"It's been a long time, we shouldn't have left you,
without a good show to step to..."
Pop The Trunk, part two. Open lines and an entrepreneur guest.
Due to technical difficulties, the Saturday April 18 show was only partially recorded. We regret that, yet we still share what we do have.
Eric Harris had already surrendered, been subdued, and shot. Still, that did not stop two barbaric officers from explicitly letting a dying man know that, because of his crimes, his life was insignificant to them. They made sure Eric Harris knew he that they were in charge and that even his breathing was now under their control. And to Harris' cries for breath, the deputy on the left shouts "F*ck your breath."Posted by The Benjamin Dixon Show on Sunday, April 12, 2015
More from Benjamin Dixon - Bad Police are Small People with Big Guns and Over-Inflated Egos (Spreaker Audio, Link, Video)
More from fellow brother blogger and podcaster Benjamin Dixon:
Bad cops are protected by 'good' cops either through direct action, fear, or complacency. So I do not apologize to the good cops for what I am saying about the bad cops they should have gotten rid of a long time ago. The culture of any institution, over time, becomes one of self-preservation. Loyalty that was designed to serve the community begins to be self-serving. And so long as the leadership of the city in which these officers serve is complacent with, apathetic to, or unable or unwilling to change the culture that breeds police brutality, the problem will persist. And so, the solution is clear. We must overthrow those in power by voting them out of office and by voting in every election — especially the mayoral elections.
That is the only–yet highly effective–solution. If the city officials realize that they are only in power by virtue of our vote, then they will ensure that the police actually "protect and serve." They will ensure that a culture of mutual respect is fostered."

Benjamin Dixon Podcast - What No One is Saying About the Killings of Blacks in America (Spreaker Audio)
Podcaster Benjamin Dixon: "This is what no one is talking about with regard to the killings of black people. Some white Americans feel as though they have the right to confront us and, if we do not cower before their demands–if we don’t “humble” ourselves and comply–then they become infuriated. How dare we not instantly obey the words and instructions of these angry white men? How dare we respond to them as if we are equal. How dare we demand respect not only from thugs on the street, but also from thugs with badges. No one is talking about this because we aren’t ready to confront the glaringly obvious vestiges of Jim Crow: the idea that black people should be subservient–know their place, hold their head down, and say, “Yes Sir” and “No Sir” –whenever being instructed by any white person who wants to “teach us a lesson.”"
