August 31, 2014 - BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (AP) - Some 200 people held signs and chanted Saturday outside a Wal-Mart where a young man with an air rifle was fatally shot by police.The rally was the latest effort by people wanting to shed more light on the Aug. 5 shooting of John Crawford III inside the store in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek. Police responded after a caller said a man was waving a gun; they say Crawford refused orders to put down an air rifle.An attorney representing Crawford’s family says Wal-Mart surveillance video of the shooting shows it was unjustified. Crawford is black, while the two officers involved are white.Signs and chants at the rally urged, “Release the tape.” Organizers said the Rev. Al Sharpton plans to come to the area in a few weeks to speak about the shooting.A special grand jury will meet Sept. 22 to consider charges in the case. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said releasing the surveillance video could raise issues of a tainted jury pool if the case results in a trial.”I think that it is playing with dynamite, frankly, to release that tape at this point,” DeWine told the Dayton Daily News. “And I think the dynamite simply is that it blows up and you can’t get a fair trial. That’s what we worry about.”Crawford’s parents want a federal investigation and have met with U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart. Family attorney Michael Wright said Stewart assured them Thursday that the Justice Department is monitoring and assisting Ohio’s investigation and will independently determine the merits of any potential federal prosecution. #johncrawford #justiceforjohncrawford #mikebrown #ferguson #gaza
August 30, 2014 - FERGUSON, MO - Part 3

Photo by Robert Cohen.Despite pouring rain and blistering heat on Saturday a massive, well-organized and peaceful rally and march was held in Ferguson. The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported “The march was billed as a protest ‘against police killings, brutality, profiling and legal cover-ups.’” There is a specific call for action on Labor Day. The New York Times reports:Organizers at the rally called on demonstrators to drive on Interstate 70 and other area highways at 4:30 p.m. Monday, turn their hazard lights on and stop their vehicles for four and a half minutes to symbolize the four and a half hours that Mr. Brown’s body lay in the street.“We’re going to tie it down, lock it down,” Anthony Shahid, one of the lead organizers of the rally, told supporters from the stage at a park. The following week, if the coalition’s demands were not met, including that Officer Wilson be fired and arrested on charges of murder, another four-minute traffic shutdown would occur on two days instead of just one, he said.“I want the highways shut down,” he said of the Monday protest. “I know it’s a holiday, but it won’t be no good holiday.” #mikebrown #ferguson #justiceformikebrown #gaza
