#myNYPD Campaign Inspires Global Awareness Of Police Brutality

April 24, 2014- As reported on April 22nd, NYPD News had asked Twitter followers to share photos of themselves with the NYPD accompanied by the hashtag #myNYPD. This request resulted in a public relations nightmare for the department, as Twitter became filled with different images of the NYPD engaged in police brutality.

 

 

These images are a glimpse of  police brutality and criminality against the very citizens and people police are paid to protect.  Clearly, the police are not our friends nor is their job to serve and protect the public. The latter is a myth of gigantic proportion–a real fallacy!

View the Police At Work–Abusive and Sinister!

The police are a big problem, some would say a menace to society.  What are we to do about them?   The police serve the elite and in return for their service to the elite, they brutalize communities with impunity.  What can we do about police brutality and dishonest courts?

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead
