Prince Releases Baltimore Protest Song

Prince has released a direct hit to the terrifying and brutal police in the United States with his new single, ‘Baltimore.’

In case you were holed up somewhere in a cave of denial, the police in this country are engaged in a merciless war against non-whites who are not wealthy. Police in many instances simply shoot people in the back as they are fleeing, stretch them out on the ground and fire bullets into them, strangle them to death with bare hands, or break their necks completely in half.

There are no good police. If there were, you would see some of them restraining cops who have just committed murder in front of them. You would see these nonexistent good police exposing racist killer coworkers and refusing to work with them. You would see police forming their own protests against police violence. You would see police hold ceremonies to mourn innocent victims of police murder.

You don’t see it do you?

There are no good police in the United States. Those days are long gone.

Prince fights with a guitar. Not a gun. But these days, the police can just walk onto a rock & roll stage and blow away the singer right in front of an oblivious audience.

How Can Sidewalk Chalk Art Be Illegal?

I took this today in downtown Los Angeles' Pershing Square where Occupy protesters intend to make more chalk art tonight. Last month protesters were attacked by police in riot gear simply because they were drawing on sidewalks. Apparently the legal scholars at the LAPD think the use of children's chalks made by Crayola is illegal when an adult is doing the drawing. As protests go it seems to me that chalking is one of the less obnoxious. I have read that courts nationwide are dismissing these chalking cases. Prosecutors in LA have refused to press charges against those recently arrested by our inexplicably cranky police.
It's really okay, officer! Seriously. Just enjoy all the pretty pictures and move along. It all washes off in the rain.

Police in Anaheim California Attack Children at Protest


People gathered to protest suspicious shootings by the Anaheim, California police and were brutally attacked by police wielding non-lethal weapons which included a dog being sent in at children. There simply comes an obvious time in the life of a civilized nation when the people must stand back and take a very good look at the savages that have been allowed to overrun police departments.
