The struggles for justice by the families of people that have died in police custody.
In 1969 David Oluwale became the first black person to die in police custody in Britain. Many others have died since then. None of the police officers involved have been convicted of these deaths. In this documentary, the families of these victims ask “Why not?”
This is a blow by blow account of the relentless struggles of the families as they find out how they lost their loved ones in extremely violent deaths at the hands of police officers. Each family is met with a wall of official secrecy and the film documents how they unite and challenge this together. The documentary uses powerful exclusive footage filmed over a five year period and witnesses the families pain and anger at the killings. It documents the fight to retrieve the bodies for burial, the mockery of police self-investigation and the collusion of the legal system in the deaths. The film asks why an accused killer in a police uniform is not judged by the same standards as the rest of society.
I N J U S T I C E documents the horrific loss of life at the hands of the state and it’s attempts to cover up these killings. The British police have been responsible for hundreds of deaths and have walked free.The families of the dead want justice and they will not stop until they have got it.

Woke up this morning to a tweet that said “Hey plz check my new music video. Deep and real rap I hope you enjoy the story behind it” …Now, normally I don’t pay much attention to those kind of tweets coz I’ve been let down a few times, some random yout chatting about killing a man or how boasting much weed he smokes -you know- the general stuff that been glamorised by the Music Industry to help keep Working Class kids down or in Privatised Prisons (aka Prisons for Profit)…
But on this occasion, I was pleasantly surprised coz the way the young Emcee gets into his story is really creative and really clever, the video has been shot and edited very well, the music takes its own course brilliantly and its something to be proud of.
But another reason I’m putting this up is coz, you don’t get many young people comming up with solutions to the issues around them, or at least getting a positive message across in the way these guys have. I have to say I’m pretty impressed with their creativity and deliverance. And I hope you enjoy the vid.
Today, I seem to be in the mood for songs like this. Relaxing, passionate, beautiful & soothing… Great voice, great melody, just effing brilliant! The video is quite nice as well, sign language, colours, lights, shadows -glow in the dark paint…whoever came up with the idea -pure genius!
Go on, give it a listen… Only if you’re in the mood for something calming though. ;)
I know I may sound full of myself when I say this…but I know I’ve made a few girls feel this way during my early days. I did it coz I knew just being myself would simply put them off. It’d be too easy. Theres something in that chase. That need. That air of suspense, the tingle of expectation -it all fed the desire for more everytime it wasn’t given.
Funny… staying away & pretending to be uninterested brings out such desires when simply being frank & open about feelings can make people run away…
The name is Jason D'Jehuti, in my mid-20's and I'm London's very own incognito artist, the hoodie behind Peace and Love Propaganda (#palp) art exercise.
I am looking to bring about a positive impact to the art scene through Educational and Inspirational art -plain and simple.
