Does anyone really know what happened in Ferguson? I certainly don’t. The media reporting devoid of any investigative journalism has done virtually nothing to clarify things. Regardless of what the alleged unarmed teenager Michael Brown did or didn’t do, he is entitled to a fair trial, not an execution. The arresting officer Darren Wilson is also entitled to his day in court instead of “mob rule” even after emptying his entire magazine into this kid. Although I have no clue as to who is innocent or guilty, I can only conclude the following. First, disproportionate force by the police may have been used to stop Michael Brown. Second, law enforcement is excessively militarized and we live in a police state. The militarization of law enforcement greatly fueled the flames of community outrage. The bureaucrats know this and are using this outrage to justify further militarization. Third, there appears to be little leadership or accountability at any level of government. Watching local politicians and law enforcement pass the buck to county officials, the county to the state, and finally the state to the federal government was absolutely pathetic. What good are these ineffective officials if they can’t do their job and follow the Constitution as we pay them to do? Clearly, you are correct, Gov, Nixon; the whole world is watching you and your fellow public servants. And thus far, all of you are failing miserably.

When I first moved to the Valley of the Sun in 2000, the PBS TV channel, KAET, was a “powerhouse.” The best TV programming on local television. “MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour” gave the best (unbiased) analysis of the day’s news events. “Masterpiece Theatre” and “Masterpiece Mystery” were “must watch” week in and week out. Wonderful foreign films were shown that could be seen nowhere else on the Valley of the Sun’s TV channels. We viewers didn’t know it be we were seeing the “beginning of the end” for KAET.
