Chris' guest is community activist Lita Herron of the Southern California Cease Fire Committee. We discuss her involvement with local Los Angeles area community activists in representing Marlene Pinnock, the great grandmother seen being brutally beaten by a still-unidentified California Highway Patrol Officer on Tuesday 71/14.

As is often the case, recent news has new victims alleging this officer has a habit of similiar behavior. He has put on administrative leave, but is still getting paid. Host Chris Stevenson feels this officer's behavior-along with a previous assault on a black female in Arizona-is part of a rising patern of resentment he calls Black-Crazy. This has been manifest increasingly since the election of a black president, but is now not excluding the women.

Feel free to call in with your question or comments to Ms. Herron, or scroll down to the comment section during or after the show.
