politicizing the issue. i think that there are political issues which need to be addressed between ukraine and the russian federation what i think is important in terms of the humanitarian aspects of this is that those aspects are not politicized the one of the important things about humanitarian work is that it's independent it's new true it's about bringing aid to people desperate need i regret that this whole issue of the convoy became highly politicized and i hope that that does not happen again. german chancellor angela merkel expressed her support for kiev again on a visit to the ukrainian capital there she held talks with the country's president artie's polish leader has more on what was said. many good words have been said and often these are the woods of people here inhofe ruined dinette square i am want to

4:12 pm
obtained by the a.c.l.u. is only two pages long and does not include a description of the shooting the shooting scenes or quotes from eyewitnesses names of officers involved or any other piece of information normally found on such documents a spokesperson for the county police says the incident report includes the information they are required to share by law bret michael brown's funeral is scheduled to take place on monday but over the weekend many events vigils and demonstrations are planned to take place with tempers still high it's not clear how quiet or violent things may get. artsy ferguson thousands of people have come out to protest against police brutality in new york the demonstrators demand justice for. when officers wrestled him to the ground and held him in a stranglehold the protesters also expressed their solidarity with activists in ferguson where heavily armed police units are still stationed protesters there are

being met by officers in combat kit on armored vehicles tear gas has become a weapon of choice and responding to public anger the security forces also didn't hesitate to use rubber bullets and even wooden pallets causing serious injuries onto war activists in iraq fit for michael prysner believes that police exercise a shoot to kill policy because they know they can get away with it. the reason that they can do this is because they know there's absolutely zero accountability police have a free pass to do whatever they want and you know that they're going to get away with it and know that they're never going to be held accountable and the facts and racism and white supremacy of course plays so much into that because that's why these white officers can kill black people on a massive massive scale and are never punished for and as soon as the incident happens the entire system rallies around the defense of the police officer and demonizes the victim that's what we saw with the michael brown days and the reason
4:14 pm
that there is such militarization of the police and such heavy handed tactics that we've seen used in ferguson the whole reason the national guard has drawn out is because those protests were an expression of real deep issues in american society it seems very scary to people to see all of the equipment that the police had but the fact that they need that equipment shows that they're scared. and there's another reason why the public is i rage with police conduct an officer in ferguson has been suspended after insulting protesters on facebook saying that quote he should have been put on like a rabid dog another policeman was also relieved of his duties after a video emerged in which he makes racist remarks more on those stories head to our website r t dot com. more news coming your way very short things hitting home more and more french citizens are joining the ranks of the jihadists in iraq.

4:20 pm
the french government has to tread carefully over the situation in iraq to avoid angering radicalized muslims at home i think that they could become very angry thing that the government is very careful if they do something besides sending food or water and so. they would look to the old problem here the french government's already force islam make militants in mali and now their affairs that the rise of the islam make state in iraq could be inspiring and new generation of would be jihadists in this the european country but the largest muslim population probably boyko r t paris. it's not just france that seeing a stream of people volunteer to fight alongside the jihadists according to recent reports some five hundred u.k. citizens have joined the ranks of the islamic state group journalist jonathan
