So what happens when you believe that your civil rights have been violated by the LAPD or the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department? If you believe that you have been the victim of abuse by law enforcement than you have the right to report the incident and to file a lawsuit against the law enforcement agency, but the entire process can be a nightmare for individuals who do not understand the legal process of making a Government claim and therefore many incidents of police misconduct and abuse go unreported or fall into the cracks because there are very strict legal guidelines which must be followed along with a very narrow widow of time to file your grievance or lawsuit known as the “statute of limitation.” A statute of limitations is the deadline for filing a lawsuit. Most lawsuits MUST be filed within a certain amount of time. In general, once the statute of limitations on a case “runs out,” the legal claim is not valid any longer. In most cases, the victim of police abuse only has 6 months to file a claim against the government.
What is a Government Tort Claim? When a representative of the State of California or LA government is negligent and results in injury, there is a significant list of requirements that must be met and regulations that must be followed. There is a statute of limitations that further inhibits ability to file and win suits.
Join Carlos Montenegro to discuss the “pros & cons” of filing a Government claim and how to successfully file a personal injury claim against the City or County of Los Angeles for police misconduct.

What are the consequences when public servants, employed by the taxpayers, violate the public's trust? The city of Chicago erupted in protest over the Thanksgiving weekend after the release of the dashcam video graphically showing the killing of 17 year old Laquan McDonald by police officer Jason Van Dyke in 2014. For an entire year, this video has been withheld, and with its court ordered release came a series of questions as to who was involved in the coverup. Young Laquan, a ward of the State, should have received more care, support, and intervention, it seems, rather than to be shot to death for carrying a knife with which he allegedly was puncturing car tires. Illinois State Representative Mary Flowers joins us today to discuss the many levels of official misconduct that need to be addressed by elected officials as well as the voting public, in holding those accountable who violate the public trust. Can new laws and new regulations protect citizens from police abuse? Should the entire police force be scrapped and all forced to re-apply? Should mandatory psychological exams be instituted before an officer is hired? How do we weed out those who have already racked up complaints for excessive force, before they kill someone else
All across the United States there have been multiple assaults and deaths involving law enforcement that brings to question whether police officers are handling these situations properly before resulting to deadly force. It has been said that these issues have been going on for years, but because of multiple recent deadly incidents involving law enforcement, the conversation has grown and some situations has resulted in unpeaceful protests and riots. Whether it's the Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Darrin Manning, Tanisha Anderson or Tamir Rice incident. Only one of these incidents did not result in death, but it did result in a long term disadvantage. What should we as citizens know about how law enforcement should properly handle certain situations? Also, how do we move properly move on from these incidents without making them worse? Tune in as Mr. Yancey is joined live in the studio by Joddy Eric Matthews from Madwerkz Studios, on the phone by Bishop Maye of Pilgrim Church of Christ and head of the Midwestern district of PICO, and more as we discuss these incidents and where do we go from here.

It seems that lately the police have been able to get away with murder. Literally. There seems to be little that is being done to hold police officers accountable for their actions. From minor incidents like the practice of using their emergency lights to run red lights to killing of our pets to the blatant murder of our citizens. Over the past several years we have seen many examples of police brutality and murders justified by those tasked with investigating these crimes. But, as we know, when the police investigate themselves, they always find a way to call the misbehavior justified.
Tonight, Loki and Robert will discuss this trend in police behavior and offer some solutions to remedy this situation.
Join us tonight as we once again address an extremely sensitive topic of Police brutality and Race in America. As the cries of injustice are heard LOUDLY all around the globe one question remains. WHEN will it finally end? When will those we trust with our safety and hold to a HIGHER standard be made to be held accountable for THEIR actions? Is truth and justice only for the “few” and underrepresented? From a possible lynching in Mississippi to mass police brutality around the country this is for certain. THE PEOPLE are becoming fed up. Tonight we will open up an honest, heartfelt but cut to the chase discussion about race and the police in America. Join us as both white and black everyone in between weighs in with their honest thoughts about this hot button issue. And at 9pm join us for a countdown leading up to what some are calling a fight of the Ages, Mayweather vs Pacquiao. Can and will this showdown be one to remember? Will it live up to all the hype? Chime in on lets hear your thoughts on this historical match up!! www.realtalkallthetime.com The call in is 347-637-3010. 7:30pm Tuesday Night April 28th!!
For now, there’s not much we can do about police brutality against our children of color. We post our social media memes, share news stories, watch footage and talk about how horrible the images are among ourselves. Some of us even put boots to the ground and march to the offices of our policymakers to advocate for change.
But in the meantime, it’s safe to say that nothing’s going to change immediately. The only two real-time things we can do are talk to our black youth and be an eyewitness — even to their own experience, according to a counselor and a former police officer turned anti-police brutality advocate.
Concerned with how my 10- and 12-year-olds are taking in all the misconduct and brutality cases, and senseless killings of black men, I wonder how they would react if put into a similar situation. Really, what should they do if/when they actually come in contact with a police officer; whether they’ve done something wrong, are witnessing a crime or want to help defend a friend or family member?
What do you say if a cop pulls you over and asks to search your car? What if he gets up in your face and uses a racial slur? What if there’s a roach in the ashtray? And what if your hot-headed teenage son is at the wheel?
More people than ever are getting arrested—usually for petty offenses against laws that rarely used to be enforced. And because arrest information is so easily available via the Internet, just one little arrest can disqualify you from jobs, financing, and education.
Join us in welcoming Dale Carson, an ex-cop, to the Sound Health Options Radio show, as he shares his experiences and ideas of how we can PROTECT ourselves against the authorities!
Dale joins us again to discuss his Book: 'Arrest-Proof Yourself' as well as his current thoughts on our safety in dealing with Police and the legal system.
