Poisonous Fruit: The Right to Housing Without Po'Lice Harassment- PNN interviews Jeff Adachi

Southern trees bear strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

"If, at 50,000 volts a zap five officers shoot their tasers at the same time, the subject gets 250,000 output. The electrical charge inside the death penalty (electric chair) chamber." Mesha Monge-Irizarry's explanation of the fatal functions for taser use by po-lice officers.

Disparity: Who Polices the Police?

Two words come to mind, right off the bat.  1) brutal, and 2) hypocrisy.  As defined by Webster's "New World" dictionary, brutal means: 1.like a brute; very savage, cruel, etc. 2. very harsh.  And hypocrisy means: 1. a pretending to be what one is not, or to feel what one does not; esp., a pretense of virtue, piety, etc.  This, I say here, is something to consider when one contemplates the motto printed on every standard police car in Seattle and beyond...To serve and protect. 

Profiling: Stop! Put your (BLACK) hands over your (BLACK) head

On Sunday morning 1-9-11 about six -thirty AM, I left the Bread of Life Mission to sell real Change papers. As I was heading to the Starbucks coffee shop, Iwas startled like a moose by bright shining lights. There was at least four police cars shining bright lights on me.
