Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
A very special bonus episode as Pip talks with LISA SIMPSON, whose son was killed by police in 2016.
Before going in, know that this episode is obviously a heavy one with many nuanced elements. Lisa has been actively vocal about her feelings and experiences with the Black Lives Matter movement since her son Richard Risher was murdered by the Los Angeles Police Department on July 25th 2016. Not only has she had to face burying her son, and dealing with the aftermath of the law being responsible for his death, she's also had to deal with negative run ins with the Black Lives Matter movement who have made false promises to her for a while now, among other grievances.
It's her experience to share, and her story to tell, and is a layered problem which you'll see as you hear from Lisa. This is in the interest of balance, as Patrisse Cullors of BLM guested on episode 195 of Distraction Pieces (linked below), so it's only fair Lisa has her right to reply.
