Law & Disorder

15 year old Jaheim McMillan murdered by Gulfport police; Anniversary of Mario Woods murder by SFPD; plus OMCA’s Angela Davis exhibit

On today’s show, we begin with our weekly State Terror Roundup.

We are turning our attention to Gulfport, Mississippi where on October 6th, 2022 police murdered 15 year old Jaheim McMillan in front of his four friends in the parking lot of a Dollar Tree Store.  Activists are headed to Gulfport this weekend from across the country to demand the police release the footage of the shooting. We will be joined by Melina Abdullah, co-founder of the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter and co-founder of Black Lives Matter Grassroots. Andrew Joseph, Jr is the father of Andrew Joseph III, who was killed after being struck by a vehicle after being improperly ejected by sheriff deputies from the Florida State Fair in 2014. Elayjiah Wooley, an activist from Oakland who founded Free My People – a social media platform to spread mass awareness about police brutality and racial discrimination for impacted communities. And Leo Carney is a freelance journalist in Mississippi, as well as an organizer with the ADOS foundation which uses data-driven advocacy to inform and affirm the need for a federal reparations program and a transformative Black agenda. We also hear from Jaheim McMillan’s aunt, Natasha Boyd, describing her nephew Jaheim.

Friday December 2 is Mario Woods Angelversary, we speak with Gwen Woods, Mario Woods mother. Mario Woods was killed by SFPD on December 2nd, 2015 in the Bayview neighborhood of San Francisco. He was 26 years old when he was shot by as many as 15 rounds fired by five officers. His murder ignited massive protests, including a hunger strike, and unity among police accountability activists on both sides of the Bay bridge who routinely shut down BOS, police commission meetings and engaged in direct actions like “waking up former Police Chief Greg Suhr” who we ultimately succeeded in getting removed from office.

This week’s Artist Resistance in Residence is Lisbet Tellefsen, a Black archivist, collector and curator, who is one of the contributors to the current Angela Davis exhibit at the Oakland Museum of California. She is also a UC Berkeley Black collaboratory fellow.
