"So he wasn't released on a technicality. I don't even think that you can say. He bought his way out of prison. No no i don't believe that's true either. Did he have attorneys. Who were able to argue this before the supreme court and does that make him a person of means. Yeah of course definitely but he didn't buy his way out of out of prison. That's not what happened. It was a it was a probably. I would think a very difficult decision from the supreme court to do such a thing but it was the prosecution. I would call that prosecutorial misconduct. It was misconduct. I mean that's how you throw out a conviction is that the supreme court determined. It was misconduct. Does that mean that. he's innocent. Absolutely not does it. Mean that he is legally not guilty criminally. It does mean that in means that he is criminally not convicted. Here's probably. I hate to end on a gross snow. Here's probably the grossest thing. Bill cosby is going to sue the county and the state for his. I guess you could call it a wrongful conviction. He will sue them for the misconduct. I don't think it's a wrongful conviction. He was not exonerated and in the supreme court was clear not to say that and and when there is an exoneration excuse me when there is an exoneration they will say such a thing but he'll probably sue them and he could win because there was misconduct there which is crazy. Bill cosby admitted multiple times over multiple decades to giving women what's called date rape drugs and then performing sex acts on it has admitted that in anybody denying it is lying. He admitted it. You know he admitted it and if you don't know he admitted it it's either because you're willfully ignorant or did not do your research or You are thinking. He admitted these things in didn't actually mean them. I have no idea. He admitted it just horrible. And it's why the work we do it. Real justice is so important because we believe in electing ethical district attorneys who run smart fair just systems. And that's often that we get in this country particularly when it pertains to crimes against women and In other marginalized groups what a day It is thursday july first and they are multiple supreme court decisions.

"Is a scam. They are literally the most inept most ineffective public servants have to put. You can't seem you. Putting air quotes around that they are the most inept ineffective government employees in the country. They saw two percent of major crimes two percent yet. They're getting hundreds of billions of dollars in many cities. Policing is number one line item on the budget in most cities. It's at least the second or third highest line item on their budget. What are you getting in return because you damn show not getting public safety. They're not solving crimes and they definitely are stopping them or preventing them. It's just not happening and we need to get that out there because as as politicians start to say we don't need to define the police. We need to increase their funding. Why my god don't give them another dollar. There's not another department in america. Another agency in america that could be that ineffective and get a raise that ineffective and keep their job.

"Specific details on what they are allowed to say what they are allowed to stand for what they are allowed to wear and represent and it was weird because it said like they can win the nba. Did something like this and think about it. The more bothers me is that the athletes can wear things that have very generic words on it like respect or a piece. Okay all right but it can't say black lives matter. It can't say brianna taylor. It can't say. George floyd it can't it can't say define the police like it. It can't make any statement other than the most generic words imaginable unless this. Let's just unpack black. Lives matter for a moment. not not the movement. Just the phrase. Is it that dangerous to say. That black lives matter. So what we're saying is that black lives matter in the olympics. They sure as hell matter in the one hundred meter dash right all black lives. Don't matter i bet they matter in the long jump. I bet they matter in the four by one hundred relay but all of a sudden we can't just have the phrase black lives matter on our clothes because that is too radical of a statement is problematic and they could say well. Well that's because we don't want white supremacists to wear this day. No no no. No no no no no white. Supremacy is the hate of black people. Black lives matter. Just the phrase is about saying we need to live in a culture and a society in a world where these lives count equally. Of course they have also said that any athlete who wears anything like this including armbands wristbands clothing shirts hoodies jackets sweat shirts patches stickers face paint that says anything about black lives matter and will be suspended impossibly find and that you also cannot take a knee or do anything that resembles any type of black power solidarity from putting a fist in the air or anything else is disgusting win. Your patriotism requires my silence when your patriotism has to be so bland and when your patriotism is so fragile that me making a statement for black lives scares the hell out of you. We've got a problem we do. Today is a short episode of the breakdown. I want to encourage every olympic athlete of you. All olympic athletes need to not only speak out against this. Every olympic athlete needs to do the exact opposite where the paraphernalia where the memorabilia take the steps. Do what you have to do. The speak our stand up for black lives and not just black athletes every athlete. Who cares about black lives every athlete. Who has a strong point to make about humanity and the state we're in right now should ignore this ban period. Point blank dot com. We're in a different day and age. And here's the thing. If all of you ignore the ban. They can't suspend everybody. They can't find. Everybody is going to take that type of power in that type of solidarity to fight back against this.

"Prior to their nephew. Their family member getting murdered in this school through mobile. That's something that's the family size. Not she's right. The family also said that anthony had the gun to never go into the school and shoot no one or anyone in the school. He had the gun as protection against the stepfather who was threatening to come there and beat him up and mind. You had already done it before. So he never had a gun to har- a single soul and at school. The also was able to emphasize that he never pulled a gun out the bathroom either. So the opposite exit never confirmed a gun on him or not on him. They came in and immediately engaged in a scuffle hill. So it's not a community. Come from you know bull way right. He begged his mother. Put up here. He asked to come to e. Boy the mom and dad differ control over right. You know he. I know bad kid. He don't run around all night in the streets. He has a curfew. He's at home every night. According to his family every night at ten thirty his ass home in the bed so he is not a drug dealer. Hey no game memory. He's none of those things. They put on math act. The little boy was in mental health. He was readily come to school. He was making good grades and passing his classes. The only problem he had was having a girlfriend would've stepfather that thousands. Okay to jump hill was she told him things going on between her and he'll so clear. Brad the doubter is a mess around the staff. I say they're part. Because i don't know that i'm going gonna stick to what the effects of this particular story. But yes the reveals some other information but the key part she told us was how anthony got killed yesterday in his bathroom and she asked me to brian the truth to the community because she's sick of watching all this speculation misinformation going up and down and across the board so not so community straight from the horse's mouth of the family of the deceased anthony. This is how this little boy got killed so it is true. The police department is responsible for his deal. And if that ain't nothing else we are getting ready to turn the fuck up to the extreme max. Because what. i won't came to me. I won't every police department american. Explain to me how the hell does cow. Rittenhouse go suto pass. These with is assault rifle. Hannah fuck that little boy. South carolina goes down a church. Take his asked the burger king. What about the guy like a couple of weeks. Go to a mass murder. Took him out single damn mark on his body. So you can keep your. Don't kill arm mass. Murdering white men. But john kill unarmed black men and black boys custody. We're gonna need some answers right there now and you can't no one not trying to us. No one try to tell us the damn true no one else. They're avoiding us. No wonder you hiding behind these fucking administrative people as cinema. Fuck czar lot to our face about what happened that motherfucker goddamn hero. He's a fucking. The voice that you just heard was constance every a local activist and organizer in knoxville. A brilliant young woman who has feet on the ground and is doing. Excellent amazing work there in knoxville. She spoke to the family and she posted this live video that you just heard on facebook. And she's with several people who like she wants everyone to know like. Hey i'm not making this up. And she turns to her friends and says like. Can't you also confirm that i just spoke to the family of the young man who was there and what went down was very very different than what police were saying of course on monday the first report was there was a mass shooting at a school then they went from mass shooting to school shooting and now we know the officers shot himself that anthony did not shoot anyone and that the only person who was shot and killed was anthony a young black boy at a school and now we know that the gun was not his and that for whatever reason a friend gave him this gun to protect himself from what he believed was going to an assault. That was going to happen after school. And when police were called to report that anthony had a gun they rushed him. Shot him and killed him. I'm gonna continue to investigate this. I'm about to share this video across social media as well so that people can understand that the initial reports that police heroically stopped a mass shooting that police heroically in a hail of gunfire that where they were being shot. At and got shot stopped a mass shooting. That didn't happen. In fact we had a gum. Teenage relationship dispute that ultimately cost a young black boys. Life is tragic but we need to correct the record. I'm gonna be back. I'm going to explain this. As i continue to learn more about it in the days ahead but i'm concerned and i'm concerned for anthony's family. I'm concerned for how police initially framed it. And it clearly is not what they said it was. Listen is a lot going on in our country. And we're gonna continue to unpack and explain the issues here on the breakdown.

"Brooklyn center. And i didn't. I never heard of brooklyn center. Minnesota and i was confused. When i kept hearing people say it was in minneapolis but it was actually in a town called brooklyn center and they had their own police department. I couldn't make sense of it now. A lot of it makes sense. The town brooklyn center. Minnesota was literally founded by clan. Member is name is earl. Brown is the founder of the town. This is not listen. Google it is first. Name is earl e. a. r. l. e. brown google earl brown kkk. He is listed regularly in all of the roles of the kkk. This was not a secret. This is not a conspiracy theory. An active member of the kkk formed the town brooklyn center. His name is still all over the town. And here's perhaps the most revealing point. He was the sheriff of brooklyn center. It's everything that we always say. Law enforcement was abou- almost one hundred years ago when he founded this town. Sheriff earl brown was an active involve dedicated member of the k. k. k. It's what we say. That law enforcement is so deeply intertwined with slavery with the clan with white supremacy these institutions are white supremacist institutions. And this man's name up until last you had an elementary school named. After this man they still have parks and festivals all over this town named after a lifelong member of the clan. Thank on that's what we're up against. That's who we're up against. I'm going to continue following this case you know. Many people are asking questions that we see all the time like. Why didn't dante just comply people are terrified of police. Having worked with hundreds of families including families just like donna tastes where a young man was. A young man or woman was being placed under arrest and they panicked and y- didn't comply because they terrified of the police officer. A terrified of the consequences are terrified of going to jail. In that moment it is incredibly difficult for people to think clearly and i just ask you to have compassion on black men women and children who are placed under arrest and don't appear to make the decisions you think they should make from the comfort of your living room. You don't really understand the the terror the rise in blood pressure and the lowering of of decision making skills in judgment making moments. It's very difficult. All we know is that he should not have been shot and killed no matter what. Listen i've gotta run. But i hope that you'll become members at the north star dot com. The northstar not only underwrites this podcast. But as soon as i finish this podcast. I'm going to go write a brand new article for today. I have hundreds and hundreds of articles that you can read.

Of course it is and what we see. Is that our work at every. Turn our influence at every. Turn as being undermined in question. Who's behind so what i want to know.

"Of the fiber of the cake. It can't be removed. You can't remove the flower you can't remove what's been baked into it and racism has been baked into america's justice system it is a core ingredient woven into the fiber blended cooked by fire into the system. You can't remove it. We can try and it's worth trying to figure out. How do we remove racism and bigotry from the american justice system. It's a noble effort. Yes and i am as optimistic of a person as you'll ever meet having done this work for my entire adult life for twenty plus years now. Racism is leaving these systems but there is a way to begin leveling the playing field of the justice system of course if you removed racism and bigotry and discrimination philander steel would not have been pulled over at least fifty three times and shot and killed. Wouldn't happen it is a unique if you show me a young black man who's been pulled if you show me without me even knowing the race if you show me someone who's been pulled over fifty three times in their young life i can all but guarantee you that that person is not white that is not a white experience the landau casteel experience was a uniquely black experience where he lived to be pulled over over and over and over again harassed over and to be able to survive it not only survive but to keep his job to keep his humanity to keep his dignity after being pulled over dozens and dozens of times only for the fifty third to be his last. You remove racism from that system. I believe Landau is alive. You wouldn't have been shot. You certainly would not have been pulled over. But i don't think racism can be removed from the system. What we have to do is drastically reduce the number of times. Police force interactions with people in general. We have to do it. We must do it and we do that. And i'll be talking about this over the next few weeks. We do that in many ways. Many people say let's remove traffic stops from police and just had a new department of transportation agency. Let's remove mental health visits. let's remove homelessness interactions. Let's remove anything about substance abuse from police. Let's remove as many things as humanly possible from an armed officer being a part of it period instead of people getting tickets for speeding just literally have speed cameras. I would rather not even be speed cameras but just literally make it. Technological reduce the number of times people are forced to interact with police. And here's what i know if landau had only had not fifty three but five or three or two interactions with police each time you reduce that number of forced interactions. You increase the likelihood that he survives. What i say my story and again i would love to read it and see at the northstar dot com is that this is not just the story of landau casteel but so many victims of police violence had been abused and harassed by police for their entire lives until the last time was their literal last time again. Check it out at the northstar dot com love and appreciate all of you police brutality. It's a math problem. I'll explain what i mean here in the weeks ahead. Probably every monday or so. I'll be talking about this again. You can see the series. Now at the north star dot com. Take care of your body break. The bring the bring the tiffany hawkins. I'm alan boomer.

"Breakdown. Coin tell pro is shorthand for a counter intelligence program that was really mastermind by the godfather of the federal bureau of investigation's the fbi j. edgar hoover and as you probably know j. Edgar hoover was a notorious racist. Sorry of you heard my slack. Go off in the background. A j. edgar hoover was a notorious anti-black racist who did everything he could to infiltrate and undermine not only the civil rights movement and black power movements but before the movement that we now know is the civil rights movement with with dr king and others in the american south were protesting and demonstrating a generation. Before that j. Edgar hoover was doing everything he could to literally destroy the lives of any black activist any black organizers and to implode their movements from the inside out and he would often do so by planting people on the inside feeding the misinformation doing anything that he could to cause people to distrust quality leaders of course if they could survey o them and arrest them and charge them or overcharge them or indict them. These things would happen on a regular basis and it boiled over. It was not new in the civil rights movement but it boiled over in a civil rights movement and you. You've probably heard Coats before from j. Edgar hoover about the fbi about the civil rights movement where he regularly said that different people in the civil rights movement and the black power movement or the number one threat to the safety and security of the united states of america. And i need you to understand that. This program coin tell pro regularly pitted civil rights activists civil rights organizations against one another it regularly pitted groups against one another including and it. This needs to be understood and you should read the fbi files on malcolm x. And even watch the documentaries about this but the fbi was regularly feeding the nation of islam. Misinformation about malcolm x. was readily feeding malcolm x. misinformation about the nation of islam and was trying to feel that tension and that stress until it boiled over but we saw that not only with malcolm and the nation. We saw that with every group every organization and it continued from the fifties through the sixties deep into the seventy s. Really all the way through the eighties when you began to consider the planting of crack cocaine in black neighborhoods that was shipped over from overseas. So that the reagan administration could literally for an underground war that they had that was. That's the iran contra scandal again. This isn't conspiracy theory. This is like accepted fact. This stuff is known on the record and over and over again. The federal government has destroyed movements for black power from the inside out and a lot of what we saw in those movements. I'm seeing it right now. We're seeing right now. And this is not just about me and attacks on me but as i see leaders women that i know love trust and admire whose work i have seen up close and personal whose whose efforts are not only heartfelt and well intentioned but effective and well executed as i see not only myself but to make a mallory. The entire black lives matter movement Molina abdulah who is like family to me. Who is the director of black lives matter. Los angeles a brilliant woman as i see my dear friend and brother lee married the attorney of ben crump or others all made out to be the enemy of progress and change of this movement and as i see people pitting families against families activists against families families against activist. It's clear that there are multiple people and forces at play including governments but also including other forces that can easily feed misinformation to people in ways. That weren't so easy in the forties or fifties or sixties or seventies technology. Makes it so easy for vulnerable people to be easily misinformed and led astray and for the next three days today tomorrow and friday. I'm going to be unpacking explaining here. On this podcast. And in my articles at the northstar dot com. How i think in many ways we are experiencing coin. Tell pro two point. Oh come back tomorrow.

"Passing and and being signed into law. We also have to learn from what they're doing. And in the places where. Democrats control state legislatures and governorships.

"For the past two years now voice a little horse but for the past two years. We've been fighting to free michael thompson from prison in michigan. He's been incarcerated for twenty five years not for murder not for a sexual assault. Not for robbery but for selling weed. And if you've heard me say this before it's important for me to say it. Wow michael was incarcerated. He literally saw people who were for murder. Serve their entire term and get released. He saw people who were convicted. Some who plead guilty or who didn't who were convicted of sexual assault. Serve their entire term. Michael was imprisoned for so long that he literally saw people start their career at the prison and work their entire career and retire. And while michael was there for selling weed non violent crime while he was there his parents died is only son died. He lost virtually everything he had accept his dignity and he continued hoping and believing that one day he would be free. They convict they. They sentence this man to over forty years. We had to fight to get the governor of michigan. The attorney general of michigan lieutenant governor of michigan. The local district attorney. We had to fight to get them to make this commutation to release this man and when they released him. They didn't do so in my mind. You weed is now legal in michigan and has been legal in michigan for years and even after it was legalized they continued to keep him incarcerated on thankful the gall nerve they continued to keep him incarcerated but michael continue to hope and believe that he would be freed in this past week. Finally in twenty twenty one michael was freed and when they let michael out. They didn't do so with a multi million dollar settlement. They didn't do so where they gave him. Thirty thousand one hundred thousand dollars or two hundred thousand dollars a year for every year. He was incarcerated. They didn't give him a check for one thousand dollars. They gave him nothing. No housing no transportation. He's on his own. Which is crazy because now he's a senior citizen out in this world that has changed so drastically. He's been imprisoned. i'm forty one. He's been imprisoned since i was teenage boy. And we're going to buy this man a house if you go to my instagram page and click the link in my bio and by the time you click the link. We might have already raised the money but if you go to my instagram page and click the link in my bio at shaun king on instagram. You can see pictures of the home.

There are painful stories. That i could tell today but i decided today that today the first day of black history month we would come together and do something good something righteous something that will last something that will at least give this one man who was wronged by the system not only give him peace and comfort would literally give them shelter. Give him a place to stay a place to live and We're going to do this and we're gonna have him go. Buy a house in cash. Because here's the thing. There are apartments and god. This makes my blood boil. There are apartments. They won't even lease to michael in michigan and michael appears to basically be stuck in michigan because even though he served twenty five years in prison they decided to put on four extra years of probation unthinkable. We're working on that. We wanted to get michael released and housed and all of that. And if he ever one day decides to sell this house and move on his business but michael pick this home.

"We we were always up against it because three police officers were killed and as their ten different things that make me angry but one that might surprise you is. There were several groups that could and should have helped nate and they just didn't and I think they didn't in great part because three police officers were killed. Had nothing to do with it but it made the case dangerous and most organizations that fight wrongful convictions. They just weren't trying to touch pay. Just wouldn't I know I asked him. The family had already asked them. Lauren asks them and in the end they would say they tweet here there. Whatever but they nate needed a world class organization to take on this case and the few that exist. They didn't and that's not why he died. He died because this system is racist. It's unjust. They were determined to murder. Nate they lied about nate. The attorney general lied about named the Attorney General of Alabama lied and said that they'd never surrendered. Of course he did. He surrendered twice actually end. The police officer testimony says this. I've read it over and over and over again. They're not smoke and mirrors here. Nate surrendered in the House to police. The police officers. He surrendered to solid and the police officers who enter the house saw and testified and said that NATO only ran when the shooting broke out because it was horrible and scary and he literally just ran across the street and sat on the porch and surrendered again calmly coolly respectfully. He didn't break a single law in the entire ordeal. It is in every way. In every aspect of the definition it was a it was a lynching he never received a fair trial. He never received anything that resembled justice. They would just determined to kill that man and Is is heartbreaking. You know if you can today a please follow us at grass roots law on instagram.

"We're back Sam cedar on the majority of port on the phone. It is a pleasure to welcome back to the program. The host and proprietor of the Benjamin Dixon show, Benjamin Dixon and also now the one of the proprietors of the Norstar. Ben, welcome to the program. What's the Norstar? The northstar. Hey Sam first of all thanks so much for having me, man. It's always a pleasure. The northstar is the abolitionist paper started by Frederick Douglass. And I have partnered with Shaun king. And with the permission and the blessing of the descendants, the family of Frederick Douglass. We are relaunching the northstar as a digital platform. It's going to be a comprehensive media pl- or company that does podcast videos, original journalism, the whole whole nine yards. So that's what we're doing building. The northstar dot com. That's so awesome. I'm. Very excited when it Wendy launch. So we started a pre this. It's been crazy, man. I it has definitely been a ride so far we did a prelaunch on last Thursday a week ago we day ago, and we have a hundred and twenty thousand people who signed up expressed interest in participating reading our content donating and all sorts of things. So we started that just last week one hundred twenty thousand sign ups, and we are looking to launch in earnest in twenty nineteen around the birthday of Frederick Douglass. Now, we have a lot of things that are happening between now and then February fourteenth, which is birthday a lot of things that are going to happen between now and then, but that's when we wanna make our public facing launch. Wow. That's super exciting. Congratulations on that. They so much. That's really great. Folks can head over wet. What's the the address? Building. The northstar dot com. Great building the star dot com. We'll put a link to that in the podcast description, and in our YouTube, description and descriptions appear. All right. So Ben crazy week. Yeah. Not not too dissimilar from any other week except for the nature of the craziness a little bit different. But so all right. So the the midterm elections. It seems like as the days have passed the Democrats did better than one then certainly appeared on Tuesday. But they did it seemed to me like as of Tuesday about around where anybody, you know, within basically the middle of predictions. I would say, yeah. No, actually, I think they did a little better than the predictions. I think honestly, we had our hearts wrapped up into. To races in particular, the governor's race here in Georgia and Florida what those are really matters of our heart hearts broken. And so we it was hard to look at all of those seats that flipped in the house and be excited about it. Because our hearts were broken. But we flipped what thirty some seats. I don't even know that the final toll at this point. And. Of course, Nancy Pelosi has a op -tunities to probably be the speaker again while there's some challenges to that. We'll see how that plays out. But I mean, that's a significant deal. I anyone who thought we were going to get the Senate. I was I was joking around about it. I don't care about beds. I'll make a crazy any day. But I honestly knew the odds were against us in the Senate with the number of red state Democrats were up for reelection. And you know, out of the red state Democrats that we lost. I wish we could have lost Joe mansion and kept maybe one to the other ones. But the point is it was up hill battle, and we expected that so hot takes being hot takes people gave them that night that became the narrative, but it panned out differently over the last few days. Yeah. I think it's now we're up to thirty six or something and the percentage of vote..
