After the 32nd chapter of Treasure Island, two of the puppets strolled out to have a pipe before business should begin again, and met in an open place not far from the story. Some two months afterwards, the young man was carried on a stretcher to the physiciana€™s house. After this talk, the child would never pass one of the unfettered on the road but what he spat at him and called him names, which was the practice of the children in that part. Now when he was forth of the wood upon the highway, he met folk returning from the field; and those he met had no fetter on the right leg, but, behold! And when he was home, there lay his uncle smitten on the head, and his father pierced through the heart, and his mother cloven through the midst.A  And he sat in the lone house and wept beside the bodies. A little after, they both died, and came together before the great white Justice of the Peace.A  It began to look black for the friend, but the man for a while had a clear character and was getting in good spirits. So the man was cast in the pit, and the friend laughed out aloud in the dark and remained to be tried on other charges. Once upon a time there came to this earth a visitor from a neighbouring planet.A  And he was met at the place of his descent by a great philosopher, who was to show him everything. First of all they came through a wood, and the stranger looked upon the trees.A  a€?Whom have we here?a€? said he. The natives told him many tales.A  In particular, they warned him of the house of yellow reeds tied with black sinnet, how any one who touched it became instantly the prey of AkaA¤nga, and was handed on to him by Miru the ruddy, and hocussed with the kava of the dead, and baked in the ovens and eaten by the eaters of the dead. In the ancient days there went three men upon pilgrimage; one was a priest, and one was a virtuous person, and the third was an old rover with his axe. Just then they passed a country farm, where there was a peacock seated on a rail; and the bird opened its mouth and sang with the voice of a nightingale. At last one came running, and told them all was lost: that the powers of darkness had besieged the Heavenly Mansions, that Odin was to die, and evil triumph. And they rode two hours more, and came to the sides of a black river that was wondrous deep.
And they rode all that day, and about the time of the sunsetting came to the side of a lake, where was a great dun. At the gates of the dun, the King who was a priest met them; and he was a grave man, and beside him stood his daughter, and she was as fair as the morn, and one that smiled and looked down. And in the meanwhile the two lads looked upon the maid, and the one grew pale and the other red; and the maid looked upon the ground smiling. Presently the news got about; and the two lads and the first King were called into the presence of the King who was a priest, where he sat upon the high seat. And the younger son looked in it, and saw his face as it were the face of a beardless youth, and he was well enough pleased; for the thing was a piece of a mirror. But he was like the hunter that has seen a stag upon a mountain, so that the night may fall, and the fire be kindled, and the lights shine in his house; but desire of that stag is single in his bosom.
So the man rose and put forth his boat at the time of the sunsetting; and the Poor Thing sat in the prow, and the spray blew through his bones like snow, and the wind whistled in his teeth, and the boat dipped not with the weight of him. So the man stooped his hand, and the dead laid hold upon it many and faint like ants; but he shook them off, and behold, what he brought up in his hand was the shoe of a horse, and it was rusty. It befell that the Earla€™s daughter came forth to go into the Kirk upon her prayers; and when she saw the poor man stand in the market with only the shoe of a horse, and it rusty, it came in her mind it should be a thing of price.
Now the wind blew through the Poor Thing like an infant crying, so that her heart was melted; and her eyes were unsealed, and she was aware of the thing as it were a babe unmothered, and she took it to her arms, and it melted in her arms like the air. The Kinga€™s daughter made no more ado, but she turned about and went home to her house in silence.A  And when she was come into her chamber she called for her nurse. Now when the nine years were out, it fell dusk in the autumn, and there came a sound in the wind like a sound of piping.A  At that the nurse lifted up her finger in the vaulted house.
So they went by the sea margin, and the man piped the song of the morrow, and the leaves followed behind them as they went. When a skydiver steps to the edge of the aircraft door and leaps away from the plane, he knows there is no turning back. Answer: A The work of the Holy Spirit is to convict me of sin and to guide me into all truth.
Answer: A When convicted of sin by the Holy Spirit, I must confess my sins in order to be forgiven. Answer: A God solemnly warns that the Holy Spirit does not indefinitely continue pleading with a person to turn from sin and obey God.
Answer: A The Holy Spirit stops talking to a person when that individual becomes deaf to His voice. Answer: A The Bible rule is that when the Holy Spirit brings me new light or conviction of sin, I must act at once--obey without delay. Answer: A Yes, if I steadfastly refuse to confess and forsake any sin, I will eventually become deaf to the Holy Spirit's pleading and thus pass the point of no return. Answer: A The Holy Spirit's pleading is like a fire that burns in a person's mind and heart.
Answer: A Jesus solemnly warned that not all who have the feeling of assurance will enter His kingdom, but rather, only those who do His will.
The Holy Spirit pleads with all people (John 1:9), just as the sun shines upon everyone and everything. Never lose hope, never give up on your faith and never stop believing in your dreams because miracles do happen; You just need to believe in yourself.
Would you like to have that kind of experience?A Well, that is exactly what happened to the children of Israel when they left Egypt and wandered in the wilderness for forty years. He's gone too far, and if he should forget to strap on his parachute, nothing can save him and he will certainly plummet to a frightening death. When I confess them, God not only forgives me but He also miraculously cleanses me from all unrighteousness.
Thus, any sin that I do not confess is unpardonable until I confess it, because forgiveness always follows confession. God says that those who refuse to receive the truth and conviction brought by the Holy Spirit will (after the Spirit departs from them) receive a strong delusion to believe that error is truth.
Those who make Jesus the Lord and Ruler of their lives are promised the miracles of Jesus that will see them safely through to His eternal kingdom.
Our loving desire is that you have been led into the presence of Jesus and have experienced a fantastic new relationship with Him. We get to know Him as a friend when we commune with Him daily, follow Him gladly, and freely share with Him our joys and sorrows as with an earthly friend.
Even more important, he is affirming that the Holy Spirit of Christ can be grieved away by my rejection of His loving appeals. A But he promised me on his returnA back to the United States I would be the first media personality to interview him in New York City.A  I never will forget how confident he was that he would return victorious. God is waiting and ready to forgive me for any and every sin I may commit (Psalms 86:5), but only if I confess and forsake it.
As I ignore the Holy Spirit and continue in sin, I pour water on the fire of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus will then doubtless remind them of that crucial time in their lives when the Holy Spirit brought new truth and conviction. He--the King of kings, the Saviour of the world--takes time from superintending the universe to come to you and me for regular loving visits and friendly, caring guidance and counsel. We hope that you will walk closer to the Master every day and will soon join that joyous group who will be translated into His blessed kingdom at His appearing.
The Holy Spirit also has a different effect upon our hearts depending upon how we relate to His pleadings.
He was teaching truth and supporting it from the Old Testament, which was the Scriptures then available.
Jesus is pointing out that when we understand what the Holy Spirit is asking us to do regarding some new light from the Scripture, we must act at once.
As a courtship can be ended forever by the repeated refusal of one party to the other's wooing, so our relationship with the Holy Spirit can end permanently by our persistent refusal to respond to His loving appeals. The word a€?tempteda€? comes from the Greek word peiradzo, an old Greek word that means to put to the test. The darkness that comes from a persistent and final refusal to follow light is the result of rejecting the Spirit, and it leaves me without hope.
He knew that only the Holy Spirit could lead him to repentance and restoration, and he trembled at the thought of becoming deaf to His voice.
What folly, what an unbelievable calamity, that we should ever be too busy or too disinterested to form a warm, loving, lasting friendship with Jesus. Terrible Danger of Resisting the Holy SpiritResisting the Holy Spirit is terribly dangerous because it so easily leads to rejection of the Holy Spirit, which is the sin God can never forgive. It meansA to test an object to see if its quality is as good as others have claimed, boasted, or advertised.
Likewise, a person can condition himself to not hear an alarm clock ring by repeatedly shutting it off and not getting up. The Bible tells us in another place that God finally left Ephraim alone because he was joined to his idols (Hosea 4:17) and would not listen to the Spirit.
Don't quench the fire of the Holy Spirit by repeatedly refusing to heed the Spirit's voice.
Nor do they obey Him.a€?a€?Jesus Clears the Aira€?Jesus says that true assurance is only for those who do His Father's will. They have embraced a theology of salvation in sin or salvation by works--neither of which needs Jesus. Nor do they obey Him.Jesus Clears the AirJesus says that true assurance is only for those who do His Father's will.
Forinstance, if you hear that a certain product is the finest of its kind in the world, it would be naturalA for you to want to check out and test the product to verify whether or not it really lives up to itsA claims. Since the Holy Spirit is the only agency given to bring me conviction, if I permanently reject Him, my case is thereafter hopeless.
The day finally comes when the alarm goes off and he does not hear it.a€?a€?Don't Shut Off the Holy Spirita€?So it is with the Holy Spirit. If the fire goes out, I have passed the point of no return.a€?a€?Any Sin Can Quench the Firea€?Any unconfessed or unforsaken sin can ultimately snuff out the fire of the Holy Spirit. But the Bible also speaks of God hardening his heart because God's Holy Spirit kept pleading with Pharaoh.
The day finally comes when the alarm goes off and he does not hear it.Don't Shut Off the Holy SpiritSo it is with the Holy Spirit.
If the fire goes out, I have passed the point of no return.Any Sin Can Quench the FireAny unconfessed or unforsaken sin can ultimately snuff out the fire of the Holy Spirit.
This subject is so important that God illustrates and explains it many different ways in Scripture. It became unpardonable only because Judas refused to listen to the Holy Spirit and confess his sin of covetousness. The most tragic thing that can happen to any person is for God to have to turn away and leave him alone.
Hence, He explains that He did not really get acquainted with them or know them as His personal friends. If they hadna€™tA had the divine intervention of God, they would never have survived their flight from Egypt or their yearsA in the wilderness. When that day comes, the Spirit sadly turns away from me because I have become deaf to His pleadings. Had Pharaoh listened, his heart would have softened as the sun softens wax.a€?a€?Judas and Petera€?Christ's disciples Judas and Peter demonstrated this same principle. If we commit to do Jesus' will and follow where He leads, He promises that He will help us discern truth from error (John 7:17). Had Pharaoh listened, his heart would have softened as the sun softens wax.Judas and PeterChrist's disciples Judas and Peter demonstrated this same principle. For a clear and penetrating answer, yet also full of hope, take a few minutes with this fascinating Study Guide. Although you didna€™t intend to get into that financial mess, you found yourself in a situation where you needed to see the goodness of God! Lucifer could have been pardoned and cleansed, but he refused to listen until he could no longer hear the Spirit's voice.a€?a€?C. Lucifer could have been pardoned and cleansed, but he refused to listen until he could no longer hear the Spirit's voice.C.
You had heard and believed that God is a supernatural Provider;therefore, in a certain sense, your situation created a moment when Goda€™s goodness and delivering power could be tested. Refusal to obey the Holy Spirit's voice in any area pours water on the fire of the Holy Spirit.


This situation would be the equivalent of you saying, a€?Lord, You say that You are a great Provider, so I need You to show me who You are! They were convinced repeatedly with deep, heartfelt conviction that Jesus was the Messiah--the Son of the living God of heaven. It will lead people to heaven's judgment bar, feeling certain they are saved when they are, in fact, lost (Proverbs 16:25). The word a€?proveda€? is takenA from the Greek wordA dokimadzo, which describes something that has been tested and found to be true and genuine.
It can be also translated as something that is authentic, reliable, approved, trustworthy, and real.A Moses had declared the goodness of God to the children of Israel, but each challenge they facedA gave God an opportunity to prove that He is exactly as Moses had declared Him to be. A My second week at the course I got in early and became bored while waiting for my homeboys. Then one day, after another great miracle by Jesus, the Pharisees told the multitude that Jesus received His power from the devil.
He was truly repentant and later became one of the greatest preachers in the apostolic church. Christ at once told them that attributing His miracle-working power to the devil indicated they had passed the point of no return and had blasphemed the Holy Ghost. Please read Zechariah 7:12, 13 for God's sobering warning about hardening our hearts against hearing and obeying His Spirit's pleadings. A My teammates and coaches were often challenged by my "Just give me the ball and get the hell out of my way" attitude. But they refused until they were stone deaf to the Holy Spirit and could no longer be reached.
A I was not the best athlete on the field or on the court, but I thought I was.A When the game was on the line I wanted the ball in my hands. I Cannot Choose the ConsequencesWhen the Spirit makes His appeal, I can choose to respond or refuse, but I cannot choose the consequences.
But in a broader sense, horao carries the idea of seeing, perceiving, understanding, experiencing, and assimilating into onea€™s self. This tells us that the children ofIsrael saw and experienced enough of Goda€™s power to fully understand and assimilate it into theirA consciousness. The Holy Spirit will seal, or mark, me in the forehead as a child of God (Revelation 7:2, 3), and thus assure me of a place in God's heavenly kingdom.
If I persistently refuse to respond, I will grieve the Holy Spirit away and He will leave me forever, thus sealing my doom. If this is true, and if you take into account that God fed His people every day for 40 years, this meansA 65,700,000 tonsA of manna supernaturally appeared on the ground over a period of forty years! A This manna appeared so regularly, so faithfully, so a€?day in and day out,a€? that after a while, theA children of Israel didna€™t even think too much of it anymore. A A It was a hot evening and the constant in and out of the woods was not a pleasant undertaking.
Supernatural provision became so commonplaceA among them that they forgot how supernatural it was and began to accept it as a normal,A regular occurrence.
What I thought would be a nine-hole outing turned into eighteen holes and a White House visit and a Presidential appointment in 1969.
Thata€™s right a€” if each Israelite ate only one quail a day, in one month it would amount to 90,000,000 quail.
General William Rogers, Hattie, President Nixon and HBA Petey and I would become great friends and in 1965 we would meet again. If they ate two quail a day, the total numberA needed to feed them all for thirty days would rise toA 180,000,000 quail. A The United Planning Organization a self-help community organization was hiring "Neighborhood Workers." A They hired three, me, Petey and H. Thata€™s how many quail it took to feed that crowd of three million Israelites in a thirty-day period. A Two years later Rap would be named Chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee.
A I would become a Roving Leader (Youth Gang Task Force) for the DC Recreation Department and Petey would find his new home in radio at WOL.
The thick clouds of quail must have been dense enough to nearly block the peoplea€™s view of the sun!
A Three UPO "Neighborhood Workers" would go on to establish their own independent idenities.
A Petey would win 2 Emmy Awards and in 2007 there was a feeble attempt to do his life story on the big screen. From what distance did God supernaturally call in the quail to feed the children of Israel?A This phenomenon simply could not be naturally explained.
It was just as miraculous as the 4,500 tons of manna that miraculously appeared on the ground everyA morning for forty years.A How about the water that came out of the rock to meet the Israelitesa€™ need for water in the wilderness?
He is now in jail serving a life sentence for the murder of a black Deputy Sherrif in Fulton County, Georgia.
Do you have any idea how much water it would take to support three million Israelites in the blistering hot temperatures of the wilderness? And consider the amount of water it would have taken to adequatelyA nourish 3,000,000 people and all the animals in the hot temperatures of the wilderness.
Brian McIntyre.A  He was sitting almost alone and there was no one waiting in line (compared to today's media circus).
But because there was no natural source of water, it had to be provided for themA supernaturally.A So God told Moses to strike the rock (see Exodus 17). And once water started to flow, it continued to flowA and flow and flow, providing all the water needed by the people of God.
After experiencing this kind of miraculous supply on such a continual basis, they should have trusted the Lord andA found it easy to follow Him.
Hadna€™t He always supernaturally provided what they needed when there was no natural provision to be found? A  I looked down and notice that all the white media were seated on one side of half-court and all the blacks were seated on the other side of the half-court line. What a privileged generation they were to see such marvelous acts of God!A But in spite of all the Israelites had seen, experienced, and assimilated about Goda€™s goodness, they became hardhearted. It was also used to describe the hardened soil of the desert a€” soil that was so hardened that water was unable to penetrate it and instead rolled right off. Is it possible that they became calloused toA the goodness of God because He had showered them with so much goodness? He stepped in front of me and said "I got it."A It would be the start of the 4th quarter that Mark returned to the press table table and apologize for his unprofessional actions.
The word a€?hardena€? seems to imply they becameA so calloused that nothing impressed them anymore. A There were other mistakes like someone thought a black Judy Holland was VP material---far from it.
No matter how much of Goda€™s Spirit was poured out on them, His Presence justA rolled off them, unable to penetrate their hard hearts.
A It took a minute but in the meantime, he was making an effort to bring about change in his own way.
He changed you, healed you, delivered you, rescued your family,A gave you a new job, answered your prayers, and provided for you financially time and time again,A showering you with blessing upon blessing over the years.
A But according veteran (32 years) sports writer Bill Rhoden of the New York Times, progress in sports media pressrooms around the country are on a slow boat to China.A His recent appearance on the widely acclaimed television news show Meet the Press, he said, "the NBA, NFL and MLB are still dragging their feet. Media pressrooms at Deadline are still the last plantations.A A Pioneering broadcaster and former NBA CBS basketball analyst Sonny Hill and now a sports talk show host on WIP Radio in Philadelphia said, "I am not surprised by Rhoden's statement, very little has changed in media pressrooms. A One of the problems there is no networking among blacks who have moved it up the ladder." A That is an understatement.
He proved Himself again and again, repeatedlyA demonstrating that He is reliable, trustworthy, and true.

A A First, there was a a problem with the PR Men from hell, Brian Sereno and Matt Williams. ItA is true that You have showered me with nonstop blessings a€” and today I want to take thisA opportunity to thank You for every good thing Youa€™ve done in my life. A A It was brought to my attention that Sereno was disrespecting the ladies of The Roundball Report. The situations I haveA faced in my life have put You to the test, and You have jumped at every chance to prove howA good You are. A The meeting was set before a Wizard's game in the press louge but Scott Hall was the lead man.
I have everyA reason to trust Him, for He has proven Himself to me again and again and I know He willA never let me down. A He listened and we disagreed on some points but when we walked away from the table we were on the same page. As you read todaya€™s Breakfast, did you begin to think of all the times God has supernaturally provided for your own life? It would be very beneficial for youA to take a few minutes to reflect on all the times God has miraculously suppliedA what you needed.A 2.
Have you had so many miraculous provisions in your life that youa€™ve begunA to lose your appreciation for all that God has done for you?
A The community and everyone in it was a friend, the old and the young, the black and the white and the healthy and the lame. A I was honored to speak at his retirement held at the arena just before the Bullets moved to Washington and changed their name to the Wizards.A Denny Gordon was in ticket sales and it seem like he knew everyone who brought a ticket. A He was made the scapegoat after being sold out by his assisstant coach Bernie Bickerstaff and others. A The meeting revolved around a charity all-star game scheduled for the Bahamas, the island home of NBA star Mycal Thompson.
A Magic Johnson was one of All-Stars participating.A Representatives from the NBA included VP Ron Thorne, Legal Counsel Gary Bettman and head of security Horace Balmer. A A Gary Bettman is the Commissioner of the NHL, Thorne is somewhere lurking in the NBA, Balmer has since retired and Magic is a role model for Black America?
A A The short lived existence of basketball legend Michael Jordan as a Wizard's player and Executive in the front office.
A After the story broke he and several teammates made light of it during introductions of a game. A He was eventually suspended for most of the 2009a€“10 season.A The thing that I find disturbing about this Donald Sterling charade is that folks are acting like they were surprised by his rants against blacks. A A I also notice the same "Old faces and voices" are called on to respond to the racist acts by men like Sterling---when they are a part of the problem .
A He and Sterling were good friends because "Birds of a feather flock together." A  Check Magic's history out and you will discover the two have a lot in common. A Magic's claim to be a minority owner of the LA Dodgers is another sham (token black face). James Brown (CBS Sports) another mis-guilded brother claiming to be a minority baseball owner and an expert on racism.
A He did finally admit on the late George Michael Show (Sports Machine) "I have no say in making baseball decisions as a minority owner." A His role as a minority owner is to be paraded out on Opening Day as the black face to read the starting line-ups. A A This is the same Michael Wilbon that I had at least two recent conversations about the use of the N word as a term of endearment.
A I have to give him credit, he will at least talk to me face to face and not behind my back.
A I tried to explain that his rationale that his grandfather's use the word as a term of endearment does not make it right today.
A I told him he should not go on national television saying it is okay to use the N word among friends and family.
A It gives bigots like Donald Sterling the Green Light to do the same among his friends and family. A Plus, Michael told me he was not going to appear on the ESPN Show Outside the Lines because the white host had no horse in the race! A A I wish that Magic, James, Michael and the rest of the media experts would defer to black men like Hank Aaron, Dr.
A But they wear the battle scars and have been on the front lines of the civil rights movement in real life and in the sports arenas of America.
A In other words, they have been there and done that.A I guess that is wishful thinking, especially when everyone wants to be an expert on television.


A In the meantime, they don't know their asses from a hole in the ground but the beat goes on and on. A Auerbach would go a step further in the 1966-67 NBA season, when he stepped A down after winning nine titles in 11 years, and made Bill Russell player-coach. A A trailblazers, RED AND DOTIE AUERBACHi»? ON INSIDE SPORTSA Russell would eventually be the first black to win an NBA championship. A There are far too many crying "Foul" and playing the victims in this charade, to include some NBA owners.A Let me start with my homeboy, the great Elgin Baylor who was the Clippers GM for over 2 decades. His teams were perennial losers on the court and in attendance, but he picked up his check every two weeks and kept his mouth shut. A A In his deposition, Elgin spoke about what he called Sterling's 'plantation mentality,' alleging the owner in the late 1990s rejected a coaching candidate, Jim Brewer, because of race.

A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer. A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval.
The game had been played in the Bahamas the previous year without incident or controversy.A It was obvious that there was a power-play being made by the league office to cancel the game. Thorn open the meeting by asking who was going to be responsible if one of the players was hurt during the game? A Magic suggested that the topic of conversation just might be centered around an injury to a player.
I tried to explain that playing the game was no different then one of the players participating in a pick-up game on a New York City playground in the off season. A What is this some kind of plantation?"A The room went silent and Horace Balmer the only other black in the room just shook his head and seem to be lost for words.
A Thorn called off the discussion and promised to get back to us but he never did.A In the meantime, Magic Johnson disappeared and changed his number. A Mycal was a class act but his hands were tied when Magic decided to do his Houdini act.A Gary Bettman now runs the NHL, Ron Thorn is still in the NBA somewhere calling the shots, Horace Balmer has since retired and Magic is the face (black) in the middle of the Donald Sterling charade. A When all is said and done, the real victim despite all of her baggage is the girlfriend (The Whistle Blower) V.

Martin Luther Kinga€™s 1963 march on Washington and 46 years since his assassination in Memphis, Tenn. With the high-scoring Macauley, elite passer Cousy, and new prodigy Sharman, Auerbach had a core that provided high-octane fast-break basketball.

We never could have made it without them.I have given up on the Pigskin Club, but keeping hope alive for the DC Recreation Department and the Roving Leader Program.
BELL 12-25-1940---8-1-2013A A GOOD COP WHO BROKE THE CODE OF SILENCE IN THE WASHINGTON, DC POLICE DEPARTMENT. A The real Serpico is seen leaving the Bronx Courthouse alone after testifying before the Knapp Commission on wide spread police corruption in the department. A In the old days police A would carry a "drop knife---an inexpensive weapon cops would bring along on patrol to drop onto or next to suspect that they had taken out so that they could say that he had threaten them.
A Today you don't even need to do that; all that you have to do is justify the use of deadly force if you are a police officer is to say that you feared for your life, for whatever reason. If the victim dies, that just means there will one less witness around to contradict the test-lie. A In the case of Officer Michael Slager of the North Charleston police, it appears he was being extra-carefulto cover his tracks. A Probably he could have gotten away with simply declaring, as he did in the radioed report, that Walter Scott "took my taser," and that would have probably have sufficed to exonerate him. A But Slager having shot Scott eight times in the back--as everyone can see in the now famous video--perhaps felt that he needed a little help explaining what he was up to. A So apparently dropped his Taser next to Scott's body, which would obviously help to make the case that Scott "Took my taster."A If you think that what happen in North Charleston is a unique case, its not. A Only recently, in another case, a policewoman in Pennsylvania first Tasered a black man then shot him twice in the back as he lay face down in the snow. A Unless honesty is rewarded more often then corruption, the police will lose credibility altogether.
A I wrote a letter to President Bill Clinton in 1994 addressing this very issue, saying that honest cops have never been rewarded, and maybe there ought to be a medal for them, he wrote back but nothing change.
A If enough testi-lying is uncovered, then who is going to believe the police even when they are telling the truth? A A Until now the shoot first fear of my life mantra has eliminated any cause for concern in the taking of life by police. A When a civilian committs a crime, every nuance is looked at, the better to "throw the book at" the suspect.
A The other day I got a letter from a journalist in Argentina who was complaining about police and judicial corruption there. A I wrote back to him, there are good cops, even where you live, but if the good cops don't want to be painted with the same broad brush as the bad cops, they need to come forward and expose the guys who are doing bad things. A Take New York City detective who was caught on camera recently abusing an Uber driver with threats and foul language, A This was truly disgusting behavior. Yet predictably enough the detective union leader, Michael Palladino, was out there making excuses for him, suggesting that, well, it was only one incident, and everyone has a bad day. A Afterward Police Commissioner William Bratton announced he was removing the detective's shield and placing him temporarily on desk duty while an investigation is conducted .
A But this man needs to be demoted to uniform at the very least, or "back in the bag" as we use to say. A Imagine what he is capable of doing under the cover of darkness if he can talk to someone like that in broad daylight. A There are plenty legitimate incidents where police believe, correctly, that their lives are in danger. A I was in a few of those situations myself during the course of my career.A But unless the police forces and society as a whole take action we're not going to be able to distinguish between the legititimate claims and made-up testimony. A A long time ago Norman Rockwell painted a famous picture of a friendly neighborhood cop bending down to help a little boy. A For example; I could name someone who is a great athlete but a lousy human being or I could name someone who is a great human being but not a great athlete.
A Heading the list is Muhammad Ali (The Greatest), Red Auerbach (NBA), Dave Bing (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL), Bert R.
Sugar (Boxing), Lee Jones (NBA), Roy Jefferson (NFL) and Harold McLinton (NFL), finding pro athletes like them today are far, few and in-between. A And that is a sad commentary when you think about the hundreds of men and women I have interviewed on Inside Sports and worked with as a youth advocate (Kids In Trouble). Moore, LB Dave Robinson (2013 NFL Hall of Fame inductee) and WR Roy Jefferson host KIT toy party.
A Sam Jones (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL) and Roy Jefferson (NFL) participate in KIT clothing drive for needy children at Union Station.
A Bert Sugar (Boxing) receives KIT Life Time Achievement Award and Dave Bing (NBA) pays tribute to KIT Saturday Program All-Stars.I had the opportunity to hear an interview on Sirius A XM Radio (channel 126) on the Maggie Linton Show recently, her guest was NFL Washington Pro football player, wide receiver Peirre Garcon. A I have not been very impressed with todaya€™s pro athletes and their give back commitment to their family, friends and community. A He has three older sisters making him the youngest and the only one born in the United States.His father died when he was 4 years old leaving his mother to raise him and his 3 sisters alone.
A My background is similar to Peirrea€™s, my mother had to raise 4 boys alone with an assist from Grandma Bell.
