WASHINGTON — A multi-million dollar lawsuit was filed in federal court in Missouri on Thursday, seeking compensation for “excessive force” by the police in Ferguson, Missouri, in the days after the shooting of Michael Brown.

According to the suit, the excessive force included false arrest, assault and battery; led to intentional infliction of emotional distress; was the result of negligent supervision and discipline; and resulted in a violation of the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights.

The lawsuit, filed by three out-of-state lawyers — including Malik Shabazz from Black Lawyers for Justice, who participated in the protests in Missouri — seeks multi-million dollar judgments against the City of Ferguson and St. Louis County, as well as one specific ands several unknown officers on behalf of Tracey White, Dewayne A. Matthews Jr., Kerry White, Damon Coleman, and Theophilus Green.

In addition to the city and county, the chief of both city and county police are named as defendants, as is Justin Cosma, a police officer with the Ferguson Police Department.

PERFECT

I hope this lawsuit and all the others after make the white supremacist Ferguson government’s town coffers as bankrupt as their morality already is.

Erykah Badu - Next Lifetime (Baduizm, 1997)

"Next Lifetime" is a song by Erykah Badu. It is the second single from her début album Baduizm (1997). It was written by Badu and A. Scott. It is a low-tempo ballad with lyrics that describe being in a relationship but longing for another man. At the start of the song, Badu is heard talking to a man about how they can’t be together even though they both have feelings for one another.
