Cops gone wild, first responders left in dust
Abby Martin remarks on the latest cases of police brutality in the US, e.g. Charlotte police killing 24yo Jonathan Ferrell and NYPD slaying an unarmed man near Times Square. John Feal, founder and president of the Feal Good Foundation, talks about the 9/11 first responders who continue to seek compensation for cancers they are contracting at a 15 percent higher rate than normal. Then the signing of the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) as the catalyst for America’s global War on Terror. Finally, an interview with former US Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, discussing Iraq before the first Gulf War, his opinions on Syria, why he legally represented Saddam Hussein, and how US sanctions have a far greater negative effect on citizens than the regimes they target.
