As always, the close the show with their best bets for the week.
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!
Domestic violence is a heated topic with many different views on what is abuse and how victims should deal with it. Laws have been put in place to have zero tolerance but have they worked the way they were intended and have they created criminals for incidents that should not have resulted in arrest. Is it a problem for just women and why do victims stay so long. Can ABUSERS be changed and if so how. This topic needs more attention and not just for the obvious reasons join us live and share your thoughts

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!!!!
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.
Domestic violence is a term used to characterize a pattern of obvious and subtle hash and brash behaviours resulting into physical and psychological abuses between partners in any types of intimate relationships or other members in a household. Domestic violence can be in a cumulative form of physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse or any other type of control mechanism to coerce another individual perpetually. Consequences of domestic violence vary from anxiety, dismay, social disconnect, fragile mental state, tension, breakdown mental and unpredictable consequences such as illness, homicide or permanent disfigurement.
Although domestic violence is a punishable crime and a civil wrong in most well developed countries, it is often under-reported for obvious reasons and hard to prove before the consequence of violence has already taken its toll on the victim, who also may act in self-defence or retaliation. This problem is a growing concern for law enforcement everywhere, as it creates inherent problems in the criminal justice system. Therefore, it is within our civil responsibility to the society as well as it is to the state that we address this issue together. We urge people to join the discussion to help shed a light on various perspectives surrounding domestic violence and more on how to encourage victims to talk openly about how to identify and correct the pattern before it escalates. There are help programs for both abusers and victims.
In the black comunity we have a history of violence. Unfortunately, the violence is not always incoming from another entity, but within our own comunity. Often times in light of situations like the murder of Mike Brown in Missouri we band together to let our voices be heard. But where are our voices when the violenceis amongst ourselves? Call in this Monday at 7pm EST to comment on the HOT TOPIC - "WHAT SHOULD WE BE LEARNING FROM THE DEATH OF MIKE BROWN?" Call 760.283.4647 to listen in LIVE and press the #1 key to comment on the air!

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 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.
