Tonight we will continue to discuss why the Criminal Justice System is not effective here in Amerika.
Tonight we will discuss the Criminal Justice System and why it is not working for black people. We will also discuss a case here in Inkster, Michigan concerning the beating of a 57yo African American Male below:
Fighting back tears, a Detroit man and longtime auto worker with no criminal history, described how Inkster police officers dragged him from his car one night in January, choked him, beat him and Tasered him during a traffic stop that was caught on patrol car video.
"He was beating me upside the head," Floyd Dent, 57, told a horde of reporters and TV crews during a press conference at his attorney's office Wednesday afternoon, as tears trickled his cheeks. "I was trying to protect my face with my right arm. I heard one of them say, 'tase the M...F. '"
The Jan. 28 incident was caught on police video cameras and is making national news. It shows Inkster police pulling over Dent in his 2011 tan Cadillac near South River Park Drive and Inkster Drive shortly before 10 p.m. The two officers approach with their guns drawn. As Dent opens the door, they pull him out and shove him to the ground. Dent does not appear in the video to be resisting arrest.
Join me for a Cultural Conversation with Harold Michael Harvey, author of the new book, Justice in the Round. Harvey will give his perspective on the country’s racial dynamics at play in the American Jury System.
Harvey is the author of the critically acclaimed legal thriller, Paper Puzzle and author or a new book, Justice in the Round. Harvey formed the Cascade Publishing House to publish his works and the works of other authors who feel more comfortable in a small publishing house.
Harold Michael Harvey is an American award winning journalist, former lawyer, political pundit, novelist, essayist and publisher. He earned a degree in Political Science from Tuskegee Institute and a Juris Doctorate degree from Atlanta Law School. Harvey was honored for “Outstanding Work in Newspaper Journalism,” in 1976 by the National Newspaper Publishers Association. The Gate City Bar Association bestowed upon him their prestigious R. E. Thomas Civil Rights Award in 1996 after Harvey represented over 180 college students arrested in the City of Atlanta during a black college spring break ritual known as “Freaknic.”

At this writing, I've not gone into great detail on Barack Obama's criminal justice system "reforms", as they apply to the "rights" of ex-felons, as they attempt to re-fold into civic life.
As I understand, there is much ado, regarding disclosures on job applications, which arguably, has precluded former inmates' ability to obtain an honest job, and be able to create distance between their past violations and present life-circumstances.
In this, one can argue that this very policy, as it severely limits one's ability to function in his or her "new" society, puts such persons in a situation where a return to crime is inevitable, so of course, questions arise as to the very purpose of incarceration, and the perception that these long-standing policies, including the loss of the privilege to vote, were at their inception, targeted at black Americans.
How can these policies be justified, if one has "paid their debt to society"?
Indeed, there are many people, ex-felons, given a chance to more forward, who have indeed proven themselves worthy of respect, honor and being seen as living examples of Allah's / God's redemption.
On the other hand, what about their victims; When and how are they "paid"?
I will research this issue in more depth, so we will have a most meaningful:
How do you feel about The Justice System and how it’s leveled against our children? This doesn’t just apply to our children who are teens, this applies to all of our children from preschoolers to college and beyond. The school-to-prison pipeline is real, and more and more of our children are being systematically pushed into it.
In recent years black children have been escorted out of class by police for wearing the wrong shoes at school and upervised for holding up three fingers in a photo. As seen in the cases of Florida teen Kiera Wilmot and Texas teen Ahmad Mohamad, disciplinary action and law enforcement involvement might happen when black kids choose to demonstrate their scientific knowledge. Indeed, black students are three times more likely than their white peers to be suspended, according to data from the U.S Department of Education office of Civil Rights.
Dr. David Oualaalou joins us again for our Thursday night discussion. This time, we get into our US Justice system and dig into things a little deeper. Is it working? Are we seeing better results? What about the Death penalty? I know I've got my own ideas about this topic, but we'll hear what Dr. Oualaalou has to say. I do believe in the concept of paying time for doing crime, especially for hardened criminals who assault others. Those who cross the line and take the life of another...well, I think they should never be allowed to see daylight again, and Lethal Injection would save the taxpayers a TON of money to house these people.
Voices Injustice is looking at an area very sensitive to our justice system, at least here in America - Celebrities who killed their spouses.....How many rich celebrities were able to buy their way out of punishment for this heinous crime and how is it that money controls our society, rather than any sense of balanced justice for all human beings? This is where the true injustice of our human society comes through. We are all consumed with who is dating who? Who is cheating on who? Who is divorcing who? However, there is a much more dangerous edge to the Who is Who; Celebrities who killed because of jealousy, power, dominance, control!!!!
Join Trish, Sunday Nov 8th, beginning at 7pm eastern time as we have some fun in snooping about the celebrities, but we are looking at the dark side of the person who allows the need for power, their ego, their needs to send them into a rage that ended up in murder. I'm certain you have some type of Celebrity who has been charged with a type of Family Offense or Brutal Crime; did they get away with it? Was the punishment equal to what someone without money and power would have gotten? Money is how you survive in prison, its how we survive in the world; sadly its also what feeds the harmful drive of dominance or more deserving of your service.

The State's Attorrney is the one who presents the case against the person accused of a crime. Across the country, corrupt police have joined with corrupt attorneys and corrupt judges to railroad innocent people into prison and feed a system that creates jobs for some while providing slave labor for big business. Can honest leadership weed out corruption throughout the system? Today's guest, Attorney Donna More, candidate for Cook County States Attorney, explains what motivated her to run. Later we'll be joined by Shawn Whirl, tortured by police into making a false confession for a murder he did not commit and forced to spend 25 years in prison, until he was recently released as a result of efforts by The Innocence Project, attorneys and law students working to free thosewrongfully convicted of crimes. He'll share his story of resilience and the challenges of re-entering society.
