    Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson fired back at Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren over a tweet memorializing the 2009 death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown’s death on August 9, 2009, at the hands of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, sparked nationwide protests as the public seized on later-debunked claims that Brown had thrown up his hands in surrender prior to Wilson shooting him.

    The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the argument put forth by the National Police Association in the amicus brief it filed on behalf of the City of Ferguson, Missouri; former Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, and former Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, supporting their motion to dismiss in the case of Johnson v. City of Ferguson, et al. The issue was whether the plaintiff, Dorian Johnson was seized at the time that Officer Wilson had only ordered him to get off the street, and whether the qualified immunity rule applied to Officer Wilson. The brief argued Plaintiff Johnson...

    Edward Crawford, an activist known for throwing a tear gas canister back at police officers in a viral photo during the 2014 unrest in Ferguson, Missouri was found dead on Thursday, May 4, from what police officers are describing as a self-inflicted gun wound. Crawford had participated in the protests that followed the death of Michael Brown at the hand of Officer Darren Wilson. According to the St. Louis Police Department, the 27-year-old shot himself in the head after talking with two women about "personal matters." Crawford's father disputes the claims, telling the St. Louis Post Dispatch that his son...

    FERGUSON • Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says he probably wouldn’t have used deadly force against Michael Brown, the teenager whose fatal shooting by police Officer Darren Wilson sparked a national debate on race and the role of police. Carson gave an interview to the Post-Dispatch on Friday afternoon after visiting Ferguson. When asked if he would have shot Brown if he were in Wilson’s shoes, Carson said: “It’s hard to say. I probably, knowing who he was, I probably just would have arrested him.” Carson said he would have waited for backup before having the altercation. A Justice Department...

    There are some things you just can’t do in politics, not at the presidential level, anyway. This is a game like any other, with rules honed over decades by the pros in blue blazers clutching focus-group results: Be likable. Don’t make enemies. Respect the party elders. Avoid funny hats. And never wear white bucks or French cuffs to the Iowa State Fair, a flyover fantasy­land of cholesterol and common decency where the life-size butter cow grazes behind glass with the life-size butter Uncle Pennybags from Monopoly. That’s why Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker wore jeans to pose atop the hay bales...

    Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson has likely never heard of Edward L. Johnson, a New York City Police Sergeant who was killed by an alcoholic psycho on a cold January day more than 54 years ago. But those who passed through the NYCPD Academy during the 1960s remember the story of how Sergeant Johnson died because it was part of the Firearms Training curriculum. As the story goes, Sgt Johnson and his driver were called to a Bowery soup kitchen to back up a team of officers who were attempting to arrest a drunken, psychotic client who was using a...

    As protesters mourned the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death in Missouri over the weekend, a local police union honored the officer who killed him. Sunday was declared “Darren Wilson Day” by the Columbia Police Officers Association to public outrage and criticism by the city’s mayor and police department. In a since-deleted post on the union’s Facebook page, the white police officer, who was not charged in the unarmed black teen’s death, was commemorated as “an innocent, but persecuted, officer,” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The post reportedly went on to express support for Wilson because he was “thoroughly investigated”...

    “You are forever in our hearts”? Pop singer Beyoncé is taking some flak for a Facebook entry she made in remembrance of the shooting death of Michael Brown. She posted it Sunday, on the one-year anniversary of his death. He was shot and killed in self-defense by former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson. Both a St. Louis County grand jury and a Defense Department investigation cleared Wilson of any charges. Nonetheless, Beyoncé’s post, in the form of a meme, states: “Today we will honor you and continue to fight for society to respect the humanity of all people. You are...

    American Thinker ^ | August 9, 2015 | Mike Sylwester
    One year ago today, on August 9, 2014, police officer Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. A grand jury investigated the incident for three months and decided not to indict Wilson. About 5,000 pages of grand-jury transcripts and evidence were released to the public. The US Department of Justice conducted a parallel investigation and issued a report, titled Department of Justice Report Regarding the Criminal Investigation Into the Shooting Death of Michael Brown by Ferguson, Missouri Police Officer Darren Wilson (hereafter called the Justice Report) on March 4, 2015. The two most important passages were: … federal prosecutors...

    Former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who ignited a national firestorm when he shot and killed African-American man Michael Brown, opened up recently in an interview with The New Yorker. Wilson revealed that since the shooting, he has struggled to find work and has been denied employment in several police departments in the St. Louis area. After working for a shoe store for two weeks, he quit when reporters began calling. His wife, who is also a police officer, also quit her job for her own safety. Wilson also revealed the he actually sought out the Ferguson police department because...

    Why do black lives only seem to matter when white people take them? Why does the president of the United States think it’s proper to take a horrible racial tragedy in Charleston South Carolina as an excuse to bash America as the violence capital of the “advanced” world, and a prop for Democrats’ lust for gun control legislation in a state that already has it? Last year 82 people were shot over the Fourth of July weekend in Chicago. 16 of them died. The victims and the shooters were black.

    I realize we’ve been hitting the South Carolina shooting and the disgusting, racist criminal who allegedly perpetrated the murders rather often since yesterday morning. Unfortunately, nothing as serious and tragic as this can unfold in America today without immediately becoming mired in multiple levels of political muck, generally before the first facts are even verified. In this case, the process continued well into the evening and will surely roll forward in the weeks to come. One aspect of the church shooting, however, seemed to offer at least a slim ray of hope in an otherwise dismal day. A consortium of...

    Guy Benson: In “End of Discussion” we have a really fun, very short portion of a chapter that deals with this whole nomenclature on college campuses of “trigger warnings” and “privilege” — there’s a whole list of them. “Microaggressions” is a big one. And towards the end of this chapter on academia we examine the very interesting case of Elizabeth Warren, who is a white woman. That is – the science is in, and she is a white woman. Yet for years, she identified, self-identified wrongly based on family folklore that she was a Native American. And she benefited tremendously...

    Barbara Tasch June 10, 2015 New York police commissioner William Bratton said he'd like to hire more non-white officers but most of them have criminal records and therefore, he can't, The Guardian reported. “We have a significant population gap among African American males because so many of them have spent time in jail and, as such, we can’t hire them," Bratton said in an interview with the publication. For this high number, Bratton blamed the "unfortunate consequences" of stop-and-frisk policing carried out on young non-white men over the last few years in New York. A felony conviction, domestic violence charges,...

    It's been 250 days since our fallen brethren Michael Brown Jr. was fatally shot in Canfield Apartments in Ferguson, Missouri, by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. Wilson got rich, famous and a vacation after killing Mike Brown, a phenomenon that is occurring all too often across the United States. In fact, an MXGM (Malcolm X Grassroots Movement) study has reported that every 28 hours a black person is killed by police. Accountability is the key. Accountability is the answer. As you may remember, Wilson was not indicted and the community of the St. Louis and St. Louis County region still...
