It was another busy night at our studios at Brooklyn College as we waited for word about the Grand Jury decision on the shooting of Michael Brown from Ferguson. First, Phil Rosenberg spoke to Chuck Modiano, a journalist and sports activist, who was on the ground in Ferguson a few feet from the Police headquarters. According to Modiano, things are bad for the citizen journalists on the scene as tensions rise.Phil also spoke to Brent Potter, a psychologist with some interesting opinions on mental health and big pharma. Then Dan Kinch spoke to Danette Chavis, an activist whose son died in police custody a decade ago. Chavis has organized National Action Against Police Brutality, and has petitioned Attorney General Eric Holder to demand accountability. And we got a report from Zack Murphy, who spoke to Christopher Wilson of the Woodrow Wilson Center. The topic is NAFTA's impact on Mexico twenty years after passage. Give a listen.
