For the 2008 SHP conference workshop<br /> <br /> "The Death of Emmett Till," Bob Dylan<br /> This protest song by a young Bob Dylan is not explicitly about the police as it recounts the 1955 lynching of a 14-year-old black boy named Emmett Till and the acquittal of his murderers by an all-white jury. It does, however, remind its listener of the ways in which law enforcement and the legal system can fail to bring about justice. The death of Emmett Till may be just one instance of such shortcomings, but his example, made into song, represents all groups--women, immigrants and the mentally ill among others--who continue to suffer violence and neglect under the criminal justice system.

That's the sound of the police!" is one of the most famous hooks in hip-hop music and part of the song which launched the rap pioneer KRS-One's solo career, which boasts hardcore production and politically conscious lyrics. "Sound of da Police" suggests that the use of police force in black communities is the same form of social control practiced by overseers during the time of American slavery. KRS-One raps in a dextrous bit of verbal mashing, "Yeah, officer from overseer / You need a little clarity? / Check the similarity!"

During the subsequent trial, activists, politicians and celebrities condemned the killing and organized protests throughout the city. Responding to the four officers' acquittal the following year and ignoring censures from the city's police union, Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band performed "American Skin (41 Shots)" as part of their 10-day tour of Madison Square Garden. In the lyrics, a mother warns her child of dangerous encounters with the police: "On these streets, Charles, you've got to understand the rules / If an officer stops you / Promise me you'll always be polite / That you'll never ever run away / Promise mama you'll always keep your hands in sight." The song title references the 41 times the victim was shot by the police. 14/16* FREEStyle / Poetry LIVE-Verse-Conception #13 Oooppz, im mean #14: [Christmas SPECIAL 2010] tag:blackartinamerica.com,2014-07-16:6557594:Video:322258 2014-07-16T22:25:42.079Z Osborne, Dauwan http://blackartinamerica.com/profile/OsborneDauwan <a href="http://blackartinamerica.com/video/14-16-freestyle-poetry-live-verse-conception-13-oooppz-im-mean-14"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/3A8rUyA9jKMpkSucBGAikY8K**59yEaJeO0pyAAAvucwMLxCiwTGpvnE4DjV9P0OIdJRgMKMTaiJ7qxjYY4gg1FD2lPlIVYS/1072508689.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>SaturDay 16's : FREEStyle Poetry's "AdvancementInterActiveEnrichment" project proudly presents number 13 of F.R.E.E:Agency's live verse conception series.… <a href="http://blackartinamerica.com/video/14-16-freestyle-poetry-live-verse-conception-13-oooppz-im-mean-14"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/3A8rUyA9jKMpkSucBGAikY8K**59yEaJeO0pyAAAvucwMLxCiwTGpvnE4DjV9P0OIdJRgMKMTaiJ7qxjYY4gg1FD2lPlIVYS/1072508689.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />SaturDay 16's : FREEStyle Poetry's "AdvancementInterActiveEnrichment" project proudly presents number 13 of F.R.E.E:Agency's live verse conception series.
