President Obama on Monday will focus on the relationship between local police
departments and the communities they protect and serve in the wake of sometimes
violent protests in Ferguson, Mo.

Obama will meet with Cabinet members to discuss a review the president ordered in
August of federal funding and programs that provide equipment to state and local law
enforcement agencies, according to the White House.

Law enforcement officials were criticized for their militarized response to protests in
Ferguson after a police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, Michael
Brown. A grand jury last week refused to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in
the case.

After meeting with his Cabinet, Obama will gather young civil rights leaders to the Oval
Office, the White House said. Topics for that discussion will include the mistrust between
law enforcement and communities of color.

Hmmm...

Maybe he will offer them coffee like kennedy did when he invited
civil rights leaders to the oval office.

I like the brutha, but in truth I have to agree with yalls view that this is for show. These "leaders" will fall in line, all there has to be is the right number of zeros behind the dollar sign. The did it when it came to Sterling, and other things. This ground swell is due to the efforts of the people on the ground, and not with these folks that paly this political game themselves. IMO, it would be better to meet with the folks on the ground, and not with these suits that has their own agenda.

Peace!
