    The Precinct Project- Building A Real Political Network

    in Current Events

    As the old saying goes, all politics is local.  In the American system of democracy, we accomplish political ends through political parties.  And the position of precinct committeeman is the building block on which all party activity ultimately rests. 
    Tonight we will discuss the role of the precinct committeman and how concerned citizens can affect the direction of the GOP by becoming one.

    Episode 34 - #OperationBaltimore or A Fire Sale at the CVS is a Gray Area

    in Current Events

    Another week, another minority unfortunately dies at the hands of our nations finest. Yes our boys in blue don't seem to be slowing their roll of murder and mayhem. The story is similar to others, yet the details and laws that aided in the mishandling are slightly different.


    Young Freddie Gray wasn't shot in the back. Details about how roughed up he was at the time of arrest differ, but one detail of this case made the public cringe, if for nothing more than the fact that the police couldn't reveal, by statute, what had happened to this young man after being loaded into the paddy wagon, not to mention his original sin was making eye contact and possibly heading the other direction. 


    After the police gave light chase, the apprehended him, restrained him with handcuffs, and caused enough pain that he was screaming in agony while being loaded into the wagon. They drove to the police precinct, and in that spat of time, Freddie's neck was 80% separated from his spine. They finally got him medical attention, where he slipped into a coma and passed away within a week. 


    Police offered no explanation, and why should they, Maryland has a law enforcement bill of rights that grants cops 10 to get their stories straight.As is now routine, angry protests followed, at first peaceful, but as Baltimore is a powder keg of inequality and racial tension, it soon escalated into riots the likes of which haven't happened since the great riots of the 60s when MLK was assassinated. 


    Is it finally time to address the underlying issues plaguing our society? What are they, and how to we appease the communities that are currently being disenfranchised by the symptoms of this divisive issue. The police are low hanging fruit in this grand problem. What is the root of it?

    OUTSIDE, INSIDE A POLICE STATE

    in Politics

    Program Summary: April 25, 2015


    @Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast." 


    In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.


    Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."


     Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
    In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking.  On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."

    What is the proper way to behave at a traffic stop for police and driver, alike

    in News

    Recent traffic stop situations in the the last year, racial tensions are Code Orange, when it comes to Civil Liberties..


    What should be expected from the driver, and how should an officer perform, is a mystery, as well as, the source of the madness.


    Thankfully with the instructional information of Major C. L. Clemons #451 North Precinct /District 3 Commander and Lieutenant J.D. McClure #530 Gwinnett County Police Dept. Office of Professional Standards, drivers will know what to expect while traveling through Georgia this Spring and Summer in 2015.


    Safety before race is the most important reason for a traffic stop in Georgia.

    Isaac Mwanza - Governance Advisor YALI

    in Politics

    Isaac Mwanza serves as Governance Advisor at the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) in Zambia, he was recently in the United States as a Mandela Washington Fellow at the Invitation of US President Obama and studied civic leaders at the Presidential Precinct in Virginia.During the Fellowship, he studied at Jameson Madison's Montpelier Center for the Constitution, Americas premier constitutional training center where he studied on constitutional reform. YALI was until recently part of the Grand Coalition on the people driven constitution in Zambia until they left the organization whose emphasis and position is enacting the constitution through a national referendum. Isaac joins us to discuss YALI's position on the constitution adoption process, is it a logical or even practical for the constitution to be enacted before the 2016 General Elections? What are the options of this being achieved at minimal cost with all stake holders being in agreement? Is the government road map realistic or it is another strategy of delaying tactics? which provisions in the draft constitution are YALI's primary concern which need to be addressed? Join us for another insightful discussion as we reflect on the daunting task of the constitution making process in Zambia and how those in the Diaspora community can contribute to the process.
