We don’t even really get to choose the person who chooses the people who dictate the highest law of the land. That might sound confusing – and it is. It’s even more frustrating. The Supreme Court is a wildly undemocratic institution that even our own Constitution doesn’t condone. Plus, a new level of secrecy and non-transparency has clouded an already opaque confirmation process. And before we ask survivors why they didn’t report, we should take a look at some of the reasons why they don’t – and address them in our own communities.
PLUS, Code Pink’s latest report outlines the 5 biggest weapons contractors in the US and their nefarious dealings that perpetuate endless war.
OUR INTERVIEW this week: A teaser of our longer interview with Kristian Williams, author of the book, Our Enemies in Blue which traces the history of the police from slave patrols to our present-day militarized force. It also discusses alternatives to policing and how communities have and could address public health without the use of police. (NOTE: the full interview will air on our podcast this Friday)
