On the August 27, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
How many more young black males must be shot by the police before something is done to fix our system of law enforcement in this country. In Ohio, John Crawford III was shot and killed in a walmart because he was brandishing a toy gun. There was apparently no warning given and no request for the gun to be put down before the police opened fire on Mr. Crawford.
Here in Louisiana Victor White III died in the back seat of a police car. He died from a gunshot wound. According to police reports he found a gun somewhere, while restrained, and shot him self in the back while the deputies left him alone. Likely story.
And of course we have the Michael Brown case that continues to have its interesting twists and turns. No grand jury charges yet for the officer who killed the unarmed teen. But there are some interesting aspects of Missouri law that need to be looked at more carefully in this case to show excatly what is wrong with this system that we have.
If there is time I will discuss issues like Common Core and the anti-GHB nail polish that was created by 4 male students. Otherwise I will discuss those issues next week.
Those issues, tweet of the week, words of redneck wisdom, headlines and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
