This week’s topics include:
- Unarmed 18 Year Old Michael Brown was killed by an unnamed Ferguson Missouri Police Officer. Monday was supposed to be Michael Brown’s first day at technical college. Instead, his parents were planning his funeral.
- Do you think that there is a deliberate effort by police to impugn the character of Michael Brown, who eyewitnesses report was killed with his hands raised in submission to police? Can and will justice be served in the midst of what many believe to be a campaign to assassinate the character of this unarmed 18 year old?
- How do you feel about local law enforcement departments being armed with full military gear? Do you think this Pentagon program will lead to further clashes between citizens and police?
Our Friend Baye Kambui and Blogger @ mentalunrest.com ….it starts with your head joins the conversation this week from New York to share his take on the Michael Brown killing and unrest in Ferguson Missouri.
