    Tensions across America continue to rise, will things explode? Opioid usage in counties that heavily voted for Trump is explored.

    On this episode of "By Any Means Necessary" host Eugene Puryear is joined by Rev. Dr. Madeline McClenney-Sadler President and Founder Exodus Foundation and Charles Witherspoon, Principal of Witherspoon Enterprises to talk about what the next police brutality incident would add to the current tensions in America, the fight to end mass incarceration within a Trump Presidency, and the continued code of silence among police in America.

    In a special third segment host Eugene Puryear is joined by Kathleen Frydl, author and political historian, to talk about the high rates of opioid usage in counties that heavily voted for President-elect Trump. The pair also discusses identity politics, race, and class as Democrats look to re-frame their party.

    The opening monolog talks about the efforts of North Carolina Republican Governor Pat McCrory to steal back the election, the second anniversary of the murder of Tamir Rice, and the murder of a San Antonio police officer.
