St. Louis police officers’ group demands Rams players be disciplined for ‘hands up, don’t shoot’– RawStory

The Political Agitator response: SMDH!

Reacting to five members of the St. Louis Rams coming onto the field for Sunday’s game displaying the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ gesture, a St. Louis police officers fraternal organization is demanding the team discipline the players, and that the team and league issue a formal apology, reports KSDK.

In a statement released Sunday evening, the St. Louis Police Officers Association condemned the display, calling it “tasteless, offensive and inflammatory.”

Prior to player introductions before Sunday’s game, five players — Stedman Bailey, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, Chris Givens, and Kenny Britt — came out onto the field first with their hands in the air prior to being joined by their teammates. (Source: Read more)

I Totally Agree With The Following!

I am so sick & tired of people of color having to always take second of everything! It’s always vice chair, assistant to something…never Chair or President of a corporation…always vice president..or as in the NC Democratic Party, vice chair. They have had two Caucasians at the top of the helm the past 2 years. Yet, if we mention having 2 blacks or even a black and Hispanic, no one wants to hear of it!!! It’s time we band together and flex our mental strength & demand not 2 take it any more or we hold our own votes hostage at the polls! I’ve had it!

Democrats Don’t Support “Our” Black President & The Democratic Agenda, Then You Don’t Give A Damn About Me!

President Obama ran on the Democratic Agenda and was elected and re-elected so I ain’t supporting “Ignant Damn White Folks nor Ignant Damn Safe Negroes who don’t support “Our” President.

Now Run & Tell That!

An Open Letter of Apology to the United States of America – HuffPost

Dear America,

Hi there! My name is Brian Joyce. I’m a member of the media. Specifically, I’m a talk radio host. And as a member of the media, I owe you an apology.

In case you didn’t notice — and let’s face it, the hope was that you wouldn’t — the long-awaited House Intelligence Report on Benghazi was released late Friday afternoon.

After two years of investigations, endless hours of hearings, and at least one concussion, the Republican-led Intelligence Committee has finally admitted what many of us knew all along: that the Obama administration did nothing wrong in Benghazi; that the White House, CIA and State Department did not deliberately mislead the American people on Benghazi; and that the Obama administration did everything it could to respond to Benghazi in a timely and appropriate manner.

Why Charles Barkley Supports The Ferguson Grand Jury Decision – Roland Martin Reports

The Political Agitator response: “Ignorance will never end. Even those with money can’t buy SENSE!!” Author: Curmilus Dancy II The Political Agitator 

Former NBA star Charles Barkley recently called Ferguson looters “scumbags,” praised police officers who work in black neighborhoods, and said he supports the decision made by the grand jury not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting.

“The true story came out from the grand jury testimony,” Barkley said, adding that he was made aware of “key forensic evidence, and several black witnesses that supported Officer Darren Wilson’s story…” He continued, “I can’t believe anything I hear on television anymore. And, that’s why I don’t like talking about race issues with the media anymore, because they (the media) love this stuff, and lead people to jump to conclusions. The media shouldn’t do that. They never do that when black people kill each other.” (Source: Read more)

John Barnes appointed Washington County sheriff – WITN

The Political Agitator response: Now this is quite interesting. But I think that was a good choice as it relates to the circumstances. I don’t know any of these folks but I believe it is keeping line with how the people voted.

The man who was going to be John Sawyer’s chief deputy was appointed Washington County sheriff this evening.

John Barnes was selected in a 3-2 vote by county commissioners.

Sawyer died one week ago at age 46. He was a week away from being sworn in as sheriff, which family members say was his lifelong dream.

Commissioners met in special session this afternoon after nine people signed up as being interested in the open position. (Source: Read more)
