#SaleemSamuelBurks #SOLIDARITY Multiple Guest Artists
#StandWithSalleem #SeeSaleemThroughMedicalSchool #SaleemCanBeAVerySuccessfulPlasticSurgeonInOrangeCounty #PleasePleaseLeadMyBrotherSaleemSamuelBurksToSuccess #CivilRights Additional info: Hi Allies - Good looking out! Here's what I have tonight to share with the ACLU: My innocent brother Saleem Samuel Burks, Age 15, 6'2", about 300lbs 1786 Shooting Star Ave Fairfied Iowa 52556

Dan Burks (Military Retired) 641-233-7175
Cindy Burks 641-2337174
A) #CivilRights Juvenile - This is getting increasingly severe weeks multi artist radio shows n #Solidarity 4 my15yr old bro systemically stalked & incarcerated by popo since age 12 #BigJess

2. I haven't interacted with my brother Saleem in over 40 days but when I contact the Sheriff to file a missing persons report they tell me they can not allow me to file a missing persons report re I'm not Saleem's legal guardian
3. There's hella rumors including he's looking at 5 years & parents aren't talking (they're military so they are trained to be secretive)
4. The Ledger printed the 12 year olds full name home address and UNSUBSTANTIATED charges at his first ambush & arrest at age 12 when THE POPO AMBUSHED HIM AT SCHOOL AND ARRESTED HIM W ZERO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE & ONE OF THE COPS UNDER OATH ON THE STAND TESTIFIED THAT HE BELIEVED that Saleem WAS IN FACT INNOCENT AND ARRESTED HIM ANY WAYS... That's led to most of the last 3 years in & out of lock up. False arrests False Imprisonments escalating into set ups & now he's in lock up looking at an additional 5 years (FOR BEING AFRICAN-AMERICAN).
(B) Again the Ambush at school at age 12 was made with ZERO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE! Saleem & I are from a military family & as a result we are Very disciplined. Saleem felt sorry for this loner kid and made friends with him. The loner kid started a foolish, delusional rumor that Saleem & another friend we're going to bring fire arms to school and murder 1 principal, 1 teacher and a girl. Saleem would Never Ever do such a thing and he would Never Ever even joke about something like that because of it's seriousness. So the rumor got around to the principal who freaked out and called the cops who freaked out & with ZERO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE AND FULLY BELIEVING IN SALEEM'S INNOCENCE the cops ambushed my very well behaved brother when he arrived at school in the morning AND FULLY BELIEVING IN HIS INNOCENCE arrested him anyway! And it continues getting worse when the public defender tried to intimidate the completely innocent 12 year old Saleem into pleading to a felony lesser than Solicitation when he was COMPLETELY INNOCENT IN THE FIRST PLACE! Fortunately at that time our parents were able to save up enough funds to higher a lawyer specializing in racism & all charges were dropped. Still things got worse as the cops began harassing, stalking, arresting, & setting up Saleem on a regular basis. By this time my parents had run out of money and now Saleem is 15 & it has been over 40 days since I have had contact with him. This is a gross abuse of authority over a juvenile.
Can u help? Sending out for press and investigate reporters off of that? Please say yes....nHow do we save this kid? All options on the table.
Let me hear from you. #BigJess 424-239-9789
(Q) What state is he in?
(BigJess) Fairfield, Iowa (Jefferson County)
(Q) What is he being charged with?

(BigJess) Start at point 2 & read to the end in detail and that is exactly what we have. Make special note of point 4. Which proves to me he was ARRESTED FOR BEING BLACK #BlackLivesMatter Its exactly like Michelle Alexander's book The New Jim Crow and SYSTEMIC RACISM still thrives in Iowa. One informant alleges members of popo are KKK and myself and my family have received death threats from surrounding towns. Confederate flags r still displayed here and only this year coming down one lawsuit at a time. It's disgusting and now we have to save my juvenile black brother who was allegedly assaulted by an adult, taken to ER and popo came to ER and arrested him. It has been over 40 days since I last interacted with him. I miss him & am worried as hell; we need probing lawyers and investigative reporters. The more media the better building to a mass movement supporting my brother Saleem, peer pressure goes a long way. Can u reach out through your connects? Please say yes

Feel me?
(Q) I want to help you, but why aren't you talking to the local ACLU chapter?
(BigJess) They don't give a shit, NAACP is even worse.
Thanks for your efforts. I look forward to hearing your results.

Tastemaker Supreme David Sax on GREAT TASTE with Steve Boss

Sax is great company, a writer of real and lasting charm.”—New York Times

Pomegranate juice is out. Kale is in. Greek yogurt is here to stay. Food trends are all around us—and they’re much more influential than we think. James Beard Award-winning writer David Sax is the author of The Tastemakers, a new book that examines how food trends have the power to change our culture—and the economy, marketing, business, and health—at a revolutionary pace.
“The most successful food trends reflect what’s going on in society at a given time. The cupcake trend reflected a desire for comfort and childhood simplicity in the years after 9/11. The fondue trend took off at a time when Americans were moving out to the suburbs and wanted something a little more sophisticated than, say, a Jell-O salad,” says David Sax, a food and business writer with an eye for the bigger picture. Food trends are not only a collection of photos on Instagram. They have an everlasting effect on our culture, workforce, economy, health, and day-to-day lives. Coffee, pizza, bacon: these are all former trends that sparked massive change in global trade, the food industry, and how we eat together as a family. This is the subject of Sax’s new book The Tastemakers: Why We’re Crazy for Cupcakes but Fed Up with Fondue: “a romp” through the food industry that will “leave readers wondering about how susceptible we are to the charms of any new food” (The New York Times).

Sax is also the author of Save the Deli: In Search of Perfect Pastrami, Crusty Rye, and the Heart of Jewish Delicatessen. His writing appears regularly in the The New York Times, Bloomberg, Businessweek, and Saveur. His next book, The Revenge of Analog, will examine the ways in which analog goods, ideas, and experiences are seeing growth and success in the so-called digital era.

The Fifth Freedom- To Dream

G Man'All the good times were ours, in the land of milk and honey' ... That, and many similar sentiments, in the next installment of Centripetal Sounds. My twin brother suggests that the freedom to dream is the last refuge for a man of peace. Here are some fine examples of that in the context of the lyric content in the playlist. 'Takin' the time for dreams; come fill yourself with dreams; be yourself and live a little; you'll know if it's real if you know how it feels; there's always a way, don't let them fool you; put down your toys, the world needs your voice, and it sure could use your light; if you're my friend don't keep me in darkness, turn me on, tell me of love, speak of light; freedom tastes of reality'. By my count this is the 464th time I have put together a show. Just as exciting as number one. Enjoy... The G Man

On today's show we'll be listening to some of my favorite funk, soul and brass from 2015. 15 different artists, 15 great songs. Stream it live November 17th, 5pm-6pm CST right here on KRUU radio.

Maddi's Fridge by Lois BrandtCan kids help combat food insecurity in children? Yes, says author Lois Brandt, and her picture book Maddi's Fridge shows them how. As a little girl Lois didn't know how to help when she discovered her best friend's family had no food to eat. As a grownup, she researched strategies and then penned Maddi's Fridge so today's kids wouldn't feel as helpless as she did. Publisher Flashlight Press donates 10% of this book's profits to help fight childhood hunger, and Lois waives her author visit fees to schools that organize food drives.
