In the first half of the show, we discuss the death of Breonna Taylor and the mountain of evidence that has come to light since her death suggesting that her death was closer to an execution than an accident. We also review the relationship between the officers involved, elected officials, and even a real estate developer.
In the second half of the show, we discuss a viral video showing an older Black woman being brutally attacked by police in Lancaster, CA. We give you the details of the encounter and try to reimagine the outcome if we held police to a more human standard of decency and scrutiny.

About Civic Cipher
Civic Cipher is a weekly radio show hosted by Ramses Ja and Q. Ward. This show is dedicated to empowering Black and Brown voices, allowing them to engage directly with their communities as well as the general population. Self-determination is critical to securing a future free of oppressive systems, and Civic Cipher exists to facilitate discussions toward this end. Furthermore, Civic Cipher seeks to inform non-POC allies who may not be privy to these types of discussions and optics. Finally, Civic Cipher seeks to provide long-form conversations in spaces where there is often a lack of significant resources, potent dialogue, or the necessary engagement for facilitating a healthy and productive civil discourse.
