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)
