Know Your Rights.  Protect Yourself. 

Hosts Keith Brown El and David Bell speak on the topic of what to do you if you are confronted by the police.  Know your rights.  Protect yourself.

We will air our calendar at the middle of the hour. Next, we will replay a 11/16/15 Jaws of Justice show with Keith Brown El and his guest, Latahra Smith of the KC Freedom Project on the subject on police misconduct.  It is of considerable concern that their discussion predated the George Floyd shooting by a police officer on May 25, 2020 and the numerous police shootings that have occurred across the United States since that date.  It is important to know the the overall number of deaths of blacks by police shooting have in fact decreased since the BLM movement has been active.  This cannot be a coincidence.

We hope you will listen.

We hope you will listen.

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.”
