Police in Philadelphia Brutally Beat 3 Black Men.

What's this now?

Does anyone know just what these three poor guys did? I don't.
I do however see what these cops are doing and I don't like it at all.

I sure hope the people of Philly get out in the street and voice their
opposition to this kind of treatment

Here are a couple of definitions of lynching. What do you think? Am I pushing it?

Lynching --   is when a mob consisting of a large group of people (tens, hundreds) take the law into their own hands in order to kill or injure someone accused of wrongdoing.

Lynching --  is a form of violence, usually murder, conceived of by its perpetrators as extra legal punishment for offenders or as a terrorist method of enforcing social domination. ..

The UK Black podcast

 The UK Black podcast is one of my favorites.  I'm a bit pressed for time and can't really take the time to write it up just now but I definitely recommend to anyone who has any interest in the African or Caribbean communities in Britain. They compress 20 minutes out of the 45 hours of weekly Black BBC broadcasts and present it as an informative podcast. Check it out.
