Midwest Corn Lawsuit, Race Relations in Ames

Sean Fagan, a lawyer from Indiana working with the law firm Morrow, Archer and Associates, explains the events leading to the Midwest Corn Lawsuit against Syngenta. Corn farmers, transporters, grain elevator operators and others plan to sue the agribusiness for actions that led to China's boycott of U.S. corn in 2013 and 2014 and a resultant drop in corn prices.
 

Then, NAACP president, Edna Clinton, together with Patrol Commander Geoff Huff of the Ames Police and Devita Harden, a concerned citizen, discuss their reactions to the horrific killings in Baton Rouge, Minneapolis, and Dallas late last week. The NAACP has been working in a pro-active way with Ames police; we discuss these efforts and issues such as Iowa's highest-in-the-nation incarceration rate for blacks and plans to equip local police with body cameras. Huff encourages anyone with complaints about an encounter with police to report the incident.
