With the events unfolding of events in Ferguson, MO after the shooting of unarmed Michael Brown plus the numerous other recent shootings and killings of unarmed African American males, what should be the Islamic reply to these killings?
There have been conversations of retaliation against police. Does Islam support such actions? Join us as we address this concern and other topics relating the how Islam instructs us regarding such sensitive community concerns.
Cities across America are battling the scourge of police officers run amok, some acting out of paranoia based on psychological programming to fear anyone with darker skin, some responding as the trained assassins they learned to become in the military, some just bullies who enjoy the feeling of power. Whatever the reason, decent people of good will have decided that these police murders must cease. We cannot have a civilized and safe society when the armed guards that are paid by our tax dollars to protect the people are in fact terrorizing them. Mothers For Justice United is an organization created by one mother who refuses to allow the murder of her son, Dontre Hamilton, to go unpunished. Today, Milwaukee resident Maria Hamilton tells her story with the hopes that other courageous mothers will join her efforts to rid police departments of terrorist police and bring those who have been guilty of murder to justice.
Legalize KILLING GAY PEOPLE. California Lawyer Pushes Ballot Measure.
A California lawyer proposed a ballot initiative to legalize the execution of gay and lesbian people in the state. The measure isn't expected to end up on the ballot, since it's clearly unconstitutional, but it's drawing attention to California's bizarre ballot initiative process. California's attorney general is likely required by law to clear the initiative. But the state's Supreme Court is likely to step in and stop the measure, particularly if the proposal gets enough signatures to qualify for the ballot.

Orange County attorney Matt McLaughlin paid the $200 filing fee on February 26 to submit the Sodomite Suppression Act to voters on November 2016.
The proposal has no chance of becoming law, since it's unconstitutional and would most likely never get approval from California voters, but it's drawn national attention because its provisions are so abhorrent and extreme.

Tonight I reviewed the upcoming movie from The National Geoprahpic Channel called Killing Jesus. After that I talked about and gave my opinion on the Indiana Religious Freedom Act. The law was read word for word and Indiana Governor Mike Pence's statement was read as well. Also included was a heart felt post from my daughter Brook encouraging people to do their research and not just believe everything you are told.
SWU – Community and Police
Keeping things in perspective – Policy regarding police procedures were put in place to keep police in check. Each state have different policies and procedures so please keep in mind that what maybe a policy in one state may not be in another state. Understanding some of the policies from law enforcement will bridge the gap in effectively communicating and understanding procedures that most people in the community may not know or do not understand. Who is truly programmed when it comes to police and the community? Let the discussion begin!!!
When deadly force is permitted?
How are policies determined and can it be changed?
What classifies a lethal weapon such as Weapons of Mass destruction?
Citizens on Patrol, why do some police department have citizen patrols? Can anyone be a part of citizen on patrol?
Is there training that people must go through to be a part of citizens on patrol?
How do police handle shooting someone? Do you feel it affects them mentally and emotionally?
Do you feel police are perceived as being unemotional/ or as programmed killers that only look at things in one way?
How do police handle mental health calls?
Supreme Court to hear new case about policies regarding Mental Health and how to deal with it. Your thoughts?
Wil & James discuss release of findings of report after investigation of the Philadelphia police department and its use of force policies or lack thereof.
What makes police officers and the government powerless? When the American people know their rights!
Police officers don't like to hear these words:
"Am I free to go?"
"I don't consent to a search."
"I'm going to remain silent."
You have rights during a traffic stop or any police encounter. Learn what your rights are and use them before you loose them!
1. Safety - When being pulled over pull over to a safe place, turn off your ignition, stay in the car and keep your hands on the steering wheel. At night turn on the interior light. Keep your license, registration and proof of insurance close by like in your "sun visor."
Immediately roll your window down all the way. Not half way, not an inch so you can speak through the crack. All the way. Among other things, it will show that you have nothing to hide.
Be courteous, stay calm, smile and don't complain. Show respect and say things like "sir and no sir." Never bad-mouth a police officer, stay in control of your words, body language and your emotions. Keep your hands where the police officer can see them. Never touch a police officer and never run away!
Emergency, Emergency, Emergency, Brothers stop killing Police now because # 1 its flat out wrong, and # 2, the media is reporting but also exploiting the racial stereotype of us African Americans Men as violent predators !
