Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson Not Indicted in Michael Brown’s Shooting Death, LAPD and LASD on Tactical Alert

As expected, St. Louis County DA Bob McCulloch announced that no probable cause exists to charge Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown last August.

Ferguson Grand Jury Decision in Michael Brown Murder Expected Tonight

Ferguson Grand Jury Decision in Michael Brown Murder Expected Tonight

It’s been 108 days of protest since the Aug. 9 shooting  of unarmed 18 year old African American Michael Brown who had his hands raised in the universal sign of surrender when white Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed him. Police in the majority-black city left Brown’s body lying in the street for four hours, adding to the angst and outrage among activists (see video below). At 6:00pm Pacific time, the 12-member St. Louis County grand jury’s decision whether to indict Wilson for murder or give him a “no bill” of indictment will be announced. It takes 9 members to vote for indictment. Many in Ferguson believe the grand jury will not hold Wilson accountable and the governor has already called out the National Guard and declared a state of emergency in expectation of protests.

Chick-fil-A Hollywood Holds an LGBT Fundraiser for Campus Pride Saturday Night

This Chick-fil-A Hollywood fundraiser for the national LGBT youth organization Campus Pride comes as something of a surprise, considering the ongoing distaste for Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy’s public religiously-based oppositionto marriage equality in 2012  and the company’s past history of contributing to vehemently anti-gay political organizations such as the Family Research Council. Cathy became a hero to anti-LGBT conservatives. LGBT advocates responded with kiss-ins and calls for a boycott,  which Campus Pride also promoted. That changed when Campus Pride founder and executive director Shane Windmeyer “came out” about secret meetings with Cathy and their developing friendship.

Why Obama’s Immigration Plan Should Piss You Off (Video)

Scores of undocumented immigrants and their families cheered outside the White House after President Obama issued his immigration executive order on Nov. 20.  While LGBT advocates hailed the move in the face of Congressional inaction on comprehensive immigration reform a major “first step,” others called it “deeply disappointing” for excluding many undocumented LGBT immigrants who don’t fit the narrow criteria.
