Lies And Scare Tactics. A Little Knowledge Goes A Long Way

Stop Cyber Abuse

On November 22, 2015, I made a blog administrator’s decision. Out of spite, the person who asked for my help and communicated with me for the greater part of 11 months, went into revenge mode. He has me over a barrel. Because there is pending litigation, I am restrained from giving details publicly about what took place.  Indeed, I can barely post “Good morning” on Twitter or this blog without him calling his attorney complaining that I am interfering in his “cases,” or talking about “his business” or “bad-mouthing” him.

On the other hand, while I am restrained from sharing certain information, he has no restraints and has gone public with his lies, harassment and the carrying out of his threats.  Therefore, I am compelled to share some knowledge to settle any concerns or fears based on his most recent misrepresentation.

I didn’t want to do this, but knowledge is…

Black History Month – Clementa Pinckney, Pastor and State Senator

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

By Guest Blogger, Yahtzeebutterfly

Rev. Senator Clementa Pinckney was both a strong, inspirational leader and a caring, compassionate servant to his community.  It is my hope that he will be remembered in history books and during future Black History Months and also that his legacy will lead others to follow in his path.

Born July 30, 1973, in Beaufort, SC, Pinckney became a pastor at the age of 18 and a state representative at the age of 23. He was 27 when he became a state senator, a position he held until a white supremacist’s bullet took his life on June 17, 2015.

I watched a video where Rev. Pinckney explained to a group visiting the Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston why he chose to be both a pastor and a state legislator:

There are many people who say, “Why would you as a preacher, why would…

Peter Liang Found Guilty of Manslaughter For the Killing of Akai Gurley

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

peter-liang-akai-gurleyJustice for Akai

New York police officer Peter Liang, who shot and killed an unarmed man in a New York housing project stairwell in 2014, has been found guilty of manslaughter and official misconduct. Liang was charged with 5 counts in the death of 28-year old Akai.

Liang was charged with manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment, criminally negligent homicide and official misconduct.

The jury consisted of 7 men and 5 women.   During trial, Liang testified in his own defense.  He testified that his gun went off by accident after he entered the pitch-black stairwell and heard a “quick sound” coming from his left side that startled him and caused him to “tense up” and fire his weapon.

A major contention happened at trial when prosecutors presented that Liang did not administer first aid to Akai.  Prosecutors called on a number of instructors from the Police Academy to testify about the…

Robocop Finally Goes To Jail Or, How To Use A Badge To Keep A Predominately Black City Oppressed

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

I’m a bit late with this story. I was not going to blog about it, but last night a dear friend told me that I had to. He said that I needed to express my opinion about how cities are placed in conditions of oppression, and the subject police officer in this case is a perfect example.

William Melendez was a police officer for the City of Detroit from 1993 to 2009. He received more civilian complaints than any other officer in the department. He was nicknamed “Robocop” like the movie character, purportedly because of his merciless violence against criminals. Melendez was accused of planting evidence, wrongfully killing civilians, falsifying police reports, and conducting illegal arrests.

Melendez has been a named defendant in at least 12 federal lawsuits. Some suits were settled out of court. Others were dismissed. Three years into the Detroit police force, Melendez and his partner fatally…
