Martin Luther King: The Most Dangerous Man in America

Martin Luther King, Jr. died in one of the most shocking assassinations the world has known, but little is remembered about the life he led in his final year. New York Times bestselling author and award-winning broadcaster Tavis Smiley recounts the final 365 days of King’s life, revealing the minister’s trials and tribulations — denunciations by the press, rejection from the president, dismissal by the country’s black middle class and militants, assaults on his character, ideology, and political tactics, to name a few — all of which he had to rise above in order to lead and address the racism, poverty, and militarism that threatened to destroy our democracy.

Smiley’s DEATH OF A KING paints a portrait of a leader and visionary in a narrative different from all that have come before. Here is an exceptional glimpse into King’s life — one that adds both nuance and gravitas to his legacy as an American hero.

Comic Book Shows, Over-saturation?

Starting this fall, there will be five comic book TV shows on broadcast television, with two mid-season replacements waiting just off panel. Plus, comic book TV juggernautThe Walking Dead marches on at AMC, and between AMC and Syfy alone, there are at least 7 more series in various stages of development, with others coming to other networks, or even (like Powers) to other delivery platforms altogether (that’s debuting on the Sony PlayStation Network), or the Marvel Studios – Netflix team-up coming later next year.

To help make sense of it all, here’s where we stand in the world of comic book TV series (focusing solely on live-action here) with things like premiere dates, airing times, principal cast, and official descriptions when applicable. This information is ever-changing, and we’ll endeavor to keep this very page as up-to-date as humanly possible as news arrives.

Pittsburgh Police Chief Challenge on Racism

Like I’ve stated before, love it when Americans stick up for each other.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh’s new police chief is being criticized by a police union president for being photographed on New Year’s Eve holding a sign that says, “I resolve to challenge racism @ work,” and bearing a Twitter hash tag that says, “# end white silence.”

Fraternal Order of Police president Howard McQuillan says the sign paints city police, especially white officers, as racists, and the chief’s photo violates a policy governing police participation in social media.

Chief Cameron McLay, who was hired in September, defended his holding the sign that someone brought to the city’s annual First Night celebration. In an email to the union, McLay, who is white, apologized if he offended officers but said it is a “statistical fact” that policing efforts have “a disparate impact on communities of color.”

Again mixing it up; Liberal video and Conservative link.

Bad News For Ferguson’s Prosecutor Bob McCulloch

As I have always stated, the truth always comes out.

St. Louis Public Radio

A grand juror is suing St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch in an effort to speak out on what happened in the Darren Wilson case. Under typical circumstances, grand jurors are prohibited by law from discussing cases they were involved in.

The grand juror, referred to only as “Grand Juror Doe” in the lawsuit, takes issue with how McCulloch characterized the case. McCulloch released evidence presented to the grand jury and publicly discussed the case after the grand jury decided not to indict Wilson, then a Ferguson police officer, in the shooting death of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African-American.

Let’s look at the facts as well, Michael Brown was shot 150ft away from the cop vehicle yet police lied and stated 30ft for 108 days straight. Darren Wilson stated he was punched in the face 3 times by a young man who weighed 250lbs and was 6’4; where was the physical bruises?

A law that was ruled unconstitutional in 1985 was given to the grand jury; why?

Early on in the proceedings, Assistant District Attorney Alizadeh handed out copies of a law that was ruled unconstitutional in 1985. In essence it set the bar for use of excessive force lower than is permissible. Simply put, ADA Alizadeh told the jury that it was permissible to shoot a fleeing suspect.
