Juvenile Corrections has become an industry through the privatization of juvenile correction facilities. This big money business has increased significantly over the past decade and now 40% of America's incarcerated youth are housed in private facilities. A decade ago, Florida Judge Ron Alvarez was so horrified by the descriptions of "a fetid, graffiti-covered jail called the Pahokee Youth Development Center that he compared it to a 'third world country that is controlled by some type of evil power' . The evil power in question at the time was named Correctional Services Incorporated. Correctional Services Incorporated began with its humble beginnings of is now run as Youth Services International. Judge Ron Alvarez was astounded that this corporation still does business with the State of Florida.

This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie takes on the troubling issue of mass incarceration in the United States and its impact with some extraordinary guests who can speak to the issue both from the outside in, and from the inside out. What’s behind this uniquely American practice of widespread incarceration? Is it really about guilt or innocence? Or is it a bigger question of social justice?
Joining us to sort this out is well-known actor and author of Letters to a Young Incarcerated Brother, Hill Harper, writer and convicted felon, David Harris, and Harvard criminal justice specialist, Ron Sullivan. Together we will discuss this issue of mass incarceration and its implications for the future of our nation.
It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.
The politics of punishment is today’s topic. A “tough on crime” ethos that entered American public policy during the Reagan years still reverberates through certain American communities.Billions of dollars more have been spent since to support the incarceration of millions of Americans.My guest today argues that the impact of these policies touch more than just the person who is convicted of a crime.Khalilah Brown-Dean is associate professor of political science at Quinnipiac University. Her next book is titled Once Convicted, Forever Doomed and examines the impact of the criminal justice system on African American and Latino communities.
What is the relationship between the growth of the prison system and the Emancipation Proclamation? Is there a defining difference between plantation life and the convict leasing system? What is the effect of marijuana on mass incarceration? Why is the plight of violence in Chicago causing Black Men a better chance of going to prison than to college?
Guests: Yusef Shakur, Detroit, MI & Nyle Fort, Newark, NJ
Moderators: Cara Live, Stephen Reese and TaQuon Ethridge
Incarceration of an individual has negative residual effects on wives, children and relatives .
That negative impact is compounded multiple times when the incarcerated parent or spouse’s innocence screams louder than the halls of justice's assertion of guilt.
Such is the case of the IRP6.
Kendrick Barnes, Gary L. Walker, Demetrius K. Harper, David A. Zirpolo, Clinton A. Stewart and David A. Banks are IT professionals and executives that, built the software company, IRP Solutions that was committed to developing a software application called CILC, to assist law enforcement in case investigation.
Somewhere, something went horribly wrong with what should have been a rewarding business relationship between IRP and the authorities. and instead of lucrative software contracts the IRP Executives wound up receiving prison sentences of 7 to 11 years for mail and wire fraud. Sentences for a crime they, their attorneys, activists, and evidence vehemently denounce as ever having occurred.
While the executives, their attorneys, and activists fight for the IRP executive's release, there are the wives, the children, that are faced with holding together lives unraveled by the incarcerations
On this episode of Talk To The Nation, meet Yolanda Walker, Esther Banks, Teshia Barnes, and Tasha Harper, Four wives to four of the six incarcerated IRP6.
Hear from them how the impact of an incarcerated spouse impacts the spouse, and children'and how they are holding together shattered shards of family units that changed literally, overnight. We are also elated to have Ethel Lopez the Vice President of A Just Cause join Geo and the wives on this episode. Ms.Lopez and her organization, A Just Cause are relentless, tenacious, and passionate activists devoted to correcting miscarriages and abortions of justice.
Tonight we are locking this conversation down and throwing away the ideals that it's a badge of honor to head to prison. Why is it that our youth and so often our fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers think it's cool to have a prison record? Tonight we speak with Mr. J. Jondhi Harrell, Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Returning Citizens (www.tcrcphilly.org). Mr. Harrell is a National Dialogue speaker and has claimed a dynamic voice in this plight of Mass Inceration. Through Mr. Harrell's efforts he is providing formerly incarcerated individuals with a life line as respected returning citizens. You don't want to miss this episode!
