Tuesday April 7, 2015 is Election Day in Ferguson, Missouri, Chicago, Illinois and a number of cities across the U.S. Police brutality is a major issue in communities where racism has run rampant throughout the criminal justice system and police have operated as enforcers in an ongoing practice of criminalizing African Americans, Latinos, and low income whites. When will it stop? Many citizens say it's time to change the people in City Hall. But the question is, what can elected officials really do to end police abuse of citizens? Fire the entire police force and start over with new hires? Develop a rigorous retraining program that involves racial sensitivity? Create a Citizen Review Board with the authority to fire police if found guilty of using unnecessary excessive force? Require that police who serve a community must live in the community that they police? Have body cameras on all officers, which must be on and active during all interactions with citizens? Theodore Daffin, a victim of police abuse and a subsequent cover up, shares his story and his hopes of one day receiving justice.
It has become a broken record. I thought my ancestors and those that have came before me suffered enough but, the suffering continues. You seen the video of police officer Michael Blagger shooting the Walter Scott. The deaths of black men at the hands of police officers keep adding up. All the marching in the world hasn't changed enough has it? What america needs is a change in the way these police officers are being trained. Otherwise this volcano will begin to errupt soon or, The aftermath that will follow will be monumental. What is clear is that the police are brainwashed like much of the majority race and media. Why is it so acceptable that Black men to be killed?A Texas Bill will make recording police illegal unfreaking real!!!.

Tonight's special guest is Stacie Kelly from Victoria BC, an abuse survivor and activist who's serving as the Coordinator for 1st Annual #NoMoreShame Conference 2015, being put on by Trauma University which will be held June 26, 27 & 28th in Portland, Oregon. It's described as "For Survivors. By Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse." Born and raised an Oregonian, Stacie describes herself as, "an exceptionally positive individual who enjoys staying busy." But, she explains, "About three years ago I was diagnosed with Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). I am a survivor of a decade of incest - an unfortunate multi-generational pattern of abuse that extends as far back as three generations ago. I am on bi-daily antidepressant medication(s) and am currently in weekly somatic counseling." She says, "Childhood trauma is still a relatively new field of study and it is often overshadowed by Veterans and/or people with Traumatic Brain Injuries. My hope is to shed light on the daily life of someone struggling with mental wellness and provide insight on the impact of sexual abuse and silence." And true to form she's not just sitting back waiting for others to make further developments in the field. "I am currently working in a volunteer capacity as a Conference Coordinator for Trauma Recovery University. I speak every day to survivors around the globe who are interested in participating in our conference. It is survivor led and born out of passion to break the cycle of shame, silence and abuse."
