“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievance.”

Do you want people to obey the police?

There’s a solution. Stop requiring people to disobey the police in order to exercise their rights. Make a search without a warrant or probable cause illegal even if someone “consents” to the search. Make it illegal for a police officer to request that someone do something if they’re not legally required to do it.

“We hear that term a lot. But what does it really mean, huh? What’s its definition? It doesn’t have one. It’s what we think, and as much as what we think, what we feel. And what we feel and what you feel will determine what happens to the rest of this young man’s life.
Thank you.”

I think there is a pound of flesh owed in terms of this country making sure all of its citizens enjoy the constitutional rights that are promised. And because we don’t, we keep resetting to the same place of anger and fear and angst and explosions of that. The dead don’t rest. The soul’s gonna speak, based on the fact that this country is still not offering full justice.

What the last 48 hours told us about Trump's next 4 years
President-elect Donald Trump went nose-to-nose Wednesday with a press corps itching to cross-examine him after more than five months at arm's length, while his top nominees faced off with senators during a strategic crush of confirmation hearings.

  2. Trump’s Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, is so supportive of Russia and Trump’s buddy Vladimir Putin that he refuses to condemn Russia’s murdering journalists and bombing civilians.
  3. Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, will not pursue alleged civil rights violations by police and police departments.
  4. FBI director James Comey, asked whether the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign’s alleged contacts with Russia, refused to comment: “Especially in a public forum, we never confirm or deny a pending investigation.” (Except, of course, when it’s Hillary Clinton.)

Chicago Police Department engaged in rampant abuses, DOJ says

  • Officers in the Chicago Police Department routinely used excessive and deadly force that violated subjects’ constitutional rights, according to a U.S. Department of Justice report released Friday.
  • The investigation found that officers engaged in a pattern or practice of abuses that federal officials attributed to “deficiencies” in how the CPD trains, investigates and punishes officers on the use of force.
  • Racist conduct is also prevalent among some CPD officers — behavior that was tolerated because of the deficiencies in the CPD’s systems of training, supervision and accountability, the DOJ said in a statement.
  • The report details alleged racial slurs that officers used against city residents. Read more

You Don’t Have to let the #Police in…

We’re #thankful to be the home of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill Of Rights. 

And we are thankful that 363 days a year (we’re closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day), visitors can come to the National Archives Building in Washington, DC, and see these founding documents on display.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Currently, In Power, is a Majority of people who believe that certain Americans should not exercise their Constitutional Rights, whether it be in their homes, in a workplace, in a House of Worship, or in the voting booth.

These people cannot be permitted to remain In Power!
