Shoot & Shock: Fort Wayne Police Toy Story

The best way to see SHOOT AND SHOCK is to click the link to my friend Dean J. Robinson's page. SCROLL TO THE MIDDLE where you will see "A Yahree Cavin Story." Dean J. is a Fort Wayne journalist educated at Indiana University, once city newspaper writer now focused on independent looks into serious acts at City Hall and happenings in the Fort Wayne Police Department. The Yahree Cavin story is about a young black man who was electrocuted and shot in his home by the Fort Wayne Police while trying to remove, at Police orders, a toy gun from his pocket.

A Few Suggestions/Comments

Possible to increase the 'delay time' on the call-in portion of the live broadcast from 30 seconds (or whatever it is now) to maybe a minute or longer? Haven't been able to catch much of my conversations with Thom or Bernie - by the time I make it back to watch 'live TV', my 15 seconds of fame have already passed!

Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?

Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
