Purpose of The Forum:

To have an open and honest discussion regarding Police Brutality and the disparaging treatment of Black Lives.  The goal of this forum is to live out M.A.D.I.O.C Inc.’s mission statement of “Restoring our Communities by Encouraging Respect, Establishing Ethics, and Empowering our Youth Through Education”

What We Hope to Accomplish with the Forum:


  ● Encourage Respect: Listening to all perspectives 

  ● Establishing how to be fair to both opinions without attack as well as instilling morals

  ● Understanding/Establishing Ethics: Ethics is the branch of knowledge that deals with moral principles.  Moral principles are what governs a person’s behavior or how the conduct an activity

  ● Empowering our Youth Through Education: “Don’t be Facebook Educated: Let’s Talk Facts”.  Embrace each other’s point of view: Illustrate what has come out of Peaceful Protest? What has come from “uprisings/riots”? Is there a new way to incorporate the two and be ethical in the technique?


Long Term Goals:

Educating our young people on issues that could use their energy and empower them to get involved with:


  ● Hate Crimes Bill

  ● Prosecution and Fair sentencing of officers who have committed these murders

  ● Ban on the use of knee holds & choke holds as an acceptable practice for police officers

  ● The use of force continuum for any police department in the country must ensure that there are at least 6 levels of steps, with clear rules on escalation.

  ● Economic Empowerment Education/ Divesting

  ● Ensure that officer’s misconduct information and disciplinary histories are not shielded from the public

  ● Recertification credentials may be denied for police officers if determined that their use of deadly force was unwarranted by federal guidelines
