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.
Tonight we will discuss the need of black leadership in the black community in order to reduce police brutality; The reason these problems are redundant is because we do not have representation that looks out for our better interest. Tokensim is and has gotten to be a sneaky, dinosaur method of failed leadership that is not effective in the year 2015. This was an experiment that has failed and is ineffective in the black community. We need strong, God-fearing, moral Black leadership that is looking out for our best interest.
A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted.
The importance and significance of justice can never be underestimated in the affairs of men. This is so because according to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice.”
Verily, justice occupies the highest place in the hierarchy of human values. Under the Old Testament particularly in the Book of Micah, the teachings of the prophets of Israel were summarized into one verse only: “to do justice; to show constant love and to live in humble fellowship with God.”
Actually, justice is synonymous with righteousness in the sense that what is righteous is just and what is just is righteous.
Indeed, it is important to be just for according to Confucius “heaven gives long and good life to the just.” His statement finds strong support in two biblical passages, to wit:
“Righteous men – men of integrity – will live in this land of ours. But God will snatch wicked men from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground.” (Proverbs 2:21-22)
“The Lord puts a curse on the house of wicked men and blesses the homes of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3:33

The American justice system appears to be falling apart. With the recent decisions on Eric Garner in New York, Michael Brown in Ferguson, Trayvon Martin in Florida, and Tyrone West in Baltimore, the nation is rapidly losing confidence in their justice system, and America's promise of democracy.
The Black community in particular is the target of racism, police brutality, and unjust and disproportionate incarceration. They are all at the center of the lack of confidence in the justice system.
To address these issues and what can be done about it Black Power Radio digs deep into the issues ....
Activist from across the country .. weigh in .. Minister Hashim Nzinga, National Chairman of the New Black Panther Party will teach ...live call in & question and answer, Hosterd by Chawn Casto Kweli, National Chief of Staff
I think we have gone beyond the question of whether Michael Brown was innocent or guilty. It's too late to control what Darren Wilson did but it is still disturbing that the whole truth will never come out. The grand jury hearing and testimony was behind closed doors. The cops will proect their own even at the 100% probability that they knew the town of Ferguson would act out in retritubion. Racial warfare is the highest price to pay agst. a system that will not correct the main dysfuntion of authority that keeps pervading the lives of young Black men. With the fans of the flame, another misinterpration of justice is a fine example of how far America is from comforting its citizens and bringing matters to light.

Black women represent 30 percent of all females incarcerated under state or federal jurisdiction. In 2011, black women were more than three times as likely as white women to be incarcerated in prison or jail.
During the last 20 years, there has been a profound change in the manner in which women are
treated within the criminal justice system. This has been a result of more expansive law enforcement
efforts, stiffer drug sentencing laws, and post-conviction barriers to reentry that uniquely affect
women. In response, the consideration of a gender-specific approach to studying criminal justice
policy has moved from a mere footnote to a full-fledged reform movement.
Listen LIVE as hosts Gerald E. Rose of New Order Human Rights Organization and Carla B. of EOTM Media Group provide a comprehensive game plan with the hopes of challenging every decision maker to be responsible for fairness and dignity towards others with measurable actions.
