By Leonard Dabydeen

 

They that have such power to pull a gun

By law to protect and to serve us all,

Must watch targets they follow as they run;

And be ready without fault for a call.

Another Police Killing of a Black Unarmed Civilian – By Yvonne Sam

Another Police Killing of a Black Unarmed Civilian— The Hidden Facts behind the  Visible Acts

By Yvonne Sam

Is the police fostering racial inequality? Or is it how society is structured?

Another police shooting! Another Black harmed, once again unarmed!. Each year in America there are more than 1,000 fatal shootings by police, and the victims are inordinately black.  In 2014, the shooting death by police of unarmed teenager Michael Brown ignited country- wide protests and produced the Black Lives Matter movement.

Now the recent killing of Stephon Clark in his own backyard in Sacramento, California,  has once again given rise to the question– how much change has there been?    Continue reading

One of the strengths of the justice system is to deter and mitigate crime and punish those who violate the laws with penalties and rehabilitation. However, many believe that our justice system is flawed, in some cases biased, and woefully inadequate.      Continue reading

USA: Should Teachers Carry Guns? Absolutely Not! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Should Teachers Carry Guns? Absolutely Not!

Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

– By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The job of a teacher is to teach. It is not to have a gun strapped to his or her body. There are enough personnel in the administration that can get proper training to protect schools and students. Teachers have enough to worry about; carrying guns is the last thing that a teacher needs to be effective.

In 1988, I walked into one of the most challenging classrooms in New York City. I expected the students to be well disciplined and to follow directions.
