Ms. Taylor, a children's advocate from Memphis, Tennessee, will be our special guest. Call in at (818)572.2947.  The Memphis Shelby County Jail continues to violate citizens' rights 12 years after the secret arrest and wrongful death of Larry Neal, this station director's mentally, physically disabled brother who was murdered there on August 1, 2003. Children incarcerated in the jail as adults suffered neglect and brutality. The U.S. Department of Justice investigated and found the jail at fault. It entered an Agreement with the jail. Yet Memphis officials refused to issue a resolution supporting the United Nations' Declaration of the Rights of a Child when Ms. Taylor made that simple request.
