SAFETY MATTERS Campaign with 27th Street Tobacco owners and Candidate Andrew Shaw

PEOPLES' Tribunal of Milwaukee Patterns & Practices
January 29, 2016
MILWAUKEE - Day 38 - Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC takes another step in the PEOPLES' Tribunal of Milwaukee/PTOM documentation for patterns and practices that affect CORE CONSTITUENTS of Milwaukee.  

PTOM is the 20-month (DECEMBER 22, 2015 - SEPTEMBER 22, 2017) Pattern and Practice probe of TRENDS/behaviors related to city-county-state-federal executive, legislative and judicial branches of government that is running parallel to the United States Department of Justice Community Oriented Policing Services (DOJ COPS).

PTOM Safety Matters Campaign
February is African American History Month.  MPA LLC recognizes 2016 as a LEAP year and will implement MPA LLC SAFETY MATTERS Initiative with a "Leap of Faith" by commercial leaders - one-step and one-success at a time.   Our focus is to re-define, re-brand and UN-TRAP hidden talent at the neighborhood and census tract level.

We will kick-off our census tract Drug Safety Campaign in Aldermanic District 4.   It is  working with the Hidden Talent - commercial and residential - stakeholders for LAW & ORDER patterns and practices for capacity building.  

"We are glad to have you Mary to help us.  We should have known you before now, said Farrah and Tufail." 

We will start with the engagement of leadership and neighborhood stewardship with a collaborative agreement with the store owner of 27th Street Tobacco, Hazim Farrah and property owner Amjad Tufail, 848 N. 27th Street.   Two business owners that have been working to ensure that their property and store was free of negative appearance and working to be a partner with the neighborhood.

"We are fortunate to have Mr. Farrah and Mr. Tufail off 27th Tobacco at the table and engaged in Safety Matters commercial leadership of prevention and intervention of patterns and practices that will grow the neighborhood, promote gainful employment, increase business development, promote safety and beautification of the area they choose to do business in".

Candidate for Alderman Andrew Shaw - District 4
"We are also pleased to have the leadership commitment and support for Safety Matters leadership from intervention and prevention from Aldermanic Candidate Andrew Shaw, Alderman for District 4, a resident of the area and local attorney.

He knows the business men in the area and has a candidate sign on the window.

Expectation
Leadership, stewardship, partnership, mentorship, citizenship, ownership and scholarship is the expectation of commercial and residential participants of each neighborhood.  Creating Patterns and Practices that sends a message of SAFETY MATTERS.

We are partnering with LIKE MINDS and will start with the store owner and property owner of 27th Street Tobacco.

TODAY's announcement is Lunch & Learn Wednesdays - one hour and a half - for a look at Safety Matters for Neighborhood - Prevention and Intervention.  It is the hands-on patterns and practices of each Milwaukeean and/or business to ensure safety at the census tract level.  
MPA LLC will look at how members of media, information technology, law enforcement, education and District Strategists (Volunteers - self-appointed and referred to represent their aldermanic and county district) can help mold habits of change. 

Speakers from media, information technology, economics, social justice, executive, legislation, judicial and law enforcement are asked to the forum for input and take away reform.  A special viewing is on how pattern and practices of the public square genres affect safety matters in Milwaukee.  How prevention and intervention can drive a holistic care to improve safety matters one Wednesday at a time.

The forum is hosted by MPA LLC, District Strategists and Well-wishers of Safety Matters in Milwaukee.

  • Write-In Candidate Alderwoman District 2

  • Candidate Alderman District 4
Pardeep Kaleka provided the first engagement - his experience with violence as a member of a family that lost the head of the household and religious Sikh Temple leader (his father) as well as his role and responsibility as a police officer at the 7th District in Milwaukee.  He shared the loss of his father and his near experience of shooting a man that had a toy gun and was mentally ill.  The incident as a police officer led to his resigning from Milwaukee Police Department.

Candidate Verona Swanigan spoke of her candidacy and programs of change she brings to the table for to address crime and training.

Write-in Candidate Jackie Clark Ivy spoke of her ideology of Moral Decay and Cop Watch program that she has for her campaign in District 2 and  bringing the narrative to the table for implementation during the PTOM.

Candidate Majungaray Watts, District 6  and Candidate Randy Jones, District 7 narratives are about the business of Law & Order engagement in the districts they are running in. 

Candidate Andrew Shaw, District 4 narrative spoke the importance of "economic development", his $Billion Campaign and the importance of "increasing voter turnout". 


Law & Order
Law & Order is the end-result of the PEOPLES' Tribunal.
Safety Matters (multi-faceted) is the crux of settling a city besieged by Enduring Concentrated Poverty.  The Infrastructure of the city of Milwaukee has reached a level of disparity that calls for BOLD leadership backed by TRUST and HOPE.  The electorate is at a point of change and reform and INCLUSIVENESS of the CORE CONSTITUENTS in self-sustaining ideas, plans and actions of commitment will be seen by the People.

Top-down enforcement of the present mayor - Tom Barrett and present police chief - Ed Flynn, do not match the Will of the People.

Law and Order for too long have been a "bully-enforcement" by those elected-appointed-hired and donor for hire backed by police, media and branding profiling, over-the-top brutality, murder, and impunity of Police officers.  This is not Law & Order.

The systemic and institutional concerns have been "by design" exploitation, discrimination, redlining, terrorism, disenfranchising for gains.

Milwaukee 7 and Others
Large corporations under the identity of corporate citizen, have said one thing and done another.  They have turned a blind-eye and become complicit on widespread wrongdoing and disenfranchisement.  They have shown how they repeatedly have used segregation, misuse of power, cronyism, and lobbying elected-appointed-hired government representatives for favors of large-scale.

Mayor Tom Barrett
City of Milwaukee
Those during the Barrett Administration have used Milwaukee 7, MMAC and Greater Milwaukee Committee to seize large swaths of real estate, resources, decision-making groups and legislation. They have received multi-year mega benefits from the city of Milwaukee coffers.  Yet, the DWilson report shared the disparity of African-American and other People of Color in business development.  No change.

The Milwaukee 7 and cronies include:  Tom Barrett - Mayor, Chris Abele - County Exectutive, MEDC Council, BMO Bank, The Private Bank, Tri-City National, Zilber Foundation, Milwaukee Foundation, Bader Foundation, Bradley Foundation, Sandy Boucher - Northwestern Mutual, Alex Molinaroli - Johnson Control, Roundy, Lake Express, Harley Davidson, Manpower, Greg Marcus - Marcus, We Energies, Milwaukee 7 (whole counties), MMAC -MEDC, MMAC - Milwaukee 7, Greater Milwaukee Committee, Wisconsin Center District, John Daniels - Quarles & Brady, Michael Fascitelli and Peter Fegin Bucks - NBA Bucks Mega Greed Deal, Streetcar project, Mark Irgens - Irgens Development, Joe Urich - US Bank & BID 21, Rick Barrett - Couture and Moderne, Bob Monnati - Mandel, Gorman, The Fix, Wendy Baumann - WWBIC,  BUBLR Bike, Boys and Girls Club and many others at the coffers annually to draw-down funding, tax credits, federal funding endorsements, appointments to boards, committees and authorities; as well as, receive other resources earmarked for the population of Milwaukee - 3/4 African American, other People of Color and Work Challenged.

and 
Chris Abele-Milwaukee County Executive],  who met downtown for the September 15, 2015, braggadocious Downtown Renaissance Luncheon where Tom Barrett, mayor and Chris Abele, County Executive joined the cast of braggers of the "We Got this Money and control of economic development - NEVERMIND the true owners of the resources and their quality of life and economic development needs".  

It was a classic example of how the CORE CONSTITUENTS of the PEOPLES' Tribunal must speak to all issues related to SAFETY MATTERS and create an unbalance in Law and Order.

Therefore, behavior of the executive branch - Tom Barrett, Mayor and Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive, set the stage for "disrespect, discrimination, lack of due diligence and disenfranchisement of African-American, other People of Color and Work Challenged Milwaukeeans.  

Perhaps Barrett and Abele can find an EMPLOYMENT position with one of these folk/organizations that have been brought to the kitchen table of the People without authorization.  That's a Firing Offense and /Replacement Election 2016.

The population of the city of Milwaukee is mired in Enduring Concentrated Poverty.  Yet, we have such arrogance and The same ones that have been put-out, excluded, and disrespected of human-civil-legal rights.  Election 2016 opens the door for BOLD changes and exposure of the "misfits" in our elected-appointed-hired and donor for hire government representatives.

Here is where the PEOPLES' Tribunal of Milwaukee will argue and make its case in the "Court of Public Opinion" - followed by the Constitution courts.

The event was a welcomed SUCCESS on Thursday.  It was followed by the 2 1/2 hour Listening Meeting held in Centennial Hall.  At this meeting, over 700 folk regurgitated and recapitulated the facts.  It was where no stone was unturn to seen the message of DISTRUST, DISRESPECT, and DISPLEASURE with Tom Barrett and Chief Ed Flynn.  The citizenry also made it known that the US DOJ COPS project has not been given a passing grade for change.

Stay tuned.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr - "I Have a Dream" - Speak Martin, Speak Martin



I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.


Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.

We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.

The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.

We cannot walk alone.
And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.
We cannot turn back.

There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities.*We cannot be satisfied as long as the negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating: "For Whites Only."* We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until "justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream."¹


I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you have come from areas where your quest -- quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."2

This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.
With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

And this will be the day -- this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning:
My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride,
From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.
And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.
Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.
Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.
Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.
 But not only that:
Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.
From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

                Free at last! Free at last!

                Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!3


Listen more than once.

50 years - August 6, 2015
Last week we entered the 2016 Election season.
We have a number of candidates running this year for the city hall and county government.  African-Americans celebrated their 50th Anniversary last year (August 6, 2015) of VOTING even though they have been citizens in America for over centuries.  We have so much work to do.
District Strategists repesent city-wide 15 Districts
Additionally, African-American males have been seen over and over in brutalities by law enforcement that must be addressed by LAW & ORDER.

The DOJ COPS Probe of patterns and practices of police departments is on its way - as of December 17, 2016.  Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC has launched the PEOPLES' TRIBUNAL to look at and share information along side and for the DOJ COP Probe.

We need top notch and powerful state-of-the-art equipment for ensuring that "documentation", "streaming", "interviews", "focus groups" and "storytelling" of the Milwaukeeans that can give chapter and verse for to make our city better/best for the visit, research, investment of funds and end-game reports - 6 months, 12 months and 18 months in the DOJ COPS probe.  

This is our Academy Awards for justice.

FRIDAY EDITION - MPS Superintendent Driver and team Attendance Summit, it was minus the Leadership of Parents



MPS ATTENDANCE SUMMIT, January 11, 2016
James Madison High School
MILWAUKEE (January 15, 2016)  - The City-wide neighborhood Brainstorming idea with/by/for the People is a great idea to begin to address the issue of "Attendance" within Milwaukee Public Schools. We applaud the thought and effort to outreach to all and engage in hands-on problem solving.

It was a MISSED opportunity when the Heads of the event EXCLUDES the Parents in the Leadership, Stewardship, and Fellowship role.

One of the explications of the dialog to make our largest public school in the state, MPS, top in academics for its student population; it requires PARENTS of MPS at the "Head" and forefront of leadership in the "attendance" and "training" of their children.  

It requires the heads of household of the diverse structures of families ENGAGED in the day-to-day sequence of motivations, behaviors, learning patterns, roles, and responsibilities FOR STUDENTS in Milwaukee Public Schools right-on attendance.  We must start right - to end right.

As the school-age MPS student navigates the day, he or she, are beset with unbelievable threats and negative opportunities that pose weaknesses in the strength of the importance of Education attainment.  The remedy must be systemic and infrastructural.

High School BREAK-OUT Session

PHOTOS TAKEN FROM NBA BUCKS Website
                                         Discussion
The breakouts allowed participants to provide answers from questions by a facilitator.  For the "high school breakout", parents, members of the community, and support staff of MPS answered questions led by Dr. Orlando Ramos, Regional Superintendent - High Schools. 

The input shared included:
  • lack of communication to/from parents;
  • reporting to MPS for attendance by parents and the recording of "attendance" by MPS staff.  The process was frustrating and time-consuming - problematic for parents, especially for parents calling in and removal of error logging of attendance;
  • time changes of school bus company - school transportation without notice and students not picked up;
  • issues of shame (parents and students); 
  • school reminds students of a "prison"; and
  • impactful issues of disparities within the homes.
A couple of very interesting observations were made by a parent that spoke of when she went to school vs today's environment. She spoke of her daughter's concept for attending school is driven by the law - According to her daughter, she attended school because it was the "law".  And, how her daughter spoke of the school reminded her of a "prison".  This is very telling and needs immediate and ongoing tweaking - safety matters, imaging, and subliminal.

Parent Coordinators & Jabari Parker

The high school, middle and elementary discussion groups would have been better served if Parent Coordinators were co-facilitating the breakouts.  It would help install the main partner and the supporter of students, their parents.

Accomplished basketball star Jabari Ali Parker, Forward, Milwaukee Bucks would bring to the table a parent-celebrity collaboration for to support the reasons for school attendance and achievement that demands daily school attendance.  Parker would assist with messaging the importance of "worth-achievement" in hard work for the end-game, graduation with honors.

As a pat-on-the-back, the gift, a token of sports tickets, from the NBA Bucks team, is to remind them that scholarship achievement is first and accolades, rewards, careers, enjoyment; and, gratification comes later.

It would help create an interdisciplinary effort for a pedagogy that links parents, teachers, schools, and members of the community to grow school Attendance at all levels - especially at middle and high school levels.

Parker would engage in the importance of the use of "books", online computers training and the "library" (school and public) whenever he is in a circle by the very young, middle, high school and parent.  

Therefore, the Bucks should be assisting parents with obtaining at least 1,000 laptops to help promote Parent Coordinators from their homesite to ensure communication and linking to the website for quality of life and economic development needed to grow families.

The focus is placed on "school attendance" rather than basketball, Bucks, and a one-time reward of Bucks tickets.

Question:  Do the tickets come with escort benefits since many of the recipients are underage?

Since Jabari  Parker is 20 years old, an African-American from the south side of Chicago, not far removed from high school and college level schooling, he brings much to the table for "right-now" gratification that is connected to achievement in the classrooms. 

This is an excellent opportunity for a joint effort of parent, celebrity, other members from the neighborhoods and MPS school system to use the NEW Wisconsin law of passing a Citizenship test prior to graduation as a prideful act.  The law starts this year, 2016. This way of showing the importance of being a good citizenship by Jabari Parker is his "giving back to the community" - passing it on.  

It allows some forms of Ambassadorship to be created with/for the NBA Milwaukee Bucks, given the Bucks negativity brought on by the Cheaper to Keep Them and $500 million Bill 209 that put in place take-over of large amounts of land for $1, resources in Milwaukee city and county, with a 30-year baggage of Involuntary Servitude for a NEW NBA Bucks Arena and Mega Entertainment complex minus tie-ins of the parents that are the students of MPS.

This is the title of the Attendance Summit by MPS on the Bucks website:

JABARI PARKER HOSTS ATTENDANCE SUMMIT FOR MPS STUDENTS, FAMILIES

The title of the article on the Bucks website is misleading and sends the wrong message". 

This would be a place for the Bucks to address mentorship, apprenticeship and scholarship with a media Internship for students from MPS schools.  There were only young-looking Caucasians following Parker.


Question:  What happened to Marcus Landry?  He is Milwaukee's sons from Vincent High School to serve as a role model.  He was on-off with a waiver by the NBA Bucks.  It is also the "realism" around becoming a selected sports athlete for a national team - a real concern for those who lose their career due to injuries, contract arrangements and/or competitiveness with little to NO sum gain. 

The MPS Attendance engagement allows Jabari Parker, Forward, NBA Bucks, an opportunity for multi-dimensional successes and personal growth as a strategist for scholarship/education attainment through a deep-dive commitment of each student day-to-day Attendance.

Successes gained in Milwaukee can be shared with Jabari Parker's hometown on the south side of Chicago as well as other like cities. 

This role-modeling EFFORT/strategy/collaboration can become a WinWin spike for the nation and its economic development and quality of life issues.

What say you?
