Police run feel-good PR campaign while criminalizing Black August

August 11, 2016

Last week I was alerted to an inflammatory story from Bay Area ABC news reporter Dan Noyes that basically sought to disparage the Black August commemorations. The story noted that “police sources” had leaked an FBI bulletin to him stating that prison guards and police were going to be attacked by members of the Black Guerilla Family in commemoration of Black August. Many found the allegations to be outlandish. Black August is a month that is held to high esteem by many in the Black community who celebrate the resistance movements that have long been a part of our history for the past 300 years.

July 7, 2009

What was amazing about the hearing Monday was the prosecution’s admission that it didn’t have enough evidence to convict these men.

That language did not pass his lips.
