Police Brutality Case 11.27.10: Naimah Jones.

Thanks for joining us for another edition of On The Block Radio.

On today's show:

PA Prison Report Headlines.

-Prisoner transferred out of state in retaliation for filing grievances

-Continued solitary confinement torture at SCI Coal Township


On today's show, we continue our documentation of police brutality incidents occurring in the United States with this post of an interview with Inas Shabazz about the recent acts of police brutality against her sister, Naimah Jones, on November 27th.  In the early hours of the second day after Thanksgiving, Naimah Jones was choked, thrown to the concrete, and tasered several times in front of her home in North Philadelphia as her children looked on.  Her sister asserts that Naimah did not physically resist arrest and the attacks were unjustified.

The attacks were preceded by a verbal exchange between Naimah and a police officer regarding the children she had left locked in her car as went into her home to retrieve some items.

She is facing felony assault charges.  Her sister, Inas Shabazz, tells the story. 

Special Thanks.
