Blackout Tuesday: Why is everyone posting black squares online?
"Today the music industry is taking a strong and surprising stance the world hasn't really seen before some of the biggest music labels in the world have decided the June second today will be known as blackout cheese day as part of an initiative called the show must be paused to executives from Atlantic Records to black women Briana Agyemang and Jimmy let Thomas started this initiative in response to the recent deaths of George Floyd Brianna Taylor Ahmad armory and other black people who've been killed by police officers so today a number of major labels and artists are stopping their everyday operations in solidarity and support and to talk systemic racism in major streaming services like Spotify apple music and YouTube music are also taking part with cancellations moments of silence and special playlists but today's blackout is also drawing some criticism we've convened a special Tuesday Q. this music panel to get into it a harmony is a freelance music journalist and critic Lisa Christiansen is a CBC arts reporter on the line from Vancouver harmony today's blackout cheese day tell us exactly what record labels are doing or not doing today Kate's house so it's unclear because a lot of the record labels that have come forward and said that they're going to participate haven't been specific about what they will or will not be doing today H. I. universal music group did mention that they're holding their releases for this week and donating to bail out funds for protesters and suggestions from the two creators of this movement have included each offer some taking a break if one has been impacted by the results of the police killings and just need a moment to green they've also suggested making financial contributions to the families of George Floyd and Brianna Taylor and are breached they've also suggested making financial contributions to protesters are connecting with leaders who are building grassroots campaigns and learning more about it to raise resources for those who want to position themselves as allies Mr from what you're saying on social media today how how widespread is this it's really everywhere it really started over the weekend it started picking up and then by yesterday I just noticed almost everything I was looking at had some kind of statement music labels blog streaming service or DJ music studios even bands now this morning there are just a lot of black squares in my feet the creators of this initiative Atlanta great Atlantic record label execs to Mila Thomas and Brenda Agyemang say today is quote a day to take a beat for an honest reflective and productive conversation about what actions we need to collectively take to support the black community harmony what are you hoping for here what conversations do you hope today's blackout might spark yes so I hope it's a day of introspection for record labels for the music industry and for everyone it's time to draw a line in the sand and speak out against police brutality and systemic racism I'm also hoping it's a day to identify aspects of music industry culture that promotes anti black racism or incubate anti back racism behind the scenes and the lives of the artist but these labels represent I think it's a data call out that org charts and critically examine how many black people are consistent power and decision making tables I'm it's a time to have those conversations but also to create a concrete action plan yes I've seen some concerns emerging today around this black out the harmony especially around people using the hash tag black lives matter what are you hearing right so I'm seeing criticism emerging emerging this morning about how performative at this camp is and how potentially dangerous it is so for instance I can close with black lives matter floods out critical information that organizes are using on the ground protesters are using the black lives matter hashtags to document what is happening on the ground in real time this year fundraising links and other resources that support the black lives matter movement and right now on Instagram if you look it's just taken over with black squares with what other criticism hearing right now well I think a lot of people very very concerned that it's just perform it is it's an easy way to not do anything at all you know it's just Hey look we are observing that and also some of the language and if you look at some of the posts is very vague we're taking some time out we're going to think so I think the only way for this day to be really successful is for those of us who have sat in meetings there needs to be some actionable items that come out of this and people need to be able to prove that they did do something that day and it wasn't just to put a square up on your social media feed

"ahmad armories" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Are things we don't know yet about the killing of Ahmad armory in Georgia N. as in any trial the suspects are entitled to the presumption of innocence but this much seems beyond question two white men one armed with a shotgun when pursuit of a black man who was jogging they later told police that they suspected him of some break ins in the neighborhood there was some type of interaction and Travis McMichael shot and killed Ahmad armory but local prosecutors didn't see the shooting is a crime they didn't arrest make Michael and his father Greg for more than two months to understand the laws in the mindset that makes such a thing possible the new Yorkers Jelani Cobb turned last week I repeat Robbins Robbins is a professor at the law school of American University and is co director of the criminal justice practice and policy institute here's Johnny comp with I repeat Robbins Mr barn hill the second prosecutor who later recused himself wrote a letter to the the police department of the local police department saying it appears that they are here he's referencing McMichael's their intent was to stop and hold this criminal suspect until law enforcement arrived under Georgia law this is perfectly legal how does the statute explicitly allow for pursuit and under what circumstances well I'll answer that but add another layer so when they make Michaels were pursuing Mr armory thinking they had the right to make a citizen's arrest because they think that Mr Arbury was committing a crime in that Welling under construction I guarantee you they make Michaels had no idea whether the crime being committed was a felony or a misdemeanor in fact in the police report it it says to crime it mentions to crimes one is homicide and the other is criminal trespass well if it's criminal trespass that's a misdemeanor and in citizen's arrest law the restores would have fewer rights if it was a burglary that Mr Abreu was committing that would be a felony and the citizen's arrest law would allow greater leeway to the citizens so with that in mind you was it surprising to you that the prosecutor actually to prosecutors looked at the situation and concluded that it was a valid citizen's arrest it says that conclusion indicates to me either that they don't know anything about the law citizens arrest or they are confusing citizen's arrest with self defense and stand your ground laws crew could do fort sort those things out for sure so under the citizen's arrest law basically a person can hold an offender or suspected offender until the police arrive basically it's their job to operate as witnesses not to be a substitute for the police not to take the law into their own hands you had to that though that not all suspected offenders are willing to be arrested and if an altercation ensues that it may be that the arrester and the suspect get into some situation involving use of force and then we get into self defense which is a complicated area of the law even without issues of stand your ground the ordinary self defense law has has a duty to retreat with certain exceptions the stand your ground law in Georgia eliminates the duty to retreat so this case in my opinion stands or falls on whether the initial citizen's arrest confrontation was proper in the first place so we've seen you know the the standard ground laws that really entered our consciousness around the case of Trayvon Martin who was a teenager seventeen years old who was shot by a neighborhood watch man by the name of George Zimmerman in Florida and you know this kind of thing I think this is I think this alerted the public to the fact that there were so many jurisdictions that have these laws and now we're seeing a similar conversation beginning to take place around citizens arrests and the armada are very case is there any connection in your mind behind bars you see such inflammatory situation specifically around the lines of race of with these doctrines wonderful question it seems to me what we're seeing here is a deadly combination of the law of citizen's arrest Floyd self defense laws particularly when we have a stand your ground doctrine as we do in Georgia and arguably racial profiling as well it may be that when they make Michaels raise this idea of stand your ground and self defense built on citizen's arrest the whole thing is a pretext for what starts out as racial profiling and and I would argue that they should have stayed in the truck on it we we seen the the video Greg McMichael was on the phone with the police who arrived as certainly within a minute or so perhaps less than a minute of the shooting the role of a citizen in a citizen's arrest is to operate as a witness it it's not as if they had information that Mr Aubrey was escaping from a major felony of bank robbery or homicide or even a burglary there was no burglary here if this was a burglary perhaps there would have been a right to a citizen's arrest but since this was only a criminal trespass no such right and if there is no such right to do a a citizen's arrest here then when Travis make Michael confronted Mr armory and started the altercation it seems to me that Travis make Michael was the initial aggressor and as such loses the right to self defense another thing that made this case stand out to me was that you know the offense that started the entire pursued at least according to other Nick Michaels was his presence on the property on the grounds of a house that was under construction and you have just a few months ago before the the cultured lockdowns began I was visiting friends in Atlanta and I went for a walk there is lots of new construction in the neighborhood and I saw a house that was under construction and I thought mmhm I wonder what the floor plan is for this place and I didn't go inside but I walked kind of up on to where the lawn would be imposed looking around is like they're putting the staircase over here in the dark over there and it was just a kind of interesting observation I made while walking through the neighborhood and continued walking and the idea that could be provocation for an armed pursuit was unnerving in shocking to me at the least and I do I agree with you and it seems to me that people don't know what the law is specially a law that doesn't get a lot of attention like citizen's arrest law so when somebody does something that even reasonable people might do you should have it might be a very minor crime like troubled criminal trespass going on to someone's property when you don't have a right to be there that doesn't justify detaining someone using force unreasonable force and causing a death if that part of this whole situation falls as I think it should then any defense they make Michaels are raising I think would fall like a house of cards the foundation the citizen's arrest is not a good foundation you look at lots of cases of Simpson's arrest and attempted citizen's arrest these laws have created lots of problems and lots of situations that seem to be on the face very difficult and troubling what do they say on the books a lot of laws whose time has passed stay on the books only because the legislature has not gotten around to repealing them or they think well maybe it's because these these laws have some purpose that we don't presently sees so let's just leave them on the books and and hope for the best but when you see abuses like this when you see on reasonable use of deadly force officials have to use to stand up and and pay attention because the if if we don't do something about it after such an obvious abuse in this case then we're going to see many more abuses in the future we don't want citizens arrest you to become a pretext for an unfortunate end to situations that start with racial profiling we want organized police forces where the members of the police force have been trained to deal with offenders.

C. Armand armory running down the street they believe that he according to what they told the police matches the description of somebody they'd seen on surveillance video and they thought he had something to do with some previous break ins in the neighborhood now there was only one break in and the last in in twenty to that point in twenty twenty that have been reported to the police but they said they did it they didn't hide him from surveillance video and so they then it grab a shot gun they grab a pistol they mount up with apparently another car and a third person and they began trying to corner Ahmad armory as he's running to stop him and as they say in the police report tell him to stop to ask some questions it's at some point then when the video kicks in and you see the final moments for our pre expo landing the card here only trailing him filming him he comes up on a pickup truck she is a pickup truck in a she describes swerves to go around it the younger make Michael moves to intercept him with a shot gun in his hand and then they tussle and he shot at point blank break point blank range of the shot down right in what looks like a lower chance didn't just awful awful terrible video to watch and so that's essentially what happened is from their own testimony it looks like they tried to execute some sorted citizen's arrest on the basis of an old video I hope you have a really undefined previous video surveillance and mounted up in an arm and arm themselves and mounted up and when asked why they arm themselves they say they've seen the same person previously with his hands down his pants so they just assume he might have been armed yeah he was running and workout clothes his hands were clearly visible even a T. shirt and shorts at no point he he was unarmed at no point was there any on the video any indication that he might be armed and yet he shot to death to do that on a on a legal level if you watch the tape it appears that assuming that the there's there's two men in the video there's a father who is in the back of a pickup truck and then there is the younger man who ends up actually shooting him to death and the father the back of a pick up yeah it is it's unclear whether he fires a shot at any point assuming he does not and and D. N. and operate runs around the track and intensity skate confronts the guy who is who is brandishing a shotgun in front of him and and then they're struggling out of the shop and at that point D. basically you can make the case not only for the job using stand your ground theoretically once two people are struggling over the gun in any situation we don't know the the antecedent is there a case for mutual self defense at that point and then the question just becomes was justified in being there in the first place well tell you what if you if you look at it this way Georgia law has a citizen's arrest statute but it also has a false imprisonment statute the citizen's arrest statute seems to be pretty clearly not applicable here if you look at the statute it talks about a a a crime that committed that you have immediate knowledge about there's no crime having been committed that these two individuals have any immediate knowledge about and it's not intended to allow someone to conduct independent investigations mount up in arms chase and and detain someone moreover Georgia case law says very clearly that eight asking to stop to question somebody which is what they told the police they were trying to do is not comp he does not constitute a citizen's arrest that unlawful and so what they were doing was in reality an attempted false imprisonment which is a crime in Georgia that year and unlawful attempt to arrest someone is called false imprisonment and so they were committing a crime against our break it's also a crime to point your gun at another person without legal justification and Georgia coat A. I. IDA had said that they were open carrying their weapons no no no it is not open Kerry to point your gun at someone unlawfully that's brandishing that is that it's a crime in Georgia to do that and so they're committing to crimes at once one is false imprisonment and in their camping also Christmas the other one is the pointing a gun at him and lawfully sh at that point there's one self defense right you're not self defense right attach is to agree and so he has a good record your standard ground out while he has the ability to defend himself at that moment and the fact that while these people are committing felonies did they shoot him even if the father doesn't didn't pull the trigger I would argue he's subject to felony murder statute so that its self defense rights your attachments to our brief from the moment these two individuals try to falsely imprisoning we'll get back to more of this case with David friends you just one second but first let's talk about a great holiday gift you can get from a mother's day is fast approaching what would be more meaningful than taking all of your old family memories and digitizing those they're just out of the garage moldering only seen them for years on the old film reels the VHS tapes your VCR no one has a VCR do you have an old film projector of course you know what you need to do is take all that stuff put it in a legacy box and send it to my friends a legacy box and then they will digitize everything by hand get back perfectly preserved digital copies on the thumb drive DVD or the cloud ready to watch share and enjoy plus they keep you.
