Call in to speak with the host
This week we speak with Mr. Alex Livingston, son of Kyam Livingston, a 37 year old Brooklyn NY woman who died in police custody after repeated pleas for medical assistance were ignored. The family needs our support, prayers and assistance to get justice and ensure that no one else suffer this dehumanizing and fatal treatment.
I have said time and time again, that when meeting with families in these instances and under these circumstances, I am at a loss of words; no words can remove the pain. However, Kyam's mother is not at a loss of words. On Sunday, August 11, 2013, the victim's mother uttered repeatedly, "this is mine!" meaning, this pain is mine, this fight is mine, this human being that was left to die is mine! According to the family, Kyam's story, which is all too familiar to people in this struggle, is one of betrayal, hurt, pain, and the most egregious forms of disrespect and disregard towards human life!
Like we said on this program during August 2012, amid this fight for justice involving the Murder/Lynching of Ramarley Graham at the hands of the NYPD, Bronx NY, CPR, i.e.. Courtesy-Professionalism-and-Respect, can and does kill! (Theme by Constance Malcolm, Graham's mother.)
