What's the fallout from the Mohamed Osman Mohamud incident?

The Nov. 26 arrest of 19 year-old Mohamed Osman Mohamud for allegedly attempting to detonate a bomb during the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Pioneer Courthouse Square raises troubling legal, political, social and moral questions.

Did the FBI derail a dangerous plot or entrap a disaffected youth?

A celebration of civil rights: Susan Banyas and The Hillsboro Story

Two months after the historic Brown v. Board of Education decision legally ending school segregation, the county engineer of Hillsboro, Ohio - a white man determined to force integration in the segregated town - set fire to Lincoln School, the town's "colored" elementary school. The two-year protest lead by five African American mothers to carry forward the struggle sparked by that fire drew the NAACP's Thurgood Marshall and led to Clemons v. Board of Education the first test case for Brown in the North.
