The three students — Alexis Briggs, from Huntington, Ariel Agudio, from Elmira Heights, and Asha Burwell, from Huntington Station — will be charged with third-degree assault, police said. Agudio and Burwell will also be charged for falsely reporting the incident.

The women, who are all 20 and African-American, claimed on Jan. 30 that up to a dozen white classmates spewed racial insults and ganged up on them on a bus.

America’s Shameful and Expanding Sub-Culture of African American Violence, Child Abuse & Neglect

Take Pride In Parenting; End Our National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect; End Community Violence, Police Fear & Educator’s Frustrations

Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment

Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment, gives a compelling overview of the role that exposure to childhood trauma plays in the lives of troubled and chronically ill Americans.

After watching Dr. Ross’ presentation one of the questions all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, “What real substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent Child Abuse and Neglect that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults as a result of experiencing the emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?”

At 2:12:25 in this documentary about Mafia hitman and victim of Early Childhood Trauma/Abuse, Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski, Dr. Park Dietz explains why young Richard most likely developed into a emotionally disturbed, paranoid, cruel, heartless teen and man who did not give a frig about anyone else, including his wife and kids.

Depraved Indifference for Human Life?

What I see in this recorded act of criminal child abuse, is adults conditioning children to embrace the cycle of child abuse, child maltreatment and violence passed down from generation to generation by depressed Americans who are content living in the poverty they are primarily responsible for fueling when irresponsibly birthing children from selfishness, instead of the love between two committed adult partners.

Nationally Popular Victims of Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.

In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”

CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT AMERICAN MOMS & PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY

I’ll get right to my point.

Should Baltimore mom Ms. Toya Graham be held ACCOUNTABLE for immorally and irresponsibly introducing SIX children to a life of pain and struggle that caused her depressed teen son and many of his depressed teen classmates to try and cause grave harm or death to police attempting to protect peaceful Baltimore residents from being emotionally and/or physically injured by depressed angry teens and adults peeved for being introduced to a life of hardships and pain by their immature moms.

Should Tavis Smiley’s teen mom be held ACCOUNTABLE for irresponsibly building a family of ten children, nine of whom Tavis revealed in a May 2015 discussion about Poverty, continue to struggle with Poverty?

Should Freddie Gray’s mom Gloria Darden be held ACCOUNTABLE for failing to place the welfare and well being of her child ABOVE ALL ELSE….and for failing in her parental duty/obligation to her child as well as societal responsibility to her community and Nation to raise a child maturing into a reasonably responsible teen and adult respecting himself, as well as his neighbors and the authority charged with maintaining peace in all our communities?

Should our nation’s CHILD WELFARE LAWS be re-examined and modified to PREVENT MATERNAL caregivers from creating POVERTY by irresponsibly introducing children to a life of pain and struggle?

The responsible Americans who regularly witness THE OPPRESSION & EMOTIONAL or PHYSICAL ABUSE of our nation’s most precious and valuable assets seem to believe our CHILD PROTECTION LAWS need to be changed to protect kids from CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT MOMS!

What do my American neighbors think?

Should we continue allowing depressed, immature, irresponsible American females to create human life that far too often ends up causing emotional and physical harm to our peaceful neighbors and populating our CJS and prisons?

I spent the first twelve years of my police career serving the Brooklyn, NY community Shawn Jay Z Carter joyously raps OPPRESSING and terrorizing with his drug peddling trade that he and his crew/gang/posse protected and enforced with their semi-automatic Mack Millis.

I spent twelve years of my life personally witnessing young developing children being emotionally scarred for life by mostly single moms who built families out of their own selfishness and immaturity.

I spent twelve years of my life experiencing fear, anxiety, emotional pain and heartache that was no different from the emotions experienced by countless victims of violence committed against them by depressed, frustrated, angry, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal (NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers) teens and adults who were horribly abused and neglected by their MATERNAL caregivers.

I spent twelve years witnessing CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT moms engage in irresponsible, life OPPRESSING human behaviors that has resulted with a substantial population of my African American neighbors viewing and/or rapping about the MATERNAL HALF of our society being less than human ^itches and ^hores unworthy of respect.

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/08/30/when-why-did-our-moms-become-less-than-human/

A significant number of these Americans perform before our international neighbors while hating-on and demeaning our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters, aunts and nieces. :sadness:

I find it very sad and reprehensible that not only are Americans children and teens exposed to angry music performers hating our moms, but so are our neighbors all around our beautiful tiny blue orb. :angry/sad:

I do not want to sound arrogant, though if you respond to this writing I do not want to read about the legacy of racism, “white privilege” or any other issues that DEFLECT from discussing TODAY’S American children being OPPRESSED by individual Americans who ignore their parental and societal duty/RESPONSIBILITY/obligation to raise and nurture fairly happy American kids enjoying SAFE STREETS to travel and play on.

Peace.

Feeding a hungry belly for one day is a nice gesture, though it does not address the larger issue of America’s expanding and shameful National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect, aka Poverty, that for more than two generations has deprived untold numbers of American kids from experiencing and enjoying a fairly happy American kid childhood with Safe Streets to travel and play on.

Child Abuse and Neglect that is primarily responsible for populating our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated, undisciplined, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults full of resentment for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of hardships and struggles.

Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect that often leads depressed, sometimes suicidal (NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers) children to develop into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion for others, though needing to vent their pent up negative emotions, often causing emotional and physical harm to peaceful people…instead of venting their anger, resentment and pain on the immature single moms and/or dads who introduced them to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsibly building a family before acquiring the practical skills, PATIENCE and means to successfully raise and nurture a developing young child who matures into a fairly happy responsible teen and adult with mostly fond memories of his or her childhood.

The question all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, what real, substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent abuse that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry teens and adults as a result of experiencing the emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?

Larissa Pham wrote, “It may be difficult to imagine that life at Yale, a site of immense privilege as well as a seemingly liberal oasis, could be tough for students at all in light of other, more violent instances of racism occurring across the nation.”

I recognize that racial prejudice exists in today’s America, though I refuse to accept that racism is prevalent in my country.

No way on Earth do a substantial number of Americans believe that people of African descent are inferior humans, therefore they should be dominated by superior humans, which is the definition of racism.

I believe America’s expanding and shameful epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect has replaced the oppression and indignities of racism, resulting with my American neighbors of African descent experiencing prejudice from many peaceful Americans for not doing anything to educate or prevent immature teen girls and women from creating poverty by building families before acquiring the skills, PATIENCE and means to provide their child or children with a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood with Safe Streets to travel and play on.

Please allow me to explain why I hold this belief.

Early in my police career when I was assigned to the Brooklyn community Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter raps/writes about attempting destroy by selling poison to depressed people living and working in his community, and rapping about engaging in extremely harmful anti-social behaviors designed to protect his drug operation from rival gangs in adjoining neighborhoods, a few of my training officers advised me to be prepared to experience “culture shock.”

When I asked what is meant by “culture shock,” I was told, “You’ll find out.”

I did find out what “culture shock” is, though it was not a culture of violence and harmful anti-social activities many were insinuating I would be shocked by.

The aspect of this Brooklyn, NY community that shocked me to the core was witnessing children being emotionally scarred by an American Sub-Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect,” aka Poverty that Kendrick Lamar raps and speaks about some twenty-five years after I first witnessed the “American Sub-Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect” that today CONTINUES emotionally damaging many developing children and their communities.

I personally witnessed the emotional trauma and physical pain a young, neglected, unsupervised, Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter is responsible for causing, and its aftermath, leaving a community populated by mostly peaceful people fearing for their safety on a 24/7 basis, which are the hours Shawn’s crew/gang were selling community harming substances.

During the twelve years I served this community I met hundreds of peaceful people who were just as shaken, upset and deeply disturbed as I was by the daily displays of violence and other anti-social activities mostly caused by teens and adults who were victims of childhood abuse and neglect.

I was lucky, at the end of my workday I could leave the community, returning to a more peaceful residential community where concerns for me and my family’s safety were significantly lower.

However, virtually all of my civilian co-workers, mostly loving, competent moms living in this community were not as fortunate. They were burdened with stresses and challenges my parents did not face to any significant degree.

The added stresses and challenges my peaceful co-workers faced was preventing their children from being negatively influenced by abused, neglected, unsupervised children being raised and nurtured by immature, “living wild” teen moms and young women who irresponsibly begin building families before they acquired the skills, maturity, PATIENCE and means to independently provide for their family of developing children.

In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

During a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy award, told the interviewer:

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.”

“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”

It seems evident to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates from enjoying a fairly happy safe childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick’s immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children’s way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with…nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

It seems evident to me these PARENTAL INTRODUCED obstacles and challenges cause some developing children’s minds to become tormented and go haywire, not knowing OR NOT CARING ABOUT right from wrong…because as they mature, young victims of child abuse realize their parents introduced them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying. RESENTMENT

I wonder how little Kendrick and his classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents? Cognitive Dissonance

I cannot speak for anyone else, but if I was raised in Kendrick’s family I would most likely be silently peeved at my parents. particularly my mom who had the final say on whether or not I was born, for being immature, irresponsible “living wild” adults who deprived me, my sisters and brothers of experiencing a safe, fairly happy Average Joe or Josie American childhood.

I have a feeling most Americans would have been just as shaken and disturbed as I was when witnessing on a daily basis children and teens being abused, neglected and unsupervised, which often resulted with them venting their anger and frustrations on their peaceful neighbors.

NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers

Quoting the NYT article, “The suicide rate among black children has nearly doubled since the early 1990s, surpassing the rate for white children, a new study has found.”

Who is responsible for traumatizing, abusing, neglecting, maltreating children to the point where depressed young kids, we’re talking elementary school age children, believe their lives are not worth living?

With all due respect to my American neighbors of African descent, the oppression of humans that led to racism and slavery has largely been replaced with a new form of human oppression that impedes and deprives many American children from experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.

The question all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, what real, substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent abuse that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry teens and adults as a result of experiencing the emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?

Is Jaye DeBlack incorrect about his assessment of many SINGLE MOMS and how they are emotionally harming a substantial population of our nation’s children by irresponsibly building families out of selfishness – instead of caring and love between two committed adult partners?

Victims of Child Abuse

This video depicts horrific examples of men who were victims of childhood abuse and neglect, conditioning a young teen to embrace ‘The Street’ culture Baltimore Mom of The Year failed to protect her teen son from…not to mention representing the fear peaceful people living and WORKING in the community experience knowing depressed, angry, unpredictable teens and young adults need to vent their angers and frustrations for being introduced to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsible, “living wild” single moms and/or dads.

A little girl, catching a cool breeze from an air conditioning unit in the yard, was blindsided by another child about her same age, who had evidently had some practice with fighting fierce. The small victim wasn’t alone, as there were plenty of nearby witnesses, who could have protected her but didn’t because they were too busy recording the brutal beat down and encouraging it. | Written By Amanda Shea

Depraved Indifference for Human Life?

What I see in this recorded act of criminal child abuse, is adults conditioning children to embrace the cycle of child abuse, child maltreatment and violence passed down from generation to generation by depressed Americans who are content living in the poverty they are primarily responsible for fueling when irresponsibly birthing children from selfishness, instead of the love between two committed adult partners.

Nationally Popular Victims of Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.

Reading rap lyrics penned by Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons (born December 18, 1970), it seems clear to me Earl was a early victim of America’s expanding and shameful National Epidemic of Child Abuse & Neglect, aka Poverty, that for decades has deprived countless numbers of children from experiencing and enjoying a fairly happy American kid childhood with Safe Streets to travel and play on.

Instead of glorifying victims of Child Abuse & Neglect we should all be asking how much longer will compassionate Americans from all communities remain silent while witnessing developing children being selfishly deprived of experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood while being raised and mothered by immature teen and adult females who irresponsibly begin building families before acquiring the skills, PATIENCE and means to provide their child with a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood?

How much longer will we witness victims of early Childhood Abuse, Neglect and/or Maltreatment mature into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion, often venting their rage and resentment for being irresponsibly introduced to a life of hardships and struggles, by committing anti-social acts that emotionally and/or physically harm themselves and/or their peaceful neighbors?

In May 2015 the NYTimes reported an increase in “young” Americans of African descent choosing to end their lives. Who or what is failing children to the point they want to end their own lives?

Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers
By SABRINA TAVERNISE – MAY 18, 2015

How do we intelligently and responsibly prevent children from becoming victims of criminal child abuse?

Reading DMX’s lyrics I learned he was immersed in “The Thug Life.” Teens don’t just flip a switch before embracing the Thug Culture. From an early age many developing children are slowly conditioned to accept the anti-social ‘Street Hustle‘ lifestyle that emotionally and/or physically harms many peaceful people, depriving them of feeling safe in their own neighborhoods.

A few months before she left us, Sandra Bland recorded a video declaring “War on the Gang-bangers and Thugs” who she believes have negatively impacted her quality of life as well as harming peaceful people in her community and many American communities.

Essentially Sandra was speaking about our National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect that deprives untold American kids of experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.

Childhood Abuse and Neglect that often leads depressed children to develop into angry, frustrated, unpredictable teens and adults who often cause emotional harm and physical trauma to peaceful people when venting their anger and frustrations for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of pain and struggle by immature single moms.

Did anyone hear or seriously consider Sandra’s plea?

New Data: It’s Still about Black-on-Black Crime

Claudia Valentine observed, “Poverty and crime create a vicious cycle.

Hello, Claudia.

I spent nearly twelve years observing people creating and living in poverty that often leads depressed, angry, frustrated people to committing harmful anti-social against their peaceful neighbors.

I met the victims of poverty, depressed teens/adults who committed harmful anti-social acts that emotionally harmed and physically injured victims and neighborhoods.

After spending six years focusing her research on violence, Dr. Joy DeGruy wrote a book titled, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS) which revealed to me more about the human ignorance that enslaved and emotionally harmed many generations of peaceful Americans.

I did not read Dr. Degruy’s book, though I did watch the entire one-hour and twenty-minute video of her lecture that someone was kind enough to post on YouTube.

Listening to Dr. DeGruy describe how “Cognitive Dissonance” plays a role in perpetuating racism/human-ignorance and how it affected victims of human ignorance, further enlightened me about the sadness and horrors of our past.

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/06/04/dr-joy-degruy-addresses-black-depression-violence-and-healing/

Thanks to Dr. Degruy, I learned that Cognitive Dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.

Thanks to Dr. Degruy I have a better understanding of a an emotional, growth harming mental stress that I believe relates to why some kids living in poverty grow-up confused, angry, frustrated and need to vent these negative human emotions as the mature into teens and adults.

In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

In a January 2011 LAWeekly interview Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and victim denial that was nominated for a Grammy award, he told the interviewer:

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.“

“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ‘cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.’”

Seems to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends and elementary school classmates from enjoying a fairly happy safe childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick’s immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children’s way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with…nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

Perhaps these obstacles and challenges cause some developing children’s minds to become tormented and go haywire, not knowing OR NOT CARING ABOUT right from wrong though knowing their parents introduced them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying.

I wonder how little Kendrick and his classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents?

Claudia, I am not a hater, I was a toddler when Motown music was in its infancy, Motown and me grew up together. Motown musicians wrote and composed awesome music celebrating life, love, peace and unity. I ‘felt’ their music, danced to their music, celebrating life right along with these talented musicians, their producers and their millions of admirers around our tiny blue orb.

As far as this young developing American suburban kid was concerned, black people were okay in my book. As I matured I was happy to learn the human ignorance of our past was being addressed and laws were being written to educate and protect ALL my American neighbors from human ignorance.

Anínesah Rodriguez correctly observed, “The African American man has been through so much hate and discrimination since the establishment of this country, and I would have to admit that considering the circumstances they are doing…”

Hello, Aninesah.

For hundreds of years African people in the USA were victims of human ignorance causing them horrible emotional trauma that Dr. Joy DeGruy writes and lectures about.

https://knutesniche.wordpress.com/2015/06/04/dr-joy-degruy-addresses-black-depression-violence-and-healing/

Fortunately, not everyone embraced beliefs of superiority. During the period I attended grade school in NY, society addressed the issues of racism by creating laws intended to educate and protect people from human ignorance.

Unfortunately well-intentioned social policies meant to help people were abused by many depressed African-American people who began building families without first acquiring the skills and means to independently provide for their children.

Tupac and Shawn Jay Z Carter, both born right after the social policies were established, are early victims of single moms who irresponsibly began building families they could not care for.

These men wrote rap lyrics directly or indirectly describing the pain and child abuse they suffered because their parents failed to do their job of being a loving, caring, stable people/or person they could rely on to make wise decisions for them.

As a result of being abused and neglected children, Tupac and Shawn Carter clearly describe the emotional pain and physical damage they caused to peaceful people living and working in their communities.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/tupac-dearmama-lyrics.png

Some two decades later 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar is born, maturing into a young adult who raps and speaks in public about the child abuse/neglect he was exposed to as a kid…child abuse that deprived Kendrick of living a fairly safe, peaceful childhood he witnessed on TV most American kids were enjoying….child abuse that caused Kendrick to resent his parents, resentment and disappointment that Kendrick clearly defines in two LAWeekly interviews.

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-abuse.png

https://knutesniche.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/laweekly-lamar-questions.png

Anínesah, in this excerpt, Kendrick clearly defines who and what, TODAY in 2015, continues harming many Americans kids born into struggling communities.

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.”

“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”

I personally spent nearly a dozen years witnessing many kids in a Brooklyn, NY being subjected to emotional abuse and neglect by their mostly single caretakers.

Therefore I can totally understand why Tupac raps about wanting to commit suicide…and twenty years later Kendrick Lamar raps about experiencing childhood depression.

If I was raised by either of their parents I’d be peeved to high heaven at them for introducing me and my siblings to life in a community populated by many who are suffering from the “Cognitive Dissonance” Dr. Joy DeGruy writes and lectures about.

The emotional damage done to many kids is: >>> “wild” parents slowly conditioning their children to accept “The Street” culture that causes emotional harm to developing toddlers, children and teens who just want to live a safe, fairly happy life, much like Kendrick wanted to live but was deprived of experiencing because his parents were victims of the Cognitive Dissonance Dr. DeGruy writes and lectures about.

Thanks to immature moms irresponsibly building small and large families they cannot reasonably expect to flourish and thrive, peaceful people become victims of abused, depressed children who mature into teens and adults lacking compassion and empathy, or deciding their life sucks so what is the point about caring for others.

During this May 14, 2015 chat about poverty with OReilly, Tavis Smiley talks about becoming successful while his NINE brothers and sisters continue to struggle.

Let’s be honest, Aninesah. As young Tavis’s mind matured he no doubt recognized his mom acted irresponsibly when at eighteen-years-old she choose to begin building a large family before she acquired the maturity, patience, skills and means to nurture and care for her children.

Same for young Micheal Graham-Singleton of Baltimore, whose mom Toya Graham, at the tender age eighteen-years-old began building a large family that she intentionally introduced to a community populated with depressed, struggling people…the same depressed struggling people she witnessed when she was a child in the community.

When considering her level of education and the nature of the community she was going to raise and nurture her children in, why would a loving, responsible mom/person build a large family she could not possibly expect to thrive and prosper.

I have no doubts there were many occasions Michael Graham-Singleton silently asked himself, “Why did my mom have so many kids she can’t properly care for, did she want us to experience pain, struggle and hardships?”

Aninesah, I was a toddler when Motown was in its infancy, we grew up together as virtual friends. My Motown friend wrote and composed awesome music that made me and most all my neighbors smile and dance, wanting to celebrate life.

Despite the social tumult during that period of American history when Americans were addressing and attempting to correct a human ignorance known as racism, I had no beef with black people because they were writing/composing music about peace, love and unity.

Fast forward to the early 1980s when I applied for a career with the NYPD.

Early in my police career when I was assigned to a Brooklyn community a few of my training officers advised me to be prepared to experience “culture shock.” When I asked what is meant by “culture shock,” I was told, “You’ll find out.”

I did find out what “culture shock” is, though it was not a culture of violence and harmful anti-social activities many were insinuating I would be shocked by.

The aspect of this Brooklyn, NY community that shocked me to the core was witnessing children being emotionally scarred by a “culture of child abuse/neglect” that Kendrick Lamar raps and speaks about some twenty-five years after I first witnessed the “Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect” that today CONTINUES emotionally damaging many developing children and their communities.

Anínesah, today in 2015 I believe a vast majority of Americans recognize that all human beings are born with a capacity for achieving greatness that improves their lives and contributes to improving the quality of lives for our neighbors.

However, reading online blogs it is clear some or many of today’s Americans embrace stereotypes that lead to racial prejudice. Stereotyping and prejudice are human attitudes the human species is still struggling with as we continue to evolve as a species of animals blessed with intelligence that allows us to improve ourselves as we evolve.

Sadly, and this is just my opinion, Anínesah…I believe until my fellow Americans from all backgrounds can somehow educate and convince many American young teens and women of African descent to become more responsible when building families, many Americans will continue to embrace racial prejudice and stereotyping.

Me, I am sad many children and grandchildren of my Motown friends have for over thirty years been writing rap and hip hop performance lyrics that demeans people of color.

I am sad the beautifully composed music and messages of peace, love and unity my Motown friends shared with our entire world, is today being ‘sampled,’ or exploited by young rap and hip hop performers and their producers who characterize females as “witches and bhores,” or essentially less than human creatures not worthy of their respect.

I am sad I spent nearly a dozen years of my adult life (a life that from the very beginning was raised and nurtured to embrace compassion and empathy; instilled through love and discipline) witnessing on a daily basis toddlers, children, teens being emotionally abused and maltreated by their irresponsible, immature caregivers who were mostly single moms.

I was sad for my civilan co-workers, most all married or single-moms living in the community were burdened with the added stress of preventing their children from being influenced and harmed by “The Street” culture Baltimore grandmother Toya Graham was struggling to prevent her son Michael from becoming immersed in.

After witnessing Michael’s young teen friends and school classmates acting in a depraved manner, showing an indifference for human life toward people trying to protect their peaceful neighbors from the emotional and physical harm caused by depressed kids raised by immature, “wild” parents who neglect their children’s emotional needs, I believe Ms. Graham may have lost her struggle to keep her son from being influenced and harmed by “The Street.”

Watching video of children pelt police with bricks and boulders told me someone failed these kids in a major way.

The anger Michael’s teen friends and school classmates were venting came from years of frustration after being born to a life of struggle and hardship by a young immature mom who at the time in her young life selfishly looked out for her own well being, disregarding the pain and struggle she witnessed other kids suffer when she was a child and younger teen growing up in the community. I have met and/or arrested several adolescents who emotionally expressed outrage at their moms for giving them life. On my blog I write about one child I met who reminds me of Kendrick, he just wanted to be a regular kid with regular parents.

I am sad kids like Michael Graham-Singleton lay in bed at night, get up for school, play with their friends, all while filled with a simmering rage and resentment for being introduced to a life of poverty filled with hardship, pain and struggle…a life that caused Tupac Shakur to wake in the morning wondering if he should “blast” himself. A life that is most likely responsible for the rise in suicide among black kids and young adults recently reported in the NYTimes.

I am sad the simmering rage and resentment these children’s minds are being tormented by was vented on police, most all of whom were raised and nurtured to respect life by their caregivers, communities and educators.

Unfortunately, spending a significant amount of time dealing with on a daily basis the simmering rage and resentment many abused/neglected kids are emotionally harmed by, can slowly erode compassion and empathy when trying to protect one’s self from potential grave harm that depressed, unpredictable teens and adults often cause to peaceful people living and working in the community.

I am sad Ms. Graham, Tavis Smiley’s mom, Kendrick Lamar’s “wild living” parents for whatever reasons, built large families of human beings who experience the hardships of poverty.

I am sad that each one of the moms I just mentioned, made poor decisions that resulted in them failing to raise a family of somewhat happy children who all mature into somewhat happy adults raising their own somewhat happy family of children.

Frankly, Anínesah, I am angry at moms who selfishly make poor choices. Not only are they introducing children to a early life of struggle and pain, they are creating depressed angry children who become a real and imminent threat to safety and security of their peaceful neighbors and entire community.

Anínesah, you shared, “The African American man has been through so much hate and discrimination…”

No sane person will dispute my Motown friends and their predecessors were emotionally damaged and victimized by hundreds of years of human ignorance. I’m sure some of the ignorance lingers today.

Though I believe the emotional damage many of my Motown friend’s kids and grand-kids are experiencing and expressing in their Rap Hip Hop performances is a direct result of teens and young women becoming moms before they acquire the skills, maturity and patience required to nurture a child wearing a somewhat what happy face as a teen and adult, until they become old and cranky like me. 🙂

Anínesah, I am offended and tired of hearing women being referred to as witches and bhores, any ideas for changing that attitude?

Georgia wrote, “NYC cop” – enough said! # black rappers matter

Hello, Georgia. I respectfully disagree, believing ALL lives matter.

Sadly I met people who believe otherwise, raising their children to become potential rappers who express in the performances the child abuse their moms subjected them to.

This is one example of the many tragic human events I witnessed in Brooklyn and other NYC communities. It is also an example of people in a community failing to police themselves by not reporting child abuse, or having the capacity to recognize child abuse when they witness it.

One evening a call for police service brought me to a young mom’s second floor walk-up apartment in a private dwelling, she was reporting the theft of a Boom-Box radio taken from her kitchen window sill by someone trespassing on her building’s fire escape.

Entering this young mom’s apartment I observed several children, some in diapers, a few older, sitting on a living room couch, an aluminum fifty-five gallon, half-filled trash can was sitting right in the middle of her tiny living room, as if it was her coffee table. One of her living room walls was smeared with several dark stains of what I believed to be human waste.

I calmly recorded her theft complaint and left, immediately reporting my observations to my sergeant who instructed me to contact child welfare. Forty-five minutes later the children were removed from this mom’s care, temporarily placed in the custody and care of the people of New York City.

Sadly, this was not my only interaction with this mom.

Months later I arrested her younger brother for robbery. According to the victims and one witness to this act of violence who recognized her brother from the neighborhood, he placed what appeared to be a handgun in the face of two victims and threatened their lives while demanding and taking their property.

Until she arrived at the precinct to protest her brother’s arrest, I had no idea my young prisoner was related to the mom whose maltreated children I caused to be taken from her months earlier. At the top of her lungs, much like Michael Brown’s father when he was recorded reacting to the perceived injustice to his family member, she adamantly insisted her brother was not a robber.

I showed her the gun I recovered from her brother’s pocket, I told her one witness knows her brother from the neighborhood, still not convinced she came very close to being arrested for becoming disorderly and refusing to leave the precinct station house once her business was done. Later I learned that she appeared in court when her younger brother was arrested months earlier for an unrelated robbery.

What was the point of lying about her brother not being a street thug, when there are public records indicating she knew he was committing acts of violence toward people months before she looked me in the eye and vehemently denied her brother is a robber?

I believe I know the answer to my own question. Again, I have no formal training in understanding why people tend to act the way they do, however based on my life experiences I believe Boom-Box mom lied to me without a care or second thought because she was raised to believe lying and denial is how people cope with uncomfortable situations..or..she never acquired and developed the critical thinking skills required to look past living in the moment, or the “here and now’.

Time and time again I interviewed adults and teens who lied to me about easily verifiable facts, often placing themselves at risk for being arrested for obstructing or impeding criminal investigations. Is this something most people with average critical thinking skills would do?

After every day or night’s work I had a 30-40 minute commute home, which gave me time to reflect on the day’s events, how I responded to them, and what I learned from them. Many nights I would drive home with a smile on my face, thinking to myself, “Holy smokes, I can’t believe I get paid to have this much fun identifying and locking up dangerous people.”

During many of these winding-down, reflective moments I would actually experience a euphoric feeling of being “high on life.” For me, at that time in my career, chasing down seriously dangerous bad people who illegally armed themselves with firearms for the purpose of committing mayhem on a mostly peaceful population of working class and poor fellow Americans was the ultimate high, as well as a fringe benefit of police work.

In many cases after taking an alleged dangerous person into custody, I had the opportunity to speak with them and gain ‘some’ insight into what makes them tick. I have no formal training in psychology, however, after meeting and talking with many people who are alleged to have committed crimes in this community, I personally concluded many of the people I arrested were raised and nurtured in environments that lacked real love, understanding, caring and guidance.

Driving home after my first interaction with the aforementioned Boom-Box mom, I thought about her values, her understanding of what is expected of the people who nurture our children, her consideration for laws that society imposes on all people who assume the serious responsibility of rearing children.

I concluded Boom-Box mom was “clueless,” lacking good judgment and skills in all areas required for her to be a good nurturer.

I asked myself, “What is going on in the mind of a mother who invites a law enforcement official into her home, in which she has created a environment for her children that posed a serious risk to their physical well being and health, as well as their psychological development?”

“Does she not realize what she is doing to her children or how her clueless behavior can imprint and affect them for life?”

“Before calling the police did Boom-Box mom not realize society enacted laws protecting her children from the physically harmful and emotionally abusive home she created for them?”

I have to believe Boom-Box mom’s method for parenting is a learned behavior, instilled either during her own upbringing or gleaned from the people she is friends or associates with. Which leaves me wondering if Boom-Box mom ever invited friends or guests to her apartment, and if she did, why didn’t they report the apparent maltreatment and emotional abuse she was exposing her helpless children to?

I am not trying to be harsh by characterizing Boom-Box mom as totally “clueless.” I believe she is a victim of a society accepted cycle of dysfunctional family and community environments…from birth, it appears Boom-Box mom was not shown what a loving environment is made of, it’s difficult for me to be mad at people who are victimized by the recurring cycle, and it certainly makes me better understand why so much rage, anger and frustration exists in the hearts and minds of young “black people” who are raised in these environments.

If I was being raised in the cycle of poverty by a “clueless” parent, as I mature, learning more about the world and witnessing how others are having fun, prospering, loving their families and lives, more than likely over time I’d be real upset, simmering, maybe even rage as I aged and my home environment does not improve.

I think about Boom-Box mom’s children and what they have to look forward to, what skills does she offer her children…what goes through her baby’s minds as they gather around the trash can mom placed in the middle of their living room, day after day watching television depicting the good lives Americans of all backgrounds are enjoying?

What really saddens me……is knowing, based on my experiences, that Boom-Box mom’s “clueless” mindset is replicated by mom’s and parents throughout this community. It saddens and angers me that little kids are in many cases, doomed from the start, or before they are conceived.

When I look back at the environment my parents created for me and how I responded to that environment, I realize my goals were to please my parents by respecting and appreciating what they were doing for me. And most importantly doing my best not to disappoint them because they loved me and made sure I knew it by actively being involved in my life, and aiding me in shaping my life as I developed into a peaceful person who felt loved and cared for.

Two immutable rules in our household were impressed upon me at a young age, “Always be truthful” and “Before judging, wear the other person’s shoes.” Thinking back mom and dad never used the word “empathy” when admonishing me for not thinking before I shot my mouth off, they always said “wear the other person’s shoes.”

I am thinking if my mom and dad placed a trash can in our living room, ignored feces smeared on our walls, got sis and I removed from their custody because they were not providing basic care for me and sis…I am thinking I’d be a pretty messed up kid incapable of embracing the concept of empathy, or purposefully not showing empathy for others because my life sucks and I don’t care about others.

Or perhaps I’d use my intentional lack of empathy as a means to peeve or ‘get-back’ at my parents by engaging in anti-social behaviors that would eventually get me arrested, causing my parents to recognize that I exist, or depending on their views of the police, causing them to interact with authority people they may not necessarily like or trust, thus peeving them.

As I wrote, my experiences occurred years ago.

Recently I looked at current crime stats for this community and learned there has been a significant decrease in reported crimes, though there is still a good amount of violent crimes being committed.

If society continues failing to monitor caregivers who require public funds to raise, nurture and support their children, these kids will continue to be raised in environments like the one Boom-Box mom created for her kids.

I am hoping when camera technology proves its mettle in protecting police officers, as well as identifying officers who require further training or officers who have no business serving the public in a LE capacity, we will use that same technology to protect children by monitoring the common area of homes in which caregivers have established a track record for failing to properly raise, nurture and/or supervise their children. Especially in communities with higher crime rates where kids are more often exposed to some/many neighbors with a mindset for lawlessness.

Recently I watched a video that saddened me as well as enlightened me when I learned child welfare investigators test the hair of child abuse victims for “ambient” exposure to drugs. Holy smokes, the numbers were critical. At the least cameras would expose signs of intoxication in homes identified as requiring extra care to prevent children from being emotionally and or physically harmed.

Kanye’s much anticipated performance of “All Day”

I must be getting old or not keeping up with our evolving culture.

Looking at the lyrics Kanye’s penned for his “All Day” rap performance I am reading juvenile put-downs of people less fortunate than him, characterizations of women as less than human *itches, demeaning references to other people’s complexions and words about people being popped? Popped, that’s murder, isn’t it?

Perhaps it is me and the biases I’ve embraced since witnessing the pain and suffering Kanye’s best buddy and business associate Shawn JayZ Carter caused to peaceful people living a Brooklyn housing project and surrounding neighborhoods.

Shawn JayZ Carter was a poor inner city kid and victim of child abuse/neglect who developed into a emotionally damaged adult who continues to promote child abuse and exploit the victims of child abuse.

Jay “Young Jeezy” Wayne Jenkins (born September 28, 1977) is one of the damaged human beings Shawn Carter exploits for profit and fame.

Kanye was a suburban kid who grew up in a mainstream American, developing into a puppet-master who exploits kids who were victims of child abuse and developed into emotionally damaged adults.

Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Michael Carter, Jr. (Born September 27, 1982) is the perfect example of a damaged human being who Kanye West collaborates with, exploiting Dwayne for profit and fame.

For the record, I was a Brooklyn cop who personally witnessed the fear, emotional and physical damage Shawn JayZ Carter raps about causing to peaceful people living the Marcy Houses or living and working in the surrounding neighborhoods.

I witnessed teen children become hooked on the Crack JayZ raps about selling to his neighbors, and subsequently harming their peaceful neighbors to acquire the funds needed to purchase the drugs JayZ proudly reveals he sold to people in his struggling community.

I find it extremely sad that Shawn JayZ Carter has become a popular celebrity when his past if filled with causing pain to thousands of poor and struggling Americans…of course, puppet and modern day slave master Kanye West is no better for aligning himself with JayZ, a self-proclaimed American Drug Dealer who would have had no problem selling his dangerous drugs to Tupac Skakur’s substance addicted mom..

Victims of Child Abuse

This video depicts horrific examples of men who were victims of childhood abuse and neglect, conditioning a young teen to embrace ‘The Street’ culture Baltimore Mom of The Year failed to protect her teen son from…not to mention representing the fear peaceful people living and WORKING in the community experience knowing depressed, angry, unpredictable teens and young adults need to vent their angers and frustrations for being introduced to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsible, “living wild” single moms and/or dads.

Depraved Indifference for Human Life?

What I see in this recorded act of criminal child abuse, is adults conditioning children to embrace the cycle of child abuse, child maltreatment and violence passed down from generation to generation by depressed Americans who are content living in the poverty they are primarily responsible for fueling when irresponsibly birthing children from selfishness, instead of the love between two committed adult partners.

Nationally Popular Victims of Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.

In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”

MichelleObama

US First Lady Michelle Obama, “I guarantee you that right now, there are kids living less than a mile from here who would never in a million years dream that they would be welcome in this museum.”

Based on my experiences providing police services to a Brooklyn, NY Rap Hip Hop influenced community, I will guarantee Mrs. Obama there are hundreds of children living within 5 miles of the Whitney Museum who were irresponsibly introduced to a life by immature caregivers who fail to properly nurture and raise their children to be peaceful people.

In other words there are hundreds of victims of child abuse ‘existing’ within a few miles of where my president’s wife is speaking.

At this moment the focus should be on preventing this child abuse so children don’t grow up like Tupac Shakur and Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar, writing rap lyrics describing the child abuse/neglect they suffered or rapping about harming their peaceful neighbors in order to survive.

In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

Quoting a January 2011 LAWeekly interview with Kendrick:

“Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 siblings, and they all got six kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.

“I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”

Seems to me a compassionate, empathetic, well educated person might recognize our history of human ignorances for what they are/were…ignorance.

Wouldn’t it be really cool if some/many Americans and other free people were willing to recognize and accept that mankind, aka the human species, is constantly evolving, learning from our ignorance and taking affirmative steps to correct the ignorances some or many humans embrace?

Sadly, slavery and racism are human ignorances that many humans once embraced and encouraged.

Sadly, today there are Americans who obviously prefer to focus on the ignorance/mistakes of our human past, causing continued resentment, pain and mistrust, and in my opinion placing obstacles for healing now and in our future.

Stacey Patton – Umph, umph, umph. Isn’t white supremacy… | Facebook

Dr. Stacey Patton observed, “If hostility to whites were ever going to dominate a Negro’s attitude and reach murderous proportions, surely it would be during a riot.”

Doctor Patton, I’ve spent the past several months reading Rap Hip Hop lyrics written by popular American rappers, many of whom were born and raised in a community similar to the Brooklyn, NY community I provided police services to for nearly a dozen years.

Reading these teen’s and men’s rap lyrics I observe little hate for white people, while I DO read plenty of hate, nastiness and disrespect directed at other people in their community.

I am not going to quote the hundreds of juvenile, demeaning terms American teen and adult rappers use to denigrate and degrade other people, though I recently read one demeaning term Curtis ‘50 Cent’ James Jackson III (born July 6, 1975) used to describe his neighbors, a term I found particularly nasty.

Curtis ’50 Cent’ James Jackson III described some people in his neighborhood as “grimy niggas.”

Several urban dictionaries offer different definitions for a “grimy nigga,” though none of these definitions include the genesis for the term.

The question is why are many rappers hating and disparaging each other as well as others?

Another question Doctor Patton, is why are many rappers characterizing women, aka their moms, sisters, grandmothers and daughters as “bitches and whores,” totally unlike music composers/performers from a few generations ago who wrote beautiful music praising, loving and adoring women?

Dr. Patton, there is a segment of the American population who in my opinion does not wish to recognize the human ignorance of our past for what it is…human ignorance.

At one time in human history supposedly many believed our tiny blue orb was flat. At another point we believed the sun and universe revolved around our planet. And sadly there was a period of human ignorance when we believed one race of humans was superior to another.

There seems to be some/many Americans unwilling to recognize that we are humans constantly evolving, learning about ourselves and our physical world. We have made mistakes, in fact we have made many egregious mistakes that harmed us.

One of those egregious mistakes was ignorantly forcibly enslaving and exploiting a race of human beings who were believed to be less capable or competent.

Growing up during the turmoil of the 60s one thing that stood out in my mind was The Four Tops, Ms. Diana Ross and The Supremes, Curtis Mayfield’s The Impressions, Sam Cooke, The Temptations and dozens of other black music artists who were making me smile.

In my developing mind, I viewed black musicians as good people who create sounds that make me feel good…how can they be lesser when they are showing me they make sounds just as appealing as other music artists I admired? Plus, many had a unique sound, style and great hair.

As I matured and could better comprehend the impact our human ignorance had on black people, who wrote great music for our world to enjoy, I realized the emotional pain they suffered would take time to heal.

Sadly, there are Americans who wish to exploit the pain caused by our past human ignorance, instead of seeking ways to heal the wounds that today most Americans recognize black people around our tiny blue orb have suffered due to human ignorance known as racism.

These upset Americans seem intent with clinging to our ignorant past, while ignoring that as a human species we are evolving, learning about ourselves, improving our collective lot through education and societal laws designed to protect us from human ignorance.

Dr. Patton, I am still trying to figure out why many of today’s urban music performers write lyrics characterizing their moms, sisters, grandmas and daughters as less than human or prostitutes?

I would truly like to learn why many American Rap and Hip Hop performers are writing lyrics characterizing many females as less than human?

Perhaps you have a theory?

Why Are Many Black Children Depressed?

Hello. In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

After looking at the entirety of the Rap lyrics written by Kendrick, I recognize he and I have both tread in similar worlds or communities.

Kendrick doing so as a depressed adolescent, me as a often frustrated uniformed NYC police officer dealing with children suffering from depression. In my experience, depressed children who often resort to committing anti-social harmful acts against their peaceful neighbors.

I’d like to share one of my experiences in dealing with a child who was suffering from depression that apparently resulted from frustrations and anger he felt toward his mother.

I try to calmly relate my experiences, though I am told my writings are not always sensitive. I apologize if my frustrations seep into the my accounts of personally witnessing child abuse, as well as its affects on developing infants, toddlers, children, teens and their communities.

I am processing a mid-teen I arrested for stealing food and fighting to keep it when he got caught. I called his mother before speaking with him, when she arrived at the precinct I escorted her to the juvenile detention room, where the teen went-off on her, sharply criticizing her for ignoring him, for ignoring his brothers and sisters, blaming his mother for the situation he is in.

The kid was in tears as he verbally pummeled his mother, suggesting she did not love any of her children and the only reason she had them was to collect welfare to escape living with her own crazy, drug addicted mother.

I stood there numb, watching one of the most heartbreaking and disturbing, yet insightful moments I ever witnessed in my career. The kid had a mental breakdown venting what I assumed were years of built up frustration and disappointment.

Appearing unaffected by her son’s torment and outburst of emotion, his mother did not protest her child’s accusation, nor did she seem concerned about his fragile condition as she left the interview room “for a smoke” while he was still sobbing.

What do I say to this kid? How do I deal with a kid who rightfully or not believes he is not loved by his own mother?

What are his perceptions of me as a person responsible for protecting and helping people, yet I can’t help fix his problems, instead I arrested him?

This mother who apparently raised an emotionally abused and maltreated child said she was going for a smoke and never returned, abandoning her child, leaving him in the care and custody of the City of NY. I spent a hour trying to locate her before transporting the kid to a juvenile detention facility, which due to the kid’s emotional state was probably best for both of them at that time.

Not that many are concerned with spending/wasting government money, but this mom’s refusal to love, nurture and accept responsibility her child being released to her custody cost the City of New York four hours of overtime that evening. Four hours of overtime earned while dealing with a unloved, angry, frustrated child who at fifteen-years-old was charged with a crime because he wanted food to feed himself and his siblings.

Frankly, that was four hours of OT I could have lived without, though what I gleaned from this experience gave me more insight into the mind of a child born to a woman some pejoratively characterize as a “Welfare Queen.”

Certainly, I wish I could cure the ills and trauma experienced by a child that feels unloved, however I cannot. Though I can relate my thoughts and comments for improving the lives of children born to mothers imbued with a “clueless” mindset for raising children, and toward life in general.

Society should no longer tolerate people making babies as a means to escape the dysfunction of their own care-givers. Society needs to rethink our policies for ‘rewarding teens and young women with free cash for making babies.’

I believe a part of the solution for protecting children from “clueless” parenting is to utilize the same camera technologies we are proposing/demanding our police officers use to protect them and the public.

I am hoping when camera technology proves its mettle in protecting police officers, as well as identifying officers who require further training or officers who have no business serving the public in a LE capacity, we will use that same technology to protect children by monitoring the common area of homes in which caregivers have established a track record for failing to properly raise, nurture and/or supervise their children.

Recently I watched a video that saddened me as well as enlightened me when I learned child welfare investigators test the hair of child abuse victims for “ambient” exposure to drugs.

Holy smokes, the numbers were critical. At the least cameras would expose signs of intoxication in homes identified as requiring extra care to prevent children from being emotionally and or physically harmed.


In 1987 singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega garnered three GRAMMY nominations, including Record and Song Of The Year for her Top 5 hit about child abuse, “Luka.”

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay

I walked into the door again

Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”

Most kids will clam-up rather than say an ill word about their abusers. However, I’ve met a few child abuse victims whose level of frustration with their caregivers pushed them to make poor choices causing the police to become involved…and subsequently reveal their true feelings, as the young teen I arrested in the anecdote I shared.

Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

I do not know Kendrick or the cause for his childhood depression. I’ve searched my memory file for times in my past when depression may have crept in. I can’t think of any as a kid, except for the time I forged mom’s signature on a 6th grade report card and got caught, sending mom into a rage I’d never witnessed before or after. She was wholly upset that I was a cheat and liar, engaging in a act contrary to all her schooling about honesty and truthfulness. Mom’s reaction made me depressed because I hurt and disappointed her, real bad.

Reading Kendrick’s lyrics I am fairly certain he’s grown up knowing depressed kids like the fifteen year-old I arrested for thievery.

Suzanne Vega is a Grammy nominee who wrote lyrics about child abuse and how many children will deny they were abused by their caregivers.

Kendrick Lamar is a Grammy winner who wrote rap lyrics that include expressing signs of child abuse.

Considering he has decided to share his thoughts and experiences with the entire world, I am curious to know what Kendrick believes caused him to be a depressed adolescent?

I am also curious to learn Kendrick’s opinion for why some/many of today’s lyricists characterize women as “witches and bhores” in their music, totally unlike the artists from earlier generations, most all who praised and loved women – aka their moms, sisters, grandmas and daughters.

Black Child Abuse/Neglect; Is Baltimore Mom Toya Graham Perpetuating Poverty & Prejudice?

Child Abuse/Neglect; Is Baltimore Mom Toya Graham Perpetuating Poverty & Prejudice?

toya graham baltmore
Baltimore Mom of The Year Toya Graham, her son and granddaughter

red-dot

Hello. My writings are based on the nearly twelve years I provided uniformed and investigative police services to the Brooklyn, NY community Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter raps about attempting destroy by indiscriminately selling ‘people and community’ harming addictive drugs to his depressed, struggling neighbors, regardless of the drug purchaser’s AGE, emotional or physical condition.

I am told my writings are not always sensitive. I apologize if my frustrations seep into my accounts of personally witnessing child abuse, as well as how it affects developing newborns, infants, toddlers, children, teens and their communities.

With all due respect to Baltimore mom Toya Graham and her admirers, I do not view Ms. Graham as “Mother of The Year” nor do I believe she is a responsible person. Fact is, I believe Ms. Toya Graham is one of thousands of criminal or criminally negligent American moms who perpetuates poverty, prejudice and child abuse or neglect.

Knowing the struggles and challenges MANY married couples and single parents with large families face, why would an intelligent, responsible person birth multiple children who she cannot properly care for/supervise?

Assuming Ms. Graham was raised and nurtured in a community with ‘The Street’ mentality she speaks about, after witnessing the difficulty and challenges other moms with large family’s face, why would Ms. Graham assume the immense responsibility and added stresses of protecting six children from ‘The Street’ mentality prevalent in many poor American communities?

I’ve met hundreds of moms like Ms. Graham. I’ve met them when they were young immature teens/adults who irresponsibly birthed multiple children they were not fully prepared to nurture and care for on a 24/7 basis, nor had they acquired the means to independently provide for their children, often seeking from their responsible neighbors, monetary assistance in the form of social services.

Knowing she would have to work her tail off to provide for six children, would a responsible mom birth multiple kids knowing she would be at work trying to earn enough for her six kids to get by on…while at the same time her six children were being supervised by a person who is not their mother?

Would an intelligent working single mom realize that birthing fewer children will result in fewer stresses in her life and offer a better quality of life for her children???

Would a responsible, critical thinking person living in a community populated with depressed, angry, frustrated children and adults, many who adopt “The Street” culture to make their living, birth multiple children knowing the struggles and challenges her children will face as they develop into teens and adults?

Does a responsible working mom who is just getting by, providing her six children with the bare essentials, realize that caring for, nurturing and raising fewer children will result in happier kids?

Besides meeting hundreds of moms like Toya Graham, I have met hundreds of angry, frustrated, depressed children much like her son Michael. Sadly, I have arrested many children who vent their anger and frustrations on their peaceful neighbors as well as the police responsible for protecting their peaceful neighbors from children who develop into teens and adults lacking compassion and empathy for their peaceful neighbors.

As I am writing this I am listening to Ms. Toya Graham inform CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “At no time is my son a thug.”

I realize many/most moms instinctively wish to protect their children. I also understand that in most cases moms realize when their children behave poorly it reflects on them, and denying their child acted poorly is also protecting their reputation as a good mom.

However, Ms. Graham has stated her son has been in trouble before and in this instance she reveals personally witnessing her son concealing his identity while congregating with other depressed, angry children who conspired via social media to cause mayhem and harm to a shopping mall, as well as police responsible for protecting peaceful people in a public place. I watched in horror as these children threw brick and concrete ‘boulders’ at police, the only words I could think of to describe the children’s action are, “Depraved indifference to human life.”

In light of this comment about her son Michael Graham not being a thug I am totally miffed at why she is being hailed “Mom of The Year” when she is clearly denying reality?

I watched a interview with her son Michael who did not appear ashamed or embarrassed that he was identified as a person in his community who attempted to cause great bodily harm to innocent police officers attempting to protect peaceful people from angry, frustrated depressed children. In fact my impression is that Michael Graham is already being indoctrinated into what his mother Toya characterized as “The Street.”

When my mom told me to be careful in the street she did not want me being struck by a car. When Ms. Graham admonishes her son to be careful in “The Street” she is telling Michael to avoid hanging with depressed children who commit anti-social acts against their peaceful neighbors, including selling drugs, and items stolen from their peaceful working neighbors via burglary or forcible robbery.

For nearly a dozen years I witnessed on a daily basis the pain children experience from living without true love, true caring, proper guidance and the basic things other kids have…like food.

I’ve also witnessed the emotional pain and physical damage peaceful people and neighborhoods experience when kids like Michael Graham develop into angry, frustrated, depressed teens because they don’t have things, or feel a true sense of love and connection with their parents, or in Michael’s case his single mother.

When I hear people talking about poverty I wonder if they realize Toya Graham and the hundreds of moms much like her that I met while serving a predominantly black Brooklyn community are responsible for causing-perpetuating poverty and the prejudice/fear many American experience when they read about or are personally affected by the anti-social acts children like Ms. Graham’s son commit?

I wonder if Ms. Graham had made more mature, responsible choices before beginning a family, perhaps her son Michael would not develop into a angry young man who chose to join other angry frustrated children in harming peaceful people in their community?

If instead of having six children and struggling to care for them, why not create a family of two children who can enjoy a better quality of life because mom does not have to struggle attempting to provide for a larger family?

If moms choose to raise their children in communities that are struggling, communities that are populated with depressed angry teens and adults, many who are the victims of child abuse, maltreatment and neglect, why do so many of these moms continue to birth multiple children into these risky environments?

Isn’t it difficult enough protecting one or two children from “The Street” influences of abused/neglected depressed children/teens/adults in the community?

I would like to know why Ms. Graham and the thousands of moms living in struggling communities believe is it easier protecting six children from anti-social attitudes of other children born to irresponsible moms who also birth multiple children they are failing to properly raise and nurture?

In this writing I am going to refrain from expressing the anger, frustration and pain I experienced from having to deal with angry, depressed, frustrated, undisciplined, unpredictable, irrational children like Michael Graham.

Though I will express my disappointment with Ms. Toya Graham and the thousands of clueless mothers much like her who early in their lives make immature, irresponsible decisions that lead to birthing multiple children before acquiring the skills and means to raise and nurture a peaceful child who becomes a success at life…even if success is measured in simply driving a bus, baking bread, enforcing laws, replacing broken street lamps…but most importantly raising fairly happy kids.

I will also express my anger at moms, who UNLIKE Ms. Toya Graham, blame the police and everyone but themselves for THEIR parental shortcomings.

Ladies, I am sorry I had to chase your child through “The Street” after your child shoved a senior to the ground, sliced the elder’s pocket open with a box cutter before removing the elder’s wallet and fleeing with me chasing your child. I am sorry that when I caught up with your child he or she decided to fight/assault me, forcing me to use lawful physical force to prevent your child from harming me.

I’m sorry I spent several hours in the hospital guarding your child because he or she was injured when I was trying to capture him/her, thereby protecting more elders from being emotionally and physically harmed by your depressed child.

Ladies, I am sorry many Americans, the American/international media, and the leader of the free world are characterizing your children as “thugs.”

I began my police career believing the frustrated, angry, often violent kids in this Brooklyn community were “thugs.” But after a year or so of witnessing many newborns, infants, toddlers, children and teens being schooled and nurtured by immature, irresponsible or apathetic caregivers lacking any discernible child rearing skills, I started viewing these kids differently.

Using the empathy and compassion my parents, community and educators schooled me to embrace, which being human is sometimes difficult to remember/employ during stressful times, I began to realize many of these kids were doomed to resume the Cycle Of Childhood Abuse & Neglect, aka Poverty, created for them by their immature, irresponsible caregivers. While at the same time acting on their anger and frustrations with the life their caregivers introduced them to, by harming their peaceful neighbors.

After more than a decade of serving this community I realized there was no point to me dealing with the added stresses I experienced serving a large population of depressed children, teens and adults. I transferred to a new ‘second home’ where I completed my career with a lot less emotional stress and concerns for my personal safety.

Sadly, when abused, neglected or maltreated children’s mad-world begins affecting their EMOTIONAL WELL BEING, or their ability to discern right from wrong, abused and/or neglected kids DO NOT have the option of packing up and leaving their mad-world behind them.

Until the leader of the free world, the American Media and my American neighbors honestly recognize the primary reason for why these kids are acting out and harming innocent people, much of the public, including police will continue to experience fear for their safety.

Let me make it clear that I was also serving/protecting the families of my civilian co-workers, most all were hard-working competent mothers who lived in the community and struggled to keep their children safe from influences of depressed children raised by immature, irresponsible mothers in the community.

Thank you. Avery “Knute” Jarhman

Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment, gives a compelling overview of the role that exposure to childhood trauma plays in the lives of troubled and chronically ill Americans.

After watching Dr. Ross’ presentation one of the questions all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, “What real substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent Child Abuse and Neglect that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults as a result of experiencing the emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?”

At 2:12:25 in this documentary about Mafia hitman and victim of Early Childhood Trauma/Abuse, Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski, Dr. Park Dietz explains why young Richard most likely developed into a emotionally disturbed, paranoid, cruel, heartless teen and man who did not give a frig about anyone else, including his wife and kids.

Is Jaye DeBlack incorrect about his assessment of many SINGLE MOMS and how they are emotionally harming a substantial population of our nation’s children by irresponsibly building families out of selfishness – instead of caring and love between two committed adult partners?

Depraved Indifference for Human Life?

What I see in this recorded act of criminal child abuse, is adults conditioning children to embrace the cycle of child abuse, child maltreatment and violence passed down from generation to generation by depressed Americans who are content living in the poverty they are primarily responsible for fueling when irresponsibly birthing children from selfishness, instead of the love between two committed adult partners.

Nationally Popular Victims of Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.

Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.

Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.

In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.

Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.

“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say

And it’s not your business anyway”

NYPD Training Includes Advice Like ‘Don’t Be Racist

Proposed Federal Rules for NYPD Training Include Cop 101 Advice Like ‘Don’t Be Racist’

Stephen Rex Brown, NY Daily News, April 21, 2015

NYPD recruits are about to get a crash course in the ABCs of policing.

The federal monitor overseeing reforms to the NYPD wants the current class of Police Academy recruits to be taught groundbreaking new concepts like: Don’t be racist, don’t mock others, don’t tell sexist jokes and don’t hassle people for no reason.

The monitor, Peter Zimroth, asked Manhattan Federal Judge Analisa Torres on Monday to approve the stack of new training materials that will be presented to the class of cadets graduating in June.

He included in filings more than 75 PowerPoint slides that delve into the nitty-gritty of police work, detail constitutional stop-and-frisk practices–and give remedial directions that, it is hoped, the officers already know.

“Do not imitate the speech patterns of others: This will appear disingenuous, artificial and possibly racist,” reads another.

Hello. In the ‘80s after graduating from the NYPD academy and completing six months of post academy field training I was assigned to a Rap Hip Hop influenced Brooklyn community. During the nearly twelve years this community was my second home I was awarded a investigator’s gold shield.

After about two years of providing uniform services I was assigned to the precinct’s plainclothes anti-crime unit where I was responsible for investigating violent street crimes and burglaries.

Now that I was no longer responding to 911 calls and providing routine police services, in order to effectively investigate these types of community harming, anti-social acts, I had to become more involved by personally interacting with more people in the community.

Riding around this mostly residential Brooklyn community I would see the same faces day after day hanging on the same corners or near the same bodegas. Obviously these are people who are aware of what is going on in the community, so it makes sense that a person charged with protecting the community would introduce himself to these people and try to learn more about them. After all that is my job, gathering intelligence that can be used to protect peaceful people in this community.

Often these men and young teen boys, many who were already suffering from depression, became even more depressed when approached by police officers who asked questions they did not want to answer, and even more depressed by a police presence that prevented them from selling contraband to their neighbors, or selling items that were stolen from their peaceful neighbors who were at work when their homes and apartments were being burglarized by depressed adults, and unsupervised children in their teens.

Spending day after day interacting with people who speak in a certain style, I found myself adopting that style of speech when interacting with people who speak in ‘urban’ dialect.

Apparently this became a concern for some of my co-workers who admonished me this was not appropriate. My thinking was that not being in uniform, perhaps I could better relate to the people I was trying to learn from. Though I understood where my colleagues were coming from, in that uniform or not, I was still a professional cop with one personality, not a man with multiple personalities.

Today I am learning that by imitating speech patterns, fed monitor Peter Zimroth believes I was being racist. I am not sure I totally agree with Mr. Zimroth, though in the context of policing I will not disagree with him. There are situations when imitating another person’s speech pattern can be construed as, and is, disrespectful.

There are also situations like this, where a person imitating other people’s speech patterns goes a whole lot deeper than a police officer imitating another person’s speech pattern.

I am curious to know what Mr. Zimroth believes causes this young woman I met a few years ago to imitate other people’s speech patterns?

The suburb where I live forces customers who hire cabs to share them with other passengers.

One afternoon I get off a commuter train, go the taxi office where I am told what car to enter. I get into the cab’s back seat, noticing a young dark complected woman is sitting in the front seat. The young woman turns, smiles, says “Hello” and informs me the cabby will be right back, before returning to reading the magazine on her lap. Her casual manner gave me the impression this ride is a regular part of her world.

A few minutes later our driver shows up with two other passengers who cram themselves into the back seat, with me stuck in the middle, sitting on the transmission hump.

As we are leaving the station the young woman takes out her phone and makes a call, apparently leaving a message for a person who ran a ad offering an apartment for rent. Listening to her speak as she left this message it was apparent she was articulate and paid attention during English class. I like people who offer a friendly smile and are not wary about speaking to strangers, so silently I wished her luck in getting her new digs.

After leaving the message she made another call, however, this call was remarkably different in that the diction and tone she used during the first call had disappeared, replaced with a diction and tone that I immediately recognized as being widely used in the mostly poor NYC community I served as a police officer for over a decade of my adult life.

Apparently she called her mom, advising mom she left a message for a prospective landlord. They spoke for a minute or two before hanging up and she returned to reading her magazine.

Me, I’m a friendly chap, I like talking to people I don’t know. Most often it amounts to nothing more than idle chat, on a few occasions it worked in my favor by meeting someone who has a service or product that I might be interested in, or an interesting life experience to share.

For instance, one afternoon I am waiting for the deli man to complete my order when a man about my age comes to the counter and places an order. When he is done I look at him with a straight face and say, “So, you’re one of those people?”

His expression turns to puzzled, perhaps even a bit annoyed as he asks, “What kind of people?”

Now I smile replying, “You know, one of those people mom and dad raised to be a “Please and Thank you” person.

His expression immediately changes, now both of us are smiling. We begin to chat, he mentions he owns a computer repair business down the block, hands me his business card telling to stop by if I need some work done, he’ll hook me up.

Because of a silly little remark to a stranger, not only did I make a business contact, I made someone smile. Not a big deal in the scheme of things, but I like seeing people smile so this brief human interaction added to one of the many “little” positive experiences I had in my life.

As our cab was heading for the college the young woman apparently attended, I asked myself if I should inquire about her phone conversations because I was interested in learning why she spoke near perfect English during her first phone call and spoke in another dialect during the call to her mom.

After considering we already shared a smile and some pleasantries, I decided to ask, because I was real curious about her two apparent personalities.

“Miss, do you mind if I ask a questions?”

She turns to face me and replies, “Sure, what’s on your mind?”

“During your first call you spoke perfect English, yet when you were speaking with your mom you spoke in a totally different fashion? What’s up with that?”

She breaks out into a big toothy grin replying, “Sometimes you just got to know when to switch it up.”

I replied, “Cool, thanks.”

After she was dropped in front of her dormitory and we were driving away headed to the next destination, one of the other passengers said, “Do you believe that?”

He seemed somewhat annoyed and I was not about to fuel a potential fire so I replied, “Yeah, I guess that’s just the way some people are.”

Though I was thinking to myself, “Wow, I could not imagine going through life juggling multiple personalities depending on the people I was associating at the moment.”

I have no training for knowing why people are they way they are, though it seemed fairly evident to me that some people are going through life confused, being dishonest with themselves, deceiving others about who they are because they have not figured out who they are, or because they believe they have to morph their personality to fit in with whomever they are interacting with at the time.

I asked myself, why would this young college educated women not speak to her mother as if she is a college educated person?

Did she feel her mom would think less of her if she spoke proper English during their conversations?

What would her mom think if she heard the message her daughter left for the prospective landlord?

Would mom approve or be disappointed hearing her daughter speaking to one person in one dialect and addressing her mother in a totally different dialect?

What began as a short cab ride with strangers, ended with me asking questions I will never know the answer to.

Hopefully this young woman found her first apartment and will someday nurture children who grow up speaking one language, the language that a majority of Americans use to grow and prosper.
