Cop Block Gets Exposed as Radical Hate Group Following Dallas Mass Shooting

Before going forward, this article isn’t about me taking a “side” between cops and African American males who, far too often, are murdered by police officers. I have no “side” in any of this except to see that murderers face justice and we come together as a nation to do what we can to fix […]

Former Gang Members and Police Work Together to Reduce Homicides in Chicago Neighborhood (Video)

While there’s a lot of debate in this country over racism, gun violence, police interaction with African-Americans and how all of this ties together, I really don’t see a whole lot of actual meaningful discussions taking place. Sure, there are plenty of people who are highly vocal about how they feel about these particular issues, […]

Racists Are Losing Their Minds Because Officers Will Be Charged For Killing Freddie Gray

Over the past few days, there have been many people who were quick to jump on any story that came out that looked like it would prove that Baltimore police officers had nothing to do with the death of Freddie Gray. It wasn’t really until after peaceful protests were overshadowed by violence and incidents involving […]

Confrontation Between Texas Police Officer and Three African-American Teens is Something Everyone Needs to See

For months the topic of police shootings and violence (specifically involving African-American males) has dominated the headlines. For most of that time I’ve tried to bring rational discourse to this debate, though I quickly realized that most people didn’t want an actual “debate” – they just wanted someone to tell them what they wanted to […]

The NYPD Demonstrates The Very Real Problem With Law Enforcement

I’ve been a supporter both of law enforcement and legitimate police accountability groups since the police brutality issue began. Recently, I marched in a #BlackLivesMatter protest and met the family of Victor White III who allegedly died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest while in the back of a New Iberia Parish deputy’s […]

The Media Shoulders Some Of The Blame For The Divide Among Police And Civilians

Police accountability and justice shouldn’t be a “left vs. right” issue, but sadly, that’s exactly what it’s turned into. It’s individuals with agendas based on personal feelings rather than facts, who are out trying to “win” an argument. At the end of the day, both sides agree that bad police officers should be held accountable. […]

Dismantling the Thin Blue Line that Turns Its Back On Us

For those surprised that the New York Police Department has officers turning their backs on their own mayor, don’t be. The NYPD has long since turned their backs on the Black community in New York City. It has, like the majority of policing organizations in the US and abroad, long since turned its back on […]

Why More Americans Need to be Skeptical of Advocacy and Accountability Groups

I applaud anyone who devotes some of their time to advocating for a cause in which they strongly believe. That’s why I got into studying and debating politicsĀ to begin with. I want to do what I can with whatever gifts I’ve been given to hopefully make some sort of a difference. But I would never […]

The Republican Ideological Problem When It Comes to Anti-Cop Organizations

I strongly believe that it’s ridiculous to view the debate over race relations or police behavior as a “left vs. right” debate, but that’s more or less what’s happened for many people. Driven by the media’s desire to generate revenue (with anger and division being huge moneymakers), we’ve spent more time in this country discussing […]

The Conservative Media Displays Blatant Hypocrisy Over The Murder Of NYPD Officers

Without fail, conservative politicians and conservative media have jumped all over the recent murder of two NYPD officers to further their narrative that those of us who want reform and better training in law enforcement are fomenting anti-cop violence. Just this morning, Fox News ran a segment asking if America had lost respect for police […]
