The Young Turks - 08.18.14: #JusticeForMikeBrown, Elderly Woman Arrested, Ebola & 3 Day Work Week

Cenk hosting. Latest on Ferguson, MO. The National Guard has been called in to calm the ongoing clashes. The anger was potentially ramped back up when a curfew was implemented. An independent autopsy was done after being commissioned by the Brown family, and showed that there were 6 bullet wounds in Brown’s body, with 2 in the head. The St. Louis medical examiner’s autopsy said that he was shot 6-8 times and had marijuana in his system. Some describe the weed aspect as a “bombshell.” It also said that Brown died about 35 feet from the police car, where the confrontation occurred. A neighbor that saw the shooting recorded some tape of the immediate aftermath.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Evansville, IN police raided the home of an elderly woman over some anti-police posts to an online forum. They tracked the IP address to her home and violently broke in. It turned out that the online threats never came from the home because someone used their internet since it wasn’t password protected. 17 suspected ebola patients in a quarantine center in Liberia have been taken out, presumably by family members that think the outbreak of the disease is a hoax. The FDA is failing to properly enforce oversight of the food industry, including chemical preservatives, flavorings, and thickening agents. Due to their failures, people are suffering from the side effects of consuming these chemicals. This system relies on the food industry to police themselves. The world’s 2nd wealthiest man, Carlos Slim has some plans for better financial success. One of his ideas is to have a 3 day work week, just longer hours, so that people will have more time for themselves and not become work robots.
