Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free - Cole
I love good police officers. I have them in my immediate family. Like all civil servants they are underpaid and under-resourced for a difficult job….
This is a petition asking for federal laws to be passed that will protect citizens from police violence and misconduct. From the petition itself:
Our 5 Policy Solutions Are As Follows:
1. The shooting and killing of an unarmed citizen who does not have an outstanding warrant for a violent crime should be a federal offense.
2. Choke holds and chest compressions by police (what the coroner lists as the official cause of death for Eric Garner) should be federally banned.
3. All police officers must wear forward-facing body cameras while on duty. They cost just $99 and are having a signficant, positive impact in several cities around the United States and the world.
4. Suspensions for violations of any of the above offenses should be UNPAID.
5. Convictions for the above offenses should have their own set of mandatory minimum penalties. The men who killed Diallo, Bell, Grant, Carter, Garner, and others all walk free while over 1,000,000 non violent offenders are currently incarcerated in American prisons.
Please sign this. It takes not even 30 seconds.

This episode concentrates on the situation in Ferguson, St Louis, where demonstrations continue following the police shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown.
I appreciate Russell Brand using his voice to culture jam by speaking the truth.
