    Police Brutality

    in Blogs

    With the recent riots in Baltimore it would not be right not to discuss this issue of police brutality. For years black men have felt that the police have mistreated them and even killed them based on the color of their skin. With the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Walter Scott, Freddy Gray and countless others, has brought outrage amoung many Americans. They fell that the system designed to protect them is acutally out to kill them. This Thursday at 8:00 PM live on As Real As It Gets Radio Show join my co-hosts Amber (AJ) Jones, Kristin (K'Mecca) Zuller and I as we discuss this topic.

    Who will Police the Police? America Police problems continue.

    in Radio

    It has become a broken record. I thought my ancestors and those that have came before me suffered enough but, the suffering continues. You seen the video of police officer Michael Blagger shooting the Walter Scott. The deaths of black men at the hands of police officers keep adding up. All the marching in the world hasn't changed enough has it? What america needs is a change in the way these police officers are being trained. Otherwise this volcano will begin to errupt soon or, The aftermath that will follow will be monumental. What is clear is that the police are brainwashed like much of the majority race and media. Why is it so acceptable that Black men to be killed?A Texas Bill will make recording police illegal unfreaking real!!!.

    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."
