    The Juvenile Justice System - A Dangerous Web

    in Education

    The juvenile justice and criminal justice systems ensnare far too many black and brown boys and men. Increasingly, women are caught in this dangerous web too. On this episode of Know-It-All, we are exploring the contours of some of the barriers to mental health and developmental wellness for communities of color that can lead to mass incarceration.


    Dr. Troy Waller is a licensed professional counselor with 15 years of counseling experience. He explains the implications of the breaks in various systems - education, criminal justice, and health care - that keep those systems from adequately protecting and serving black and brown people. He'll share his insights about how these systemic failures manifest and show up in the lives of adults, no matter their socioeconomic status.


    Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and founder of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans and promotes equity in education in compliance with federal civil rights law.

    Why Justice is needed in this society?

    in Politics

     


    A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted.


    The importance and significance of justice can never be underestimated in the affairs of men. This is so because according to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice.”


    Verily, justice occupies the highest place in the hierarchy of human values. Under the Old Testament particularly in the Book of Micah, the teachings of the prophets of Israel were summarized into one verse only: “to do justice; to show constant love and to live in humble fellowship with God.”


    Actually, justice is synonymous with righteousness in the sense that what is righteous is just and what is just is righteous.


    Indeed, it is important to be just for according to Confucius “heaven gives long and good life to the just.” His statement finds strong support in two biblical passages, to wit:


    “Righteous men – men of integrity – will live in this land of ours. But God will snatch wicked men from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground.” (Proverbs 2:21-22)


    “The Lord puts a curse on the house of wicked men and blesses the homes of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3:33

    Criminal Justice System vs. Crime

    in Politics

    Tonight we will discuss the Criminal Justice System and why it is not working for black people.  We will also discuss a case here in Inkster, Michigan concerning the beating of a 57yo African American Male below:


    Fighting back tears, a Detroit man and longtime auto worker with no criminal history, described how Inkster police officers dragged him from his car one night in January, choked him, beat him and Tasered him during a traffic stop that was caught on patrol car video.


    "He was beating me upside the head," Floyd Dent, 57, told a horde of reporters and TV crews during a press conference at his attorney's office Wednesday afternoon, as tears trickled his cheeks. "I was trying to protect my face with my right arm. I heard one of them say, 'tase the M...F. '"


    The Jan. 28 incident was caught on police video cameras and is making national news. It shows Inkster police pulling over Dent in his 2011 tan Cadillac near South River Park Drive and Inkster Drive shortly before 10 p.m. The two officers approach with their guns drawn. As Dent opens the door, they pull him out and shove him to the ground. Dent does not appear in the video to be resisting arrest.

    Cochran Firm Fraud v. Justice for Stanley Parker, Killed by St. Louis PD 2002

    in Politics Progressive

    Another Cochran Firm Fraud: Meet us Thursday night at 6:00pmPST to meet Ms. J. Nashville and learn about police violence against her son, Stanley Parker, 17, and The Cochran Firm fraud that robbed her family of justice in this wrongful death case. Call in at (818)572.2947 to NNIA1 at Blogtalkradio (Justice for All). The African American youth was killed by a St.Louis police officer Keith McGull in 2002. On the civil trial date in 2006, Rodney Holmes, Esq., a Cochran Firm lawyer, was missing in action. Holmes did not appear in court to defend his client's wrongful death case. Nashville called The Cochran Firm's office and inquired. The Cochran Firm frauds reportedly called Holmes repeatedly but claimed they could not reach the missing attorney. The police department's lawyer reportedly told Nashville that Holmes often did that to clients. Once again, The Cochran Firm frauds used up their client's statute of limitations then pulled their CoIntelPro trick and "disappeared" -­ this time on the court date. Later, Nashville was allegedly told that The Cochran Firm had no money to pay for a continuance. She says she could not find another lawyer to take the case at the last minute and that the judge refused to allow her to proceed as a pro se plaintiff. Therefore, her son's wrongful death resulted in justice denied. Many Cochran Firm clients find themselves in similar circumstances. Read more at
