Human Rights for Prisoners March, hosted by Mary Neal. 9pm Pacific Time. Call (818) 572-2947 to speak on air.
Fighting mass incarceration must also include reducing recidivism. Prisoners face challenges being released from prison, including (a) the loss of good time programs, (b) unresponsive pardons and parole boards, (c) mandatory sentencing laws. Some released prisoners face tremendous challenges getting acclimated back into society, including (1) poor employment prospects, (2) lack of family and community support, and (3) expenses related to their release, i.e., ankle bracelets, probation fees. Ex-convicts who served sentences for certain offenses may be denied voting rights, and many are ineligible for government programs offering subsistence assistance and educational benefits. America's recidivism rate is over 65 percent. Recidivism is even higher among released inmates who have acute mental illness and were released from prison without arrangements for their continued psychiatric treatment.
Human Rights for Prisoners March provides:
Advocacy for adequate defense, fair trials, drug courts, mental health courts, post-conviction DNA tests, safe and humane incarceration, and successful re-entry.
Advocacy against prisoner abuse, avoidable deaths caused by police and corrections officers, solitary confinement, children tried and sentenced as adults, criminalizing mental illness, inadequate health care, wrongful convictions, law of parties, three-strikes law, enforced prison labor, and capital punishment.
Guests include people who have experienced, or who have specialized knowledge about, prison conditions and overuse of force by police or correctional officers, or any subject related to crime and punishment, including improvements proposed or realized.
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 Guest for tonight's show is Lt. Colonel Allen B. West, former United States' Congressman of Florida's 22nd District. He will be sharing his personal thoughts and opinions surrounding the growing and alarming rate of mass incarceration of young black men 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.

Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real features our host, a man who was incarcerated in Georgia prisons for 46 years, 15 of them in solitary confinement - from 1968 to 2013. Call-in at (347) 857-3293 each Friday. Strozier was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends broke into an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy. He was incarcerated at age 10. His sentence was lengthened to 90 years after cutting a prison guard as a teenager in an adult facility. Strozier's warden told him he would die in prison, but he did not. Strozier changed. Strozier became a Christian in the 1980s, then graduated from high school, became a certified cook and brick mason, and got married while still behind bars. Prison officials and the State Board of Pardons and Paroles recognized the change in Strozier and eventually paroled him. Since prison release, Strozier works, counsels youths, and attends church regularly. Strozier has many interesting stories to tell that inspire youths to avoid incarceration and motivate released prisoners not to recidivate. America's recidivism rate is over 65 percent.

Confinement in a prison cell creates a whole set of memories that a person may want to forget. What is it like to return home after a long period of being controlled and restricted? What psychological damage to ones self esteem needs to be repaired and how can that be done? What unseen emotional scars need healing, and can a person's family really understand what he or she went through? How does one offer support to a family member or friend returning from prison

WHILE ITS 12.8% FOR BLACK PEOPLE FOR NON VIOLENT OFFENSES? SOMETHINGS NOT ADDING UP WHY IS THE BLACK INCARCERATION RATE SO HIGH N MILWAUKEE FOR PETTY OFFENSES? YET THEY SAY RACISM IS NOT A ISSUE.
Throughout mankind there has been a history of confrontaion, manipulation, segregation, and institutionalization among nations. There is even doucumented proof and evedince of one nation "legally" overtaking, torturing and enslaving another nation. Not to mention the current killings and the thriving enterprise of modern day incarceration. However, if we all close our eyes, then we all look exactly the same. I guess its's safe to say something like "TWINS". So is it about the color of our skin, or is it deeper?
ROMANS 9:13-16Amplified Bible (AMP)
"13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated (held in [a]relative disregard in comparison with My feeling for Jacob).
14 What shall we conclude then? Is there injustice upon God’s part? Certainly not!
15 For He says to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy and I will have compassion (pity) on whom I will have compassion.
16 So then [God’s gift] is not a question of human will and human effort, but of God’s mercy. [It depends not on one’s own willingness nor on his strenuous exertion as in running a race, but on God’s having mercy on him.]"
