Michael Brown: The asinine things people send me concerning Ferguson

What seems to me to be an off-the-mark photo comment concerning the Ferguson shooting of Michael Brown?
Propaganda about Michael Brown shooting

Someone sent me this controversial photo with the comment, "This about says it all." 

I get lots of email forwards similar to this. What the photo "says" depends on what you read into it.  Here is my take. 


1. The guy (Michael Brown) in Ferguson was not shot for robbing a store. 
2. Dead guys cannot testify.
3. There was a ton of stuff that was wrong with the trial, whether the decision not to indict was right or whether it was wrong.
4. There is still a ton of stuff that needs to be fixed in Ferguson, and it is the kind of stuff that can blow the fuse on American safety.
5. We have an inherited apartheid type system in many parts of the United States. 
6. All of the above spells trouble for the United States and for the citizens of Ferguson, regardless of their color.
7. The photo "says" more about the author's racial bias than it does about justice in Ferguson.

Furthermore, I would be happy to elaborate on all of the above if you need evidence for what seems to me to be self evident.

Please like. Please "Share." Please plus+. Please comment. Please do all or any one  of the above.

Thanks.

VENEZUELA'S DEMISE: INEVITABLE COLLAPSE OF SOCIALISM, CAPITALIST COUP, OR SOMETHING ELSE?

DRAFT, WRITING IN PROGRESS, OPINION
Was the demise of Venezuela's government the inevitable result of socialism, the collapse of oil prices, a coup, or something else?

We are being told all the time that the nation's collapse is because socialism is bad  (very bad), and that capitalism is good (very good) and will fix it.. I don't believe it.

Local Group organizing: meeting Friday to discuss Crisis Center for the mentally ill and others.

A local group of concerned citizens is organizing to push for a regional, Coordinated Crisis Response Center in Benton and Franklin Counties.  The workshop will be held Friday morning (June 8, 2018) at Claude Oliver’s office in the Tri-Cities Realty Group, 1919 N. 20th Avenue, Pasco, Washington.
