SORT BY Relevancy
Tonight we are hosting a potentially volatile show, asking: Does the punishment fit the crime?
In human terms, a murder means life in prison, so why is it so very different in the case of animal cruelty? Is it possible to tighten up the laws regarding sentencing and punishment for people who commit these terrible acts against our furry (and feathery) friends?

Paid your debt to society? Think again and keep paying.
Our literary and cinematic clichés include felons reinventing themselves after prison. Our society actively discourages reintegration. We are more like Valjean/Javert or Hester Prynne. You will wear your mistake and pay for it so long as you live.
Most obvious are CORI-style criminal-records files that give employers an excuse to hire someone other than an ex-convict. That keeps the former felon struggling and poor.
Even among rich celebrities, there can be pushback. Lately Mak Wahlberg has asked for a pardon from an old conviction for a racist assault (one of several in his teens and early 20s). Seems as a convicted felon, he has problems getting liquor licenses for his burger restaurants. Consider the harm and hopelessness if you aren't a wealthy, famous music and movie star.
At a base level though, why do the feds encourage states to bar former felons from the number one civic duty of voting? Only two New England states let incarcerated criminals vote absentee. Quite a few permanently ban participation in elections.
There is some logic to preventing ex-convicts from getting gun permits...but only if they had committed vioent offenses. But honestly, why separate the paid-their-debt crowd from the rights of citizenship?
Since the suspension of professional football player Adrian Peterson stemming from charges that he abused his four year old son by whipping him with a tree switch, the debate has been ongoing as to the fairness of this decision. Proponents of corporal punishment say it is a cultural misunderstanding; being "disciplined" with a "switch" is a common southern practice, and most black families, it is argued, use this method of punishment all the time. Others call it child abuse. Asadah Kirkland, author of Beating Black kids, examines whether corporal punishment of any kind is emotionally healthy for children or does it only create violent adults?
African American Pundit is back on BlogTalkRadio. Ready to talk about the real issues impacting the African American community. Now the question is... "can you handle the truth." Join us tonight as we talk about crime, punishment, criminal justice and whether America is involved in its own ethnic cleansing policy towards Black America, particularly black men.
Tune-in to calendar announcements for current awareness-activism entitled, "Take it Out, John Kline!" (http://youtu.be/BoKK5HcygE8) for having the success of "Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act," HR 5005, federal "legislative protection" for American sons and daughters while they are on USA school property in the hands of US government-funded employees.
This event will last from December 1-December 19, 2014, one day for each of the 19 US states where taking a wooden board* to strike American school age sons and daughter remains "legal."

The revolution of the mind continues.
In the wake of the decision not to prosecute Wilson, Black people have been bombarded by whites and popular mainstream Black talking heads regarding our supposed "forgetfulness" about what they call "Black on Black" crime.
This concept is a fallacy, a myth and a way to distract the conversation from exposing the supremacy roots that permeate our legal system.
Or do they have a point? Let's debate it.
Won't be home? No problem. Text "WYMS" to 67000 and get the listen in number sent to your phone 5 minutes to showtime.
