When St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announced last night that no charges will be brought against Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, McCulloch lashed out at the media for the unrest in Ferguson, blaming its “24-hour-news cycle.”
He’s wrong. The real culprit is the 24-hour racism that still pervades our system of criminal justice. Wilson shot Brown six times. Witness reports differed as to whether and when Brown had his hands raised and whether he was moving toward Wilson when the final shots were fired. Why shouldn’t these questions and inconsistencies be aired at a trial? Robert McCulloch is yet another white prosecutor explaining why another mostly white grand jury has decided that another white police officer shouldn’t stand trial for killing another black boy.
The Justice Department's investigation of the Ferguson police department should be thorough and swift. Meanwhile, our hearts go out to the Brown family and to the citizens of Ferguson, Mo.

is a very cool utility for enhancing the built-in ability of Mac OS X to drag and drop files.
It sits in the OS X Menu Bar, and when you click it, a drop-down window unfurls, with shortcuts to apps and folders, as well as built-in actions you can click to share a file on Twitter, Facebook, and practically anywhere on your computer including Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. It also has the ability to add custom actions through scripting.
I find it very handy and recommend it for Mac users. It’s $4.99 in the Mac App Store.
