Michael Brown’s parents want more than an apology from Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson in the wake of their son’s death, saying in an interview with The Associated Press Saturday they would prefer Officer Darren Wilson arrested and charged with murder and the chief fired. The comments come seven weeks after Officer Wilson shot and killed their 18-year-old son.
“An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder,” the slain teen’s father Michael Brown Sr. said in the interview. (Source: Read more)
WASHINGTON (AP) — The widespread mistrust of law enforcement that was exposed by the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man in Missouri exists in too many other communities and is having a corrosive effect on the nation, particularly on its children, President Barack Obama says. He blames the feeling of wariness on persistent racial disparities in the administration of justice.
Obama said these misgivings only serve to harm communities that are most in need of effective law enforcement.
“It makes folks who are victimized by crime and need strong policing reluctant to go to the police because they may not trust them,” he said Saturday night in an address at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual awards dinner. (Source: Read more)

According to the St. Louis County Police spokesman, a Ferguson police officer was shot Saturday evening. The officer did survive and police are still looking for the suspect. It is not clear if the shooting was in any way related to the ongoing protests in Ferguson.
Protests have continued in the streets of the Missouri town since Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen, was gunned down by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Wilson has yet to be arrested or charged which has fueled the continuous demonstrations. (Source: Read more)

It certainly was encouraging to hear N.C. Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos tell a legislative committee last week that her agency is preparing information for Gov. Pat McCrory for possible options to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.
McCrory and Republican legislative leaders last year rejected the expansion of Medicaid to more people under the federal health care overhaul, saying the state’s current system must be reformed first.
North Carolina’s $13 billion Medicaid program has been plagued by financial shortfalls for years, but Wos told lawmakers that the program had a $64 million cash balance at the end of the last fiscal year – setting the stage for possible expansion to include as many as 575,000 low-income, uninsured adults who earn too little to be eligible for federal subsidies under the Affordable Care Act but too much to qualify for Medicaid as it currently is structured in the state.
