HUMAN RIGHTS DEMAND welcomes James Cosner on Saturdays at 3pm ET for as long as he is able. Call--in at (347)857-3293.

Cosner, a human rights advocate and college professor, will begin a fast (hunger strike) on May 13, 2014, to raise awareness about the following crimes against humanity: the unjust and ongoing incarceration of political prisoners, the epidemic of police brutality and terrorism, and the escalating and deplorable treatment of immigrants throughout the United States. Cosner asserts:

I vow to the Creator, my Ancestors, and the people that I will fast until death, unless the following demands are met by the US Government:
1st: Free Leonard Peltier, Move 9/8, Mumia Abu Jamal, Ramsey Muniz, and Rocky Boice
2nd: Fire immediately and file first degree murder charges against certain police officers as listed at the Campaign4Justice website http://www.campaign4justice.com
3rd: Stop deportations and detainment of immigrants

Thousands of innocent people are released from incarceration every year. Most of them are released because they served their sentences. Between 5k and 10k people are wrongfully convicted each year. The Univ. of Mich. Law School Innocence Clinic says most wrongful convictions are caused by:

Eyewitness Misidentification 
Junk Science 
False Confessions 
Government Misconduct 
Bad Lawyering

The U.S. Supreme Court has NOT determined that actually innocent people have a right to have their post-conviction evidence considered by courts. We will consider it on this show and make a human rights demand: RELEASE THE INNOCENT. PROSECUTE THE GUILTY. HUMAN RIGHTS FOR ALL.
