Tonight it's realer than ever on "It's Real Talk Radio" as we have 2 major topics we're covering. On the first half of the show we'll be discussing the "Atlanta Public School Cheating Scandal" which has been a nationally recognized case that has just about come to an end as a jury has found all but 1 of the accused staff guilty of Count 1: Conspiracy to violate the racketeering influence and corrupt organizations act. Some were found guilty of other crimes but Count 1 was the most serious. Upon sentencing, these ex-staff members of the APS System could be facing a lot of time behind bars and the question we're asking our listeners is do you agree with the outcome, or do you think sending them to jail was too harsh of a penalty considering the crime? One thing's for sure, you know we're gonna keep it real with our perspectives.
On the second half of tonight's show, we'll be discussing Officer Michael Slager's fatal shooting of Walter Scott. Officer Slager, a South Carolina Law Enforcement officer, gunned down an unarmed man by the name of Walter Scott after he tried to flee from being severely Tasered . The footage that was recorded by Fayden Santana, a man who happened to be in the area with a camera phone, doesn't show what took place before Walter Scott took off running and was ultimately gunned down in the process, but what it does show is he didn't at the time of fleeing oppose a threat and as a result was shot 5 times including 4 shots to his back.
How do you feel about Officer Slager's decision? Was it bad judgement, was it cruel intent and ultimately murder in cold blood, or do you actually agree with Officer Slager's use of deadly force? You can believe we're gonna keep it real with our opinions on what went down so make sure you don't miss out! Call in # 347-838-9540
In the three-minute video, Slager can be seen approaching Walter Scott after shooting him, yelling at him to “put your hands behind your back.” Scott is motionless, face down on the ground. Slager then handcuffs Scott as another officer comes to help Slager.
“It’s not about race. It’s about power,” attorney L. Chris Stewart, the Scott’s attorney told the Los Angeles Times. “That officer thought he could just shoot this man. He thought Mr. Scott was expendable.”
At a press conference Tuesday night, Stewart said Slager “just casually shot a man in the back that many times. It speaks to the value of human life, which is a bigger issue than trying to just make this a small issue of race. This is a bigger issue of human life and the value of it. And when people start respecting that more, it won’t matter what color you are.”
Stewart, the Scott family’s attorney, said anyone who watches the video can clearly see it was murder. He said he is “disappointed that the initial reports were totally on the side of the officer. The spokesperson for the police reported that ‘the man tried to grab the Taser’ and once again if we’d just took the initial newspaper reports, it would have been ‘why’d that guy grab the Taser, he shouldn’t have tried to hurt a cop.’ But that wasn’t what happened. And the truth came out.”
State Rep. Justin Bamberg, an attorney, said at the press conference, “Regardless of what may have happened leading up to this shooting, at the moment (Scott) turned and ran, and was no longer a threat to the officer or anybody else, that officer was completely and wholeheartedly unjustified in gunning down Mr. Scott. He did not shoot once. He shot seven times, paused, and then fired an eighth round.”

NYS Governor Cuomo manipulated the state budget, holding up its passage, until it included the hugely unpopular and anti-worker practice of pegging teachers tenure and evaluations to standardized tests grade results. While dropped from inclusion in the budget the Governors desire to see the proliferation of charter schools remains a mainstay on his educational agenda. These issues have been been heating up ever since Pres. Bush s No Child Left Behind plan, but especially since the roll out of Race to The Top and the Common Core State Standards so Building Bridges decided to tackle these issues with with Diane Ravitch, who infuses research, about the recent history of education policy reform, the strategies used for fighting back against these policies, and who proposes solutions that work to create sustainable, equitable, anti-racist, democratic and meaningful public education. Our conversation with Diane Ravitch is for anyone interested in an insider s look and leading a resistance or forming an organization towards reclaiming our public schools and reclaiming the public narrative around education policy.

Last week the majority in the state legislature, under the leadership of Gov. Sam Brownback passed a new controversial law providing "block grant" funding to our public schools. The agenda has many critics, and may force a constitutional crisis in the supreme court. Later this week from March 28 - 30 people will be walking from Johnson County (NE Kansas) to the Topeka statehouse to raise awareness and promote participation of the public.
Information about this event is at Game on for Kansas Schools. Stay tuned to RFK for updates.
Today we will broadcast a special program on the corporate attempt to take over and privatize our public schools with Charter Schools. The show will expose how the "reform" movement under Obama's "Race to the Top" is being used as a guise to bring about this privatization of our public schools. You'll learn how they're doing it, who's behind it and what you can do about it.
