Justice Department said ready to clear Ferguson officer: N.Y. Times


The newspaper quoted law enforcement officials as saying that federal prosecutors had begun work on a legal memo recommending no civil rights charges against the officer, Darren Wilson, after an FBI investigation found no evidence to support charges against him.

The Justice Department declined comment.

The agency is still conducting a probe into the Ferguson police force. A St. Louis County grand jury decided last year not to prosecute Wilson.

Few candidates file for Ferguson election despite protests


FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Ferguson's first municipal election since a fatal police shooting sparked months of protests and exposed the city's deep racial divide drew relatively little interest from prospective candidates as Tuesday's filing deadline passed.

So, we also risk losing the benefits of what the Civil Rights and Black Power eras won us, because so few who truly benefited aka the black middle class, were or are prepared to defend even themselves, by actually running for political office, etc.?

Hence, all of this rhetoric about black media celebs and/or sports stars is beside the point, etc.

Missouri Sheriff Thinks Al Sharpton Should ‘Go Back Into the Gutter He Came From’ (Video)


Missouri Sheriff David Clarke had strong words for MSNBC’s Al Sharpton Thursday morning on “Fox & Friends.”

“I don’t expect anything intelligent to come out of the mouth of Al Sharpton,” Clarke said in response to news that the Department of Justice won’t press civil rights charges against former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Steve Doocy had just played a clip of Sharpton’s Dec. 3 comments following the Eric Garner grand jury decision.
