9:30pm to 11:30pm Est.
Join us for an "online" town hall meeting on the subject of police brutality, citizen protocol and enhancing community-police relations. Learn what should be done in order to prevent another Ferguson in your city.
Joining us live in the discussion is esteemed Civil Rights Attorney John Burris-- You may know his work from his landmark case, client and movie; Fruitvale Station and Client Oscar Grant (RIP). He has been counsel in chief on several other high profile, landmark cases such as the Oakland Riders class action. He's represented everyone from Rodney King, Barry Bonds to Tupac. He is also the author of "BLUE vs. BLACK: Let's End the Conflict between Police and Minorities."
Attorney Burris will be joined by famed Civil Rights Attorney, Irv Joyner. Attorney Joyner has been in the trenches and on the front lines of many Civil Rights cases, the Moral Monday Protests, and he is the lead attorney for the North Carolina NAACP. He was also named as "case monitor" in the infamous "Duke Lacrosse" case and countless other cases representing notable clients. Attorney Joyner has also authored several books and is a Law Professor at North Carolina Central School of Law, Durham, NC.
Also confirmed on the show is Police Chief Keith Humphrey of Norman, Oklahoma. He will be on to share how he has played a pivotal role in changing the culture and the conversation between police agencies and the community in his city. He will also discuss ways in which other cities can create a model and/or learn that it is ok to move forward in this way without fear of liability; as a preventative measure and perhaps in creating a paradigm shift in the culture of police and community members.
It has become a broken record. I thought my ancestors and those that have came before me suffered enough but, the suffering continues. You seen the video of police officer Michael Blagger shooting the Walter Scott. The deaths of black men at the hands of police officers keep adding up. All the marching in the world hasn't changed enough has it? What america needs is a change in the way these police officers are being trained. Otherwise this volcano will begin to errupt soon or, The aftermath that will follow will be monumental. What is clear is that the police are brainwashed like much of the majority race and media. Why is it so acceptable that Black men to be killed?A Texas Bill will make recording police illegal unfreaking real!!!.
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."
