As someone who’s had to deal with police brutality, I’m all for this initiative. I think that police oversight is very important because even though I think most police are doing the best they can at a challenging job the people who are abusive need to be held accountable and weeded out. – Shepard

Why Elizabeth Warren Needs to Run for President

Lawrence Lessig has been a friend and inspiration for several years. I read his book “Remix” and I was fascinated to read his case for cultural richness and evolution based on creative exception to copyright and Fair Use. Lessig argues that the evolving legal interpretation of copyright to favor corporate interests is an unfortunate by-product of current campaign finance structure or what Lessig calls “legal corruption.” Of course, legalized corruption is the source of many problems including lack of pollution regulations and financial industry oversight. Check out Lessig’s powerful presentation on “legal corruption.” I think Elizabeth Warren is a crusader for justice and I absolutely understand why Lessig would back her, but this talk is worth watching regardless of who you back for president.

Mysterious death of Freddie Gray / police brutality

If you’ve been following what is going on in Baltimore, you know that there have been protests and unrest in response to Freddie Gray’s mysterious death as a result of his arrest by police that left his voice box crushed and 80% of his spine severed. Some people want to focus on poor behavior by protesters and broken windows instead of the systemic issues with the police and economic injustice. The son of the owner of the Baltimore Orioles and COO of the organization made a courageous statement looking at the root causes of the unrest. Like him, I’m a firm believer in non-violence, but he makes great points about the sources of struggle and frustration in Baltimore and other cities across America.
