Rashaun Granberry is one of the many hundreds and hundreds of Chicagoans who stood in the long line at St. Sabina Church in hopes of being hired as an extra for film producer Spike Lee's proposed movie "Chiraq" about the horrendous gang violence in Chicago. But unlike those who just read about the problem and shake their heads, Rashaun has witnessed it, lived it, seen others die from it, and is now launching a new clothing line to combat it and generate employment for those trapped the hopeless cycle of poverty, drugs, gangs, prison and death. "Bustin' Loose Clothing" is the name of the uniquely designed line of shirts, sweatshirts, pants, hats, and other accessories, symbolizing that todays youth are "bustin' loose" from the limitations that held them back from achieving their highest goals in life. Rashaun shares his story so that others may break free from the trap of drug sales, gang violence, prison and death laid by those who plan to profit from hopeless, directionless inner city youth.

SIBLING VIOLENCE- WHEN IS IT HORSEPLAY AND WHEN IS IT ABUSE?
A friend once told me that her brother made her sit in a lawn chair while he attached it to a car battery to make an electric chair. What?! Sometimes sibling rivalry isn’t harmless. Sometimes it’s violent abuse that can lead to problems in adulthood for victims.
Two people who work with and have experienced sibling abuse join us to talk about what it is, how it is minimized, and the later implications for victims.
Amy Meyers, PhD, is an assistant professor of Social Work at Molloy College and sees victims of sibling abuse in her clinical practice. She sees the terminology we use when talking about brothers and sisters as one way we overlook sibling abuse.
Nancy Kilgore, MS knows how brother and sister relationships can be traumatic and harmful. Author of Girl in the Water: A Personal Story of Bullying and Sibling Abuse, and The Sourcebook for Working with Battered Women, Nancy works with victims of abuse by sibling.
Both women join us to talk about this little-explored area of interpersonal violence.

Obama definitely stinks as president and Dick Cheney thinks he’s the worst. Rahm Emanuel winks at the press as he uses the Sam Giancana vote tabulation system to win in Chicago. Rand Paul officially enters the presidential race but can he overcome his foreign policy (or lack of it). We have all of this happening on the national scale in addition to the Jade Helm operation which, regardless of the Army’s claims is a full scale martial law practice. Make no mistake, Pete still thinks Obama wants a third term (and probably more). Putin is saber rattling all the while and trying to annex the rest of Ukraine. Iran is licking its chops over a potential nuclear weapon. What do most people care about? Sports, reality shows and Kate Upton’s latest photos.
What are some of the signs of domestic violence? Are you or someone you know in a violent relationship? What are some ways that you can protect yourself or someone you love? What about teenagers in violent relationships? J'Wan Yvette explores these questions and more on this special edition of Justified Madness. Let's break the silence on dometic violence and help victims become victors. This week's episode includes music by Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley, Eminem feat. Rihanna, Aaliyah and more.
With a new incident of police violence FINALLY being brought to light every week, Sool, Ms Baaba and Black King discuss solutions to correct this problem. Plus, discussions about Jay-Z's Tidal freestyle and some thoughts aboutthe thugs from the Waco biker gang shootout.
The Waco events mirror the unrest provoked by either drug wars or perceived police brutality. This time the nation sea's the violence is not regulated to African American youths but white bikers whom by the appearance of some that are middle-aged. The message is that violence is the result of a nation that has increasingly sought to remove God from the public square and its institution. The Church must not capitulate and disappear but invoke and deploy in every phase of the social strata as never before
