Hello fellow zobopians. [No exclamation point.] I’m nowadays under the impression that the Un-United States of America are becoming a modern day killing fields. Black people are getting shot and killed on any given day. Police unions and lawyers are making it illegal to video record police doing their job we, taxpayers, are paying for.
Video recordings don’t seem to be a deterrent! Police and “stand your ground” freaks can kill with impunity! The whole world is watching? What difference does it make? Who watches the watchers? Apparently we can’t!

Hello fellow zobopians! To the point…
How many Ferguson, Missouri police officers are Black? Don’t the Ferguson citizens want to become police officers? That’s one way to end racist police terror.
How many members of the Ferguson, Missouri town/city council are Black? Don’t registered voters of Ferguson want to go into politics?
Will there ever be a Black person as mayor of Ferguson? I’m not playing the Race Card; just saying. Citizens will have to overcome their inertia and self-defeat to change the future. If things don’t change soon, Ferguson will continue to be pacified by a predominate White Citizens Council.
This is what one gets when you read Frantz Fanons‘ ‘Wretched of the Earth’ book. Until neXt time…

Good day fellow zobopians. Yes, that’s what I’m calling you all now, ‘zobopians’. It has a nice ring to it. Today’s thought is; Who watches the watchers?
Cameras aren’t the only surveillance devices spreading in our cities. Around the country, (and world), police departments are using devices with sound pickup. The microphone devices can pinpoint bursts of gunfire and also the sound of human voices.
If you want to live in a transparent society, we must answer the question:
Will average citizens share, along with the powers that be, the right to access these universal monitors? Will common folk have, and exercise, a sovereign power to “watch the watchers”?
