    Last week when I went to peruse the shelves at Barnes & Noble and used my educator card for a purchase, I was asked to show a photo ID. The next day, when I went for a planned medical procedure, I was required to display a photo ID. And finally, when I cashed a check at the local A&P, the cashier requested to see some identification. Even at a local Goodwill store, I had to show a photo ID in order to buy an item. In addition, I needed to show my driver's license to get a new library card....

    Dial MSNBC for Murder . . . The Lean Forward network is the place to go if that's the way you want to hear the death of Michael Brown described. On August 12th, NB'S Ken Shepherd noted that Chris Hayes didn't utter a peep of protest when a Missouri state senator called Brown's death an "execution-style" killing. Three days later on MSNBC, Luke Russert called Brown's death "murder" before catching himself. It's happened again. On today's Up With Steve Kornacki, guest L. Joy Williams pointedly called the Brown death "murder." Did Kornacki challenge his guest's assertion in any way? Of...

    In UNRWA’s books, a refugee can be just about anyone who wants to be one In the West, it’s known as welfare fraud. In the Palestinian Territories, it’s called refugee relief. In both places, the fraud can become a way of life, seen as an entitlement that children and then grandchildren adopt. Only in the Palestinian Territories, though, does the welfare agency see its goal as putting more people on welfare and keeping them there, the better to keep “the Palestinian refugee crisis” alive. ...

    When does a moment become a movement? Events such as the killing of unarmed, 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., can provide the moral shock that political movements need to build their ranks and bring attention to a community’s afflictions. They can be like the murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955 or the beating death of Matthew Shepard in 1998 — transformative episodes that remake perceptions and force a society to abandon abhorrent practices. Or they can be like the 1991 beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles police officers: a horrific moment that failed to create a sustained...

    Only the courts can judge Michael Brown’s killer – but this is the system that let George Zimmerman walk free.Just outside a mall in Ferguson, Missouri, shortly after 10 o’clock on Wednesday, a black man in his 30s was stopped and frisked by around eight white policemen. As he gingerly emptied his pockets, careful not to move too quickly, he yelled at them. It was a soliloquy of pure rage; a fluent, apparently unstoppable oration against not just the men who had apprehended him but the system they represented. “Yes I’m angry,” he shouted. “Four hundred years we been here....

Freeman appears not to have seen the fusillade that killed Brown, and no uncontested account of it has emerged. But we can see from the tweets Freeman posted in the...

    Over the past two weeks, Americans have been transfixed and horrified by the surreal images of police donning camouflage and gas masks and pointing sniper rifles at unarmed demonstrators in Ferguson, Mo. Why have police departments become so enamored with tools more associated with war than with walking the beat? One answer is receiving precious little attention: America’s gun culture. America is a nation awash in firearms. It’s simply impossible to talk incisively about what’s happening in Ferguson without talking about guns and the ease with which ordinary citizens and criminals can get access to them. Police today are much...

    NATO Secretary General condemns entry of Russian convoy into Ukraine I condemn the entry of a Russian so-called humanitarian convoy into Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian authorities and without any involvement of the International Committee of the Red Cross. This is a blatant breach of Russia’s international commitments, including those made recently in Berlin and Geneva, and a further violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty by Russia. It can only deepen the crisis in the region, which Russia itself has created and has continued to fuel. The disregard of international humanitarian principles raises further questions about whether the true...

    The Defense Department on Friday pushed back against Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) claim that fighters from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) might have entered the United States across its southern border. Perry, who is weighing another run for the president in 2016, made the assertion Thursday during a speech at the conservative Heritage Foundation. "There's the obvious great concern that, because of the condition of the border from the standpoint of it not being secure, and us not knowing who is penetrating across, that individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be [crossing]," he said....

    -Kiev Says Crossing of Russian Trucks Without Red Cross Violates Agreement Ukraine charged Russia with violating its borders by driving dozens of trucks into the rebel-held east of the country on Friday, a sharp escalation in tensions after an extended standoff over a large convoy believed to be carrying humanitarian aid that Moscow dispatched last week. Russia's foreign ministry said it sent in the trucks unilaterally because Kiev was deliberately halting the delivery. But Ukrainian officials said trucks had entered Ukraine without being accompanied by the International Committee of the Red Cross, violating a previous agreement. They charged that Russian...

    The one-sided media and the mob aim to beat doubters into silence, but striking back is not the answer. I stayed silent, like a lot of white folks, while events unfolded in Ferguson, Mo. I was flabbergasted at the anger of the protesters and their certainty, which seemed to doubt any narrative but the one presented by the family attorney, who replayed his Trayvon Martin appearance: Brown was “executed in broad daylight.” A young man — not a boy — lay dead in the streets of a quiet suburb that, whatever its flaws, does not fit our usual image of...

    The violence that turns a small-town protest into a fiery national spectacle like the one that has played out this month in Missouri is often unwittingly provoked by police, according to researchers at UC Berkeley. The research team, which studied clashes between police and activists during the Occupy movement three years ago, found that protests tend to turn violent when officers use aggressive tactics, such as approaching demonstrators in riot gear or lining up in military-like formations.

    A pro-Russia separatist guards a checkpoint in the eastern Ukrainian village of Rozsypne on Monday. Reuters DONETSK, Ukraine— Oleg Mamiyev, a Russian citizen with a beard and a lazy eye, descended a crooked flight of stairs into a basement on a rebel base here and unlocked a chain-link trapdoor to show off a prisoner. Sitting on a cot that barely fit into his dark nook, the prisoner, Maxim Kucheryavy, was obviously hungry and in pain. A Ukrainian volunteer who wanted to fight pro-Russian insurgents, Mr. Kucheryavy said he had been shot in both legs at point-blank range while unarmed and...
