Ferguson officer Darren Wilson is reportedly negotiating his way to leave the force in order to protect his colleagues from further retribution, reports stated on Friday.
"It's fair to say that neither he nor his defense team expect an indictment," Jeff Roorda, business manager for the St. Louis Police Officers' Association, said after meeting with Wilson.
As the town of Ferguson waits for the grand jury's verdict, Michael Brown, the unarmed teen shot by Wilson in August, has been remembered in protests. His father recently released a video online, calling for calm no matter what the grand jury decides. more >>

Church leaders are upset after a recent article in The New York Times revealed that the Internal Revenue Service can use undercover agents disguised as members of the clergy as a means to gather privileged information.
Following the Times' report last weekend that over 40 federal agencies use undercover agents disguised as attorneys, doctors, news media and other positions to gain access to privileged information, church leaders are appalled to find out that IRS agents are also allowed to pose as clergy, even though the agency doesn't have a crime-fighting function that warrants such a use of undercover tactics.
In a Tuesday interview with The Christian Post, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, Rev. Patrick Mahoney, said he thinks it's an "absolute disgrace" that the IRS is allowed use undercover agents disguised as clergy. He added that he couldn't think of any justifiable reasons as to why the agency should be allowed to disguise agents as clergy. more >>

Catholic doctors in Kenya are claiming that a tetanus vaccine being administered by two United Nations humanitarian aid organizations on Kenyan women is acting as a cover-up for a mass sterilization effort, which could have already affected over a million women and could affect over a million more.
The Kenya Catholic Doctors Association released a statement recently indicating that the association had found traces of an antifertility agent in tetanus vaccinations that have been administered by the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations International Children Emergency Fund (UNICEF) on Kenyan females aged 14 to 49 since October 2013.
The Catholic doctors claim that the vaccination project, which is also sponsored by the Kenyan government, has already been administered to over one million women, and ultimately targets 1.3 million more women, in what the association claims is really a population control campaign. more >>
Actor Bill Cosby has come under fire with allegations of sexual assault and rape resurfacing and going viral; he gave an interview on Sunday night in which he refused to answer any and all questions about the situation.
The latest round of allegations came after comedian Hannibal Buress called Cosby a rapist during one of his routines last month. That led Barbara Bowman to publish an article in The Washington Post entitled "Bill Cosby Raped Me." Why did it take 30 years for people to believe my story?" Soon after, Facebook and Twitter memes were created, furthering the claims' intensity.
On Sunday, Cosby gave an interview to NPR's "Weekend Edition" but refused to answer any questions about sexual assault allegations. Host Scott Simon released a series of tweets to explain exactly what transpired between the two men as they spoke. more >>
