People Rise Up Radio - stop stop and frisk

014 – People Rise Up Radio – Stop Stop And Frisk!

 

Originally aired 08/13/13 on Occupy the Media Collective

A tight and timeless episode of People Rise Up Radio that totally ROCKED the house! Smart discussion of stop & frisk with great musical selections. LISTEN NOW!!!

 

CounterSpin – mainstream media hypes terrorism to bolster NSA surveillance, US protects dictatorial criminals, media pushes military budgetary woes, ted koppell take on terrorism fear mongering at odds with previous comments, Soledad O’Brien calls-out media on shitty political coverage.

SONG – Dump The Bosses Off Your Back (Utah Phillips & Ani Difranco)

DISCUSSION – Media portrays Stop & Frisk ruling as “unconstitutional” despite the fact that judge ruled such policies ARE in-fact constitutional. Plaintiffs failed by asking only for meager REFORMS to the policy and not its abolition entirely.

SONG - No Justice (Smith & Mighty)

PARODY – Beware! Armed gangs in your neighborhood

SONG- Revolutionary Beat (Flipsyde)

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS – Stop & Frisk Special Edition

Shoot, Kill, Spin, Repeat
A look at police propaganda.

Shoot, Kill, Spin, Repeat

Shoot, Kill, Spin, Repeat - A look at the standard playbook of America’s murderous police.

It’s a story we see all too often… Police shoot and kill someone, release photos or videos with strategically placed red circles, and the media dutifully perpetuates how the police have framed what it is we think the photos or videos show us.

Longview PD use enhanced media to frame events.

The most recent case of murder at the hands of police and selective, post-murder propaganda, is the case of 17 year-old Kristiana Coignard. Kristiana was shot and killed in the lobby of the Longview Police Department on January 22nd in Longview, Texas. Police released the video, without audio, on January 28th only after a campaign launched by the hacktivist collective Anonymous under the hashtag Operation Stop Lethal Force On Children (#OpSLFOC).
