http://democracynow.org - In Pasadena, California, Black Lives Matter organizer Jasmine Richards is facing four years in state prison after she was convicted of a rarely used statute in California law originally known as "felony lynching." Under California’s penal code, "felony lynching" was defined as attempting to take a person out of police custody. Jasmine was arrested and charged with felony lynching last September, after police accused her of trying to de-arrest someone during a peace march at La Pintoresca Park in Pasadena on August 29, 2015. The arrest and jailing of a young black female activist on charges of felony lynching sparked a firestorm of controversy. Historically, the crime of lynching refers to when a white lynch mob takes a black person out of the custody of the polic...

Speaking at the September 12, 2013 city council meeting in Cerritos, CA, journalist Pieter Friedrich raied his voice in opposition to the installation of a statue of Mohandas Gandhi, stating: Sometimes the truth requires standing the facts you think you know on their head. For instance, Giovanni Palatucci, a Fascist police officer from WWII-era Italy who was once credited as the “Italian Schindler” is now being repudiated by Italians as an abuser of Jews. The Anti-Defamation League and US Holocaust Memorial Museum have both reversed their praise of Palatucci. It’s not too late to change your mind. Propaganda has been exposed before.
