Ferguson Police Shootings: Was “Confession” Beaten Out Of Jeffrey Williams?

AFRICANGLOBE - A lawyer for Jeffrey Williams, the 20-year-old man who was arrested and charged with shooting and wounding two police officers last Thursday outside the Ferguson police department now says he doubts his client was the gunman who fired at the officers. "One thing that is clear is that he has a large amount of bruising on his body that I noticed that I'm very concerned about. It appears that whatever statements he made, he was without the advice of counsel, and when I look at the bruising, it's hard for me assess if these were voluntary statements that he made."

Blaming Protesters For Ferguson Police Shootings Is A Deliberate Tactic

AFRICANGLOBE - Now that the DOJ has brought Ferguson’s police tactics to light, it ought to be clear to the world why protesters are demanding justice. Everything, from racist emails being exchanged between city officials, traffic stops that target Black Americans 86 percent of the time and the fees that earned from it that generates much of Ferguson’s revenue is a direct attack against its Black citizenry. And it is not just Ferguson. Many in the Black community feel that policing in America is done to the detriment of Black Americans’ safety.
