ATTENTION: All Dekalb County residents, District Attorney, Robert James will be featured on the show. We will interview him, and get his views on Mass Incarceration, his upcoming re-election process and how he plans to make Dekalb county a safer and prosperous county for his constituents. It's imperative that ALL DEKALB COUNTY residents call-in and voice their concerns about the man who makes the final decison on what happens to the criminals in their county. You have a voice, so please make it count. 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, 1 in every 3 is likely to be 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. Do you believe that Mass Incarceration is the answer for better communities? How do we keep so many Blacks out of prison/jail? Do we have enough Blacks within the judicial system, to help benefit Blacks? Tune in from 9pm-11pm est, to join the dialouge and voice your opinion.

Being an American is not enough anymore. When it comes to becoming old enough to get a job that pays, once upon a time, being an American was the only requirement. Today, being an American is not enough to expect to get a job. What is not being realized is that people are going to be counted in statistics somewhere, at all times. Why not follow the order as set forth when we began to organize the free enterprise system in America as we know it. Captialism. Once was, area business owners felt obligation to hire Americans, their neighbors, their customers. Today, area business owners, franchise owners, & CEOs of F500's only obligation is to their profits.
From CeCe McDonald’s imprisonment for defending herself in an assault, to Laverne Cox’s portrayal as Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black, to Jennicet Gutierrez’s White House protest of transgender detainee treatment in ICE custody. Today we have two guests joining us to discuss the current state of the American prison system, the concept of abolition and the reforms necessary to protect transgender and gender non-conforming prisoners.
Prison Stats: The United States has 5% of the world's population, but 25% of the world's prisoners. (2014 stat) In 2010, the U.S. spent $80 billion on incarceration. (2014 stat) In 2012, one in every 108 adults was in prison or jail and one in 28 American children has a parent behind bars. (2014 stat).
LGBT youth make up only 6 percent of the general population but represent 15 percent of people currently in juvenile detention. (http://www.advocate.com/commentary/2015/9/18/helping-queer-youth-affected-school-prison-pipeline) 40% of Transgender Prisoners Are Sexually Abused, which is 10 times the rate of prisoners in general. (https://transgenderequality.wordpress.com/2014/12/18/federal-survey-40-of-transgender-prisoners-are-sexually-abused-each-year/)
Between October 30 and November 2,2015, the United States will release 6,000 federal prisoners in accordance to new guidelines that went into effect November 2014 when an independent federal commission proposed shorter sentences for drug offenders. The result of the commission's decision that -just because someone was sentenced to a long prison term during the peak of the tough-on-crime era, he shouldn't automatically have to serve more time than he'd get if he were sentenced today. Of the 6000 to be released, only 4,000 are US citizens; about 2,000 of the prisoners scheduled for release are unauthorized immigrants, who will be detained and deported immediately after they're released from federal prison and legal immigrants
In January 2014, the Commission indicated it would reduce the drug sentencing guidelines and in March 2014, the Attorney General supported new guidelines being applied to on-going drug cases. As many as 46,000 prisoners are eligible to apply for shorter sentences under the change.
In 2011, Congress reduced the sentencing disparity between "crack" and powder cocaine and the Sentencing Commission decided to allow current prisoners sentenced for crack cocaine to apply for shorter sentences. The United States incarcerates more people than any other country in the world. Ten thousand people are released from prison every week, most of them from state prisoners. Typically, the federal government releases 55,000 prisoners a year. It will be interesting to see how the federal criminal justice system will help ex-inmates reenter society.
