    State Rep. Mary Flowers Examines Police Misconduct In Laquan McDonald Shooting

    in Women

    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

    Dismantling the Police State by Hugh Traulsen

    in Politics

    We are pleased that Hugh Traulsen has agreed to be our guest to discuss the troubling concept of converting our police force to an armed force.  Mr. Traulsen's motives are altruistic and he is simply trying to make the world a better place. His background has been varied and interesting. He was responsible for a whistle blower complaint which resulted in a high placed political figure being displaced and he accomplished that through lodging a complaint with the Wall Street Journal.


    To his credit, he has a poem in the Ronald Reagan Library, has received a letter from President Obama and is well known in numerous social and media circles.  Please feel free to call with your questions or comments 646-652-4620.  Look forward to hearing from you.

    OUTSIDE, INSIDE A POLICE STATE

    in Politics

    Program Summary: April 25, 2015


    @Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast." 


    In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.


    Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."


     Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
    In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking.  On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."

    7-31-2015 -Is America a Police State?

    in Politics Conservative

    Racial prejudice—and the systemic injustice that incorporates racial bias into our policing—is eating us up from the inside like a cancer. This is a national disgrace, and if we don't do something about it, we will all pay a terrible, terrible price.The conditions in America do not have to be identical to Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s for America to be a police state and a fascist dictatorship! If we examine the essence of a police state--destruction of Constitutional rights, genocidal murder of the working class by capitalist predators, deliberate criminal acts by government officials--then America in the twenty-first century is unquestionably a police state!.Tonight we will discuss The United Police States of America.

    Police Brutality: It's not all Black and White

    in US Government

    Some say, "what you don't know, can't hurt you." Do you know your rights? What should you do if you are ever stopped or approached by a law enforcement officer? Racial tension is growing in America largely because of the media coverage of black males being killed by white police officers. However, there is more to the story than us outsiders actually know...until now!


    Join host Tammy Gaitor and co-host Rodney Jordan as the Butterfly Evolution show welcomes Retired Police Chief Robert Moore for a "not to be missed" episode Monday, February 8, 2016. From the cotton fields of Mississippi to a presidential appointment by former United States president, Bill Clinton, Chief Moore served as the U.S. Marshal for the central district of Illinois. After a successful tenure, he returned to Jackson, Mississippi as the Chief of Police. Little did he know, he would have to fire an officer his first day on the job. "We know that there are bad cops patrolling your neighborhoods. We want them off of your streets just as bad as you do but you all are not helping us," he recently told a crowd of anxious young people at Howard University in Washington, D.C.


    Chief Robert Moore is the author of the new history book, "The President's Men: Black United States Marshals in America. He is also well known for his numerous published articles in police magazines covering a wide range of topics including, Strategies for Increasing Black Executives, Racial Profiling, History of the Minority Police Officers in Illinois State Police, Solving the crisis of Black Youth in America.


    Set your reminders now, you do not want to miss this show! 

  • A DISCUSSION OF NATIONAL POLICE DAY

    in Politics Conservative

    A Police Day” which takes place on SA, September 19, 2015. Here’s the deal, give every law enforcement officer a roll of Blue LifeSavers, as part of Police Supporter “Project Blue Life Saver.” The reason is because blue is the color most representative of police officers and they are literally "life savers". So, hand a blue role of LifeSavers (Pep O Mint) to any police officer, deputy sheriff, state trooper, Game Warden, FBI Special Agent or any publicly funded law enforcement officer with the power of arrest and tell him/her "THANK YOU." That's it! It would be nice if you can get media coverage, since any good press concerning law enforcement is great! Also, post images on FB Police Supporter and Police Talk Radio. We’ll take other callers with open discussion on any topic related to the police function. Our chat room is opened to interact with others from the Police Supporter and Police Talk Radio family. So, buckle-up and join us for an informative, entertaining and energetic Police Talk Radio ride.
