“Know that God is good all the time,” said a woman speaking through a bullhorn on the sidewalk directly across from a shrine that marked the spot that 18-year-old Michael Brown lost his life at the Canfield Green Apartments.
Representing Bethesda Temple’s Missionary and Outreach Ministry, She offered mini-sermons in between their singing.
“We will glorify his holy name,” a small representation of the group sang fervently as the rain poured down – almost in a soulful chant-like cadence.
“It may not look like it right now, but all things work for the good of those who love the Lord,” the woman said fervently.
For many who were in the Canfield Green Apartments that morning, it appeared to most certainly not look like it.
They peeked from their front doors and stood on steps, watching as protesters and activists slowly started to convene for two different demonstrations that were to honor the life of the 18-year old boy who was shot down by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. One was a moment of prayer for Michael Brown and the people of Ferguson lead by the Rev. Jesse Jackson. The other was a moment of solidarity (and march) for all of the young African American men who were casualties of police violence.
It was within the hour of the one-week anniversary of Brown’s death.
A week probably felt like an eternity to the folks who have watched their corner of Ferguson become a nonstop hotbed of protests and activity.
It was first the most disheartening of crime scenes as Brown’s body lay uncovered for hours.
Then Gatherers from across the county, city and nation convened. Along with them on this day were FBI agents, who swarmed the complex knocking on doors in search of witnesses and information related to
Brown’s death.
In this national media sensation of a story, residents’ privacy has become the unspoken of collateral damage.
Yet as they sat and watched in a stance to suggest they were guarding what was left of their personal space, residents still managed to be gracefully open to their complex playing host to protests and demonstrations.
One woman clapped along as the Bethesda group sang. Another said “how you doing” as a non-resident woman and her son walked from the parking lot getting positioned to hear The Rev. Jesse Jackson lead protesters in prayer.
A couple of them even walked down to hear Jackson uplift the hundreds of protesters who had come to hear him deliver an encouraging word in the fight for justice on Brown and his family’s behalf.
“Here we stand 50 years after the march on Selma with some unlearned lessons,” Jackson told the crowd. “Too much fear, too much hatred, too much violence and too much bloodshed. Michael lives as long as we remember him. He was robbed of the right to walk the streets where he lived. Too long we have learned to survive apart. Now we have a different lesson – let’s learn to live together.”
In the solitude of prayer, hands gripped tighter as people from various walks of life stood as one as Jackson’s words echoed among them.
“We choose life over death,” Jackson said. “We choose futures over funerals. In the end if we do not faint we will not fail.
We pray for the family of Michael Brown and we must end the violence. There is power in non-violence – whether it’s Selma, Alabama, or India, or South Africa. You must choose prayers and love over rockets and missiles. We’ve survived apart for so long – there is power in living together.”

Louisiana Looks To Rebuild After Record Floods – 844-292-1318 Louisiana legal aid

Some 102,000 Louisiana residents have registered for federal emergency assistance over the state’s record floods, called the worst natural disaster in the United States since Superstorm Sandy in 2012. Homeowners already are approved for million in federal aid, Richard Carbo, the governor’s communications chief, said on Twitter on Saturday. Yet more than 3,500 people were still sleeping in shelters on Friday, he said, about a week after parts of the state were deluged with more than 2-1/2 feet of rainfall. The floods killed at least 13 people and damaged some 60,000 homes, according to state figures. U.S. President Barack Obama plans to visit Baton Rouge on Tuesday to see the damage first-hand.

Sperm donor fail: Kansas wants child support from man after lesbians – TomoNews – 844-292-1318 Kansas legal aid

TOPEKA, KANSAS —Should a sperm donor be forced to pay “child support”? That’s the pointy end of the law facing a Kansas man who in 2009, helped a lesbian couple who wanted to be parents.

William Marotta responded to the couple’s Craigslist ad, charged nothing and even delivered the specimen to their home. All three parties signed a paper agreeing to their terms and specifying that Marotta had given up all parental rights.

The state of Kansas, however, has spent years hounding Marotta for child support, going so far as ordering a paternity test. Why are they doing this? Sperm donation is legal in Kansas, but the couple inseminated at home — which is not — so the state says Marotta’s the real baby daddy, and he’s gotta pay up.

The couple, Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner, broke up after eight years together but agreed to continue co-parenting the little girl as well as other children they are reportedly responsible for.

The sperm donor’s legal saga only began after the little girl’s mom got sick and applied for benefits. The state required the biological father’s name, and then began pursuing him.

None of the individuals involved in the case are asking anyone for anything. The former couple is not seeking financial aid, the sperm donor is not seeking parental rights.

The state of Kansas seems to be wasting money and resources because a couple “self inseminated at home”. William Marotta says he didn’t know they were going to “DIY” his donation, but in any case, why should he be held responsible?
Marotta says he’s fighting this out of principle, and will take his appeals as far as they can go. A GoFundMe page has been set up to pay Marotta’s mounting legal bills.

Boy, 13, has leg amputated after fight with teacher at school in Columbus, Georgia – TomoNews – 844-292-1318 Georgia legal aid

Boy, 13, has leg amputated after fight with teacher at school in Columbus, Georgia - TomoNews

COLUMBUS, GEORGIA — A 13-year-old boy is facing life with only one leg following an altercation with a teacher at school.

The boy, identified as Montravious Thomas, was set to go under the knife on Tuesday after a month of treatment failed to save his right leg.

Thomas was enrolled in an alternative school program for kids with behavioral issues at the Edgewood Student Services Center in Columbus, Georgia, when the incident that led to the amputation occurred on September 12.

The boy was reportedly the only student in the class when he decided he wanted to call his mom to pick him up. However, behavioral specialist Bryant Mosley refused to let him go. The teacher then allegedly body-slammed the boy to the floor multiple times.

Lawyers for Thomas said the boy suffered a broken leg, permanent nerve damage, and a damaged knee cap, the Ledger-Enquirer reported.

The teacher then carried the boy to the school bus and sent him home without providing medical aid or telling his family.

Adding insult to injury, Thomas’s mother Lawanda lost her temp job because she was spending time at her son’s side in the hospital.

Lawyers for the Thomas family plan to file a lawsuit for an amount that’s yet to be determined.

Moseley has not been charged with any crime related to the incident. The school has agreed to release more than 50 documents and any available video footage to the boy’s legal team.

This Week:Flag case dismissed, Budget cuts, and After school money toss up – 844-292-1318 Mississippi legal aid

This week in Mississippi, United State District Court judge Carlton Reeves dismissed a lawsuit filed by attorney Carlos Moore against Governor Phil Bryant.

Moore alleged that the Mississippi flag violates his 13th and 14th amendment rights.

Reeves ruled that Moore didn’t show the emblem caused any legal injury, but in his opinion, Reeves did site Mississippi’s Declaration of Session to show that the state joined the Confederacy to protect slavery.

Reeves also said, “while the battle flag never flew as the official pennant for the Confederacy, it nevertheless is the most recognized symbol of the Confederacy.”

Governor Phil Bryant cut the budget for all but four state agencies to cover a .8 million accounting error.

Agencies that won’t see their budgets trimmed are Mississippi Adequate Education Program, Institutes of Higher Learning Financial Aid, the military department, and Veterans Affairs Board.

Already a month into the school year, many schools and districts in the state don’t know if they’ll get federal money for after school programs.

Last month, state Superintendent of Education Carey Wright said there would be about million to work with after after school grants after what Wright’s department called an accounting error was discovered.

Wright told Mississippi Today that the department is still looking at July and August reimbursement requests from schools and districts that will affect what the final amount left over for this school year will be.

She expects to have a plan laid out by the end of next week.

Hillary Clinton has launched a scathing attack on Nigel Farage, linking him to a “rising tide of hardline, right-wing nationalism” and accusing him of being a Vladimir Putin-style extremist. Ms Clinton’s attack on the former leader of the UK Independence Party (Ukip), comes after he shared a platform with Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for President of the US, in Jacksonville, Mississippi on Thursday. Mr Farage, who was introduced as the man who orchestrated Brexit by Mr Trump, had said he would not vote for the Democratic presidential hopeful even if he was paid to do so. But responding to his comments at rally in Nevada, Ms Clinton accused the former Ukip chief of having “stoked anti-immigrant sentiments” during the European Union referendum campaign. Mr Farage was widely condemned at the time for appearing in front of a “Breaking Point” poster showing a vast queue of refugees stretching into the distance. “Just yesterday one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, a man named Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum to have Britain leave the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi,” added Ms Clinton. “Farage has called for a bar on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and health services, has said women are and I quote ‘worth less’ than men and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race.
