#ItsBiggerThanYou's Aurielle Marie and Janetta Hill Interview on Verses (AUDIO)

Sonny Cheeba and Boog Avery had to chance to chop it up with the 19-year-olds behind the huge Atlanta rally for Mike Brown last week during their weekly show Verses. Peep the audio below!

Before today, I drew a complete blank thinking of how to approach any coverage of Mike Brown's death - let alone speaking on it at all. It took until after watching UNITED and my interview with #ItsBiggerThanYou's Aurielle Marie and Janetta Hill to realize that we must acknowledge that we sun-kissed folk are on the brink of a revolution, with no tools other than our smartphones at our disposal.

I attended the rally those two sisters put together, and after the constant chant of "upload the revolution" from Aurielle, and I am left with no choice but to leave our interview here below for you to hear, if, of course, you missed Verses last week.

Do something with your community. Learn from your peers. Prevent another Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, Sean Bell, Renisha McBride, and John Crawford by teaching our young ones ways to avoid an execution by the entire brutal police system. Educate you to educate them. Listen below.



Check out Verses with Sonny Cheeba and Boog Avery every Thursday at 7pm EST on Raw Radio via TuneIn or iTunes Radio!

Also, don't forget to check with the Facebook group It's Bigger Than You, including a panel discussion tonight at 6pm in downtown Atlanta

Suge Knight's Family Speaking Out After Shooting



Suge Knight's family is speaking out for the first time since he was shot 2 times over the weekend at a pre-VMA bash at 1OAK hosted by Chris Brown. The family released a statement to REVOLT asking for prayer, 

"The family of Suge Knight ask that you keep Suge in your prayers and to stray away from the negativity portrayed by the media. Suge is currently resting and has lost a lot of blood, he's human. He's done a lot of things for the community and the culture as a whole so we ask that you respect that."

So far no arrest has been made in connection with the shooting.

Activism: Talib Kweli And Rosa Clemente Talk About The Michael Brown Shooting And More In Ferguson,

Democracy Now is on the job and on the ground at Ferguson, with coverage and perspectives that probably won't be seen/heard in even left-leaning mainstream media. You've probably seen the brief heated encounter between CNN's Don Lemon and emcee/activist Talib Kweli. Pushed out online (a lot) because of the shock value of the argument. No ground gained, no growth in understanding; and folks didn't really communicate that even that argument ended respectfully for the most part. However, this in depth talk with Kweli and Rosa Clemente (a longtime activist, journalist, scholar, and former director of the Hip-Hop Caucus) gives us the food for thought we need. Calm, thoughtful, progressive talk about matters of substance. With a keen interest in maintaining focus on the protest movement, Kweli and Clemente joined other grassroots activists in Ferguson just before a massive march planned for Saturday in their hometown of New York City. The NYC march will be on Staten Island, seeking justice for Eric Garner, the brother who was choked to death by police last month.

Listen (and download for FREE) below as Democracy Now! producer Aaron Maté facilitates a chat with Kweli and Clemente at Ferguson's Greater St. Mark Family Church.

Punchlines That Sting: John Oliver Delivers Biting Commentary On The Mike Brown Shooting And Subsequ



John Oliver put on a clinic on how you deliver stinging social commentary as thinly veiled comedy. VERY thinly veiled. On the last episode of his Last Week Tonight show on HBO, he spent a huge chunk of the show talking all things Ferguson. The delivery vehicle - a satirical news-formatted TV broadcast - puts viewers (except for hardened Conservatives dead set against the Liberal-leaning Brit they know from Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Jon Stewart) in a hey-you-gotta-be-able-to-laugh-at-things mode to start. He expertly pulls some chuckles in his segment about the recent events - Mike Brown's fatal shooting by Ferguson (Missouri) cops, the brutality and militarization of American police departments, etc. But he kept raising the temperature on the presentation until his beef with the entire situation was well cooked. Smoke. Fire. BURN!

Sure, we laugh. But it ain't funny. John knows...and he let the viewer know he knows this is some bullsh!t.

Here's the thing the mayor [of Ferguson] doesn't understand. No one should ever be allowed to say, "There is no history of racial tension here." Because that sentence has never been true anywhere on Earth!

White Neighbor Shoots 8-Year-Old Because 'he wanted to.'

    

The shooting of a child always leaves a community in pain and disbelief. Think about it for a moment. A child simply wants to play and have fun. No matter who the child is, there's a common thread among children called joy, happiness, love, and innocence. Under no circumstances should a child be forced to live and endure a nightmare.

Unfortunately, 8-year-old Donald Maiden, Jr known as D.J. is suffering his own nightmare after being shot in the face by a neighbor outside an apartment complex in Dallas. D.J. was playing tag outside when 46-year-old, Brian Cloninger, a white man shot little D.J. When police asked Cloninger why he shot D.J., he told police, 'he wanted to.' Words cannot express how his behavior has triggered outrag within the community and for those who are following this story.

D.J., as you can imagine, had to undergo major surgery. He was hooked up to machines and breathing tubes. A metal plate and wire mesh were used to hold his jaw together. "

D.J. still has a tracheotomy tube in his neck to help him breathe, and is due for reconstructive surgery on March 10, but he is functioning normally as anyone could expect an 8-year-old was shot for seemingly no reason to function."

Even though D.J. will face many surgeries to repair the physical damage, the emotional and psychological damage will not easily go away. D.J.'s mother, Monique Locklin says that her son fears that Cloninger will get out of jail to return to hurt him or somebody else. D.J. tries to avoid talking about the shooting and his family is supportive of that. .


With regard to Cloninger, he is still in jail and no trial date has been set. The family wants him to receive the maximum so that justice can be brought to D.J.

This is definitely a sad story. I want to caution you after reading this, the heinous act of one person cannot bring judgment on a group of people

Four People Shot At Church, Including A 12-Year Old Boy

    

Once again, gun violence has targeted another community. On Monday before 6pm, a gunman opened fire at a local basketball court in Rocky Mount, North Carolina behind the sanctuary of Word Tabernacle Church critically injuring one boy. Three others were hit, treated, and released. However, the one critically injured is 12-year-old, Nyreek Horne.

According to Rev. James Gailliard, the Pastor of Word Tabernacle Church, there were more than 15 gunshots before he ran outside. When he arrived outside, he saw Horne bleeding and went over to help the boy until help arrived. The bullet hit Nyreek in the eye and went out the back of his brain.

Rev. Gailliard said, 'in our community, we do hear gunshots from time to time. But what was different this time was that it was so close and it was so many. I held him in my arms until the paramedics got there.' As of Tuesday, Horne remained in critical condition.

Rocky Mount police have a vague description of the shooter. They are asking for anyone who has information about the shooting to contact local authorities.

Rocky Mount is a city with roughly 60,000 residents. It is located about 50 miles east of Raleigh, which sits along Interstate 95. Its location makes it a prime target for moving drugs and illegal guns between East Coast Cities. "In 2012, the most recent year for which FBI crime statistics are available, the homicide rate in Rocky Mount was more than twice that of New York City."

Without a doubt, Rocky Mount is facing many of the same problems other larger cities are facing. Rev. Gailliard moved from Philadelphia to Rocky Mount to start his church. He and the church are involved with working with people in the community.

Questions surrounding whether the shooting was in retaliation to gang violence that happened recently in the area is currently being investigated.

A community that is troubled is looking for answers. A vigil was organized on Tuesday to pray for Horne's recovery and to put an end to violence.

Police: 2 store employees, gunman dead at Maryland mall

    
Police: 2 store employees, gunman dead at Maryland mall

(CNN) -- A gunman strapped with large amounts of ammunition Saturday shot and killed two workers at a busy Columbia, Maryland, mall before turning a shotgun on himself, police said.

The shooting, which also left five others injured, capped a violent week which saw shootings or gun scares at American schools or shopping centers -- ordinary places where people once felt safe.

"This should not happen at the Columbia Mall," Howard County Police Chief Bill McMahon told reporters. "This shouldn't happen anywhere."

McMahon told reporters that the shooter apparently fatally shot a man and woman -- both store employees -- before shooting himself in a store on the second floor of The Mall in Columbia. The motive was unclear.

Police identified the dead employees as Brianna Benlolo, 21, of College Park, and Tyler Johnson, 25, of Ellicott City. Both worked at Zumiez, a shop that caters to skaters, where the shootings took place

The body of the unidentified suspected shooter was found near a shotgun on the floor of Zumiez, police said. A large amount of ammunition was found near the body, leading investigators to suspect that he might be carrying explosives.

The first 911 call about the shooting came at about 11:15 a.m. and officers were in the mall within two minutes, police said.

It started out as a routine day in busy mall

The shooting "seems to have been very contained to that store and the area just outside," McMahon told reporters.

Gov. Martin O'Malley said in a statement: "On behalf of the people of Maryland, I want to express my deepest condolences to the families of the victims and all those affected by this senseless act of violence. Protecting the public's safety is our most solemn obligation."

Police entered the mall within minutes of the first 911 calls and found three people dead. The scene was secure shortly before 1 p.m., police said.

Investigators said there were thousands of people in the mall at the time, with many hiding in fear behind store counters, in restrooms or fitting rooms for hours after the shooting stopped.

"Think about this, on a Saturday afternoon at the mall, how many people may be in there," McMahon said. "Something like this happens and people run in many directions, and they also do what we train them to do -- to shelter in place."

A federal official briefed on the shooting told CNN that preliminary information indicates the shooting may have been related to a domestic dispute. Police, however, said haven't yet reached that determination, saying investigators have not even determined whether the shooter and victims knew each other.

"We have no knowledge of that," McMahon said. "We do not know yet what caused the incident."

Five people from were transported to Howard County General Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said in a statement. They were treated and later released.

One patient had a gunshot wound to the foot; the others suffered injuries after the shooting. McMahon said one person had a seizure, another a sprained ankle.

In a statement, management of the mall said: "Our hearts & prayers are with everyone in the Columbia community. The Mall in Columbia will remain closed for the remainder of the day . ... Please keep the community in your thoughts and prayers."

A statement from Zumiez, the store where the shooting occurred, said management was arranging counseling for other employees.

"We are deeply saddened by the violence that has occurred this morning within our store in Maryland at The Mall in Columbia," the statement said. "Our hearts go out to the victims and their families."

Employees told CNN the gunfire erupted near a second-floor food court in the late morning, sending shoppers and workers running for cover.

A gunman opened fire at a high school in Colorado on Friday, seriously wounding a fellow student before killing himself, authorities said.

A third student was injured and was reported in good condition. It wasn't immediately clear whether that student was shot.

The shooter, a male student, said he was looking for a specific teacher by name when the incident began about 12:30 p.m. (2:30 p.m. ET) at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said. Robinson said investigators knew his identity and were talking to his family.

A second student confronted the gunman, who shot and seriously wounded the youth, Robinson said.
