Forbes)Washington - President Barack Obama will discuss the situation in Ferguson, Missouri, Monday with his Cabinet, civil rights leaders, law enforcement officials and others.

The White House says Obama’s Cabinet meeting will focus on his administration’s review of federal programs that provide military-style equipment to law enforcement agencies.

The White House says the president will also meet with young civil rights leaders to discuss the challenges posed by “mistrust between law enforcement and communities of color.” He’ll then meet with government and law enforcement officials, as well as other community leaders, to discuss how to strengthen neighborhoods.


Protests have continued in Ferguson, but have been more muted than the violence sparked last week by a grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer in the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

this is exactly what he wanted.
telling these thugs that they are expected to riot. ??!!
bringing in outside agitators ??!!
allowing them to "vent" just like they did with Crown Hts in Dinkins days.
This is the same incitement we saw with Occupy Wall Street.
these are hired agitators working hard to bring down the moral of this country and to set us back 50 years.
The Black people that worked hard to raise decent families and send their kids to school to become upstanding citizens - have decent families are most certainly not enjoying this and I feel really sorry for them.
This is really very similar to the "palestinians" their leaders live like kings and their pathetic puppets are busy hating and killing.........
The "kings" get fatter and richer and the fools stay miserable and poor.
