MT @ajplus Police killed #EricGarner 6 yrs ago. #NYPD Officer #DanielPantaleo who held him in a banned police chokehold was never criminally charged, and only fired last year.

What if it was your son, or your brother, or perhaps your Dad or favored uncle or cousin, simply and quietly eating breakfast before reporting to work? Would you be outraged that the law indicates that although they were threatened with bodily harm and illegally restrained, they had to wait to be attacked before taking any action to defend themselves ? What if any one of them had undergone open heart surgery so that their ribs were held together by metal rings and so they feared that the threatened attack had the real potential to end their life? Could they then be justified in taking proactive measures to defend their lives? What would you think about holding Robert Howe, who fits the above, some nine month now because in fear of his life he took steps to defend himself against the threats of four drug addicts (4 against 1) and has become a pawn to be used by an ADA interested solely in getting an indictment, let justice fall where it may? All the necessary documentation, including a video, can be made available. Raised in East Harlem and from a broken home, Robert (Bobby) has a past but some 30 years ago. He overcame his early beginnings, is now 56 years of age, has been married 26 years, is a father and grandfather, an A plus certified IT technician and had just started a new job as a journeyman locksmith after some 5 years unemployed due to the downturn in IT. His condition requires that he take several medications to maintain his life and yet the prison system, on more than one occasion, has denied him these lifesaving prescribed medications. Much has been made of the fact that Bobby injured his attacker during the attack on Bobby but no concern at all has been expressed for the injuries inflicted upon Bobby by his attackers. Do we always need to wait until an unjust death occurs? Robert (Bobby) needs a loud voice to be heard, one that stands for justice. Please help.
Gary Null M-F is becoming a total waste of time. How long do we need to endure gary going on about HIS personal issues with Wikipedia? Within 5 mins. of the show he is screaming about JIMMY WELLS. And, how many F'ing times is he gonna play TUCKER CARLSON? There is nothing clever or cute about this idiot.(tucker) Gary has contributed greatly with his expertise in health & nutrition. However, his investigative journalism & politics are lacking and extremely boring. Why does BAI allow gary to use the station as his personal soapbox? He has his own station. Finally, This may be a BAI issue but it would be nice to know what show is on BAI & PRN at noon, on any given day. A choice of what topic to listen to. For instance, PRN & BAI sometimes simultaneously run the same show, other times BAI has one show & PRN has commentary hour.
As a long time listener and intermittent supporter[sorry]; I can't help but imagine that there has to be a law of diminishing returns; when fundraising drives last as long as a Univision Telenovela! There has got to be a lot of ''born out, tune out'', folks; which pretty much defeats the purpose, ya know.
