How Blind Is Lady Justice During Episode 32, our friend Dispo, Assistant District Attorney joined us to give further insight on popular court cases that trend on social media. Dispo defends the court system by showing these cases from law enforcement and the judicial system’s point of view. It then became a discussion on the law vs ethics where Sheens argued that police officers should use non lethal tactics to deescalate dangerous situations.

This episode stems from a viral video which took place on Blue Hill Ave in Boston, MA, that shows the Straight Black Pride Movement hosting an event. A freelance writer/journalist arrived and was confronted, being taken as a Black Lives Matter advocate. From here, writer Arielle Gray took her thoughts to AfroPunk to write about her experience… O Salih Rowe, President of the Boston Chapter of SBP tells us his side of the incident and gives more clarity about the SBP Movement.
