Debate 2016-Trump and Hillary
This election is bigger than any I have lived to talk about, because whoever is selected will have the honor of naming supreme court judges who will serve a lifetime. Evidently, if Trump wins, the judges he nominates will have on invisible hoods. This election is not a joke. Trump doesn't like people who don't fit his mold of wealthy and white. You can vote for him if you like, but when he turns his back on the low and middle-income white folks that loves him for hating us, they too will feel the wrath.
But for us, those who will fare well under any president, we must stand for those who will suffer.

I Feared for My LIfe
The boys parents received 5 million dollars although the state/police department admitted no wrong. The parents didn't want the video released. Chicago is already in dire trouble with crime and murders and releasing this graphic video of a white man clearly murdering a teen will probably cause riots. If they had not planned to release the video, the cop would still be out of jail and not charged with a crime. But because it will be released, he was arrested with no bail today. I'm so tired of our men being shot down like animals. Rioting and burning down cities haven't stopped one thing. We must figure out how to stop this mess. I recommend:
- Training officers how to de-escalate the situation.
- Training officers to handle people with mental health and substance abuse issues
- Arrest the officer for murder if his cameras are not on.
- If an officer, does not have his camera on, fine him a large fine.
- If he shoots an unarmed person, make him reimburse the city, and pay the hospital bill of the person he harmed without cause.
Nothing is going to change these racist cops from thinking they can continue to get away with murder, but hitting them in the pockets and taking their badges.
I realize these strategies are not enough, but we have to start somewhere.

Meet Author Chizellé T. Archie
In this modern day epic, Gabrielle deals with the daily woes of teenage-hood, but like most girls her age, her mind isn't all focused on the books. Hers is set on other things like being the flyest girl at Benetton Prep Academy, along with getting her one true love, Andrew Harrison, 23-year old owner of Club Etcetera.
As Victoria tries to balance life, love, and health, she once again gets caught in a web of past treachery and deceit. It's said, what's done in the dark, comes to light, so be careful who you sleep with. Generational curses can be lethal! With her ride or die bestie, Lucy, by her side, will Victoria learn that even in motherhood with God anything is possible? IJS...
In 2010, Chizellé landed on the literary scene with authority, and it was with great fortitude that she penned her debut novel, The Fearfully and Wonderfully Made Diamond, in which her life experiences have allowed her to grab hold and take nothing less, realizing she is a Diamond! She continues the story in the sequel, His Grace, His Blood, His Mercy!
