Tom Fuentes explained the process of the FBI investigation into the case of what happened the day Michael Brown died and how the FBI should be looking at the case.
I think it is terrible that Marc Hill violated the curfew last night in Ferguson. Shame on him for not being more professional. The protesters are not accomplishing anything by looting and burning down buildings. This type of behavior makes the whole black community look bad. The police are going to have to get the protesters under control. It is so obvious that the Governor and Captain Ron Johnson are caving in to the community -so they will not upset them more – and then they will riot more. I certainly agree that the shooting incident should be investigated – and police brutality is on the rise. I am keeping all of Ferguson in our prayers – but enough is enough. The police must crack down on the violence and looting. I want to ask the black community why Michael Brown is more important than the hundreds of innocent black kids getting slaughtered in Chicago. And where are all the black leaders? Like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They need to speak up and condemn this violence.

Mark Hill has encouraged this type of behavior. Watch his special on BET and you will see black youths interviewed and saying they do that to get the media's attention and will continue to do this.
Hey! I know this really is kind of off subject but I was wondering which blog platform are you making use of for this website? I’m acquiring sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m seeking at options for another platform. I would be great in the event you could point me inside the direction of a very good platform.
I was watching your tv coverage of the verdict in the Michael Brelo case. In light of all the recent events it was a fascinating story and I found the judge's decision to be thoughtful and well presented. Following the verdict, CNN began airing comments by Brelo's attorney. The attorney was in the middle of making an interesting point about recent trends in how we as a country approach race relations and equality. Namely, that interest groups like the NAACP and Black Lives Matter no longer make decisions on events based on the content of people's character but solely based on the color of our skin. This is a tragic development and one that should be explored in depth in our national discussion. Unfortunately, CNN chose to cut him off mid sentence with no explanation. CNN then aired several minutes of hysterical shouting and mindless chanting. The coverage went from being thoughtful and edifying to mindless and stupefying. I do not generally take a cynical view of the news media, but in this matter there is no other explanation. You not only failed miserably as journalists, but you showed your true colors and peddlers of pablum. Your actions don't just make for bad television and pitiful journalism; they are dangerous for the health of our nation. Shame on you.
