    Erica Garner, a daughter of Chokehold Victim Eric Garner & Host Doshon Farad

    in Education

    "If A Good cop actually used forced to stop the murder of my dad then he would be alive today." ~ Erica Garner

    WWW.BlackHistoryBlog.com | WWW.BlackhistoryUniversity.com

    Erica Garner, the daughter of chokehold victim Eric Garner will discuss the latest indictments and arrest of police with guest host, Dashon Farad on The Gist of Freedom.

    Texas Cop who threw girl to ground and pointing his pistol at other black youths resigns.

    It appears two Good Cops saved the lives of the two teens Casebolt drew his gun on the teens while they tried to assist a teenager being assaulted by Casebolt.

    The two officers in this brief video represent two different policing styles: the Guardian and the Warrior. As a former police officer and current policing scholar, I know that an officer’s mindset has tremendous impact on police/civilian encounters.

    in Sports

    This might be a “relaxed” Frat House Saturday, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a packed and provocative one . . . and THAT it is!

    Frat House Mike kicks off the show with the inspiring interview with NFL unrestricted free agent and Kentucky Wildcat 2014 grad Donte Rumph who refuses to give up trying to get a roster spot on an NFL team, and went so far as to set up a tent and live across the street from the Atlanta Falcons training facility. This is MUST radio listening to hear his “Tent of Faith” story!

    The FIFA financial scandal and federal indictments blew-up this week and so did Frat House Mike and, friend of Frat House Sports, Eric Purdy on Thursday night’s Frat House Sports Show! MUST radio listening #2!

    MUST radio listening #3: We were finally able to connect with our Indianapolis and Sirius XM – ESPN Radio buddy Jeff Rickard to chat about his 30-year broadcasting career and a bit of MLB baseball on our Clean-Up Hitters program.

    Have you gotten the idea yet? This is MUST Saturday afternoon listening . . . it’s fun and oh so “relaxed” so be sure to tune in to Frat House Mike and give him a call at 347 – 826 – 9964!

    C.D. - Baltimore Exposes a Dire Need for Help & that Black Lives do NOT Matter !

    in Current Events


    OK, I have to re-re correct myself, for it was stated before the grand jury indictments, that State's Attorney Mosley had indeed accomplished this at the time she read the charges against the BPD6. 

    I was wrong, but only because of the errant reporting by the media.

    In the meantime, have you read about how Baltimore is practically spiraling out of control?

    38 murders so far in May, the worse is 15 years? Including the execution-style slaying of a 31-year-old woman and her 7-yeaer-old son? 

    Black Lives Matter? Great for a wall-hanging slogan, but apparently, for the lot of us, that's as far as it goes. 

    Any protests? Rallies? 

    As the trial of the BPD6 approaches, are the BPD partly to blame? After all, the reports are that they're either too demoralized or afraid, to carry out their sworn duty as police officers. According to the head of their union, the BPD is "more afraid of going to jail than getting shot">

    MAYBE this is the best argument for a mandatory residency policy for all municipal workers, including (especially?) the police?

    Do the DOJ's "investigations" send the wrong message, emboldening the criminals, while demonizing and neutering the police?

    Yet, what is the proper manner of reacting to what many believe, are too many killings of black people, at the hand of police? 

    No matter how you slice it, "Houston", we've got a big problem in Black America.

    P.S. To the police of Baltimore or anywhere:

    Do you are so presumptuous to maintain that under no circumstance, are police to be held to accountability, rebuke or scorn, and that the people who you pledged to serve, are completely out of sorts, when conditions may lead them to be suspicious of the intent and actions of scores of your colleagues?

    The Exchange - Ocean's FIFA

    in Sports

    If you're going to be corrupt, at least do it big like a movie villain. And goodness, no one knows how to be corrupt in sports like FIFA. When the IRS calls an investigation "the World Cup of fraud" in a press conference, you know the dirty deeds were done at impressively high levels.

    On a Wednesday edition of The Exchange, Sumit and Jason chat will talk about the arrests and indictments of multiple high-level FIFA officials in Switzerland and the investigation here in the United States. From the comical to the unnerving to the maddening, they'll jump into it all as the possible extradition and further arrests are still happening. They will also throw a few thoughts out on the ongoing NBA Western Conference Finals and the conference finals in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

    Come through The Exchange in the chat room, on Twitter (@skd_thExchange and @asportsscribe) and on the phone lines at 347-202-0247.

    C.D. - The BSA Marilyn Mosby Indictment of the 6BPD; to Justice or "Rushtice"?

    in Current Events

    As-Salaam-Alaikum / God's Peace Upon You,

    First, I must correct myself. When we aired the first show on this topic, I said that Baltimore's State's Attorney indicted without Grand Jury, the 6 officers in the death of Freddie Gray.

    Now that the "ham sandwiches" will stand trial as charged, we need to further examine, what happened to Freddie Gray, before, during and after the altercation with the BPD, which led to his untimely death.

    Clearly, there are many in the black community who are pleased with things thus far, viewing this as a sort of vindication for the disappointment of there being no indictments in the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases. 

    On the other hand, the feeling has been expressed that Ms. Mosley levied the initial charges from a biased, unprincipled position, even suggesting a conflict of interest. 

    Is there reason to celebrate?

    Is "justice" finally to be served?

    In Waco, Texas, May 18th, at the Twin Peaks restaurant, a deadly shootout ensued, between two rival biker-gangs, the Banditos and Cossacks, in which 9 were killed and many, wounded.

    Amidst the reports of further planned attacks, there are some in the black community who point to how the press seems to set a contrasting tone in how each party is described. Absent in the description of the bikers, was the word "thug".

    How much time will the black community spend on this, in relation to that which we need to do, to repair ourselves and our communities, so that no one will ever have reason or purpose to so describe us?

    A Just Cause Coast2Coast - Holding Police Officers Accountable For Their Actions

    in US Government

    Lamont Banks, Lisa Stewart and Wayne Wright of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.  

    Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Lamont, Lisa and Wayne will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.

    Our Special Guest for tonight's show is Ex-Police Officer Cariol Holloman Horne, who was fired after 19 years on the force in Buffalo, New York for trying to stop a fellow cop from choking and punching a handcuffed black suspect in the face.

    A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
