SORT BY Relevancy
Domestic violence is a term used to characterize a pattern of obvious and subtle hash and brash behaviors resulting into physical and psychological abuses between partners in any types of intimate relationships or other members in a household. Domestic violence can be in a cumulative form of physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse or any other type of control mechanism to coerce another individual perpetually. Consequences of domestic violence vary from anxiety, dismay, social disconnect, fragile mental state, tension, breakdown mental and unpredictable consequences such as illness, homicide or permanent disfigurement.
In 1994, the US Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act ("VAWA"). This Act, and the 1996 additions to the Act, recognizes that domestic violence is a national crime and that federal laws can help an overburdened state and local criminal justice system. Available practical information in the US federal domestic violence laws and penalties and the rights of federal victims can be found here: Federal Domestic Violence Laws http://www.justice.gov/usao/gan/documents/federallaws.pdf

Today we will raise questions surrounding the shooting death of Michael Brown, another case of police brutality or the nature of law enforcement:
Why do you think many African-Americans are more likely to perceive this incident as police brutality and not the nature of law enforcement?
If the offender is not armed are there reasonable alternatives to the gun?
Wallach on Law. Gun Legislation & Officer Training, With California Assembly Member Das Williams, And Gun Rights Activist Sheriff Richard Mack (“Sheriff Mack”). Gun regulation is potentially the most partisan and divisive issue in the U.S. Some believe that any form of gun regulation in unlawful. Others don’t believe the Second Amendment provides a right to possess a gun free from regulation. And others are more concerned with the present – determining that, in the wake of multiple tragedies – the need to better regulate gun access is essential. This week, Sheriff Mack joins us to explain why he believes gun regulations are illegal, and that our focus should be ending the drug war and improving officer training. And in the wake of the Isla Vista tragedy, Cal. Assembly Person Das Williams has co-authored a bill that provides a mechanism to keep those who may be unstable temporarily away from weaponry. He joins us (from the Assembly floor) to discuss his bill as it moves through the California Legislature.
Wallach on Law airs on AM stations nationwide on Saturdays at 1:00pm Eastern Time, and can also be heard on iTunes, iHeart Radio.

SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Simply put, the Blue Wall of Safety has become the Big Black Nightmare for the African-American society. The force designed to put citizens' fears to rest, keep society safe, and catch the bad guys have themselves become the source origin of fear, the threats of danger, an the very disarray they are sworn to contain. The new security blanket of "perceived threats" used by the police to unlawfully detain non-violent, unaggressive citizens that result in tragedies or fatalities, along with the pre-rehearsed excuses of "I-feared-for-my-life" at the mere presence of an African-American in the vicinity of a Caucasian resident or neighborhood has completely discombublated the true responsibilities of our law enforcement officials and their boundaries. Civil liberties being violated is an understatement, and once again, even with the newly delivered Guilty verdict against Theodore Wafer, outrage with action and consequences must be pressed upon the powers that be. Join in tonight at 10:30 pm as we discuss the high profile murder cases, the justice carried out, or not, in these cases. Also, tune in as we interview Tylon Washington of GoPro Radio in Jersey City, who is on the receiving end of a shakedown to shut down his radio network as it has become a powerful verbal beacon for the African-AMerican community. Tune it to hear how you can help him stop the injustice. Call in at 347-327-9967.
