Prison Abolition in the Age of Coronavirus

In the Prison Abolition Movement, it is a well-known fact that Police have a shared history with Slave Catching. There was a need to capture runaway slaves in metropolitan areas before that there was no need for police. Most of the lynchings of Jim Crow South were well attended and represented by police and how enforcement is distributed today is reflection of that history. Too many police and prison guards are former military to ignore the link to the prison industrial complex. Read More »

Radicalisation

On the history of radicalization in the Western context. It can be argued that Saul of Tarsus is the first Lone Wolf radical.  A Lone Wolf that emerges remotely of a movement. Radical because of a desperation and immediacy to change. After Paul there is a line of Christian radicals. But having had little to do with the original movement ... Read More »

Fake News

In 2012 I wrote an entry about Julian Assange and Russia Today (RT). At the time, observing activism in New York City and online, I saw something dubious going on with activists use of social media stemming from Russia and even Iran as Press TV. Well meaning people were lending themselves to foreign intelligence and thus saturating their good intentions. ... Read More »

Violence & Non-Lethal Weapons

The arguments that have been circulating in opposition to non-lethal weapons have rung in terms of how-dangerous-non-lethal weapons-are. These arguments lack teeth.

Non-lethal weapons are dangerous, but more than that, they multiply violence by incapacitating  subjects. Stephen Coleman ... Read More »

Vanessa Guillen: MST Martyr?

Vanessa Guillen was bludgeoned with a hammer, on base, in the armory, her remains were removed in a box. Several people saw, now deceased due to suicide, Aaron Robinson struggling with the box the night Vanessa disappeared. Guillen was a private and Robinson was a specialist. They both worked in the armory but in the army that small rank difference means a lot, and many, (if not most) exploit that. Read More »

George Floyd’s Body

An independent autopsy commissioned by the Floyd family revealed that George Floyd was murdered and contradicted the state’s autopsy that claimed that George Floyd’s comorbidity had lead to his death. After the families autopsy went public the state followed suit. What this also revealed is that if George Floyd didn’t have anyone to claim him, no one that witnessed the ... Read More »

Tucker Carlson is Basic

I don’t know smart people who call people stupid. Tucker Carlson’s talking points usually have a lampooning target. Fox News has been the most popular news network in the country since 2014 and in the lineage of the disgraced Bill O’Reilly there is always an attempt to position viewpoints as if they are outliers. Carlson masquerades as provoking thought but ... Read More »
