      Jessica Ann Mitchell Great post Marc! Clearly the Ferguson police department refuses to respect the local community and Black life. I'm not sure what Obama could do further in this situation. It's like a catch 22.

      Marc Polite Thank you Jessica. If President Obama goes personally to Ferguson to address the residents, I think that would be a good start.

      Marc Polite I definitely agree that Darren Wilson needs to be arrested. That should be demand number one. With the Secret Service right there, its not a risk for the president at all, in my opinion. Nothing is going to happen to him.
