Demonstrations, protests, media attention, the problem of police brutality has recently taken prominence in our society. Anger, sadness and fear are some of the overwhelming emotions. How are the children? Do they understand what is happening? How do we appropriately discuss this difficult topics with our children?
Please join me today at 6:30pm on BlogTalkRadio for a discussion on these matters.
My guest will be Gina Parker Collins, founder of RIISE, Inc, mother, advocate and change agent.

Remember when the Khmer Rouge ordered people out of the cities of Cambodia and then went about systematically killing leaders of the country and their families. The leader of the Khmer Rouge, Pol Pot, killed approximately 1.7 million people. Adolf Hitler killed over 6 million Jews, Gypsies and gay people. The Holocaust will be forever etched in the minds of all mankind. For the most part the world community stood back and let this happen.
Mankind is about to watch ISIS, or the Islamic Stat,e commit genocide on the people of Iraq. The leader of ISIS has ordered the mutilation of women’s genitals in the city of Mosul. ISIS demands that people convert to Islam or be killed; most flee for their lives. The Islamic State kills and crucifies publicly some of its victims. ISIS, as it was called before becoming the Islamic State, was connected to al Qaida, then was rejected by al-Qaida for being to violent
Amidst the violent persecution inflicted on Christians in Iraq, many pleas for help in Syria have gone unheard. Radical Islamic extremists have cut water and electricity from Christian communities. Families are unable to flee their homes to find safer shelter. Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, has been all but emptied of Christians and other religious minorities fleeing this extreme persecution. Those that remain are often too sick, weak, or poor to leave. As this violence continues, Christians throughout the Middle East and the world are watching and wondering, who will step in and stop this Christian persecution?
The epidemic is on going. Sadly because our news media only covers a narrative that suits there current frame other misdeeds by police go unreported or marginally reported. Bobby Rodrigo, host of Coffee Party Radio Show "I take Liberty with my Coffee" brought this story to me. I almost blew my top. How did I miss it. I told Bobby that I would blog the story. The blog post "The execution of this White brother, David Hooks, by police need coverage too" is getting very good coverage.
Today we are doing a combined show. We will start "Politics Done Right w/Egberto Willies" for the first hour and then merge into "I take Liberty with my Coffee w/Bobby Rodrigo." Bobby will be doing the show directly from Dublin, Georgia where he will be attending the "Rally For Justice For David Hooks."

Are you fighting in front of your children? They're like sponges taking it all in. Will your child become an abuser because they mimicked you? You are responsible for that happening. You might not be physically killing your child when they witness the abuse, but you are killing their spirit and causing them to experience trauma. The cycle repeats itself.
How is Domestic Violence responsible for taking money out of your pocket? You pay when the ambulance is called and the victim has no insurance. You pay for the shelters the victim and their child go to because they are abused. Think about it.
Why are more & more police officers becoming murderers hidden behind police uniforms? Why aren't these political leaders nationwide ignoring this SERIOUS problem? Why are the National Guards that consist of our family members and dear friends being used against us when we demand these senseless murders to cease? It seems like these police officers are mainly targeting "black men" although we know men of other races and nationalities [especially the Hispanic men] are being singled out & targeted. Zimmerman completely disobeied the instructions of the dispatch policer officer to NOT follow Trayvon, but he ignore the order causing an unnecessary comfortation with Trayvon. Zimmerman ASSUMED he would be able to over power Trayvon because he's much larger; however, when Trayvon was whooping Zimmerman's butt. Zimmerman shoot & kills Trayvon in cold blood. Our tax dollars are being wasted by putting Zimmerman in protective custody. We shouldn't be funding the protection of a malicious killer. If Zimmerman truly felt his life was in danger at the moment & time he and Trayvon were in a physical fight, then Zimmerman shouldn't have NEVER EVER followed Trayvon. Zimmerman's disobedience to the law put him in that situation NOT Trayvon.
Michael Brown was INTENTIONALLY targeted because he is a young black man. Therefore, these bullies in police uniforms decided to confront him harassing him although he wasn't violating ANY laws at the time they approached him. Now, this young man is dead due to murderers in police uniforms.
Eric Gardner has a lengthy criminal history according the news reports and many police officers purposely target "black men" particularly who have such record to try to justify their reasonings for harassing & killing them.
.Cops After Death Of Gregory Towns Jr. While In Custody
ATLANTA (AP) -- The family of a man who died after Atlanta-area police used stun guns on him has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the former officers and the city, the family's lawyer said.
The lawsuit, which was filed in Fulton County Superior Court, says East Point police officers used their stun guns as many as 13 times on Gregory Towns Jr. while he was handcuffed. The lawsuit claims former police sergeant Marcus Eberhart and former corporal Howard Weems used excessive force in the April 11 incident.
"It's just heinous," attorney Chris Stewart told The Associated Press in a phone interview Thursday. "This isn't one of those cases where he punched an officer and they had to Taser him to calm him down."
The lawsuit comes amid increased attention on police use of force in the wake of the fatal shooting in of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Following that shooting, local police in Ferguson donned riot gear and fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters who refused to disperse and, at times, broke into nearby businesses.
While many police officers use their authority appropriately, there are some who view any act of disobedience as a call for extreme action, Stewart said.
"In our case, it wasn't about color, obviously, because the officers were black," Stewart said. "It was about power. He didn't walk when they said walk. He didn't stand when they said stand. And he didn't move fast enough when they said move."
We are pre-empting our regularly-scheduled show tonight to talk about the killing of Michael Brown, the young African American man killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. I'm tired of watching our young men killed -- unjustified - by white police officers. I have a seven year-old son and I'm concerned for him. Let's talk about this situation; more importantly,let's fight back. Amirah and I -- as always -- PROMISE to keep it Real, Relevant, and Raw!!

SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Tamir Rice was a 12-yr-old boy brandishing a toy gun in an empty playground in Cleveland, Ohio when 911 was called. Although there is nothing threatening about the boy's physical appearanace, nor was there any signs of threatening behavior wither before or after the police arrived, Tamir was almost instantaneously shot to death when they arrived. on the other hand, Joseph Houseman, a 63-year-old Caucasian male who was drunk, disorderly and waving both a real machine gun as well as directing the police toward his genitals was not apprehended or penalized for his actions. Additionally, young Tamir's father's history of domestic violence and his movement toward his toy gun was mentioned in the police's attempts to justify murdering the pre-teen while the media branded the older intoxicated man a herodefending his right to bear arms. Many other cases involving blatant police infractions against the public, despite their race, will be touched on tonight. The System of American police forces ' mentality toward Black suspects as opposed to their White counterparts remains clear, as is the need for Black America to become a system of self-preserving mentality. Join in tonight at 347-327-9967 at 10:30 pm with your thoughts.
The country been engaged in peaceful protest for the injustice of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Police brutality is happening so much in this nation to the point it's a everyday occurence. Our elected officials stay quiet while the country is angry and want change in police culture. Will the protest work? Will we see change with police?
