THE RELEASE OF BLACK PANTHER AND POKITICAL PRISONER HERMAN WALLACE IS A VERY GOOD THING FOR NO HUMAN DESERVES THAT.
BIT I WILL NOT CALL OT A VICTORY THIS SHITST...EM WATCHED THIS INNOCENT MAN SUFFER ALL OF THOSE YEARS IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT. THEN ON HIS DEATH BED THEY RELEASE HIM... (SMDH).. NO SOR JUSTICE IS TO RELEASE THEM NOW AND NOT WHEN THEY ARE ON A DEATH BED.
LIKE RELEASING MUMIA FROM DEATH ROW TO GENERAL POPULATION IS NO VICTORY.
I KNOW SOME FOLKS MAY FEEL LILE IM BEING TOO HARD.BUT KIKE MALCOLM X SAID " TOU CAN'T STICK A NINE INCH KNIFE IN MY BACK And PULL IT OUT THREE INCHES THEN TELL ME THAT IS PROGRESS..
NO TAKE THE KNIFE OUT ALL TOGETHER. OR NOTHING.
WE DO NOT FIGHT FOR CRUMBS OFF OF THE TABLE OF MASSA.
SO THIS IS THE TREND KILL OUR HEROES IN These JAILS THEN WAIT TILL TJEY ARE ON THE DEATH BED TO RELEASE INNOCENT PEOPLE
Good news. You can't possibly see justice in this after 40 years in solitary confinement but at least he can live his final days surrounded by love. Human rights is something we should model before attempting to regulate the rest of the world.
Is The NYPD The ‘Biggest Gang’ In New York? (VIDEO)
Kasiem Walters, spokesperson for Communities For Police Reform (CPR) and the first subject in a series of re...cent videos promoting reform of New York’s Stop & Frisk Policy, knows a thing or two about gang activity. After all, the eighteen-year-old Brooklyn native has been stopped and frisked by the NYPD more than ten times since he was twelve years old.
“I tell people all the time: [the] NYPD is the biggest gang in New York. It’s so funny; they’re so focused on gangs, and they’ve become a gang themselves… was telling someone the other day: give me any characteristic of a gang that the NYPD doesn’t do, and he couldn’t,” Kasiem told me during a recent interview during the Adobe Youth Voices International Conference in Santa Clara, CA. Gang activity in East Flatbush – Kasiem’s neighborhood, as well as the home of Kimani Gray, the young teen slain by NYPD officers earlier this year – has become more prevalent in recent years, making his observation a poignant one, and worthy of investigative merit. As the gang presence in New York has increased, so has the police response, primarily through Stop & Frisk. But, has the NYPD’s tactics begun to mimic too closely those of the gangs they claim to be in principled opposition to?
According to the National Institute Of Justice, there is no universally agreed-upon definition of “gang” in the United States, but the Department Of Justice does have a rather robust set of criteria for determining what a gang does and does not look like. When applied to the NYPD, the comparisons are rather striking. Of the five points in question, three are of particular relevance:
Vincent "Mad Dog" Coll (born Uinseann Ó Colla, July 20, 1908; died February 8, 1932) was an Irish American mob hitman in the 1920s and early 1930s in New York City. Coll gained notoriety for the alleged accidental killing of a young child during a mob kidnap attempt
Coll's ruthlessness made him a valued enforcer to Schultz at first. As Schultz's criminal empire grew in power during the 1920s, he employed Coll as an assassin. At age nineteen, Coll was charged with the murder o...
Owney "The Killer" Madden (December 18, 1891 – April 24, 1965) was a leading underworld figure in Manhattan, most notable for his involvement in organized crime during Prohibition. He also ran the famous Cotton Club and was a leading boxing promoter in the 1930s.
Owen Vincent Madden was born at 25 Somerset Street in Leeds, England on December 18, 1891, the son of Francis and Mary Madden (nee O'Neil). In search of work, the family moved first to Wigan, then to Liverpool. It wa...
