Mexico Cartel, Kidnapping
Missing Students
Missing Kids
Missing Women
And they didn’t jump the border, people. This little country is more violent than Isis for crying out loud.
Now it’s time to start a conversation to transform Mexico into a peaceful place to be.

The disappearance of 43 Mexican students after they were abducted by corrupt police working with drug cartel gunmen shocked the world for the scale and severity of the crime. But the atrocity is only one part of a much larger tragedy of people going missing in Mexico.

Now humans, no one cared when the cartel was taking hookers, but now they’re taking kids.  Well, it’s not the first time, but it is HIGH time that something was done about it.  Now the question is … how to bring peace to this volatile little country that makes ISIS look civilized.   

Here’s a good video that could be helpful in starting this conversation and if this doesn’t spark a solution for you then go to http://www.earthspeaksout.com and post your own solution there.  

Jupiter knows I need it!  I mean YOU need it!  

Up to 100,000 people died in drug-related violence in Mexico in the last 6 years. We might think this has nothing to do with us, but in fact we are all complicit, says Yale professor Rodrigo Canales in this unflinching talk that turns conventional wisdom about drug cartels on its head. The carnage is not about faceless, ignorant goons mindlessly killing each other but is rather the result of some seriously sophisticated brand management.

Texas is a funny state.  Instead of reforming their prisoners and helping the sick people to become useful members of me they instead capture their prisoners, lock them up, get them raped every day and then when it’s time – they execute them or they set them free so they can go out and rape civilians and most likely kill them – because if I am not mistaken – isn’t that what prison reform is all about in Texas?

COPS CALL 2ND GRADERS AND SCHOOL ANTI-POLICE – AND WHY? WELL, THE COPS KEEP KILLING LITTLE KIDS. THAT’S WHY!

Here’s the story  –  Second graders stage Ferguson protest during recess as local cop accuses the school of being ‘anti-police’ | Daily Mail Online.

Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 9.58.02 AM

Officer George Borden says he found out about the protest after a friend noticed his seven-year-old daughter among the protesters. He has accused the school of being ‘anti-police’

Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 10.02.40 AM

Borden told WHDH that the note was ‘horrific to me’ and that his daughter asked him, ‘Daddy, do you shoot people?’  He is demanding an apology from his daughter’s teacher.

Now here is what Earth has to say about all this:

So, Borden, you really don’t think your police department and the training tactics need reform?  

Are you sincerely happy with the way things are in your department?  What do you think about the Aiyana Stanley – Jones case only a few months ago? She was 7 years old and murdered by a cop in a police raid – while she was sleeping.  

This is out of control.  This is what we are fighting for. To stop these monsters from anymore.  This is despicable.
This is out of control. This is what we are fighting for. To stop these monsters from anymore. This is despicable.

 Borden, this could have been your own daughter.  The same age.  But you think the school owes YOU and the police department an apology?  I think you and the police departments across America should be ashamed of yourselves for not being the FIRST ones to step up and DEMAND police reform in the midst of these multiple disasters that have been taking place one after another all over the United States.

Police are only trained to KILL.  If you are proud of this you need to get some therapy and some help.  Your daughter asked you a question – “Do you kill people for a living?” and you are upset at someone else about this?  The truth is that as of now that is exactly what you have been trained to do, Borden.  

The police tactics and training procedures are out of date and they are dangerous.  They are barbaric and primitive.  Police with integrity should be standing together and STRIKING until the government allots a budget to properly train you guys to perform arrests without killing or intensely harming your suspects.  

I am also confused as to why you would want mentally ill and trigger happy cops on your force.

Cops that are out there beating to death and shooting to death innocent civilians all over America.  

And by the way this includes black, white, Mexican, Asian, and Muslims.  

Did you know a person is more likely to be killed by a cop than a terrorist in the United States?  And you still want an apology?

I’ll give you an apology then: I am sorry that you ever became a cop and that anyone ever gave you a badge because you obviously don’t stand behind protect and serve.  Instead it seems that the logo for cops is “Shoot To Kill.”

People, keep protesting!  Don’t back down.  

Change is happening so don’t back down until a civilized and pro-human training program is set up for Police Departments all across the country.

Sydney Sheikh Haron Was Charged in Ex-Wife’s Torching Murder

Sydney Sheikh Haron Was Charged in Ex-Wife’s Torching Murder

What can I say about this, people? This sort of violence is spreading across me like a wildfire these days. But there is a way to stop it and just like the people marching all over America for police reform, America can now really evaluate itself and how its tactics in interrogation, police training and military training has only begat more violence and less peace. If you want peace you will have to learn how to communicate and how to be fair. You will have to figure out a way to reprogram people like Sydney here who finally believed that violence was his only answer. Start teaching the world an alternative and watch what happens. Oh, that means you people have to come up with alternatives. Start brainstorming because this disease of terror is not going away until you treat it.

TIME

More than a year before the Sydney hostage siege, Man Haron Monis was arrested for accessory to the murder of his ex-wife — who was repeatedly stabbed and set on fire — and then released on bail.

“They should have put him away and thrown away the key,” said Ayyut Khalik, godfather to the slain woman, Noleen Hayson Pal.

Khalik said Pal, 31, was like one of his own children. He traveled from California to Australia for her 16th birthday, for her wedding to Monis in 2005 and for her funeral…

CHANGE IS COMING – BUT WHERE IS THE JUSTICE FOR AIYANA STANLEY-JONES?

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — With tensions running high over the killings of blacks by police, departments around the country are changing policies and procedures to curb the use of deadly force, ease public distrust and protect officers from retaliation.Screen Shot 2014-12-15 at 4.28.20 PM

New York City plans to issue stun guns to hundreds more officers. The Milwaukee department is making crisis-intervention training mandatory. And in Akron, Ohio, police have begun working in pairs on all shifts for their own safety.

Police departments are constantly updating training. But some of the more recent measures have been prompted by rising anger toward police. And in some cases, departments are making sure to let the public know about these changes.

This is a story worth reading so click on it.  The police are out of control.  Total reform is essential.  They need to learn to perform arrests without murdering suspects.  They are beating and killing all colors and races of people. They are completely out of control and everyone knows it.  The police are barbaric and their arrest procedures are insane, not to mention all the innocent people they keep killing.  In the midst of this horror – see this little girl here – Aiyana Stanley-Jones – Remember her name: Aiyana Stanley-Jones

HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE IN YOUR AMERICA??? KEEP MARCHING! 

Charges Dropped For Cop Who Fatally Shot Sleeping 7-Year-Old Girl – Aiyana Stanley-Jones – Remember her name.

In all of the melee resulting from the shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson, the media has overlooked a number of other very important shootings of unarmed civilians by police officers. One of the most egregious offenses is that of Officer Joseph Weekley’s fatal shooting of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones.

Officer Weekley recently saw manslaughter charge dropped against him, for shooting the 7-year-old while she slept.

The Detroit police officer had been on trial for involuntary manslaughter who was shot and killed during a 2010 police raid.

But early in October, Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway granted a motion which Weekley’s attorney had filed, arguing for the dismissal of the felony charge he faced in the young girl’s death.

The trial was brought to an end while the Michigan Court of Appeals reviewed an emergency appeal of the ruling.

Presiding Judge Michael Talbot issued the order to deny the appeal and allow the judge’s dismal to stand.

“Although I find that the trial court erred in form and substance in granting defendant’s motion for directed verdict, we are barred from reviewing that decision,” Talbot wrote.

The shooting happened just after midnight, back on May 16, 2010.

A SWAT team had conducted a raid to search for a murder suspect. Weekly ended up being first through the door.

There was even a film crew on hand to film for a reality show about murder investigations. Weekley says that another SWAT member had thrown a flash-bang grenade, which temporarily blinded him. That’s when he fired the shot that killed Aiyana who was asleep on the couch in the front room of the house.

Doubling down on this claim, in court he actually testified that Aiyana’s grandmother had somehow “touched” his gun, which made him fire the shot. But he failed to explain how he could tell she had done this when he claimed he couldn’t see anything at the time.

The prosecution noted that even having his finger on the trigger of his submachine gun was improper. “He could have avoided injury if he had followed his training,” Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Robert Moran explained.

“He didn’t, and as a result of him not following his training and not following the mandates of ordinary care, someone was killed.”

But ultimately, the arguments and reason didn’t win out.

Roland Lawrence, the chairman of the Justice for Aiyana Committee, issued a statement after the court’s decision was announced.

“Surely, the death of a baby by a well-trained police force must be deemed unacceptable in a civilized society,” Lawrence said.

Steve Fishman, Weekley’s attorney, claimed that even though he did not dispute that his client pulled the trigger and killed the girl, “there is absolutely no evidence, none, that’s in the least bit credible, that Officer Weekley knowingly created a danger or, more importantly, intended to cause injury.”

After the dismissal, the only charge Weekley faced, was a relatively minor misdemeanor charge of “careless discharge of a firearm causing death.”

So one story shows that change is coming and this story of Aiyana Stanley-Jones show a society that has deteriorated to the point that it’s police have absolutely no reverence for life when it comes to catching a suspect.  They will kill anyone. I am glad they are finally taking steps to change this – but what about Aiyana Stanley-Jones?  What about Aiyana Stanley-Jones who was only 7 years old?  How can we remember her and honor her short little innocent life?  

We can honor it by making the LAWMAKERS name her in their new laws to protect the innocent from police.   Read this whole story and read what they are doing.  Perhaps you can improve upon these changes and perhaps you can bring even better solutions to the table.  

Work together with your friends and family to bring these solutions forward.  People are ready and even the police are ready for change now.  It’s not fun being the bad guys.  These cops need help and the dead need to be honored. 

Earth Speaks Out.

Now you can read the police changes and reform here:  http://countercurrentnews.com/2014/11/aiyana-stanley-jones/

— In Philadelphia, Mayor Michael Nutter is urging police in a video message to use force only “if absolutely necessary.”

— The Obama administration issued guidelines this month that restrict the ability of federal law enforcement agencies to profile on the basis of religion, national origin and other certain characteristics. The Justice Department hopes those measures become a model for local departments.

Several police forces were updating their practices even before the Ferguson and New York deaths, with some departments issuing body cameras to officers.

After Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey arrived in 2008, for example, the department began placing police shooting statistics on the Web for the sake of openness and started a pilot program involving body cameras.
