More protests expected after funeral of Brooklyn man shot by police

Deaths of Eric Garner & Michael Brown illustrate the rash realities of racism, inequality, and corruption in America. They are more than enough to demand acknowledgement that America is not the model other countries need to be following. Should America wish to promote justice, equality, and democracy internationally, it must do so by example — an example it will only set when it begins enforcing these ideals domestically. #Icantbreathe #MUIPR #MichaelBrown #Racism #EricGarner #DarrenWilson


With the weight of the world's conscience behind outrage over the death and non-conviction, now you begin to see why there is a problem. If there is no fear of public perception, if there is no fear of repercussion in the brightest of media spotlight--what chance do individuals on dark streets have of being safe? Of having justice?

That is what American grand juries do.
