Meet Sha Dixon, who was arrested at LAPD Headquarters last week, and our exclusive copy of the letter she was trying to deliver to LAPD Chief Charlie Beck. By Martin Hill
LibertyFight.com January 23, 2015
This is a follow-up to our article earlier this week, Caught On Video: Crazy LAPD Cop Reaches For His Gun In Reaction To Crying 10 Year Old Black Boy. Sha Dixon is with Black Lives Matter L.A. and she is the mother of the ten year old boy featured in that story. She was arrested January 5th attempting to deliver a letter to Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck. The LAPD had blocked the entrance and put up barricades, along with a cadre of dozens of bullet-proof-vest wearing officers. Meanwhile, they were letting all other members of the general public in their building. The video of the exchange is here. Finally, after many attempts to reason with the officers and simply deliver a letter outlining their concerns about police abuse in the black community, Sha said "when you are allowing, you are allowing everyone else to walk past these barriers to walk in that door, but you get some black mothers here, that are demanding it's got to stop, killing our children, and we can't come in?? And we can't come in??? Fuck you, man!" She then started to daintily climb over the metal barricade in an act of civil disobedience and was surrounded by police, who grabbed her and arrested her.
LibertyFight.com is proud to present our exclusive interview with Ms. Sha Dixon, along with a copy of the letter she was trying to deliver.
LibertyFight.com Question: Sha, thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. I'll preface by admitting that I really resonated with you when, after a great deal of time trying to reason with a cadre of LAPD officers blocking you and your group from their entrance, you finally indignantly pronounced "fuck you, man!" to those cops and hopped their border. That was classic, I loved it.
Since I've never heard of you, can you tell me how long you've been an activist- would you describe yourself as a civil rights activist? Did you grow up in L.A.?
Sha Dixon: 1. I am a mother and a concerned tax paying citizen. I consider myself a human rights activist. I am originally from the South, Nashville Tn to be exact. I've lived in France, Amsterdam, Atlanta, and in Los Angeles for 3 years now.
Q. I would like to know how old is your son, and who was the man that helped you over the barrier. Is that your husband?
Sha Dixon: 2. My son is 10 years old and in the 5th grade. The man is Damon Turner, he is an organizer with Black Lives Matter.
Q. Is it possible you can send me a copy of the letter which you were trying to deliver to Beck?
Sha Dixon: 3. I will send you a copy of the letter to beck. We met with him last week and have a meeting scheduled with District Attorney Jackie Lacey this Friday.
Q. Who was the 2nd woman who was arrested that day?
Sha Dixon: 4. The lady who I was arrested with is Dr. Melina Abdullah. She is a professor at California State University, Los Angeles.
Q. Do you feel that there is a racial divide in this country, or, aside from that, do you also feel that there is a divide of police vs. the people, both black and white?
Even if you contend that minorities have had it worse for many years, as I would definitely concur, I believe that people of all races have been attacked and victims of this fascist police state. Maybe it's only recently that the whites are feeling the brunt of what people of color have felt for years?
Sha Dixon: 5. There is definitely a racial divide in this country. Black bodied folks have been targets of hate, anger, oppression, and aggression since we were enslaved and brought here. Since we are the minority we are an easy target. Many white Americans don't care that at least 1 black person is murdered by a cop or vigilante everyday bc they aren't being killed at this rate. We live in a militarized police state so black communities are now occupied but white communities will be occupied as well in the future if we don't stop police violence. One of Black Lives Matter's national demands is to De-Militarize the police.
Q. Specifically, why did the LAPD say they arrested you? Were you mistreated?
Any plans for a lawsuit?
Sha Dixon: 6. The LAPD illegally arrested me and did not file charges against me. They did however walk me through 3 police departments. They videoed, photographed, wrote down my information, and fingerprinted me at 2 precincts. They also transported me to each precinct in a car with 3 cops. My attorney and I are still weighing our options regarding filing a lawsuit.
Q. How long did they detain your friend and was she charged?
Sha Dixon: 7. Melina went through the same arrest process as me. We were detained for about 6 hours.
Q. Tell me how that makes you feel that the cop reached for his gun when your son was upset.
Sha Dixon: 8. Seeing the cop reach for his gun in response to my sons cry was disturbing, alarming, sickening, and saddening. I was and am completely disappointed with the officer. Had that action lasted 1 second longer my son could have been dead. That is my concern. Cops are trigger happy and afraid when black bodied folks are around. They are quick to shoot and kill us because they are not held accountable for their actions. The LAPD kills more community members than any other police department in the country. I became an activist because I fear for my sons life in this country. This video is a great example of my concern. No mother should have to live with the fear that a public servant will kill their child. Unfortunately, that is the reality of every black mother in this country.
LibertyFight.com: Thank you very much for your time.

Martin Hill interviews Vincent Arias:
I have over seven million views on my youtube channel. But this video, with only 6,000 views, is still my absolute favorite. Be sure to watch this powerful video of a man who was shot by cops, charged with attempted murder of a police officer, spent 2 years in prison and was acquitted of all charges by a jury of 12, without a lawyer, representing himself!

LAPD To Hold Two Public Meetings on Use Of Officer On-Body Cameras 1/9/15
With hostility, suspicion and distrust between police and the public becoming more pervasive in recent years, LibertyFight.com applauds this move towards transparency on behalf of LAPD and the Los Angeles City government. I encourage everyone in the Los Angeles area to attend these meetings.
Introducing RandPaulZionist.com: Because We Really Need To Do Better In 2016 12/23/14
This site will be a clearing house for Rand Paul Zionist information- keeping a close watch on Randy as he ramps up to his attempted 2016 presidential bid. As someone who heartily supported Ron Paul for president, it's offensive to me that Rand would use his father's support & money base to get elected to the U.S. Senate and then betray his constituents to the degree that he has. Starting with endorsing Romney, slathering at the 'wailing wall,' etc. etc. You may not know that Rand has actually admitted in official Senate speeches that he "meets with Israeli groups daily," a story I broke last year. There are many similar stories in our archives.
I realize that Rand Paul's rhetoric on domestic issues and supposed 'limited government' are better than all the other legislators in Congress. But I believe there is a very serious reason that we as Americans need to reject people like Rand outright, and we should admonish and shame them publicly. The bottom line is that you can promise to 'cut government' all you want, but if you support the maniacal neocon-Zionist foreign policy of giving trillions to Israel and defending Israel at all costs, you're not a friend to Americans or an advocate of peace. Not to mention my good friend Greg from Houston, who made international news in 2010 when he confronted George H.W. Bush in a pizza place and called him a piece of ^%$# Zionist murderer, is helping me with the site. Stay tuned! ;-)
Rand Paul to Ferguson: "Come on guys, you got to wait to have your kids." (Government Meddling in Procreation: Is Rand Paul a Crypto-Eugencist?) 12/1/14
"Birth control is not our business. I cannot imagine anything more emphatically a subject that is not a proper political or governmental activity ... or responsibility," President Eisenhower said in December 1959. Oh how things have changed, with even supposed 'limited government' politicians promoting 'family planning.'
Don't let that cop search your car! (The Supreme Court held that the Fourth Amendment prohibits a police officer from further searching a vehicle which was stopped for a minor traffic offense once the officer has written a citation for the offense.)
"The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. the choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to "the slavery of sin." [CCC 1733]
"Freedom is exercised in relationships between human beings. Every human person, created in the image of God, has the natural right to be recognized as a free and responsible being. All owe to each other this duty of respect. the right to the exercise of freedom, especially in moral and religious matters, is an inalienable requirement of the dignity of the human person. This right must be recognized and protected by civil authority within the limits of the common good and public order." [Catechism of the Catholic Church 1738.].
A 'Mission' lecture series on The Four Last Things: Death, Judgement, Heaven, and Hell: - By Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea
This is an absolute must-hear from my favorite website, AudioSancto.org. I highly recommend this five part series of free audio lectures by this traditional Catholic priest on the most important things which we all will face. (Of course we will experience only three of the four last things, since a person can not go to both Heaven and hell.)
Did you know that the United States government willingly helped slaughter tens of thousands of Catholics in North America only 80 years ago? It was called the Cristero War, a Masonic led slaughter of Catholic freedom fighters. Below is our work documenting the matter. I also highly recommend the excellent film For Greater Glory which was released in July 2012.
Part 1: When the U.S. government supplied ammo & military planes to kill thousands of Catholics 9/18/13
This is an expose on the U.S. government's role in the slaughter of tens of thousands of Roman Catholics in Mexico fighting for their freedom to simply practice their faith. For naive well-intentioned Catholics who believe that we should always trust the government, these documented facts should be a real wake up call. As Archbishop of Baltimore Michael Joseph Curley stated at the time, "Our government has armed Calles's killers!"
Part 2: Admitted Fact: U.S. Govt supplied 10 Million rounds of ammo, 10,000 Rifles, planes & tanks to slaughter thousands of Catholics 10/17/13
LibertyFight.com has further documented many original sources which confirm for the record that the U.S. Government supplied directly from United States arsenals ten million rounds of ammunition, ten thousand Enfield rifles, machine guns, & military aircraft to slaughter innocent Catholics. We found Testimony taken at the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations heard in 1920 and the original New York Times newspaper articles reporting the military supplies ordered by president Herbert Hoover.
U.S. Senate Testimony On the Cristero War April 29, 1920 On Thursday, April 29, 1920, The United States Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations heard Testimony taken at Washington D.C. Among the many people who testified were Fr. Francis P. Joyce, a Captain and Chaplain in the United States Army, Monsignor Francis C. Kelley, President of the Catholic Church Extension Society of the United States of America, and Catholic nun Mother Elias De Sta Sacto, of the Discalced Carmelite Order. Note that this testimony was taken on April 29, 1920, which proves that the countless abuses, murders and sacrileges enacted upon Catholics by the Mexican and United States Governments began much earlier than 1926 and extended much later than 1929, as is the period commonly referred to when discussing the 'Cristero War.'
"...My friends, have we not learned that modern wars settle no disputes? By this time are we not dissillusioned? Do we not realize that wars are the enemy of democracy? Do we not appreciate that poor men- the laborers and farmers- pay for all wars- pay with their lives or their liberties?"
Fr. Charles E. Coughlin of Royal Oak, Michigan had one of the most popular radio shows in the U.S. during the late 1930's. At his height of popularity, upwards of thirty million listeners tuned in to his radio show each week and he received 10,000 letters per week with a clerical staff of over 100 people. He advocated a sound money system, abolition of the Federal Reserve, a non-interventionist foreign policy, and was a stringent opponent of both Nazism and Communism, which he pointed out was funded by corrupt Jewish interests and international bankers. Fr. Coughlin exposed war-mongers and government propagandists, which made him a real threat to the establishment. He was a devout and influencial priest who stressed the Gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ. The government banned his programs and threatened to arrest and imprison him. I consider Fr. Coughlin one of the wisest and greatest American heros ever. His material is an absolute treaure, a must-see.
His work, in retrospect, was prophetic and still holds true today.
There is a well circulated clip of Fr. Coughlin on stage at an Illinois rally shouting about the treasonous politicians in Congress who refused to oppose the Federal Reserve Bank's control of American money, noting "They're not even Americans, these so-called Democrats and Republicans!" [Father Coughlin speaks against the Federal Reserve.]
An influential critic of president Roosevelt and America's empirical foreign policy, Coughlin became the target of FDR himself, who was temporarily successful in getting Coughlin kicked off the air.
LibertyFight.com has put together seven articles documenting specific aspects of the brilliant and heroic work of Father Charles E. Coughlin. I have compiled hundreds of newsletters, pamphlets, books and recordings written and spoken by this priest who to this day is shamefully and dishonestly smeared as un-American and an 'anti-semite'. In reality the exact opposite is true. A close examination of Fr. Coughlin's work is important for a revealing documented historical perspective. Also, it relates to the situation today because the same war-mongers, bankers and internationalists about to start World War III by getting the U.S. entangled in a completely fraudulent, unwinnable, an unnecessary war in Syria. As the saying goes, there is nothing new under the sun.
I encourage everyone to download Fr. Coughlin's absolutely invaluable books and listen to his recordings. More posts of interest will come in the following weeks and months as time permits. The story of how I came across this great historical figure is here. Resources are at the bottom of this page.
