Mvt Atty’s Evelyn & Michael Tarif Warren arrested

from NY Protest Calendar

A little more info to add to what’s below: According to their attorney who was just on Sally O’Brien’s WBAI program, it appears that they were speaking out — not physically intervening — about the police’s brutalizing of a young man on the street when the cops began punching Tarif in the face several times and then arrested both of them. They are apparently being charged with obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct.

I hope folks will support these courageous fighters in any way you can.

One Response

  1. New Year’s Revolution – By Hakim Bellamy

    There was a time when officers of the law were respected
    They were “peace officers”
    More concerned with deterring crime than prosecuting it
    Working with the community instead of against it

    This year
    (Singing Auld Lang Syne)“Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and ne’er brought to mind?”
    I’d have to ask the families of Bell and Diallo

    As New Year’s was on a Sunday this year, let us pray
    That APD resolves to be different
    Instead of revolve to be hit…MEN

    Give me one good cop
    And I’ll give you one less disillusioned, revolutionary hell bent on retribution instead of transformation.

    Give me one good cop
    And I’ll give you one less kid who wants to rep his curb,

    One less mirage deferred
    Turned sandstorm, quicksand-to-hand, spinning wheels
    “Lex, Land or a Path…”
    One less dirty dozen with a badge, “…who didn’t know the half”
    One less proud parent
    Chest poked out like Pops when “Pac-ito” passes promise and proceeds to pedal on paths paved with potential ‘til (crash sound into dispatch sound)
    Dispatch.
    The fast traction slips when Dad gets bagged, gagged and jacked for Driving While Black by the boys in the bluest gang

    One good cop
    And one less version of me
    Cause according to the TV?
    I always fit the description of a suspect in a local homicide
    When the trip is,
    Statistics say I look more the like the victim

    Internal affairs says it’s a black thing, (Applause and guns drawn motion) CLAP-on-black crime

    A healthy serving for one less family seated at a buffet of violence
    One less family hungry for a provider
    All we got is religion so we fast, dollars
    Malnourished so the fast dollars feed antsy hands that shake from BET video withdrawal
    ( “I got that thuggin’ love…”)

    Cops itchy trigger fingers, mothers scratch crucifixes to combat sacrificial examples made out of us…
    We actually relate to the officers better than their families ‘cause we too are in the line of fire everyday…It’s “Dis” stressful
    Ghandi would be ashamed, cause we are the war we don’t wanna see in the world…
    And art imitates the street, not vice versa but Miami Vice…

    I got one too many more than ONE GOOD KID,
    With one bad cop that stopped her from Pebble-in-Bedrock to Peddling snow in a drought for dessert
    When it coulda been one more kid that wants to protect and serve
    Grow up into ONE GOOD COP
    Who’d use The Force to start the “The Truth Police”
    Kinda like the Fashion Police, but twice as blunt…

    Instead of citations reading, “That’s hideous”
    They return repossessed reparation, and give tickets to freedom reading,
    “That sh*t was f*cked up, we’ll upgrade you to first class, aisle or window?”

    The “One Good Cop” Revolution
    Resolution Double Oh Seven
    If you’re in it for the bar fly women, fast cars and lethal gadgets we’ll make you a movie star instead of this not-so-secret agent routine
    Then you can still get back at the jocks that kicked your ass in high school without hurting innocent civilians…maybe date Lindsey Lohan instead?
    She’s a sucker for a man in uniform.

    Resolution Twelve-Thirty-One
    Yeah, the New Year’s one…don’t base next year’s success on getting more arrests than you did last year…though the idea of rehabilitation in corrections is a myth, being a “Good Cop” doesn’t have to be…

    Resolution 4-1-1
    If you see a fellow officer sprinkling some crack on a brother, powdering a crime scene that had just a wee bit too much color, learn from some of them snitches the department keeps around for ego strokin’ and billy-club lovin’ and drop dime on dirty brethren in the Fraternal Order

    Resolution 9-1-1
    Out of Order
    This is the Revolution
    You’re in breach of contract with the community
    The Truth Police
    National Guard of the law
    I thought, of all the patriots, you’d know it’s textbook history book
    Abuse of power causes the people to take up arms
    And the abuse of those people, already “up in arms” can turn once open arms into suicide bombs
    Cause we won’t take being profiled for long
    Soon we’ll a bout face-to-face
    They say “the People shouldn’t fear they’re government”, it should be the government in fear of us, and what we gotta say….

    The Truth is
    Sniping nappyheads at a distance is a welcomed challenge for the gamesman that has everything

    The Truth is
    Any inmate can tell you the biggest, baddest gang in the land wears neither blood nor blue, but black and badges

    The Truth is
    No, the perpetrator ain’t always right, but neither is the police officer

    The Truth is
    You’re a property-protecting pawn,
    A have-not that the have’s play against other have-nots when they wouldn’t even let you piss in an outhouse on Scotland’s Yard

    Truth is
    Being a good cop is as easy as being an honest politician
    It’s hard to find one who’s not drowning
    In a system that perverts the pure until they genuinely believe they can baptize the smell of sex out of their love child…
    So the best intentions going in are often the biggest regrets coming out

    You ask the kids where I grew up
    What they fear more, the streets or the people paid to protect them
    More would say the “protectors”

    In a system of winners and losers, and we’re forced to pick the strongest side to order to survive…
    On one,
    We got a mother that sometimes eats her young
    On the KRS-other-One
    An Over-seer charged with keeping me with-IN-side the chalk-OUT-lines
    Mr. Officer?
    If you ask me which side I think you are on…
    Honestly, I’d have to say, it ain’t mine.
