Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

NY Grand Jury Probes Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. Amidst Broad Allegations of Police Misconduct

Thursday is the birthday of Kenneth Chamberlain Sr., the former Marine who was killed in his own home in White Plains, New York, by police after they were called when he accidentally activated his medical alert system. Chamberlain would have turned 69 years old. Today, a grand jury is set to begin reviewing evidence to see if the police committed a crime. We air part two of our recent interview with Kenneth Chamberlain’s son, Kenneth Chamberlain Jr., and the family’s lawyers, Mayo Bartlett and Abdulwali Muhammad. Bartlett discusses the latest in the case, and describes other cases of alleged police misconduct in White Plains, including individuals in a separate case who say officers beat them after they were booked them for a minor offense. "The police actually put hoods over their heads, similar to the way Lynndie England placed hoods over the individuals’ heads in Abu Ghraib. And they had anti-Muslim and anti-Arab sentiments stated toward them by the White Plains Police Department," says Bartlett, the former chief of the Bias Crimes Unit of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office and the former chair of the Westchester County Human Rights Commission.  From: http://ping.fm/YlP4S
