    Michael Brown's Parents Settle Wrongful Death Lawsuit With Ferguson, Mo.

    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber approved the settlement with Brown's parents, Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden — and ordered it sealed.

    The paper says a person familiar with the settlement negotiations said the agreement would be for less than $3 million because that is the maximum the city can pay under its insurance ...

    Missouri Republicans Lower St. Louis Minimum Wage From $10 To $7.70


    ... On Friday, Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R) said he would let the law go into effect, thereby barring cities and counties from setting a minimum wage higher than the state level.
    For low-wage earners in St. Louis itself, the new law will have a startling consequence: It will actually push the minimum wage back down, from the city-approved $10 per hour to the state-approved $7.70, the downgrade is slated to take effect on Aug. 28 ...

    Lessons from Ferguson should not be lost to revisionist history

    ... So when you hear our young people asserting that Black Lives Matter, they are not saying that to diminish the worth of others, they are simply calling out a hard, hateful truth that we can no longer deny: In the United States, in 2017, some lives are still worth more than others. They are justifiably outraged by that, and so am I ...

    BY MELINA DELKIC ON 9/6/17 AT 6:12 PM


    ... Almost exactly three years after the trial of Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown tore St. Louis apart, a similar trial threatens to reopen old wounds.

    Six years ago, Jason Stockley, a 36-year-old, white policeman, shot and killed Anthony Lamar Smith, then 24, in a car chase following what Stockley said was a drug transaction; just before he shot Smith, Stockley said, “Going to kill this (expletive deleted), don’t you know it,” according to dashboard camera video cited in closing arguments at Stockley's trial ...

    In St. Louis, could the Jason Stockley verdict be the next Ferguson?

    A judge in St. Louis will soon announce a verdict in the trial of a white police officer who's accused of planting a gun on Anthony Lamar Smith, a black man he shot and killed.
