'I can't breathe!'
He was a 43-year-old married father of six. His alleged crime: Selling "loose," untaxed cigarettes on a Staten Island street corner. He was tackled by a gaggle of police officers, including one who subdued him for agonizing seconds with a chokehold, a move that the New York police department had outlawed because of its propensity for causing severe injury and death. The entire encounter was captured clearly on video. After Eric Garner did indeed perish in the takedown, a medical examiner classified his death "a homicide."
Garner's last words were, "I can't breathe!"
Today, a grand jury on Staten Island gave us the dull surprise of no indictment for the officer who killed Garner. It raises so many questions. Given the fact that a high-quality video of this killing did not yield an indictment, will the expected rise in the use of police body cameras (including in Philadelphia) make a difference? Can a grand jury process run by prosecutors who work hand-in-glove with the cops on the beat ever produce justice when those officers behave unlawfully? When will Americans accept there are two justice systems in the country -- one for the powerful, one for the powerless -- and when will something be done?
Join us this week as we discuss all of the hot topics in the world of sports, including the "I Can't Breathe" T-shirt movement in support of Eric Garner and others who have fallen victim to police brutality in this country.
We'll talk with Fred Perdue of CollegeFootballExtra.com to get his thoughts on the college football playoff field, the Heisman Trophy finalists, and "The U part 2" 30 for 30 documentary that will air this Saturday immediately following the Heisman Trophy presentation.
We'll also discuss the murder-suicide witnessed by the champ, the dumpster fire that is Washington football at the moment, Cam Newton's car accident, and a WHOLE LOT more!
"This portion of the revolution will not be televised, but EVERYBODY can listen."

For as long as we are alive, I'm sure there is going to be something to TALK about. Ebony Empress asks the question, and we will do everything we can to answer her, OR as some do, confront and oppose. And hear this - stories indicate 13 women have accused LEGENDARY BILL COSBY of sexual misconduct. New York has its first EBOLA case, I wonder when we'll stop hearing about EBOLA, like we don't hear about heart attacks, and strokes, CANCER CANCER, are we alarmed about those things killing us more than EBOLA? 347-205-9366. Thank you for joining, and helping us GROW at the JKN.
It is God's desire to speak to ALL us through dreams and visions. Have a relationship with Him will help us hear Him more, clearer and more frequently.. Act2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
So once we position ourselves to hear from Him we will know what decisions to make in life. We will have less problems and issues to deal with... Remember God is our creator, we all are created for a purpose.... Just let Him tell us what our purpose is.
There is truly an art to forgiveness. You said you forgave him or her...But, did you? How do you get past the hurt and pain of the offense? Many of us have been lied to, cheated on, disrespected and sometimes worse. Often times we still maintain the relationships with those who may have violated our trust. Every time we look at them, we are reminded of it. Tune in to find out how to truly forgive and move on... or move out!
Most people seeking relationships are looking for true and lasting love. They want to find that special person who will meet their deepest expectations while loving them equally in return. When they try over and over, and can’t seem to find what they are looking for, they continue to work on self-improvement and try harder to understand the moving earthquake that is the dating playing field.
On the other end of the rainbow are those people who seem to easily find partners who want to be in committed relationships with them. They don’t seem to have to try very hard to attract partners they want. We usually think of them as the “beautiful people” whom everyone agrees are valuable. In fact, most of them are very typical people in many ways. However, they do have some unique observablepersonality characteristics and behaviors that set them apart. They come across as independent, contained, confident, and un-needy.
