World Human Rights Day 2013 has special significance in this 20th anniversary year of the establishment of the mandate of the U.N. Proclamation for Human Rights. On December 10, 2013 various Southern Christian Leadership Conference members, civil rights activist and human rights organizations will join hundreds of demonstrators at a scheduled peace vigil outside the Clarendon County Courthouse, in Manning South Carolina where George Stinney Jr. The youngest Person Executed in U.S. History was originally sentenced to death. Their effort is to underscore in tone-one single message “that, as a global community, it’s time to come together and  support justice for George Stinney Jr,” said Gregg L Greer a S.C.L.C/ Freedom First Member, and the Rally Organizer.

George Stinney Jr. just prir to his execution.

This 5’1, 95-lb. African-American boy was sent to the electric chair for allegedly killing two young white girls on Friday, March 24, 1944. The day authorities said 11-year-old Betty June Binnicker and Mary Emma Thames, 8, went missing and were murdered. Their bodies were found underwater in a creek the next morning. By midday, George Stinney had been arrested. So literally George Stinney Jr. was given a tax commissioner as a defense lawyer. The confession of George Stinney, Jr. was never recorded in police files. Detectives offered the boy ice cream to confess.  Stinney was convicted and sentenced in one day of court. The boy faced his sentence without family who was forced to move away from the city for fear of lynching’s from the angry mobs. Stinney Jr. would be left to face trial alone 1,000 people crammed the courthouse.

Denise Bell, a mother of three and teacher from Charlotte, North Carolina is attending the Rally because she believes that the court system  worked against Stinney. “Everything about this case seems unfair, I feel he (Stinney) was unjustly punished, by the courts, and not given a chance at all to prove his innocence,” I pray that no-one in my family ever has to go through something like this.”

 We don’t care if it happened 60 or 500 years ago.” said, Organizer Gregg Greer

“Not only are we requesting the President to activate the Pardon, but we are inviting the Nikki R. Haley Governor of South Carolina to respond,”  “We will send a clear direct message to the nation that we’re not going to sit back and let our children be slaughtered and don’t say anything about it.” “So, the people involved who will come out to support this cause: are white, black, brown, and they are tired of the growing senseless community violence.  There’s a mixture of people involved and everybody will come out to support God-given, Human Rights.” according to Greer

TrayvonMartinHoodie 

In the recent wake of Trayvon Martin, Troy Davis, and growing number of failed Criminal Justice cases-The organizers goal is to have a peaceful dialog to bring continued attention to this case and community violence. Historical researchers and Death penalty opponents often cite the case of the 5-foot-1, 95-pound Stinney, who was electrocuted in the old Central Correction Institute in Columbia on June 16, 1944-At 14 years, seven months and 29 days, because he was the youngest person legally executed in the United States in the 20th century

  

About four years ago, George Frierson, a member of Clarendon School District 3’s Board of Trustees and a community activist began collecting newspaper articles, death certificates and other documents, as well as anything related to the case that he could put his hands on.  We know that, “A Clarendon County jury came back with a verdict, but it was the state that killed George Stinney,” said George Frierson. For Frierson, a 56-year-old father of four and an Alcolu native, “This was a 14-year-old boy “I look at the sadness of this,” he said. “We want to see if this merits reopening this case,” Frierson said.

For the record-The UN General Assembly proclaimed 10 December as Human Rights Day in 1950, to bring to the attention ‘of the people of the world’ the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the common standard of achievement for all people and all nations. Historically World Human Rights Day continues the celebration of the anniversary with 20 YEARS: WORKING FOR YOUR RIGHTS as its theme but with the emphasis on the future and identifying the challenges that lie ahead.

 Rally will be at 10:00 AM:  Clarendon County Court House Grounds 102 South Mills St. Manning, SC 29102
Dec 10, 2013 Rally will be at 10:00 AM: Clarendon County Court House Grounds 102 South Mills St. Manning, SC 29102

 When speaking about George Stinney and the case, “This isn’t something that I just believe,” Stinney’s sister, Aime L. Stinney, like his other family members, didn’t believe it then, and she doesn’t believe it now.  The 72-year-old Newark, N.J., woman said from her home in a recent interview. “This is something that I know. I know my brother is innocent.”

“Someone has to be the scapegoat,” Aime Stinney said. “My brother was the scapegoat.” Aime Stinney said she found peace a long time ago.

“There is a God who sits high and looks low,” she said. “I know that anyone who had anything to do with this will have to come before a just God.”

 According to Organizer, Gregg Greer, “We must began to correct the past and work toward the future. Where are our governments!!!-Where are the moral voices?!!!! We need to stop these disgraceful practices that are truly evil in nature. “ We encourage everyone to Fight with us!!!  Rally will be at 10:00 AM:  Clarendon County Court House Grounds 102 South Mills St. Manning, SC 29102.

George Washington
George Washington

                          

George Washington, the first President of the United States, was a slave master for substantially all of his days. Washington was the only significant planter among the seven Founding Fathers to liberate his slaves. His will provided for freeing his slaves upon the death of his surviving wife Martha Washington, but she freed them about 12 months after his death. At various times in his life, Washington secretly expressed firm support for the progressive abolition of slavery.

 Thomas Jefferson #3 U.S. President  

Thomas Jefferson declared that all men were created equal, but he also owned numerous or more than 100 slaves. While others like George Washington freed their human property during the Revolutionary War, Jefferson did not, according to New York Times contributor Paul Finkelman. Even when Jefferson died, his will freed only five of his nearly 200 slaves and those were his children with love interest and slave Sally Hemings, though she remained enslaved after his passing.

We are endlessly intrigued with Jefferson, in part because we seem helpless to adapt the rhetoric of liberty in his work with the reality of his slave owning and his life support for slavery. Today and repeatedly, we play down the latter in favor of the former or write off the inconsistency as somehow indicative of his complicated depths.

 

   

Andrew Jackson
Andrew Jackson

                       Andrew Jackson’s #7 U.S. President  

Throughout Andrew Jackson’s military and political career, he endeavored to develop the American Southern boundary, ultimately defeating British, Spanish, and Native Americans in the region. These efforts thrust him to public fame and opened up enormous tracks of land to appreciative white Americans that essentially turned these lands into slave-based cotton plantations.

Like most Southerners, Andrew Jackson held slavery up absolutely despite the apparent moral dilemmas it poses to us in his day, and attempted to undo many of the accomplishments of all his predecessors.

The Indian Removal order of President Andrew Jackson was inspired by the desire of white homesteaders in the South to expand into lands belonging to five Indian tribes. Jackson Then forged the blood-spattered relocation of more than 15,000 members of the Cherokee tribe who were forced to walk from their haven in the southern states to indicated Indian Territory in present day Oklahoma in 1838.

This notorious event became known as the “Trail of Tears” in consequence of the great hardship suffered by Cherokees. Because of the harsh brutal conditions, approximately 4,000 Cherokees perished on the Trail of Tears.

Abraham Lincoln #16 U.S. President

Abe

Although it is true that Lincoln viewed slavery as an evil and harmful institution, it is also true as this paper will reveal that he shared the conviction of nearly all Americans of his generation, and of many notable statesmen before and after him, that blacks could not be adapted into white society. He discarded the opinion of social equality of the races, and adhered to the view that blacks should be resettled elsewhere. As President, he supported plans to remove blacks from the United States.

interestingly Abraham Lincoln’s DNA evidence from a lock Lincoln’s hair which proves that he had a very strong African genetic link and was “half black.” His chromosome makeup is very specific to West African DNA patterns and this suggests that Abraham’s real father was indeed of African origin,” Dr. Alan Holdsworth, who is the chief Anthropologist on this project told National Geographic magazine.  Lincoln’s mother was having an affair with a black plantation worker and new DNA evidence suggests that Abraham was the couples child. Secret love letters unearthed in 2003 reveal that Lincoln’s mother was conducting a clandestine affair with a slave named Iemis from a Kentucky plantation.

      Theodore Roosevelt #26 U.S. President  

TR

During his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt instituted a mixed record in his association with American blacks as evidenced by the following event:

Booker T. Washington`s Visit to the White House. In late 1901, Booker T. Washington, the famous black educator and spokesperson, was requested to the White House to inform the president. Following a successful interchange of opinions, Roosevelt urged Washington to dine with him.

Booker T Washington
Booker T Washington

This gathering was widely published in the press and created an uproar in the South, in which it was a common belief that it was improper for whites and blacks to mingle culturally. This situation negatively influenced Roosevelt`s relations with Southern Congressmen for the remainder of his duration of his time in office.

Blacks, notwithstanding, gave the president high marks for accepting one of their leaders and for being subjected to bitter critique for his action.

As for Roosevelt`s views, he was definitely a believer in Anglo-Saxon superiority, but not to the extent that it precluded him from seeking advice from members of other races.

 

  

Woodrow Wilson during his first term as president. ca. 1910s
Woodrow Wilson during his first term as president. ca. 1910

Woodrow Wilson’s #28 U.S. President  

Woodrow Wilson’s account on race associations was not very pleasant. African-Americans embraced his election in 1912, but they were troubled too. During his initial term in position, the House passed a law declaring racial intermarriage a crime in the District of Columbia. His new Postmaster General also ordered that his Washington facilities and the entire District of Columbia Area be segregated with the Treasury and Navy soon doing the same. Suddenly, photographs were required of all applicants for federal jobs. When pressed by black leaders, Wilson replied, “The purpose of these measures was to reduce the friction It is as far as possible from being a movement against the Negroes. I sincerely believe it to be in their interest.” As president, Wilson confronted a new generation of militant African-American leaders, men like William Monroe Trotter, W.E.B. Du Bois and Marcus Garvey, who had begun to challenge their more conservative elders – and expectations and assumptions of much of white America.

 

Harding #29, Coolidge#30, U.S. Presidents  

COOLIDGE

HARDING

The Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover governments (1921-1932) more remote alienated blacks from American practical government, declining to validate anything correlated to civil rights. President Harding upheld Wilson’s policies of federal segregation, and his Justice administration did nothing to look into lynchings or the actions of the Ku Klux Klan. President Coolidge approved the Republican prototype of a “lily-white” party, further separating black Americans, and argued that the federal government should not intervene with local race issues.

The complicity of Republicans and Democrats on race was complete. President Hoover prohibited blacks from federal agencies and executive branches, and his administration would not permit blacks to work on federal planning jobs

In a climate of World War II hysteria, President Roosevelt, backed by officials at all levels of the federal government, commissioned the internment of tens of thousands of American civilians of Japanese ancestry and resident immigrants from Japan. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066, dated February 19, 1942, and opened the military broad powers to ban any citizen from a fifty to sixty-mile-wide coastal area stretching from Washington state to California and stretching inland into southern Arizona.

Ronald Regan called the act “Racist,” and approved August 10, 1988, H.R. 442, or “An Act to carry out recommendations of the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians” and awarded restitution payments of $20,000 to Japanese-American descendants of World War II civilian internment installations.

  Harry S. Truman #33 U.S. President

HARRY TRUMAN
HARRY TRUMAN

President Harry S. Truman apportioned the common racial prejudices of his childhood in Missouri. As historian David McCullough described in his biography of Truman: He appeared not in support of racial equality for blacks, and he said so. But he required justice and impartiality before the law. [McCullough, David, Truman, Simon and Schuster, 1992, p. 247] Whatever his private views, Truman understood that as President, he must arise above them. On December 5, 1946, he approved an Executive Order 9808 authorizing the President’s Committee on Civil Rights to assess the state of civil rights, organize a report, and make judgments “with respect to the approval or establishment, by enactment of law or otherwise, of more adequate and efficient means and methods for the assurance of the civil rights of the people of the United States.” Charles E. Wilson, the Chairman of General Electric, chaired the board. Truman’s advisors, either from the North or South, were sure he was engaging in political self-slaughter by tackling the issue. [Truman, p. 570]

 Richard Milhous Nixon #37 U.S. President 

Richard Nixon
Richard Nixon

 Richard Nixon was racist. He also loved to document conversations — like the 265 hours that were published by the Nixon Presidential Library. Hint: He didn’t think much of blacks or Jews.

Nixon wasn’t particularly fond of anyone who wasn’t white and/or heterosexual. He believed the Jews were all commies who aspired to legalize weed, and “Negro bastards” only wanted to “remain like a bunch of dogs” on public assistance. He even described ancient Greeks and Romans as “fags.” But that’s old news! The original set of tapes, from February and March of 1973, made available online through the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, have an abundance an of nuggets for folks to pick over.

 

                                                   Nixon, on Blacks:

Bill Rogers has got — to his credit it’s a decent feeling — but somewhat sort of blind spot on the black thing because he’s been in New York,” Nixon said. “He says well, ‘they are coming along, and that after all they are going to strengthen our country in the end because they are strong physically and some of them are smart.’ So forth and so on.

“My own view is I think he’s right if you’re talking in terms of 500 years,” he said. “I think it’s wrong if you’re talking in terms of 50 years. What has to happen is they have been, frankly, inbred. And, you just, that’s the only thing that’s going to do it, Rose.”

And famous Jew Henry Kissinger, on Russian Jews:

The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy,” Mr. Kissinger said. “And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern.”

“I know,” Nixon responded. “We can’t blow up the world because of it.”

 George W Bush’s grandpa and George H Bush’s dad, the late US senator Prescott Bush was an administrator and shareholder of corporations that benefited from their association with the business sponsors of Hitler and Nazi Germany.

The confirmation files in the US National Archives show a firm of which Prescott Bush was an administrator was connected with the economic designers of Nazism.

Prescott Bush’s business dealings, which endured until his business’s assets were taken in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led further than 60 years following to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave laborers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election dispute.

George W. Bush has disconcerting quotes, but it does not make him the inferior president or a bad person. Bush was unlucky enough to suffer from a stutter when speaking in public which was the start of his contempt, but by the end of his presidency he had said plenty adequate and embarrassing quotes to shame himself as a terrible public speaker. Most often these quotes were corrected. Interpreting the quotes below should open up eyes to the character of man George W. Bush really is, a person who often makes errors.

Do you have blacks too?” America should be partially embarrassed for this since it was said to the Brazilian President Fernando Cardoso in 2001. Not only is this question unbelievably racist it is also incredibly ignorant. George W. Bush should not only be embarrassed by this question, but also ashamed he ever asked it all.

  The forceful 2008 support of Barack Obama by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy – and Kennedy’s unexpected split with the Clinton’s – was prompted in part by a racist remark made by Bill Clinton to Kennedy over the phone, according to a new campaign book.

The book, Game Change, by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, asserts on page 218 that after Obama won the Iowa caucuses, Clinton called Kennedy to press for an endorsement from the influential Massachusetts liberal. But the call backfired, according to the authors, and left Kennedy deeply offended.

The day after Iowa, he phoned Kennedy and urged for an endorsement, presenting the petition for his wife. But Bill suddenly went on, belittling Obama in behavior that strongly offended Kennedy. Describing the discussion later to a friend, Teddy boiled that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.

Clinton and Obama
Clinton and Obama

During Hillary Rodham Clinton’s initial bid against Obama in 2008, the former president famously trussed out at Obama’s operations for “playing the race card on me.”

The criticism came after Bill Clinton had likened Obama’s primary performance in South Carolina with the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s pioneering victories in the state, which in turn led the senator from Illinois to respond: “Former President Clinton dismissed my victory in South Carolina as being similar to Jesse Jackson, and he is suggesting that somehow I had something to do with it…. I have no idea what he meant.”

Only History Awaits the overall legency of Barack Obama…………..You be the judge!

U.S. Military moves into Futuristic Warfare starting with “Manchurian Candidate” emotionless programmed “Bionic Super Soldiers”, and “Electronic Super Powered Exeo, “Iron Man Super Suits.”

Posted on Updated on

imagesCAZ4RH10

By Greg Greer, Editor at Large, One world Journal

Last week the US Military announced it’s new line of bionically enhanced super killing soldiers. This begins a new chapter in Military warfare that is almost identically taken from the Sci-fi Movies, like the Manchurian Candidate and the terminator.

The title of “The Manchurian Candidate” has infiltrated everyday language as shorthand for a brainwashed sleeper, a citizen who has been entranced and commanded to act when his controllers extract the psychological trigger. In the film, an American army man is seized by Chinese communists during the Korean War, and one soldier is programmed to develop into a killer; two years later, he’s ordered to assassinate a presidential candidate. The fact that this of the sort programming is now possible has not precluded it from being absorbed as non-fact; this film, published and released in 1962, has influenced American history by forever coloring speculation even about the President John F Kennedy‘s Assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Would the speculation about Oswald’s past in attachment to his motivations have been as fevered without the movie as a template?

Today we embark on an exciting new frontier in 21st-Century Warfare.” Said Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Fourstar General Martin Dempsey.

Also according to Dempsey, “the new soldier is impervious to ever-feeling, and Completely numb to the world.” According to reports the Soldiers will have the potential to sleep without crying and nightmares; also the new solider can witness the deaths of hundreds of squad mates without any emotional stress.

According to the members of the Armed forces these bionic Infantrymen are surgically outfitted with an impenetrable mental barrier though which terror, sorrow, guilt, and despair can’t pass? Also, the new soldier can withstand a psychologically charged “warlike-hell zone.” For prolong periods of time.

“In the Past when ordinary soldiers did endure to get through their deployment, they oftentimes had difficulty Adjusting to life back home without using the gun on their family members,” said Eric Shinseki the current United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs in a recent interview.

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) and additional groups from academia are joining forces to create a Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, that “guarantees to provide superhuman power with greater ballistic protection,” according to a statement released by the U.S. Army.

The various amazing innovations of the both suits include integrated 360-degree cameras like Google Glass (but with night vision capabilities), sensors that can detect lesions and implement a wound-sealing foam, and — get ready for this — a bullet-proof exoskeleton constructed of magnetorheological fluids that can transform from liquid to solid in milliseconds immediately upon a magnetic field or electric current is administered

new soldier can withstand a psychologically charged “warlike-hell zone.” For prolong periods of time of 40 hours or more.

Many may agree with protection of the country but, somewhere in between robotics and biomedical research, we might arrive at the perfect future war fighter: one that is part machine and part human, striking a formidable balance between technology and our frailties.” Why not call these soldiers human drones? Launched from command central, mission orders stored in their brains, operated remotely, their capabilities completely understood as elements of a program, the soldiers would fulfill the military meaning of war: complete and absolute victory as a function of underlying algorithms, regardless of the personal or human cost. GLG

Police are Killing Citizens!-What’s the Truth behind the Sudden outbreak! (Privilege and Control Theory)

Posted on Updated on

By Gregg L.Greer, Editor One World (Journal)

This past month, It was a privilege for me (Gregg L. Greer) to write about Denika Chatman, someone whom I see as a, “hero,”  and currently, she is preparing to take the national stage in a “Historical Run for State Senator District 3 California. I was introduced to Ms. Chatman two years ago due to the tragic circumstance of the death of her son, “Kenneth Harding Jr.” who was killed in July of 2011 by San Francisco Police in a progression of very unfortunate events.
Bobby Henning-shot and killed by a LA sheriff's deputy Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012

Also, this week I began conversations with the family of Robert “Bobby” Henning,  another California young man who was shot and killed by a Los Angeles County Sheriff‘s Deputy Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012 also a California Mother La Mesha Irizarry her son Idriss Stelley was shot dead with 48 bullets from 9 San Francisco policemen. While, most people in communities think that overall there are many “good,” Police Officers, and feel very safe in communities around the country, also people believe Police overall do a great job in protection of the community, lately, many communities are also expressing some anger and disappointment when hearing of the growing amount of “Police Kill, excessive force incidents across the county. “Standout,” communities with a high incident rate of “Police Kill,” incidents are Florida, and most of the State of California, especially the San Fransisco Bay Area.
Guilty in Innocence Project (Final)
Gregg Greer, chair of the Guilty in Innocent Project, states, “ I Strongly urge and understand that most of the incidents are due to an invisible code of ethics called “The Thin Blue Line.” Proponents of the symbol (code) assert that the Blue Line is meant to show support for police like the-Fraternal Order of Police Bumper Stickers. Greer also states “In opposition-those who know of the “Thin Blue Line,” feel that this standard is “extremely,” questionable and is a code that compels a bad police or bad group of police to obey their own makeshift set of laws binding only to themselves.”  “They are becoming like a “Gang,” states, Greer
Well Known Police Blue Line Slogan Sticker
Well Known Police Blue Line Slogan Sticker
Many people in communities strongly feel that, Police make the difference legal at their own discretion.
Here are the basics;
  • 1. The thin blue line represents the thin line Police Officers walk daily between life and death.
  • 2. The thin blue line represents the police officer role of separating the good from the bad while creating order from chaos.
  • 3.The thin blue line on black is a memorial or a connection or memory between Officers killed in the line of Duty and those who continue with their duties in the present.
Pretty similar to the “Thin Blue Line,” is that states including,  Florida, California, and Virginia have The Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights (LEOBR or LEOBoR) which is meant to protect American law enforcement personnel from unreasonable investigation and persecution caused by extraordinary circumstances in the official performance of their duties, and provides them with special privileges not enjoyed by other Americans accused of crimes. It was first set forth in 1974, following Supreme Court rulings in the cases of Garrity v. New Jersey (1967).

Police Bill of Rights-Florida, California, West Virginia

The Bill of Rights while is a tough standard to break, as Community Coalitions like the California Champaign to stop Police Brutality, and other citizens rights groups start to advocate with public awareness the more, officials are prone to act, within the interest of the public.

Example, when Sanford, Florida, Police Chief Bill Lee (above), who drew criticism for his department’s actions in the Trayvon Martin case, was fired for his failure to respond. June of 2012. “After much thoughtful discussion and deep consideration for the issues facing the city of Sanford, I have determined the police chief needs to have the trust and respect of the elected officials and the confidence of the entire community,” City Manager Norton Bonaparte said in a news release.
“We need to move forward with a police chief that all the citizens of Sanford can support. I have come to this decision in light of the escalating divisiveness that has taken hold of the city.”
Gregg Greer As, the current Chair of the Guilty in Innocence Project, which is a growing Human Rights Protection Organization-we believe strongly that when we raise awareness and concern about the failings of our criminal justice system, we can put in place “checks and balances that go far toward prevention of community misconduct especially from sworn officers.  Greer states, ”
__
“Privilege and Control Theory”

Today to prevent the growing concerns of Police Misconduct, The Guilty in Innocence Project (This Week) has initiated a research project concept, called, “Privilege and Control Theory” which is based on what we believe-that some Police  who have long-term exposure to small incidents of violence daily increase aggressive thoughts, angry feelings, physiological arousal and aggressive behaviors, and decreases helpful behaviors. The basics are;

  • 1. Police habituate or ‘get used to’ all the violence and eventually become physiologically numb to it.
  • 2. “Thin Blue Line,” misrepresents the police officer role of “Effective Community Policing,” and separating the good from the bad while creating order from chaos. Which long-term causes them to take on a Master-Slave like mentality, and once this idealism is permeated some officers are willing to go above the law to the extent of murder.”
  • 3. Officers need an effective systematic violence desensitization tool, “in addition to yearly mental health evelauations” 
  • 4. Also, the internal 800 Police misconduct Alert lines must be well-known thought out communities.
  • 5. When a fatality is involved from a police related “Killing,” The review board  (investigating) should be a Non Department, State or federally certified unit. (Not in most of California)
(Anyone who believes in the “Thin Blue Line or The Police Bill of Rights should read)
Dr. Martin Luther King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”

We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was “legal” and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was “illegal.” It was “illegal” to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany. Even so, I am sure that, had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers. If today I lived in a Communist country where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I would openly advocate disobeying that country’s antireligious laws.” Dr. King Later in the letter stated, “law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.”

You can find a community organization, like The Guilty in Innocence Project,  or the  California Champaign to stop Police Brutality (On FaceBook) and ask questions, and get training. You can reach the GuiltyinInnocenceProject@gmail.com or call 704 712-1972
In short, “Whether or not Policy makers would continue to protect The Police Bill of Rights, or the Thin Blue Line, is mainly a public policy question, not an exclusively legal one. Also, when citizens are reacting in mass numbers to policy with interests contrary to the rights of others or the interests of the whole community, then-this type of injustice should be intolerable to every American, or human being. Lastly, if innocent people are imprisoned or, worse, being put to death for crimes that they did not commit, it is a facet of our society that eventually will inflame our society..”  Love, and Peace.  GLG
