The Right Thing To Do, Part 2

Peace.      Yo, I'm back with part 2 of my blog on the "The Right Thing To Do".  Instead of a brotha writing another article I decided to produce a documentary film on police brutality and due process reform. At first I was going to leave the subject alone.  I put in my 2 cents on how people should conduct themself with the cops but in March of this year I met a sista, Antwynette Houston of Louisville Kentucky.  I read her article on another social media site.  After reading her story I was shocked to find out how serious her case was.  What looked like a local parking infraction turned into an attempted abduction from an off duty Louisville Police officer.  Mrs. Houston suffered a seriously dislocated shoulder injury from the officer.  It's been over a year and she's still in litigations with Louisville Metro Police.    ...

I was only home for 2 days and in New Orleans with my first wife buying food for my (step)daughter's birthday party. She was born on September 12, by the way. After the last plane crashed in Virginia I received a call from the government saying my leave was canceled and I was being deployed immediately to New York. My wife panicked in front of the Winn Dixie shoppers as they watched the news of the attack on TV. She was very upset that I had to go after being gone for 6 months. I gave her instructions on what to do if any other attacks occur. What scared me was I trained for the same attacks in...
