Six cops charged with robbery, kidnapping, extortion

Stories of shakedowns, brutality, kidnapping, and theft have dogged a group of the city's Narcotics Field Unit officers for nearly a decade. But despite multiple investigations, cases against them never stuck.Federal prosecutors set out to change that Wednesday, laying out a sprawling racketeering case against six of the unit's former members. The charges paint them as rogue cops running roughshod over the rights of their targets, confident that few would believe anyone who dared complain.As…See More

I'm down for it

I am a lover of truth and what is right. Though at times I have fallen short of my aspirations and lost my way on the path towards freedom, I am not alone. I seek shelter knowing that there are others who share my experiences and understand that we all bleed the same, smile the same, weep the same and laugh the same.

We all need to lean on one another in times like these. Without reaching out to connect to our fellow brothers and sisters, we are alone and our own personal and universal power ceases to exist. Positive energy breeds the same and freedom flourishes, negative energy breeds fire and destroys. The more of us that come together in the truth, the less evil has a way with us.




BY Khalil Gibran

And an orator said, "Speak to us of Freedom."

And he answered:

At the city gate and by your fireside I have seen you prostrate yourself and worship your own freedom,

Even as slaves humble themselves before a tyrant and praise him though he slays them.

Ay, in the grove of the temple and in the shadow of the citadel I have seen the freest among you wear their freedom as a yoke and a handcuff.

And my heart bled within me; for you can only be free when even the desire of seeking freedom becomes a harness to you, and when you cease to speak of freedom as a goal and a fulfillment.

You shall be free indeed when your days are not without a care nor your nights without a want and a grief,

But rather when these things girdle your life and yet you rise above them naked and unbound.

And how shall you rise beyond your days and nights unless you break the chains which you at the dawn of your understanding have fastened around your noon hour?

In truth that which you call freedom is the strongest of these chains, though its links glitter in the sun and dazzle the eyes.

And what is it but fragments of your own self you would discard that you may become free?

If it is an unjust law you would abolish, that law was written with your own hand upon your own forehead.

You cannot erase it by burning your law books nor by washing the foreheads of your judges, though you pour the sea upon them.

And if it is a despot you would dethrone, see first that his throne erected within you is destroyed.

For how can a tyrant rule the free and the proud, but for a tyranny in their own freedom and a shame in their won pride?

And if it is a care you would cast off, that care has been chosen by you rather than imposed upon you.

And if it is a fear you would dispel, the seat of that fear is in your heart and not in the hand of the feared.

Verily all things move within your being in constant half embrace, the desired and the dreaded, the repugnant and the cherished, the pursued and that which you would escape.

These things move within you as lights and shadows in pairs that cling.

And when the shadow fades and is no more, the light that lingers becomes a shadow to another light.

And thus your freedom when it loses its fetters becomes itself the fetter of a greater freedom.

Speak to us of Freedom." is how that virtue is interpreted. Theres a song in which  Kris Kristofferson offers an insight " Freedom is just another word for nothing left to loose". 

Just as Truth is accepted or understood by whoever consciously seeks it, Freedom is a relative searching journey for many. Freedom comes with a responsibility in maintaining ,securing our spiritual and physical well being .

 I like your commentary but the bad Jem song sounds like nikii manag-a-toia...

You probably posted it for the lyrics (which I couldn't get through....)
