Why is it that a police officer can shoot someone in cold blood and only have to resign rather than face a first degree murder charge? When will the world understand that this behavior is not ok. The Police are corrupt. I hate to say that but its true. R.I.P our so called protectors. SMH #stoptheviolence#policebrutality

In the David Byrne book ‘How Music Works’ is an ad that appeared in the New York Times and @rollingstone which the author put together and garnered support from other artists for before the United States entered Iraq in the early 2000’s. Pretty cool to see so many awesome artists trying to work to help prevent unnecessary conflict. The artists include @tboneburnettofficial @ericbenet @bustarhymes @davidbyrneofficial @caponeqb4life @therealnoreaga @yolikegeorge @sherylcrow @anidifranco @steveearle @missymisdemeanorelliott @brianeno @fatjoe @emmylou_harris.1 @natalie_imbruglia JAY-Z @angeliquekidjo @kronos_quartet @massiveattackofficial @davematthewsband @nataliemerchant @mobbdeephavoc @nas @outkast @pharoahemonch @loureedofficial @rem @raphael_saadiq @skmtgram @unclerush @sonicyouthofficial @davidsylvian @therealsuzannevega @caetanoveloso @wilco @lucinda_williams @zapmamaofficial #war#stoptheviolence#reading#readabook#howmusicworks#davidbyrne#legend#learning#peace#warisbad#givepeaceachance#iraq#unitedstates#toronto#music#artist#artists#art#love#united#hiphop#rnb#rockandroll#makeadifference

GUN VIOLENCE BREAKDOWN Gun violence takes numerous forms, contributing to suicides, homicides, unintentional deaths, and law enforcement killings, as well as serious injuries. Any effort to save lives must include solutions that address the unique aspects of each of these categories of gun violence. Of the 36,383 Americans killed with guns each year,8 22,274 are gun suicides (61%), 12,830 are gun homicides (35%), 496 are law enforcement shootings (1.4%), and 487 are unintentional shootings (1.3%).9 On average, 100,000 Americans are wounded with guns each year,10 often with life-altering consequences. Roughly three-quarters of nonfatal shootings are gun assaults. About a fifth are unintentional shootings. Very few nonfatal shootings are suicide attempts—less than 5%—and between 1 and 2% are shootings by law enforcement. ##gunviolence#homicides#policekillings#justiceforall#victims#suicide#rape#schoolshootings#massshootings#stoptheviolence#blackhustlemagazine
