BAKERSFIELD POLICE DEPARTMENT-COMMUNITY COLLABORATIVE REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Since July 2020, I’ve served as a co-chair - with colleagues Traco Matthews, Dr. Michael Burroughs, and NaTesha Kindred Johnson - of the Bakersfield Police Department's (BPD) reform initiative. Over the past six months we've been working with a dedicated team of 26 community-minded individuals, broken up into four committees.


Made up of four committees and a team of 26 dedicated community-minded individuals, we officially submitted our report and its recommendations to the Bakersfield (California's 7th largest city) City Council and the BPD this past Friday (March 19). The reform and trust-building process is just beginning.

THE ECONOMICS OF POVERTY; YEAH, IT'S A CHOICE

The economics of poverty. It's not rocket science. It's a choice.

Walmart has chosen to dump the survivability of its workers on to the American taxpayer. In the past it was called "poor relief" in the name of parish serfdom; today it's called "food stamps" in the name of corporate welfare.

GIVE THE FLYNN BROTHER(S) THE ROSENBERG TREATMENT?

___________________________________

___________________________________

Selling state secrets and contributing to an attempted overthrow of our democracy seem oddly similar on the traitor scale, wouldn't you say? If it's true that the Flynn brothers contributed in any way to the events of January 6th we need to make an example of them. 

I say we should give them the Rosenberg treatment. Traitors.  

For those of you unfamiliar with the Rosenbergs, click here
