She said that Castile told the officer he was carrying a permitted firearm and had been reaching for his wallet before the officer opened fire. (NY Daily News)
We woke up this morning to see that again another person of color lost their lives to, by the looks of the cell-phone footage, over zealous officers of the law. Early Tuesday morning 37-year old Alton Sterling was killed by officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It's reported that he had permission to sell CDs outside a convenience store when officers responded to a call that a man was brandishing a gun in the area. The footage shows two officers bringing Sterling to the ground when one of them yells that he had a gun. Sterling was shot multiple times in the chest and in the back. If you're comforted by the fact that the FBI Civil Rights Division and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Louisiana have opened a civil rights investigation into his death, don't be. Freddy Gray, Sean Bell, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, the list goes on of investigations into the death of black individuals by the hands of cops that yielded no justice and little recourse for the officers. I had a conversation not too long ago with a young military veteran who was trying to join the police force of Camden, NJ. He couldn't understand why he was told that Camden City residents got priority over military veterans. Camden has had the highest crime rate in the United States and is also my hometown. I tried to explain that officers of the city need to have some sort of rapport with the community they serve. That conversation was very much in my mind today as the news and details Alton Sterling's death become known. Sterling had been carrying a gun but according to Muflahi, the owner of the convenience store Sterling sold CDs in front of for years, he did so only out of protection after a friend was robbed. I don't know if the officers were residents of Sterling's neighborhood or city but I feel like if they were he wouldn't have lost his life. Sterling was called "The CD Man" in his hood and everyone knew him- Would the officers with a rapport with the community shoot the CD Man in a open-carry state? Whether or not cities start giving residents preference when hiring, one thing is for certain, officers that don't follow protocol, use obsessive force, or just plain leave their common sense at home need to be held accountable. We are imagining these injustices. This will never end if there are no convictions, where is the deterrent to stop killing our black men and women. We are praying for Atlon Sterling's friends, family, and especially his brave wife and young children.

Jody Ray Thompson got into an argument with another man and shot at a crowd outside Playoffz nightclub Sunday morning, police said. He was shot in the leg in self-defense by a concealed carrier. The nightclub shooting you wont hear much about... why not? Well you see, it was stopped by a concealed-carrier.Last weekend, a man allegedly got into an altercation with another man and fired his gun several times into the crowd that had gathered outside a club in SC.He wounded three victims and almost hit a fourth, a concealed-carry permit holder, who drew his own weapon in self-defense and neutralized the shooter with a single shot.http://kfor.com/.../shooter-strikes-3-in-south-carolina-nigh.../

Thoughts on the Orlando shooting, alligator attack on 2 year old toddler , gun laws and more topics on The Dee Hill Radio Show. Listen to a recent broadcast of The Dee Hill Radio Show with Sean Garvey and friends streaming now on beatbreakradiofm.com!
On "Who Shot Me?" which was said-maybe apocryphally-to have been recorded the day after the shooting, posits the idea that he was set up by friends. On opener "Don't Come to L.A.," he makes the uniquely Angeleno threat to "catch your ass slipping at the BET Awards." My Krazy Life was a day-in-the-life narrative stitched together by conversations with YG's mom; on Still Brazy, news clips about the murder attempt to serve a similar purpose. (Complex)
"That was some inside type, somebody-was-really-coming-to-get-me type shit," YG says with hazy disbelief. "It was like niggas knew where we was at, and they was coming to do what they was supposed to do." (The FADER)
"We ain't gon' speak on 'em, we ain't go give 'em no fame. I ain't gon' shed no light on they careers, or they life, or whatever the f*ck they doing," YG continues. "I feel like this: Los Angeles County is sick right now. It's bad. Everybody mad out here right now. All the young motherf*ckers, they getting money, they motivated. We had something to do with that because we came up. It brought opportunity for motherf*ckers and shed more light on the West Coast." (The FADER)
Tragic is the word that describes the horrific events that occurred this weekend. Authorities are still trying to make sense of the shootings, thwarted acts of terrorism, a family found dead, and a murderer still on the loose.
Time Line Of This Weekend's Gun Violence:

As predicted this weekend's crime spree has sparked conversations about gun reform and provided a platform that GOP nominee Donald Trump just couldn't resist. In interviews this morning Trump not only implied that President Obama not only may have known about the massacre in Orlando before hand but may be somehow involved! Now is the time when we should be coming together and helping the families heal and working on better, tighter gun reform not exploiting the tragedies for political gain. But would you expect anything less from The Donald?
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones affected by this weekend's events.
President Obama just addressed the nation on the tragic Orlando shooting ... and vowed to make all resources available to aid the FBI in their investigation. Obama said the shooting carried out by Omar Mateen is not only a tragedy to…
