"I can't breathe"
Weeks before the shooting death of Michael Brown this August in Ferguson, Missouri, the death of Eric Garner set off its own wave of protests. The father of six died in July while being suspected of selling illegal cigarettes in Staten Island, after a police chokehold rendered him unable to breathe.
The cop, Pantaleo, who held Eric Garner in the chokehold that killed him has been sued three times for allegedly violating the constitutional rights of other blacks he and fellow cops arrested.
Unlike Mike Brown's death, Garner's death has harrowing digital footprints. His attempted arrest and struggle for air were captured on a widely-disseminated video. His final words were “I can’t breathe.”
Besides the banned chokehold used by the cop, throwing a beefy arm around his neck, there was lethal danger in the way Mr. Garner was subdued — on his stomach, with a pile of cops on his back.
“positional asphyxia” quoted the Department’s guidelines on preventing deaths in custody.
The New York medical examiner’s office ruled Mr. Garner’s death a homicide, it cited “compression of neck (choke hold), compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police.” The pressure prevents the diaphragm from going up and down, and he can’t inhale and exhale.”
Which is exactly what Mr. Garner was trying to tell the officers who were on top of him when he said "I can't breathe"
On Wednesday, a grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the plainclothes NYPD officer who was making the arrest.

Weeks before the shooting death of Michael Brown this August in Ferguson, Missouri, the death of Eric Garner set off its own wave of protests. The father of six died in July while being arrested for selling illegal cigarettes in Staten Island, after a police chokehold rendered him unable to breathe.
On Wednesday, a grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the plainclothes NYPD officer who was making the arrest.
There are plenty of differences between the cases of Garner and Brown, but one particular contrast remains salient: There was no footage of Michael Brown's death, only eyewitness accounts and conjecture, leaving minds to imagine a standoff between an officer and a civilian, a standoff that ended with the image of Brown lying dead in the street for over four hours.
Garner's death has harrowing digital footprints. His attempted arrest and struggle for air were captured on a widely-disseminated video. His final words were “I can’t breathe.”
In the aftermath of the verdict, many will likely point to the fact that the coroner's report ruled Garner's death a homicide, and that chokeholds are expressly forbidden by the NYPD.

They put us in separate parcels, and examined us attentively. They also made us jump, and pointed to the land, signifying we were to go there. We thought by this, we should be eaten by these ugly men, as they appeared to us; and, when soon after we were all put down under the deck again, there was much dread and trembling among us, and nothing but bitter cries to be heard all the night from these apprehensions, insomuch, that at last the white people got some old slaves from the land to pacify us. They told us we were not to be eaten, but to work, and were soon to go on land, where we should see many of our country people. This report eased us much. And sure enough, soon after we were landed, there came to us Africans of all languages.

“Death at the polls, and free from federal interference” an era which depicted the violence that characterized elections in the post-Reconstruction South. Watch eductional history rap video!
The Battle of Liberty Place on September 14, 1874 was an attempted insurrection by the Minority, Crescent City White League against the legal Bi-racial Reconstruction Elected state government in New Orleans. The League, made up of Confederate veterans, fought and won against the racially integrated Metropolitan Police and state militia. They held the state house, armory and downtown for three days until federal troops arrived to restore the black elected government
The uprising of white Democrats against the biracial Republican administration that ruled Louisiana after the Civil War raged through the downtown streets and ended with 32 dead on both sides. Within few years the whites here, and throughout most of the South, regained power and held it for almost a century.

The Leslie Arnold Show features AKATHA, the Ancient Science of Sahaji. Sahaji is the original derivation as the one Higher Sanskrit word for the English phrases Soul or Spirit Travel, Out-of-Body Experience (OBE), Soul movement, etc. Practicing Sahaji will gain one the SRAOSHA (Spirit) Mastery level of their life as Leslie has also achieved. Further, in Sahaji, initially before mastery within as Soul, one passes into higher levels of consciousness towards this mastery and beyond. At the point of achieving the fifth dimension inwardly traveling through the first four lower planes, one achieves the first goal of AKATHA. That major goal is Self-Realization, the plane of liberation as Soul, the Light and Sound within one. This Sound Current, sometimes called the "SRAOSHA Life Stream," is very uplifting and heard as a high electrical pitch. This high pitch has one now ecstatically experiencing and realizing perhaps for the first time in the life, the experience as Soul, the essence of man. On the show, Leslie interviews the leader of AKATHA, The Mahaji, the 973rd Living SRAOSHA Master. This foremost evolved human is the highest central master in the universe of the longest unbroken line of Spiritual Masters called The Order of the Vairagi. He teaches the way of AKATHA to the ready Soul who may then take the next step onto the path. The membership is free along with all materials and seminars whilst contributions and donations are not accepted. Without charging shows the motive is pure by the path of AKATHA to give out freely the purest message of Sahaji. No thought can be then that the Living Master is just out to make a living from his teaching. Therefore, please come and join us in our pure motive for a joyfully inspirational vibrationally uplilfting thirty minute experience. Feel the essense of SRAOSHA perhaps for the first time in this life.

Tonight at 8pm ET Audio Book, Listen to A Reading of Frederick Douglass' Autobiography ~ Mr. Douglass shares his Courageous Escape on The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryBlog.com

"It was the custom in the State of Maryland to require the free colored people to have what were called free papers. These instruments they were required to renew very often, and by charging a fee for this writing, considerable sums from time to time were collected by the State. In these papers the name, age, color, height, and form of the freeman were described, together with any scars or other marks upon his person which could assist in his identification. This device in some measure defeated itself-since more than one man could be found to answer the same general description. Hence many slaves could escape by personating the owner of one set of papers; and this was often done as follows: A slave, nearly or sufficiently answering the description set forth in the papers, would borrow or hire them them till by means of them he could escape to a free State, and then, by mail or otherwise, would return them to the owner. The operation was a hazardous one for the lender as well as for the borrower. A failure on the part of the fugitive to send back the papers would imperil his benefactor, and the discovery of the papers in possession of the wrong man would imperil both the fugitive and his friend."
