Looking Back at 2014 and Forward to 2015
We have a guest with us today, Ainsley Reynolds!
First up, is there reason to believe that this year will see more understanding between disparate groups as we move further away from the use of force events in 2014? We have already seen the story of an activist having the opportunity to experience some use of force scenarios.
Second, how influential is new media & social media as compared to mainstream media? Have we hit critical mass yet?. John argues that we have and that collectively bloggers and podcasters are influential. However, there are significant changes taking place. Ainsley refers to “low-information” folks as still being heavily influenced by cable news and print media.

While New Jersey citizens are punished for simple mistakes (see Brian Aitken, Shaneen Allen, and now, apparently, Steffon Josey-Davis). A gun trafficker who made deals to illegally sell guns and prescription drugs to undercover law enforcement, in violations of federal as well as state law, pleads guilty and is sentenced to probation. The lesson that is being sent by the State of New Jersey is that the prosecutor’s win ratio is more important than serving the interests of justice. To top it off, NorthJersey.com seems to think its significant that the gun trafficker didn’t register his guns before selling them illegally.
