in future, i'd prefer some kind of warning before i'm shown someone being murdered...

I'm sure the dude would have liked some warning before the cop let off a shot

‘Love the Police’… Okay nobody likes predatory peadophiles/ murderers, especially when they’re in the establishment. So…create/ initiate a ‘Police against Peadophiles’ campaign in which Police are encouraged to join in (apart from the ones who are paedophiles themselves).  Bill Maloney says there are many in the Police Force who HATE institutional child abuse but feel powerless against the system they serve.   ‘Police against peadophiles’ banners/ placards/ protest through the square. (Even if Police are there who aren’t directly involved, they will feel strange fighting against a cause that they believe in anyway). So give them the voice they are ‘not allowed’ and watch them either join in or fight back. EITHER WAY, people will be EMPOWERING the police and disempowering the establishment. And the public will LOVE to be in on this as they will protesting child abuse (a passionately sore subject for anyone) from WITHIN the establishment, as opposed to ‘the angry mob outsiders’. Bit of a mind game/ mental test for the police. But I know there are SO many police people out there who want to do something about establishment peaophiles and the people can simply give them their voice, if they can’t collectively find it themselves.

Great Russel. B Dolans a great artist with a conscious message. U should also try UK acts Akala and also a Bristol act called AllFlaws. They are both conscious artists who address social issues.
Thomas Hyle (4 years ago)
but what about all  fucktards who support police violence, no matter how open and criminal?
Dominic Fastbender (4 years ago)
Why is it that the police have somehow suddenly been educated to behave like Judge Dredd?  I don't understand why people are not going more crazy on this. This is not just a race issue.  This is systemic.  Arming police like they are in a war zone and behaving as if they are a military unit is creating the wrong mindset.  Seeing police punch teen girls in the face, execute without trial ( already restrained individuals ) and generally behave as if there was no applicable laws at all you would think that alarms were going off all over the place and there must be calls for stronger safeguards at the highest level The silence is deafening.  Personally, I respect the job they have to do but it seems to me that the lack of safeguards are making it hard for the right sort of policing to take police creating an ever more "us and them" type of engagement with the rest of society.  Bad policing needs to spotted earlier and treated with zero tolerance.  Are people too afraid to come forward and demand change and challenge the way things are? Personally, I had to go through a lot of hoops and really consider hard before posting this comment as I really worry about what repercussions may come for having an opinion which doesn't agree with government policy now we are all under 24 hour surveillance.

Yet again another great Trews  = The True news.. I think these video's are great and they are definitely making  people sit up and think. Helping people understand the depth of corruption and misleading information that's going on in the world today that's trying to enslave the world. Keep up the great work mate.

we are not our material representation of ego, but our true nature is within everything. which means i am not my name nor am i linked to any particular cult, religion, creed and many more secular divisions. i am divine and within everything just as your are all the same. why limit your intelligence to one idea or dogma. as when you study deep in to life to find the true meaning you will find that it is no where to be found. only then can you truly realise that every thing is a manifestation of concious intention , from this realisation you can start to look inwards to find the true source of not only, this time space reality but others too(which i wont go in to now due to complexity). as i write this i am hear but i am also in your head . figure that one? you are me, and i am you.we are all interconnected . we are all as much material as we are higher conciousness or god. the only thing that separates ourself from true divinity is our selfish needs to fulfil superficial tasks that feed a time space continuum and not on our true purpose... saying that we also need to realise that we are all in the right place that we need to be on our level of self realisation. remember all pain is meerly a lesson to bring you closer to the true light of all things...love

YOU KNOW B DOLAN???!?!?!?! jhz
bouncyshak (4 years ago)
3:06 - This! I just want to drum this into the mind of sheeple who are defending cops and their brutality on civilians. The system will eventually turn on you. Race war is perpetuated to keep us divided. Do not dismiss instances like Ferguson. It's not just a race issue, it is a human rights issue. Do not defend the system and forget the humanity of the unarmed victims because they don't currently look like you.
Maria Andréa Alves (4 years ago)
Sorry. But I need to remember this. In 2005 a man named Jean Charles was mistaken for a terrorista  and was brutally murdered by the police. I am Brazilian and I was very sad and I never understand why the police was very violent in this situation? Thanks.

finowa (4 years ago)
A lot of people in the comments are requesting an Immortal Technique interview... Amusingly enough, B Dolan has vocally disapproved of Immortal Technique before. You know, the "fuck you faggot" aspect of Tech's views. Don't think Brand is supportive of that shit either.

Nice job Russell.  Thanks for taking the time to not only do the interview with Dolan, but to post it for all the rest of us.  He's right about the message in underground hip hop.  Intelligent guy and interesting artist.

You should interview immortal technique
Stephen Faust (4 years ago)
Serial brutality by the police has historically best been dealt with by community legal representation. Certainly the people of New York found that true, c.1910-30. Backing up such representations as go to assert correct legal procedure and admonition upon Die Polizei by way of photgraphic evidence taken en masse can hardly hurt the cause.

I'd say hiphop was my greatest catalyst awakening (or whatever you want to call it) Listen to joey badass, the full pro era and beast coast movement are changing peoples life the same as Russell is (but with funky beats and loads more blunts)

Jenny Lynn (4 years ago)
I really should watch this through to the end but I can't bear to see the twisting and turning of the interviewer and the look of utter disbelief on the black guys face. This is why I stopped watching the news or listening to the radio many years ago. Well done Russell for what you do and for highlighting the hidden messages. Love all your trews interviews.

I was actually hoping for ideas as to what we can do about police violence, I don't think rapping is going to help us while we are being beaten to death.

Seems to be more violence and more people in jail, is this a form of Spiritual Starvation, were people lives have no meaning, so they resort to drugs, which is lick a slow form of suicide, and crime is also the bye product.

You should stop doing peacefull protests in the US and carry arms then if it does kick off at least you can defend yourselves from the police that video of the lad being executed in the subway is truly shocking how do you tolerate such police brutality there the criminals. can't wait till its like that in the UK that's going to be nice aye, people need to wake up !

Imo these are not police, police protect the people, including from corrupt government and or laws. These are mercenaries participating in a coup against the people at the behest of the government and should all be treated as enemy combatants by the people.

Russell, I was really disheartened that the anonymous movement in the US was so small. It looked like London had a good go at democracy though! So what is next, why are Americans so afraid of standing up for themselves?  What can I do to help, awakening others is not going to well for me.

Hey Russell, If your checking out real rappers with a true message then make sure you check out Immortal technique, follow his movement. I'm sure you'll connect with his approach and values.

When attack from police is imminet then I think I'd quickly shit in my hand and rub it all over me like the IRA did in the 70's. No nicking for you, job done. Bonus is, you get to sit on your own on the bus home.
