Can we please, please talk about or at least acknowledge Simone Battle? A 25 year old black female singer who just committed suicide a few days ago?

Laverne: Nicole, does your belief system now change, in which you now know you don’t need him to be there?
Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do.

The three officers are: Lt. Ray Albers, who threatened and pointed an assault rifle at protesters; Dan Page, an officer caught on camera pushing a CNN correspondent before a video surfaced of him ranting about the Supreme Court and Muslims; and Matthew Pappert, an officer fired after making what his chief called “very … inappropriate” Facebook comments about the protests in Ferguson.
In the video, Albers can be seen walking around with his assault rifle raised, then pointing it in the direction of protesters."I’m going to f—-ing kill you," he says. “Get back. Get back.” When the officer was asked for his name, he responded: "Go f—- yourself."
Page was caught on camera pushing CNN’s Don Lemon. He also refers on the video to Barack Obama as “that illegal alien who claims to be our President.”Pappert was fired after making what his chief called “very … inappropriate” Facebook comments, according to a city official. "These protesters should be put down like a rabid dog the first night."
