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.

Nearly 1,000 People Were Fatally Shot by Police in 2015- A total of 965 people fell dead this year after hearing the blast of a gun that belonged to a police officer. This statistic was gleaned from records of every fatal police shooting in the nation in 2015—a number that until now had never been calculated. The Washington Post concluded a year-long study on Sunday, publishing a comprehensive breakdown of the state of fatal police shootings, from ones involving both armed and unarmed victims. The report reads: We look back on the year of police took the law in their own bloody hands. & Weekend Box Office who won who lost. Check out the Best Authors Masterpieces

Today, LESMA is going to cover the ignorant statements of Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and any others who use their political voice to speak out against good, innocent officers- and the effects that those spoken words have on the morale of officers everywhere, the empowerment that they give to people who look to do harm, and the effect they have on society in general.
And I'm positive that David is going to throw in his absolute disdain for the idiots who vote for these people, as well as his disdain for anyone who uses their political voice to spread hatred. That alone will be quite entertaining.

The outrage over police shootings of unarmed citizens has reached explosion level. In cities across the country, citizens have protested, sat in, attended meetings, held press conferences, boycotted, and threatened to vote officials out of office. It seems that nothing works. Officers have run amuck. We pay salaries to people who kill our loved ones with seeming impunity. What will it take to make it stop? Irate citizens faced members of the police board and the interim Police Superintendent to express their distrust, anger and frustration at the police and to demand that the abusive officers be fired. What legal grounds to citizens have to stop police abuse? Or will new tactics be required to remove killers from patrolling the streets? Chicago activist Queen Sister, head of It Takes A Village, shares her perspective. Warren Houston, founder of The People's Law Study Group and host of Know Thyself Radio offers legal tactics citizens can use that can make a big difference.
In light of recent events in Cleveland , Ohio, what does that say about training, community engagement, police practices and system communication ?
