Those who participated in the lynching consisted of the general public with varied backgrounds. No one was prosecuted for the lynching of the two men. I want to devote more time and thought for this topic. I think there's something more sinister happening here. While the lynching of criminals is acceptable at times, there may be other motives at play that have no relation to justice. The media incited this mob action and one might ask who made those decisions and why. The media also knew about their overwhelming power to shape public opinion that served their purpose for the moment. I suspect a criminal act of greater significance was perpetrated against the public by the media. Today we know our media is corrupt and doesn't serve the public interest.
I became aware of the Artist Pablo Hernandez a few months ago through a short film titled, "Pablo: The Artist Within" produced and directed by Noah DeBonisis.
Pablo was arrested at 16 years old and became a man in a Cuban Forced Labor Camp where many intellectuals were held as political prisoners. His interest in art and music continued developing through the years inside the camp.
Inside Pablo's mind was a place the Communist could not get in, there was a place where Pablo was free to go and explore another world, a place where creativity had no boundaries.
Pablo's hands were not only blessed to play some of the most beautiful classical music you will ever hear but he was also blessed with the grand ability to paint.
We'll hear about how Pablo reached US soil and how he began to receive the appreciation, recognition and respect that he dreamed of for his work.
You can also watch Pablo speak about his passion for art being both a painter as well as a pianist in a short documentary titled 'Expressions of a Modern Minstrel' by Roberto Cayuso.
This week we will have our guest, Ken Holtz an investigative reporter, and a retired sheriff examine corruption within San Bernardino County. And as usual where there is corruption money is usually involved. Unfortunately the money involved is your money Mr. and Ms. Taxpayer! Sadly there is a lot of money and a lot of corruption within our County Government according to Mr. Holtz. You may see some of Mr. Holtz's articles on iEpolitics.
Mr. Holtz like many believes we must tackle the corruption within San Bernardino County head on by starting with the Sheriff's Department. The department has an annual budget of over $500,000,000 (your money), employs over 1600 deputies and has over 2,000 volunteers. Many feel the department is corrupt and mismanaged and the taxpayer bears the brunt of it. The real victims are the law abiding, taxpaying citizens of the county. Ken is a strong supporter of Paul D. Schrader for SBCO Sheriff.
We invite you to listen to "Ask Your Sheriff" on your computer or on the telephone. All shows are live but are recorded to be heard anytime in the future. Please feel free to copy and share.
Our chat room will be open during the entire show. We invite all your questions. Opposing points of view are welcomed.
