    That happened in St. Louis, but, apparently, not only does the police department apparently have more credibility, there, they released info immediately.

    The only problem with that shooting is...

    The reaction wasn't so severe with Occupy Wall Street. We didn't see special tanks fresh in from Iraq, police snipers, or full combat gear.

    I have been watching CNN for a couple of hours, and this is disgusting! People are exercising their constitutional right to assemble, and the po-lice are threatening arrest and gassing the people...

    But, as we both know, it's not really news until the story hits constant rotation on the cable news networks.

    What pisses me off even more is that this probably wouldn't have gotten as much attention if the press hadn't also been attacked by tha police.

    Cops killing people, particularly Black people, in...

    I don't see it. Right now, Ferguson, MO is the modern-day Birmingham, AL. Instead of the dogs and fire hoses, they use tear gas and military combat gear. And, like L.A., they call in the National...

    Oh yeah! That's very true! And, did you know that Bruce Swedien was also Quincy's engineer in those days too? "Q" was also the A&R director, and later a VP of Mercury Records in the 60s.

    It's very interesting how this story is being totally obscured, almost ignored by the media in favor of the events in Ferguson, MO.

    There was also another shooting at the hands of the po-lice in...

    You know, I never got past the first side of this album. I'm not sure why.

    But, my favorite "Q" album is "Mellow Madness", which is essentially the Brothers Johnson's actual first album, IMO.

    Apparently, the scenario pieced together from the press conference a few minutes ago, is that he first slit his left wrist. Then, when he began to lose consciousness, he lost his balance, thereby...

    Thanks!

    I don't know how far we have come in understanding how the word "negro" suddenly became offensive, and I probably muddied that up a bit, but it's been a goof thread, so far. thanks!

    Many people believe that if you remove the labels, you remove their cultural identity, and that is an even bigger insult.

    Like Jerry, I have a diverse makeup, but I also agree 100% with what...

    The point of the new rules isn't for respecting the people we talk about, it's about US, the forum members. It's best not to call people out because it will no doubt cause dissention again. This...
