Tonight is an introduction to next week's show Legalized Murder. Next week I will have as my guest a Viet Nam Combat War Veteran I met recently. WE were discussing the U.S. re-engagement of military forces in Iraq. And he said, yeah, more legalized murder. So tonight I am going to look at the philosophy of war and the progression from war to defense and prepare the way for me to discuss war as legalized murder with an actual combat war veteran.
In the midst of media sensationalism and propaganda we can not hide the fact that we are losing too many young lives in the street. Mothers and fathers are wearing too many black outfits at funerals that should have never taken place. From Charlotte to California murder is as common as a cold. This afternnon at 6pm join Zion; the minister of information, and his in studio guest; motivational therapist Titus Broom, as they step inside the men's room.
Tonight's Politics: Second Murder. Ferguson. Unrest. Guests include writer/singer John Milton Wesley (MD), DeeAnna Lopes (TX), and LaQuay Juel (NJ) of Obsidian News. National panel discusses Ferguson and the second murder. Panel discusses history of race relations in the US.
Ferguson is a city of 21,000 residents. This little city is 67% black 28% white, and others. On August 9, 2014 a young man, preparing to enter college on Monday August 12, never made it past August 9. This young man was killed by a police officer. The account given by the officer is that the young man was ordered to not walk in the street. It is said by the officer the young man refused to move to the sidewalk; words were exchanged, the young many reached into the patrol car to grap the officer and the office shot to protect himself. Based on the officers statement via police chief, the young man proceeded to run away, and the officer chased the boy and shot him several more times. The young man then lay dead, for 4 hours in the very street the officer attempted to prevent him from walking in. The reason for the now body of the young man to lay in the hot August street for 4 hours is known only to the police officers of the small town of 21,000 residents. The officer, Darren Wilson, has not been arrested, and no other person has been arrested. A person walking in the middle of a street is killed while running away from an officer, and the officer remains free, on paid leave. What does the death of a person mean to a city so small? To the majority of the people, the death is a tramatic experience and they want justice for the death of the young man. Mike Brown, who is not longer with us. To a few choice people the death of the young man, a black man, means peace has been disturbed in their small city and the few does not want the eyes of the world on their small city watching angry demonstrators.
I find something strange going on in Ferguson Missiouri. I will talk about some concerns in todays shows. Any listeners from Ferguson who know something about the voting there, please call in and let's talk about voting statistics in Ferguson Missiouri.
The Murder of Michael Brown & Eric Garner: Are the Police Taliban, or Al Qaeda? Who do you fear most?
In the 1960's it was the act of a MARCH, PROTEST, BOYCOTT AND ECONOMIC CHALLENGES that brought CHANGES
This episode will discuss the murder of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Eric Garner was murdered for voicing his concern about being targeted by police and for an alleged prior possession of untaxed cigarettes, which led to a death sentence. Michael Brown was murdered allegedly with his hands in the air and also while unarmed. He was shot six times with a fatal bullet to the 18 year old head. We will discuss the ongoing problems associated with untrained police officers who encounter unarmed people and police citizen encounters in America. Garner wanted to know why he was being harassed and he suffered a life sentence for merely questioning police officers and why are Americans under attack by their local police who are commissioned to protect and serve the community. However, it appears that local police departments are armed military forces who target their communities like terrorist. Who do you fear the Taliban, Al Qaeda or your local police? A side bar, in Georgia a bomb was thrown threw a window of a home occupied by a family to enforce a search warrant. A child suffered severe injuries!
We will also cover why 12 NYPD officers were required to respond to the home of a Brooklyn grandmother and force her from her home and the Protest against the Shooting death of an unarmed teen in Ferguson Missouri

We are all partly to blame for what is happening in Ferguson, MO. Each time we stood by and watched a police officer kill an innocent person and we did nothing has played a roll in the frustration of the protestors in Ferguson. Each time we watched a grand jury come back and "no bill" an officer after he/she killed an innocent person and we did nothing has played a roll in the frustration of the protestors of Ferguson. So, today we all have a responsibility to get laws on the books that hold police officers accountable for overkill shots, using excessive force, using harassment techniques on citizens who speak out against police brutality, more transparency in there investigations, independent organizations to oversee police shootings and so much more.
Last week we discussed the topic: "Mike Brown's Murder Catalyst for Unrest in Ferguson, Part I attached in the link to that show. Please join us August 22, 2014 from 8-10pm CST/9-11pm EST as we will bring you part II of this discussion. If you would like to chime in on this topic Friday night call in and let your voice be heard @ (347 850-8390.

"To serve and protect"
Really? All I seem to hear about these days are the stories of Death at the hands of those we count on to protect and serve us. Just the other day, a young man who was enrolled in College and prepared to start his first classes on 08/11/2014, was shot and killed by a Police Officer in St. Louis, Mo.; alegedly for just walking in the street. THIS MUST STOP!
On this week's show, real people will be sharing real and personal stories of Police Abuse, Brutality, Shootings and Murder. We will be counting how many Police Shootings and Murders that are actually occuring, on a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily basis. We will look at the circumstances surrounding each and also the whos, whens, wheres and the whys... And we are hoping to have actual Police Officers sharing their own personal perspectives, as well.
In the end, we will be discussing what to do about it. Many have decided to riot. Is this the solution? If not, then what can we, as individuals, do to help stop the senseless killings.
This will be an AMAZING show! Don't miss it! This Sunday, August 17th, at 7:00 PM, E.S.T., just click this link or dial 818-739-8909 to listen by phone, from anywhere.
