America is a funny land.
Not funny as in "ha ha," but funny as in strange.
So strange that even though cops have historically been at odds with Blacks, people try to pretend that there is something else going on in a so-called justice system that sometimes seems like it persecutes just us.
But anyone who has lived in a poor neighborhood with their eyes and mind open realizes that the "Thin Blue Line," is typically erected between the "haves" and the "have nots," frequently doling out abuse to the "have nots."
And, the "have nots" don’t always get their day in court when there is abuse, which is why periodically, the people speak in the loudest voice possible—riots.
Ferguson spoke in that loud voice and now, Baltimore is speaking as well.
Perhaps no city has the reputation for rioting that Los Angeles has earned.
This April 29, marked the 23rd anniversary of the notorious LA Riots.
And it is business as usual, from Rodney King to Micheal Brown and from Eric Garner to Freddy Gray, countless Black men and women in between, as well as throughout American history.

Good Morning and welcome to the Seriouside of the jrilshow. We will talk about the following topics this morning:
Saturday night, sitting in my parking space in front of my town home, tears poured out of my eyes as if someone had died. Monday morning was just around the corner and I would have to return to my job. No one hated me at work, (that I knew of) and I did not hate the job or anyone there. What was happening to me was that I was not able to live my dream. Finally, getting out of the car at 3 a.m. and making my way into my town home the tears continued. I lay in bed all day on Sunday, dreading Monday. I got myself together and I went to go get the answer to know what to do next. When I arrived at my mom's I sat on the side of her bed, swollen face and all. She asked, "What's the matter?" I said, "I want to live my dream." She said, "Then do it." I said, "You don't understand, I don't want to go to my job in the morning." I could not believe that my mother was saying for me to live my dream. She was the very person I KNEW would tell me to return to work. She told me, "Hell, you need to be happy, so live your dream."
Stop by and enjoy some great conversation and smooth jazz on the Seriouside of the jrilshow!

I'M GOING TO KICK YOUR ASS AND GET AWAY WITH IT!!!! --- Call in & Sound Off!! Do you know what PROBALE CAUSE is, REASONABLE SUSPICION is, your rights during a traffic stop, WHAT the Police are NOT supposed to be asking you or better yet why so many Criminal Court cases are ending up with so many Black Men being targeted and locked up! Family KNOWING is POWER. I want to bring to you the facts on the rights many of you don’t know you have. The police, prosecutors and judges take complete advantage of the fact that you don’t know the rules. Coming straight from the mouth of a ex cop, DON'T miss this show!!!! Are you tired of the POLICE pulling you over, for no reason? Has anyone ever really looked up the term RACIAL PROFILING? Do you really know your rights? What are the Police supposed to not be asking you? What is the best way for you to address the Police during a traffic stop? Hell, do you know what an illegal search is? Do you know what circumstances allow the Police to conduct a search of you WITHOUT a warrant? Do you know what the term PROBALE CAUSE is and what supports it in court?
Well if you don’t know -- be sure to tune in as Don Adams drop some on the Boys in Blue.
