#Ferguson Grand Jury will reconvene on Monday


The grand jury investigating the killing of Michael Brown by Ferguson, Mo., police Officer Darren Wilson is not meeting this weekend and will reconvene Monday, sources told ABC News.


Sources: Ferguson grand jury to reconvene Monday



Speculation that a decision on whether to indict Wilson in the shooting was coming soon has increased tensions in a town that already was on edge.


Raw: Ferguson Quiet Ahead of Grand Jury Decision



Federal, state and county officials have been ramping up their readiness in case there is a fresh wave of angry and, at times, violent protests over the jury’s decision. Protesters have been demanding that Wilson be charged with murder for the Aug. 9 shooting of Brown.

On The Brink Of The Ferguson Grand Jury Decision, Some Facts From Shaun King: The Police Lied.




Shaun King for shaunking & The Daily KOS


Video: Police lied. Mike Brown was killed 148 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV


From Shaun King & The Daily KOS


For 104 days, the police have lied and said Mike Brown was killed 35 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV. It was actually 148 feet.


This distance is essential to the defense and how Darren Wilson must demonstrate that he “reasonably feared for his safety.” At the point in which Mike Brown ran half a football field away, how reasonable is it for an armed officer to fear anyone?


On the afternoon of August 9, 2014, Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Mike Brown, an unarmed teenager, in Ferguson, Missouri. Below is the first video filmed from Canfield Drive, where the shooting occurred, showing the exact measurement between where Darren Wilson’s SUV was parked and Mike Brown died. After that, we methodically debunk the lie that Mike Brown was killed in close proximity to Darren Wilson’s SUV.


Our starting point, which is 17 feet behind the driver’s side window of Darren Wilson’s SUV, is this yellow fire hydrant next to the storm drain.


Our end point is 2943 Canfield. Notice the building number in the back of this photo below where Mike Brown’s father and family members are standing over the exact location where Mike Brown was killed.


Watch us measure the distance below.


Mike Brown was killed over 130 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV


Published on Nov 20, 2014

For months and months, police and the media have grossly misrepresented just how far Mike Brown fled from Darren Wilson as being just 35 feet. After months of research, the availability of previously unseen images, the use of every mapping tool available, and a brand new measurement, we have discovered that Mike Brown fled 148 feet from the window of Darren Wilson’s Chevy Tahoe. In this video, we measured from the yellow fire hydrant, which was actually 17 feet away from the driver’s side window, all the way to the exact location of where Mike Brown fell after being murdered by Darren Wilson. Our distance is 131 feet + 1 inch



So: 131 feet, 1 inch (distance between the fire hydrant and where Mike Brown died), + 17 feet (distance between the fire hydrant and the driver’s side door of Darren Wilson’s SUV) = 148 feet.


The St. Louis-area police have continued to advance this lie for over 104 days since Mike Brown was killed on Canfield Drive on the afternoon of August 9 in Ferguson, Missouri. Here we will methodically expose this lie and examine just why it’s so important.


On this past Monday, Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency in Missouri in anticipation of some level of unrest regarding a decision from the grand jury in the Darren Wilson case. Covering this decision, and the case in general, CNN authoritatively states that Mike Brown was found 35 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV. Watch just the first 20 seconds of this video to see how Erin Burnett frames the case.


CNN: Missouri Governor Declares State of Emergency


Published on Nov 18, 2014

11/17/2014: Erin Burnett invites Van Jones, Paul Callan and Dr. Cyril Wecht to discuss the grand jury decision on Darren Wilson’s indictment.



Where the Lie Began

On August 10, 2014, St. Louis County Police Chief John Belmar held his first press conference on the shooting of Mike Brown by Officer Darren Wilson of the nearby Ferguson Police Department. His force had been called in to take over the investigation for the much smaller local department. The shooting had occurred less than 24 hours earlier, and the tensions on the ground in Ferguson were already red hot and boiling over.


Six different witnesses on the scene claimed that Mike Brown was shot at repeatedly from behind before he turned around, faced Darren Wilson, verbally surrendered, and put his hands in the air. Wilson, having already shot at Mike Brown at least six times while he fled, then fired off a barrage of four quick shots at the surrendered Brown he was looking at face to face, killing him on the spot. With his lifeless body face down on the road, Mike Brown’s blood literally flowed down Canfield Drive for more than four hours. The shooting and the aftermath that evening, which included bringing police dogs to the scene, infuriated residents as never before, and the anger was spreading rapidly across St. Louis and into the nation.


When Chief Belmar sat down the next day to brief the press on his summary of the facts, he stated at 1:13 (and then even more emphatically at 6:01) in the video below, “The entire scene, from approximately the car door (of Officer Wilson) to the shooting, is, uh, about 35 feet.”


See his video below and pay attention to the statements at 1:13 & 6:01.


Ferguson Police Shooting Full Press Conference On Michael Brown



At that time, when the chief said the “entire scene” was just 35 feet in distance from the “car door to the shooting,” every observer accepted it as a negligible fact and thought little about it, instead zeroing in on why Darren Wilson stopped Mike Brown in the first place and why a police officer would shoot a young man who was surrendering with his hands up.


It turns, out, though, that the distance Mike Brown fled was not 35 feet, as was stated in the press conference and cited in hundreds of articles since. Nor was it 45 feet, or 75 feet, or even 95 feet, but approximately 148 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV. Below, you will find photos from the day of the murder, maps, infographics, and more to confirm for you that the distance was more 500 percent farther away than originally claimed by Chief Belmar and subsequently quoted as fact in almost every narrative of the case.


While the initial reporting of this distance from the chief could have been an error, albeit an egregious one, it seems clear now, after over 100 days of requests for the police to clarify this discrepancy have only produced silence, that it wasn’t an oversight, but a deliberate misrepresentation of the facts.


What reason would the chief have for so seriously understating the distance by more than 110 feet? Well, how far Mike Brown fled matters greatly, and the St. Louis County Police Department could have many reasons for purposely understating it. One doubts, though, that they expected to be caught telling this lie. When it was first told, while matters were tense in St. Louis and spreading on social media, nobody had any idea that this case would grip the nation and the world.


Without even using this space to dive into the actual shooting of Mike Brown, it appears that some base level misconduct can be suspected when the St. Louis County Police Department has repeatedly refused to address the discrepancy in distance.


When the police came out the morning after Mike Brown was killed and deliberately included the distance between the SUV and the shooting, it successfully created a very particular narrative. The arc of their initial story, magnified in importance by the absence of even one official report, is that Darren Wilson shot and killed a young man who, in a short distance from the SUV, posed him grave harm. How far Mike Brown actually fled, how far Darren Wilson chased him, and where each of them were in relation to each other and to the SUV, are facts of paramount importance. If Mike Brown fled over 148 feet away from Darren Wilson, it clearly suggests that Brown—unarmed, shot, missing a shoe, in lounge clothes—feared for his life and not the other way around.


Furthermore, police, in many cases, use the distance in which a suspect flees and the distance between them in an encounter as evidence to prove they were reasonably afraid for their safety—which is required by law.


What follows is evidence to the contrary. Mike Brown fled at least 108 feet away from Darren Wilson’s SUV. If the police will lie about this fact, what else have they openly lied about? Did they present this false distance to the grand jury? Why does the media continue to advance this lie? Here are the facts.


Here is a rarely seen panorama of Canfield Drive moments after Mike Brown was killed. Few images better display that the distance was not a very short 35 feet than this one.


This is Darren Wilson’s SUV. Where you see it here is exactly where he parked it to confront Mike Brown and Dorian Johnson for jaywalking. Out of sight in this image, to the left of the driver’s side door, is Mike Brown’s hat (shown in a later image below). Approximately 16 feet behind the SUV is Mike Brown’s black sandal, which came off while he was running. Please notice the fire hydrant to the right of the SUV.



On the center left is Darren Wilson’s SUV from the opposite angle. Notice the two orange cones next to the driver’s side door. That’s Mike Brown’s red St. Louis Cardinals hat next to it.



Using this image, let’s create starting line A. As effective landmarks, please notice the fire hydrant on the right and the sloping entrance into the apartments


From the back of Darren Wilson’s SUV, Brown fled over 100 feet down Canfield Drive. The exact location where Brown died is today marked by a memorial in the middle of the street.


This is ending line B. Mike Brown is the blurred figure on the ground. That is Darren Wilson, visibly uninjured in every image of him from that day, standing to the right. According to eyewitnesses Dorian Johnson, Tiffany Mitchell, and Piaget Crenshaw, Mike Brown turned around, faced Darren Wilson and his SUV, and put his hands in the air.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Monday declared a state of emergency ahead of an expected grand jury ruling on the police shooting of African-American teenager Michael Brown. The incident in August set off weeks of protests and confrontations between police and demonstrators, and authorities fear the coming announcement may set off yet more unrest. RT’s Manuel Rapalo is in Ferguson with more.

New Surveillance Videos Show Darren Wilson After Fatally Shooting Michael Brown.

New Videos Show Darren Wilson After Fatally Shooting Michael Brown

Published on Nov 15, 2014

(ABC) New surveillance videos show Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson leaving for the hospital hours after he fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown, sparking weeks of protest in the Missouri city.
The videos, which were obtained by the St. Louis-Post Dispatch, show Wilson, 28, leaving the police station with another officer and a police union lawyer two hours after the shooting, the newspaper reported.


Dispatch calls also obtained by the newspaper reveal how quickly the situation between Wilson and Brown escalated.
Wilson can be heard just before noon on August 9 asking other units if they need his help locating a robbery suspect.
“You guys need me?” he asks in the recordings.
Less than 10 minutes later, another officer asks for help controlling the scene where Brown was shot.
Get us several more units over here. There’s going to be a problem,” says the officer.


During the call a woman appears to be crying in the background.
Brown was unarmed when he was shot six times by Wilson. Weeks of protests and some incidents of looting followed after the shooting outraged the Ferguson community.


Wilson, who has been suspended with pay, claimed he was injured in a confrontation with Brown. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson previously said that the confrontation started because the teenager was walking in the middle of the street.
A state grand jury is investigating whether he should face criminal charges. A decision is expected this month.
The Department of Justice is also looking into the case.



Does anyone see any visible signs on Darren Wilson of a blown eye socket? Bruises? Contusions? ANYTHING from an attack by Michael Brown? Remember the bogus claims from George Zimmerman how Trayvon Martin went for his weapon and a “fight for his life” ensued?


Whom you gonna call to protect you from those paid to “serve & protect”…..you?

  • Welcoming the G20′s Commitment to Stop Ebola and Strengthen Global Health Security


    We have consistently said that Ebola is an urgent global challenge requiring an urgent and commensurate global response.  Earlier today, Leaders of the G20—a collection of the world’s largest economies—answered that call from their ongoing summit in Brisbane, Australia. They committed to continued and intensified action to end the Ebola epidemic in West Africa and pledged to assist others to achieve needed health security capacity to prevent, detect and rapidly respond to future outbreaks before they become epidemics.


    The communique commends the extraordinary international commitments and cooperation toward the Ebola response to-date, while urging countries around the globe—as well as international organizations and the private sector—to do their part. The statement also goes one step farther to achieve global implementation of the World Health Organization International Health Regulations, which over 40 countries and 17 G-20 members have now pledged to accelerate through the Global Health Security Agenda.


    Specifically, among other steps, G20 Leaders pledged to:


    • Expedite the provision of funds and other forms of assistance to the affected countries, including personnel, medical teams and personnel, medical and protective equipment, and medicines and treatments;
    • Share their experiences fighting the epidemic to ensure healthcare workers and other responders encounter the safest conditions possible;
    • Urge greater efforts on the part of researchers, regulators, and pharmaceutical companies to develop safe, effective, and affordable diagnostics, vaccines, and treatments;
    • Call upon international and regional institutions—as well as civil society and the private sector—to devise ways to mitigate the impacts of the epidemic and facilitate an economic recovery for the affected countries;
    • Encourage the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund to continue their strong support for the affected countries, including through concessional loans, debt relief, and grants;
    • Build capacity to prevent, detect, report early and rapidly respond to infectious diseases such as Ebola so that future outbreaks of infectious diseases can be stanched before they develop into epidemics; and,
    • Set a date by next May for those members that wish to accelerate action to announce a timeline for establishing the needed capacity across the Economic Community of West African States and other vulnerable regions to combat future infectious disease threats. We look forward to working with partners, including through the Global Health Security Agenda, to set this timeline and to achieve this important goal.


    All told, the international community has already committed more than $1.5 billion to fight the epidemic, while officials from countries large and small have worked on the ground hand-in-hand, together with authorities from the affected countries and humanitarian responders, to beat back this disease. But, today’s communique signals a commitment on the part of the world’s largest and most powerful countries to see this challenge through and to recognize infectious outbreaks for what they are: global threats. The United States will be there until the Ebola epidemic is contained and the affected countries are back on their feet. And today, many of our closest allies and partners pledged to be right there with us.

Keystone XL Pipeline: Why It Is NO Good For America



NO Keystone XL Pipeline And Here’s Why: Major Oil Spills In Alberta Canada.


House set to approve Keystone XL pipeline

Published on Nov 13, 2014

The House of Representatives on Friday is expected to pass a bill approving the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, while Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will bring the National Security Agency reforming “USA Freedom Act” before his chamber for a full vote. Both pieces of legislation face significant hurdles on their quests to become law, potentially setting the stage for more partisan battles. RT’s Ameera David takes a look.



The 1,700 mile long Keystone XL pipelineproposed by TransCanada would run fromAlberta down to Houston, Texas and move 435,000 barrels of heavy crude oil per day.



The proposed Keystone XL pipeline running from Alberta’s tar sands south to Nebraska and Texas continues to stay in the public eye. Mitt Romney gave it center stage in acampaign ad released today, and the House Republicans attempted to attach it to a drilling bill .


But this week it was reported that over the past few months, a million liters (quarter million gallons) of oil from several pipelines have spilled in Alberta. Canada’s The Star reported on Wednesday that cleanup crews are working to prevent contamination from the three major oil spills:


The latest spill occurred earlier this week in northeastern Alberta near the town of Elk Point, where Enbridge confirmed a spill of about 230,000 liters through its pumping station on the Athabasca pipeline.  The biggest incident was earlier this month near Red Deer and Sundre in central Alberta, where 475,000 liters of oil from Plains Midstream Canada leaked, some of it spilling into the Red Deer River.


This is not the first time the Canadian tar sands giant, Enbridge, has been involved with an oil spill. In July 2010 one of its pipelines ruptured in Marshall, Michigan and spilled an estimated 819,000 gallons.


Even proponents of the Keystone XL pipeline see these incidences as worrisome, and confidence in the tar sands extraction and transportation throughout Canada has clearly been shaken.  For example, Doug Bloom of the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association and president of Spectra Energysaid:


Any spill right now is going to be bad timing. There’s such a focus now with Gateway and with Keystone XL and other projects going through regulatory review. Any time there’s any kind of an incident no matter how large or how small, it’s going to be prominent


The 1,700 mile long Keystone XL pipeline proposed by TransCanada would run from Alberta down to Houston, Texas and move 435,000 barrels of heavy crude oil per day.  Environmentalists and residents near the proposed pipeline fear that that it could leak in critical areas such as Nebraska’s Ogallala Aquifer.


TransCanada’s own analysis shows that the Keystone XL pipeline would have 11 “significant spills”over its 50-year lifecycle, while an independent study estimated that there could be as many as 91 spills. The first leg of the Keystone  pipeline even suffered 12 spills in 2010 – a record for a pipeline’s first year in operation.


Although not always reported in the media, oil spills from pipelines, wells, and infrastructure happen so frequently that at this point they are just part of doing business for oil companies.  For example, a report from USA Today found an average of 22 large spills offshore every year between 2005 and 2009.


And yet, the spill has not deterred proponents of the pipeline.  In fact, Canadian Premier Alison Redford has called for an investigation into the spills, while still trying to get Keystone XL built over the Canadian-American border.


These spills could not come at a better time to remind people that pipelines leak. For “bitumen”, the unrefined petrochemical from the tar sands, to be fluid enough to flow through pipelines, lots of toxic solvents must be mixed in, and these will form a toxic cloud in a large spill.


With increasingly severe tornados, hurricanes, wildfires, and blizzards far beyond anything we’ve seen yet, and catastrophic increases in natural and man made disasters, now is the time to decrease pipeline additions to our natural landscapes.


We can not keep pumping CO2 and all the other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere past the point of no return.


Even if you do agree with this “jobs and industry” point of view, the picture on that front isn’t that rosy. All the employment numbers are at peak, for construction, not operation, and many of those are for distant contractors, not local jobs. Same for our tar sands.


This is disaster waiting to happen,Republicans are holding 2.9 million jobs hostage,just to get 6,000 temporary jobs as they do the bidding of big oil,this is a heavier oil it does not float,a true contaminate. Rich people need the money. They have life styles to maintain and can’t survive with out it. Poor people going without drinkable water suffering thirst is nothing compared to rich people going without money and suffering a lack of wine and caviar.


But Keystone XL is win win for wall street. Big profits from the crude and big profits from taxpayer funded bottled water, water filtration and water supply systems after a few good spills. The point is to poison the water!


Running the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline through the environmentally sensitive Sand Hills of Nebraska where the Ogalalla aquifer could be irreversibly poisoned was such an intelligent plan by the old, billionaire Kochroaches.


What happens if a pipeline spill contaminates an aquifer turning sweet water into grey water? I believe when that happens the government will treat the spill just like they did on the Deep Horizon oils spill, cater to big business, meanwhile the people involved will not have clean water to drink.


NO Keystone XL Pipeline. The 6K or so jobs dangled before ignorant Americans are temporary jobs with most going to Canadian drilling workers subbing as pipeline construction workers. The crude is not even meant for American consumption, it is being exported overseas. Get the facts about issues before taking sides.


NO to Keystone XL.
