We start today’s show with our weekly State Terror Roundup featuring music by Kofy Brown (follow Kofy Brown on instagram:

Then, we move to Minneapolis: On October 8th, 2021 Alex Mingus was driving his wife to work when he saw a man that was bleeding and needed help. The aid provided by Alex saved the man’s life and he was given an award of valor by the St. Paul Police Department Chief of Police. A video of the award ceremony went viral, where Alex asserted that “Police don’t keep us safe, we keep us safe… Riots work!”. We speak with Alex Mingus, a lifelong Minneapolis resident, a father, an urban farmer who uses Korean Natural Farming techniques, and a firearms safety instructor who runs a firearms training class with the tag-line “They (police) don’t keep us safe, We keep us safe!”.

We go to Gulfport, Mississippi, to speak with Natasha Boyd, the aunt of 15-year old Jaheim McMillan, who was killed by police officers earlier in October. The family is demanding the release of video, that they believe will show holes in the police account, which claims McMillan pointed a gun at police. McMillan’s funeral took place on Wednesday, October 26th, 2022.

Then we bring it back to Davis, California, where Proud Boys fought with protesters at a conservative speaking event at the city’s University of California campus on Tuesday, October 26th. The brawl reportedly involved around 100 people. We speak with Anthony Zammikiel, Contributor to the UC Davis newspaper the California Aggie, who was reporting from outside the event during the fight.

And then we bring it back home to Oakland with Turha AK, speaking about his organization Community Ready Corps’ community event this Saturday, October 29th called Art As A Tool: Beats & Rhymes, featuring performances by Hieroglyphics Crew, Mistah Fab, Richie Rich, Ryan Nicole, Spear of the Nation, The Omar Twinz, & The Turf Feinz. This is a family-friendly event including a kids play area, from 12-6pm at the Kirkham Parking Lot @ 7th & Kirkham, West Oakland.
