On the major social and political issues of our time, Walter Williams is one of America’s most important and provocative thinkers. He is black, yet he opposes affirmative action. He believes that the Civil Rights Act was a major error, that the minimum wage actually creates unemployment and that occupational and business licensure and industry regulation work against minorities and others in American business. Perhaps most importantly he has come to believe that it has been the welfare state that has done to black Americans what slavery could never do: destroy the black family. Walter Williams expresses all of these provocative ideas and more in this new public television documentary produced by Free To Choose Network.
The program features material drawn from extensive contemporary interviews with Dr. Williams as well as appearances by authors and scholars: Shelby Steele, Thomas Sowell, Douglas Ginsberg and others. A rich archive of photographs and motion pictures supports this uniquely American story.
The program traces Walter Williams rise from a child of the Philadelphia housing projects to become one of America’s most important authors and commentators and features the events of the 1960’s when Walter Williams realized “black people cannot make great progress until they understand the economic system.” It was then that he concluded that what America needed was to heed the words and the ideas of the Constitution.

Walter Scott Shooting FULL STORY | White Police Officer Shoots Unarmed Black Man to Death | VIDEO
It looks like the officer goes back to pick up something and then drops it by the body he’s just shot’. CBS Legal Analyst: ‘Highly Unlikely’ Charleston Cop Would Be in Jail Without Video
Here’s A News Report We’d Be Reading If Walter Scott’s Killing Wasn’t On Video
(Huffington Post) A North Charleston police officer was forced to use his service weapon Saturday during a scuffle with a suspect who tried to overpower him and seize the officer’s Taser, authorities said.
The man, who has a history of violence and a long arrest record, died on the scene as a result of the encounter, despite officers performing CPR and delivering first aid, according to police reports
The shooting was the 11th this year by a South Carolina police officer. The State Law Enforcement Division has begun an investigation into the incident.
Police identified the officer involved as Patrolman 1st Class Michael Thomas Slager and the suspect as Walter Lamar Scott, 50, of Meadowlawn Drive in West Ashley. Slager, 33, served honorably in the military before joining the North Charleston Police Department more than five years ago. He has never been disciplined during his time on the force, his attorney said.
The incident occurred behind a pawn shop on Craig Street and Remount Road. Slager initially pulled Scott over for a broken taillight. During the stop, police and witnesses say Scott fled the vehicle on foot. When Slager caught up with him a short distance from the street, Scott reportedly attempted to overpower Slager. Police say that during the struggle, the man gained control of the Taser and attempted to use it against the officer.
It was during that scuffle that the officer fired his service weapon, fatally wounding Scott.
“Shots fired, and the subject is down. He took my Taser,” Slager radioed immediately following the shooting.
Slager “felt threatened and reached for his department-issued firearm and fired his weapon,” his attorney said in a statement on Sunday. “I believe once the community hears all the facts of this shooting, they’ll have a better understanding of the circumstances surrounding this investigation.”
Saturday’s encounter bears similarities to the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, which kicked off a national conversation about the use of force by police. Authorities there ultimately determined that Brown had attempted to overpower Officer Darren Wilson and run before turning back and charging the officer, who was forced to deploy his service weapon in the encounter.
Slager was placed on administrative duty, pending the outcome of the state investigation.

The USDA did a series of Spanish radio ads aimed at getting immigrants on Food Stamps.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been running radio ads for the past four months encouraging those eligible to enroll. The campaign is targeted at the elderly, working poor, the unemployed and Hispanics.
The department is spending between .5 million and million on paid spots, and free public service announcements are also airing. The campaign can be heard in California, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, and the New York metro area.
“Research has shown that many people — particularly underserved seniors, working poor, and legal immigrants — do not understand the requirements of the program,” said Kevin Concannon, a USDA under secretary.
The radio ads, which run through June 30, come amid a bitter partisan fight over the safety net program. Republican lawmakers want to reduce funding for the benefit or turn it into a block grant program, which would also minimize the cost. Democrats, however, are not willing to make major cuts.

Obama eulogizes pastor in Charleston shooting. Obama sings Amazing Grace at funeral of Charleston shooting victim Clementa Pinckney.
Washington (CNN) President Barack Obama on Friday eulogized the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, one of the victims in last week’s church massacre, calling him a “man of God who lived by faith.”
“We are here today to remember a man of God who lived by faith,” Obama said. “A man who believed in things not seen. A man who believed there were better days ahead, off in the distance. A man of service who persevered knowing full well he would not receive all those things he was promised, because he believed his efforts would provide a better life for those who followed.”
The President’s remarks both memorialized the victims and touched upon the current controversy surrounding the Confederate flag and what he said was a need for more gun control in the wake of the tragedy.
“By taking down that flag we express God’s grace,” he said.
Obama finished his remarks by breaking into song, leading the assembled in a rendition of “Amazing Grace.”
Friday’s funeral service for Pinckney isn’t the first time Obama delivered a high-profile eulogy, and with a year and a half remaining in office, it may not be the last.
But when the President stood in historic downtown Charleston to remember the slain pastor and eight others shot down in their church last week, his speech moved beyond just grief for the victims — Obama stepped directly into a national conversation about race in which he plays a central role.
President Barack Obama ended his at times solemn, at times rousing eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who was killed along with eight other African-American churchgoers last week, by leading the congregation in “Amazing Grace.”
After repeating those words, “Amazing Grace,” several times, the president paused before launching into the song as the mourners joined him. Video Rating: / 5
Every Parent Should Watch This Video; Especially Fathers!
Episode 7 of the Custodial Support Forum provides insight into what many would say is a flaw in the Child Support Enforcement system within America, when a Noncustodial Parent loses their job and is unable to pay their child support.
If You Need Help; Call: (855) 851-HELP or (855) 851-4357
In Part 1 of Episode 7, a Noncustodial Parent discloses how the court denied the opportunity to reduce his child support obligation after losing his job. The continued obligation led to an accumulation of arrears, which triggered an arrest warrant, and child support judgment on his credit report. Never having a prior criminal record, he never received notice of the arrest warrant, and he was arrested. After spending several months in the Bergen County Jail, he contacted the Custodial Support Foundation, and was provided with an attorney, who was able to convince the Judge to release him and reduce his child support obligation.
In Part 2 of Episode 7, Attorney Alexandra Stremler discusses how important it is for Noncustodial Parents to retain the services of an attorney to assist in their child support related problems. She raises the issues that many judges feel if a Noncustodial Parent can afford an expensive attorney, they can afford to pay their child support arrears. She explains how the Custodial Support Foundation Amnesty Program’s cost effective legal fees, enables an attorney to represent a Noncustodial Parent can’t afford to pay their arrears, when applying for a downward child support obligation.
The Custodial Support Foundation provides an Amnesty Program for noncustodial parents that owe child support arrears, have arrest warrant for unpaid arrears, revoked driver’s licenses, revoked passports and income tax levies.
The program provides legal and collection services to enable noncustodial parents to establish settlement agreements to pay their arrears, suspend their arrest warrants, restore their licenses, restore their passports and stop income tax levies for the nonpayment of child support.
1. Noncustodial parents agree to an easy payment plan to repay all arrears, enter into a repayment agreement and completes a certification that is provided to the court to:
● Vacate Child Support Warrants
● Reinstate Licenses
● Reinstate Passports
● Stop Income Tax Withholdings
2. Agreements are established between the Office of Child Support Enforcement and a certification is prepared for the court to accept the motion of repayment.
3. Noncustodial parents provide all of the necessary information to enable the Office of Child Support Enforcement to garnish all future child support payment to prevent the accumulation of additional arrears.
4. Noncustodial parents make court appearances with a pre-accepted Motion for the repayment with the first payment to have the court grant the order to vacate child support arrest warrants, reinstate licenses, reinstate passports and stop income tax withholdings.
5. Noncustodial parents can live a fulfilled life that enables the privileges of the American Dream, without the fear and the threat of being arrested.
Noncustodial parents who need help with obtaining a downward modification of the child support order or structuring programs to repay their arrears should call the Custodial Support Foundation’s Call Center at (855) 851-HELP or (855) 851-4357.

The United Nations announced in 2013 that Peru has overtaken Colombia as the world’s top producer of coca, the raw plant material used to manufacture cocaine. For the past two decades, Colombia has been virtually synonymous with cocaine. Now that Peru has become the global epicenter of cocaine production, the Andean nation runs the risk of becoming the world’s next great narco state.
The Peruvian government is trying to crack down on the problem by ramping up eradication of coca plants, and devoting military and police resources to interdiction efforts. Despite the response — and a hefty amount of foreign aid devoted to combatting cocaine production — Peruvian coke is being consumed in the nightclubs of Lima and in cities around the world like never before.
VICE News travels to Peru to learn more about the government’s battle plan against cocaine, and to see how nearly every aspect of Peruvian society is caught up in the fight. We witness how the fine, white powder has forced an entire nation to the brink in the global war on drugs.

In our video we are glad to help you understand Comparative Fault Systems better!
The concept of negligence was developed under English Law and emerged as an independent cause of action in the 18th Century. Negligence is defined as “Conduct that falls below the standards of behavior established by law for the protection of others against unreasonable risk of harm”.
Comparative Fault Systems fall into three basic types:
3. Modified Negligence
Let us introduce some Rules and explain how they work:
a) Pure Contributory Negligence Rule – a damaged party CANNOT recover ANY damages if they are EVEN 1% AT FAULT. (Watch our video for examples)
NOTE: Only five (5) states (Alabama, District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia) recognize the Pure Contributory Negligence Rule.
b) Pure Comparative Fault Rule — a damaged party is permitted to recover even if they are 99% at fault. Under this rule, the amount of the recovery would be reduced by the damaged party’s degree of fault. (Watch our video for examples)
NOTE: Thirteen (13) states (Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Washington) recognize the Pure Comparative Fault Rule.
c) Modified Comparative Fault Rule — there are two different applications of this rule:
50% Bar Rule – a damaged party cannot recover if they are 50% or more at fault. Under this application, the recovery amount is reduced by the damaged party’s degree of fault. (Watch our video for examples)
NOTE: Eleven (11) states (Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia) follow the 50% Bar Rule.
51% Bar Rule – a damaged party cannot recover if they are 51% or more at fault but can recover if they are 50% or less at fault. Under this application, the recovery amount is reduced by the damaged party’s degree of fault. (Watch our video for examples)
NOTE: Twenty-One (21) states (Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming) follow the 51% Bar Rule.
