Eighty-two people were shot in Chicago over the July 4th weekend. Fourteen of those people died. Most of the victims were Black and Latino men.
Dr. Roger A. Mitchell has made it his personal crusade to put an end to the senseless violence that consumes far too many sons and brothers, daughters and sisters, and that lays waste to entire communities. Named by Mayor Vincent Gray in Washington, DC as Chief Medical Examiner earlier this year after a stint as Regional Medical Examiner in New Jersey, Dr. Mitchell is breathing life into his unique profession of forensic pathology by sharing vital information with communities and invigorating a movement that had lost its focus. He talks to us about his heavy charge as Chief Medical Examiner, about his mission to save Black lives, and about his forthcoming memoir, The Price of Freedom: A Son's Journey.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and the President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates racial equity plans and promotes racial equity, particularly in education.

ATHLETES, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, AND ARE WE TAKING IT SERIOUSLY?
We’ve all seen the headlines- Ray Rice gets two game suspension for knocking his fiancé unconscious and dragging her off a casino elevator. Joe Mixon under investigation for punching a woman in the face. One of the Steubenville high school students convicted of rape is back on the football field. The news reports go on and on with allegations and prosecutions of athletes at all levels for violence against women. And what are we doing about it? The NFL gives a slap on the hand to Rice (who could have been suspended for numerous games if he had smoked a joint). Sports fans still line up for autographs, and the victims are disparaged for “ruining” the athlete’s life. Have we really slipped down the rabbit hole when it comes to seriously dealing with violent athletes?
So let’s talk about it. Brian O’Connor, Director of Public Education Campaigns and Programs for Futures Without Violence where he crafts national and international violence prevention campaigns for a variety of audiences. He’s former marketer of global brands such as Gatorade and Kodak, and reporter for the Village Voice. His work engaging men inspires them to model positive masculinity and teach boys that violence never equals strength. Brian holds a master's from Columbia University and is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists. He is the former president of the board of Root Division, an arts education non-profit based in San Francisco where he lives.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about our responses to athletes who are also abusers.

We here at Taking Shots Radio love women. Love Them! Lately we've been accused of being misogynists (google it). So to stop all that noise we dropped a classic on domestic violence. We tell you what to do to avoid having a hardcore wrestling match with your significant other and then run down the list of a few celebrities that have knuckled up against their spouses!

Tonight, Crystal Collins, NYS Senatorial Candidate 36th District will join Bare It All to discuss teen violence. We will cover the senseless death of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and others. What happened to the days when kids went to school to learn? We have to be concerned about bullying and cyber bullying and whether our child's classmate will come in and shoot up the school. What happened to the days when our teens could walk the street without fear of being shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer or the police? What can we, as a society do to protect our children? Let your voice be heard!!!!
From the days of your fathers you have TURNED ASIDE FROM MY STATUTES (Commandments of God not man) and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you," says the LORD of hosts. (Yeshua Elohim)
'I (Yeshua Melech) will set My face against you so that you will be STRUCK DOWN before your enemies.Those who hate you WILL RULE OVER YOU, AND YOU WILL FLEE when no one is pursuing you.
"Moreover, I will deliver the Egyptians (The world) into the hand of a cruel master, (AntiChrist) And a mighty king will rule over them," declares the Lord GOD of hosts.
Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to TAKE PEACE FROM THE EARTH AND TO MAKE PEOPLE KILL EACH OTHER. To him was given a LARGE SWORD. (Prophetic symbol of WAR)
And there shall be SIGNS UPON THE EARTH; DISTRESS OF NATIONS WITH PERPLEXITY.
TERROR (Terrorism) will seize them, PAIN and ANGUISH will grip them. They will writhe like a woman in labor.
They will look aghast at each other, their faces aflame.
People will faint from TERROR, apprehensive of what is coming on the world.
And if a KINGDOM be divided against itself, that KINGDOM cannot stand.
For ALL THESE THINGS must come to pass, BUT THE END IS NOT YET. (end of this church age)
Malachi 3:7, Leviticus 26:17, Luke 21:25, 26, Matthew 24:6, Isaiah 13:8, 19:4, Mark 3:24
Where does The Word stand on the issue?
I believe these policemen are afraid of these young men and women because of a stereo type. Because of this fear, even if they don't see a weapon, if the young man/woman just flinches, the officer pulls the trigger out of fear. It's not right at all, but we as Believers have got to come together and break this generational curse of violence on our people. This is not a natural thing, it's spiritual. Satan wants to kill our next generation of good men/women and he wants the present generation to kill each other out of anger. We must remember who the real culprit is.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
We must come together as people of God to bring restoration to our present generation and generations to come.
Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
A spiritual fault is the same as a natural fault line. You don't know it's there until it has caused an earthquake and killed or injured many OR Scientists(Men/Women of God) study a specific area and find the fault line and repair it before it can cause anymore major damage to the area.

SHOW NOTES: This is our EDUCATORS’ EDEN™ series wherein we explore the paradise that the most passionate, creative and committed educators create for themselves, their students, peers, administrations and institutions! This episode is, “Why Don’t Students Read…the Syllabus, Assignment Instructions, My Email, etc.?”
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela
It is exciting when we educators create and disseminate the tools to enable out students to succeed! We are eager for them to enjoy learning new content, to enlarge their vision of the world and to uncover their hidden talents via our course. Our intention is for them to have every available opportunity to prepare, plan and provide their best quality work! This drives us to provide clarity and communication to make their tasks as well defined as possible. What is required, when it is required, how it should be submitted, where it should be submitted, how it will be evaluated and graded, when it will returned to them, etc., are all important details that we want them to have by the start of the course! Thus, they will be able to plan ahead to achieve all of their academic goals in conjunction with all of their other responsibilities throughout the course term.
We are in a constant improvement process to enhance and improve our syllabus, assignments, instructions, class communications, etc., to make them clearer and more comprehensive. Ideally, our students will be able to use these documents as guides to ensure that they understand all of the requirements and are meeting their own individual academic goals.
The most pristine and powerful documentation is useless if it is not acc
Something to think about:
Women ages 16 to 24 experience the highest per capita rates of intimate violence-nearly 20 per 1000 women." (Bureau of Justice Special Report: Intimate Partner Violence, May 2000)
1 in 3 women will be assaulted by an intimate partner in her lifetime (30-50% of all women)
30% of LGBT couples experience domestic violence
11 women die every day as a result of domestic violence
Tune in tonight as Teko wraps up this series on domestic violence.
We Feed the Homeless Philly Community Activist Craig Stroman and Urban Therapy with SUN are coming together on this show to try to unravel the violence that is so pervasive in our society today. You have to admit that things are pretty ridiculous right now when we consider the stories of so many unarmed Black men being killed by our police forces in different parts of the country. Yeah and it does seem to be a Black thing once again. This is not a new problem and even more unfortunate is that it's something that we are seeming to get used to. This is unacceptable. Something has to be done about the people that our tax dollars pay to protect and serve but who are becoming the criminals themselves. As crazy as it sounds, the cops are now the ones making the news for robbing, raping and murder. Really? Not acceptable. We need to holla at y'all about this.
Our youth seem to be out of control. Our adults seem to be out of control. Our gangs have never been under our control but how much longer can we afford to look the other way about our counter-cultures and expect anything to improve?
We seem to settling our differences with weapons more and more and who do we have to blame for this? Is it our government agencies that give us access to the weapons? Would eliminating the weapons stop the violence anyway?
Is it the media that glorifies the eye for an eye ideology to blame for all this violence? Can we blame the media for everything? What is our individual role in all of this and what can we do to help?
Are y'all ready for this one? Are you sure?........ Could the things that we are eating be part of the reason for all the violence that we are being exposed to? Sit on that one for a minute.
