[ - ] The love for Success Academy is largely felt by middle and upper middle class parents who want a private school experience but don't have enough money to pay for it. They want their kids to go to a school which is selective, offers a good education, etc. The parents' desires to have the best for their kids are understandable. The problem is this is being done with public money and it doesn't serve the public at large. The success of the enterprise depends on weeding out "undesirable kids" - again, precisely what makes it appealing to well off parents - and that is unethical when they're using public money. For the record, I'm not the anti-SA poster. My kid is in Salk; I just happen to think about the issues with public education. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not OP: Walker gave the Soviets, one of the most oppressive regimes of the 20th Century, access to US military secrets in exchange for money, endangering the lives of countless sailors.

Much of Riley’s discussion has to do with what has happened to black culture. He describes the pernicious effect of even middle-class black youngsters eschewing proper diction and devotion to schoolwork. In one study of fairly affluent kids in an Ohio suburb, Riley reports that researcher John Ogbu, a Nigerian-born anthropologist and Berkeley professor before his death in 2003, found that “black kids readily admitted that they didn’t work as hard as whites, took easier classes, watched more TV and read fewer books.” [ Reply | More ]

This is what's known: Brown was unarmed, Wilson had no disciplinary record, Brown robbed the Ferguson Market of 48 dollars of swisher sweets 10 minutes before the shooting, Brown tested positive for THC, Wilson was punched in the face with the extent of injuries being debated, the initial shot or shots were fired when Wilson was in the squad car, Brown was shot 6 times all with entry wounds from the front, a second set of gunfire was exchanged outside of the car. The key question will probably be whether, during the second engagement, Wilson was justified in shooting. Dorrian Johnson has stated that Brown was trying to surrender when he was shot. the police version is that Brown initially ran, then stopped and "taunted" Wilson, then charged when he was shot. There were multiple witnesses to the final event, but the content of those witness statements is unknown. There is an audio tape showing two distinct strings of shots, separated by 3 seconds, which is consistent with there being two distinct engagements. There is another audio tape in which an un identified eyewitness narrates that brown "doubled back" on Wilson, which is mostly consistent with the police version. In the end, in my opinion, this case will come down to the extent of the police officer's injuries, and what the eyewitnesses to the final shooting say. [ Reply | More ]
