The US should ask God forgiveness for trespasses of genocide, unprecedented mass incarceration, police brutality, and colonial enslavement. The United States of America has an enormous mass incarceration problem. More than 2-4-million prisoners are locked up in federal penitentiaries, state corrections facilities, and jailhouses. Incarceration in the US is nearly 3.5 times higher than that of Mexico. In fact, there are more people locked up in the US than in China. America has the largest prison population in the world and one out of every 100 Americans is locked up behind bars.
What is False imprisonment? It is the unlawful restraint of a person against her will by someone without legal authority or justification. Fact: Innocent people are wrongly accused & falsely incarcerated in this country sometimes for decades because of police & prosecutorial misconduct. What is a Wrongful Death? A wrongful death is a claim that exists when a person dies due to the legal fault of another person, police ect. Can Law Enforcement Officers be held liable for death they commit against unarmed victims?
What is Due Process? The government may not deprive citizens of “life, liberty, or property” without due process of law. This means the government has to follow rules and cannot deny the accused of: hearings, trials, medical treatment nor their right to freedom.
Co-Host: Vanessa QueenTahiyrah Sparks
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart 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 Lisa 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 Laura Magnani of American Friends Service Committe and Professor, currently serving Provost Todd Clear at Rutgers University in Newark, NJ. They will be sharing their thoughts on ending mass incarceration in the United States.
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.

Mass Incarceration is the topic of discussion in the American society. All across borders incarceration is a problem and a great burden on the American people and communities. The reading "Masked Racism" speaks to the profiling and social steering of certain groups; Blacks and Hispanics. It examines the new, but really old, tactics of government to control populations, groups and or cultures of people.
Our informative readings are path ways to necessary discussion, awakening of consciousness and ignite participation. Thursday, April 17, 2014 we will discuss and share your views, wisdom, knowledge, experiences and more exposing the real problem is it us or them?
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.

Today, more than one out of every 100 Americans is behind bars, and the US has the largest prison population in the world, both in terms of the actual number of inmates and as a percentage of the total population. The numbers are staggering: the US incarceration rate is nearly 3.5 times higher than that of Mexico, a country that has spent the last decade in the throes of an actual drug war, and between five and ten times higher than those seen in Western Europe. There are more people locked up in the US than in China. In fact, the US is home to nearly a quarter of the world's prisoners, despite accounting for just 5 percent of the overall global population.

The United States is the world's leader in incarceration with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails -- a 500% increase over the past thirty years.
More than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic minorities. For Black males in their thirties, 1 in every 10 is in prison or jail on any given day. These trends have been intensified by the disproportionate impact of the "war on drugs," in which two-thirds of all persons in prison for drug offenses are people of color.
