Yes I'd Like to Thank the Academy Chapter 12 Preview. Deescalation Training: Dispute Resolution

UPDATE. Peaceful Protests should not turn Violent. When a Crime is committed that does NOT legitimize committing additional Crimes.

Minneapolis is burning.

St Paul is burning.

Protesters took to the streets in Denver, Colorado; New York City; Memphis, Tennessee; Phoenix, Arizona; Columbus, Ohio & Louisville, Kentucky where 7 people were shot & killed at the Protest.

There are reasons we have LAWS in this Country:

Dispute Resolution.

When people cannot or will not PEACEFULLY RESOLVE DISPUTES we have LAWS that settle those disputes in the Justice System.

These out-of-control public displays of RAGE go far beyond the need for ANGER MANAGEMENT in this country.

This does NOTHING to punish & bring Justice to the INDIVIDUAL COPS who MURDERED George Floyd in Cold Blood. This is SCAPE-GOATING others WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MURDER of an Innocent Black Man.

PEOPLE are INDIVIDUALS.

Yes, even INDIVIDUAL COPS.

I can't say it enough.

Current Events in American life along many talking points: Health Care, Equality, Racism, Public Protests & the like were a tremendous influence in "Yes, I'd Like to Thank the Academy: How to Tame the Red Carpet in YOUR Office."

In the middle of the Democratic National Convention, amidst the public outcry over the separation of families along the Texas Border, in the middle of trying to get resolution on a humane Health Care Bill, it's happened again.

This time in Pittsburgh, with the deadly shooting & subsequent street rioting over 17-year-old Antwon Rose.

I am deeply concerned as a Sociologist, as a US Citizen & as a member of the Voting Public with the lack of CIVILITY in this country.

Therefore, I am releasing the first 3 pages of "Chapter 12. DeEscalation: Dispute Resolution & Non-Retaliation" this morning. Read below & Buy the Book. $7 Digital Download

De-escalation Training Dispute Resolution & Non-Retaliation

2016 was one of the most volatile years in recent memory with hostile riots & violence in the streets being an almost weekly occurrence.

We saw the rise of Black Lives Matter. Blue Lives Matter. Cops Lives Matter. And All Lives Matter.

Take for example the stunning retaliation against the Dallas Police Department. There was no incidence of Police brutality in Dallas & yet they were held accountable for incidents happening elsewhere across the country.

Sadly ironic that the most highly trained police department in the country skilled at de-escalating volatile situations was on the receiving end of backlash from one individual who was unable to control his rage after years & years & years of watching violent images on TV.

The network executives making editorial decisions are a huge part of the problem of whipping the public into a frenzy with ABC Disney being one of the WORST networks on the dial with shows like
