Jonesboro Arkansas police officials are still investigating the in custody death of Chavis Carter. Despite the unconcluded investigation, published reports indicate both officers who had custody and control of Carter at the time of his death were reinstated. Additionally, published reports say the autopsy findings conclude the death was a suicide. The Jonesboro Arkansas police department has released some arguably inconsequential police dash cam video. However, the Jonesboro Police Department has not released any video that was taken when the fatal shot occurred.
On Thursday September 6, 2012 at 6:00 PM eastern time, we will have a full discussion of this death in custody case along with autopsy reports and reenactments.
Harvard-educated-attorney-turned-TV-writer Robb Chavis, whose new show, Us Versus Them, launches later this year on YouTube’s Original Content Channel, shares the secret of his stable, long-term marriage. “The biggest thing we did early on was to find a way to communicate, to develop common language. Having enough conversation where your words mean the same thing to you and your spouse, where you really understand tone and intent, that’s been so key to our relationship,” he tells The Real Men Project host Detavio Samuels. “We almost don’t have arguments anymore because the second we see ourselves shifting to that place, we have a language for identifying what that is, and calming down before it gets out of control.”
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Ethel Lopez of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff and Ethel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
Our Special Guests for tonight's show are Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Civil Rights Leader of the Wilmington Ten/Co-Founder of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN) , P.S. Ruckman, Pardon Expert and Wayne Moore, who was also part of the Wilmington Ten wrongly convicted for crimes, they didn't commit.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
