, such as a threat to the U.S. Embassy. There is no such imminent threat now, Kaine said.
