Los Angeles, CA– marks the two-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd. For most Americans and many around the world, the footage from that moment left an indelible impression upon hearts and minds. But for former Los Angeles Police Officer Joe Jones, the George Floyd killing triggered his first-hand experience with police brutality, racism, harassment and injustice experienced while he was an officer himself! As a result of Jones's traumatic experiences, he now teaches young men and others how to avoid potentially fatal interactions with police officers.
On Tuesday, May 24, 2022, the eve of the two-year anniversary of George Floyd's death, Author Joe Jones will conduct his signature workshop, "How to Survive A Hostile Police Encounter." The event is free and open to the public and will take place at7:00 pm at The Nile restaurant, located at 207 S. Market St. in Inglewood, CA. Individuals can RSVP at http://Truth4Change.life/
The evening will include remarks by candidate for LA Superior Court Judge, Sharon Ransom, as well as a special musical performance by Jones's son–LA recording artist, Casey Veggies. Jones will sign books after the presentation and food and drinks will be available for purchase. Space is limited.
Jones's thrilling biography, "The Tragic Life of a Black LA Cop: Truth 4 Change"-- is a compelling, inside look at the trauma-inducing experiences of a Black police officer during one of the most tumultuous periods in Los Angeles history. His book is a play-by-play of the events that occurred, the responses and the ultimate toll the experiences took on Officer Joe Jones.
"What I outline in my book are the exact strategies I had to use to de-escalate situations and stay alive when interacting with police officers myself," Jones states.
