Retired Police Chief Arrested in Full Uniform at Occupy Wall Street

Retired police chief arrested in full uniform at Occupy Wall Street demo after branding fellow officers obnoxious, arrogant and ignorant | Mail Online.

Awesome! Kudos to Captain Ray Lewis in taking the right path, and speaking out against the oppressive, hegemonic regime that parades themselves off as democracy. He was willing to be publicly criticized and arrested for taking just action for humankind. The people are banding together and thinking similarly, they are working as a single entity to carry out what needs to be done. We all have our place in this intricate web of humanity; we are all special in our own way, with unique attributes to offer to society. If we work together, and give, no matter how small the effort, it is not insignificant. There is a snowball effect that will propel other positive events to occur, and more, and more. Please don’t feel like any positive action doesn’t help progression. There are many parts in a revolution the Million Man March wouldn’t have happened without people to make sandwiches and pass them out, such a minuscule, overlooked detail; but hungry people can’t march very easily. It’s time to remember the great revolutionaries, Gandhi, MLK, Marley, Lennon, Mother Teresa, and others like them. We can learn from the past, we are not doomed to repeat it. This patriarchal oligarchy can topple, and the people can take control back, to create a maybe not perfect; but more altruistic, magnanimous world.

Quan adviser Dan Siegel quits over Occupy Oakland.

Jean Quan, you are obviously doing a pathetic job in controlling your dogs of war. Our constitutional rights are being violated, the People have the right to peacefully assemble. Just another instance of how flawed our entire societal system is. Out with the old. Revolucion!

Maybe we are in for a regime change… I can only hope. It is well past the time that big things should be happening and power struggles toppling. Revolucion!

California Inmate Hunger Strike Against Inhumane Conditions- Sign the Petition!!!

Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity | amplifying the voices of CA prisoners on hunger strike

The penal system in California has been long overdue for reform. Prisoners have been denied constitutional rights and have been subjected to dehumanization, abuse, and stigmatized “racial” segregation. We need to work together to rebuild the “justice” system from the ground up- from biased police profiling and brutality, inadequate court processes, and inhumane jails/prisons that vilify as well exacerbate inmates’ problems- instead of using social programs to help the PEOPLE (not assumed criminals) forced to be there.

Phil Matier: Oakland Police Accused Of Drawing Guns Too Often On Black Suspects

Phil Matier: Oakland Police Accused Of Drawing Guns Too Often On Black Suspects « CBS San Francisco.

So here it is in black and white, so to speak. These scared police officers need rigorous psychological training to prepare them to work these streets. They obviously  by into the ignorance promoted on shows such as Fox news. It is ridiculous when scared police officers, probably rookies, are thrown on the beat without a sufficient non-discrimination training course or two. It is of dire importance that these cops be trained to overcome their bias and fear. Otherwise, people of color, as well as people of lower class standing, will continue to get abused and killed by the OPD.

OPD Jacks Me, Then Shoots Yet Another Black Man

Witnesses say Oakland police shot man with his hands up | abc7news.com.

What’s up OPD? Living shady, I see. And I thought my experience was bad. Just 2 days ago, I called the police because I was robbed at knifepoint, and they proceeded to run MY information. They realized I had a bench warrant, and subsequently hauled my ass off to jail. Amazing you can’t even call the cops when you are robbed. Guess I should have just chalked it up as a loss. What is the world coming to when you can’t even depend on the cops to protect you? There should be laws to protect the innocent from reporting crimes, and to protect people from getting shot for their ethnicity or social status. It’s straight up bullshit when someone that is supposed to help and make sure you are safe stigmatizes and vilifies you. Still no call about the cell phone that was stolen from me. No surprise.

Chaz Bono Goes on Dancing With the Stars and Reps Transgendered People

Chaz Bono: America ‘Really Needs’ Him on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ | Reuters

Blind nationalism and religious zealotry are complete jokes. Get your head out of your ass, small-minded simpletons! What does it matter what someone’s gender preference is? Why is it any of your business? There are more pressing issues you can commit to. Like worrying about the end of the world in 2012. I can only hope that  this “end of the world” signifies an end to this increasing ignorant societal structure. Only then can we move on from pointing fingers and dirt slinging at people who are just trying to live their lives in peace. The gender and sexuality binary needs to be transformed!
