•Ferguson gets a new Police Chief, and we take a look at a Washington Post report from Radley Balko, author of The Rise Of The Warrior Cop, which will help us understand just what kind of changes he will have to make for Ferguson to break away from the criminal racial profiling/policing for profit extortion that is going on throughout the surrounding cities there in Missouri.
