SORT BY Relevancy
Program Summary: April 25, 2015
@Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast."
In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.
Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."
Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking. On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."

The boys are all back together and we have a sort of jammed back show on a rather slow news week. MSNBC's resident racist and tax-dodger owes the IRS 70K, yet she's going to White House Correspondence Dinner. Is the American Experiment dead? There was a shit-in at Cal Polyptych. More about Hillary Clinton, and whatever else we decide.?
We had all had a hell of Memorial Day weekend, especially those living near cities which saw an eruption in violence, particularly Baltimore, which has experienced record violence since protestors insisted police are all bad guys. We also talk about one of the leaders of the movement - DeRay Whatshisname . ?
Tuesday April 7, 2015 is Election Day in Ferguson, Missouri, Chicago, Illinois and a number of cities across the U.S. Police brutality is a major issue in communities where racism has run rampant throughout the criminal justice system and police have operated as enforcers in an ongoing practice of criminalizing African Americans, Latinos, and low income whites. When will it stop? Many citizens say it's time to change the people in City Hall. But the question is, what can elected officials really do to end police abuse of citizens? Fire the entire police force and start over with new hires? Develop a rigorous retraining program that involves racial sensitivity? Create a Citizen Review Board with the authority to fire police if found guilty of using unnecessary excessive force? Require that police who serve a community must live in the community that they police? Have body cameras on all officers, which must be on and active during all interactions with citizens? Theodore Daffin, a victim of police abuse and a subsequent cover up, shares his story and his hopes of one day receiving justice.

The Back Story is an online journal of fact (original reporting) and opinion. It is specifically intended to be an alternative to the local newspaper, where certain news items are under-reported (or not reported at all), where not all points of view make it into print, and where current economic conditions have rendered investigative reporting all but extinct.
The emphasis will be on the Stanislaus County area: political, economic, social, cultural that affect those of us who live here.
We are not suggesting that we are going to supplant the daily newspaper, but we ARE stating that there is a considerable gap between what happens in and around our communities and what is reported, and we propose to fill that gap.
There are individuals, groups and concepts that are considered untouchable, and we think that is very unhealthy and downright dangerous to the concept of representative democracy.
There’s a lot going on in our city that affects you – events and issues you need to know about. The Bee has failed us as a reliable news source. You have to look further than the Modesto Bee. Fortunately, you have a choice with news and comment by Mayor Sabatino.
You can get the REAL facts about important local issues on The Back Story.
Streaming to your computer @ http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebackstory – from 11:30 to noon daily. Again – that is The Back Story – daily from 11:30 to noon.
You will notice the difference.
Local call-in number (209) 846-1814.
Wisconsin’s shame: ‘I thought it was a home invasion. Is this America?’; Politicized prosecution run amok in Wisconsin to kneecap an embryonic Scott Walker presidency and summarily destroy any conservative who ever supported him; Students fear for their safety because conservatives invited a speaker to campus; For a sneak preview of our future, Western Christians, consider the Middle East; The Left's moral schizophrenia and why it always wins at election time; and why the GOP needs to run against the entire twenty-first century to date by nominating Scott Walker.
In light of all the attention that police brutality is getting in the media, Down South and Dirty wants to take on the issue of the Police State and what it truly means past just the shooting of unarmed black men. You have cities literally farming their populations for operational funding. We have questions and we think you do too! So this episode is going to get Down and Dirty in a way that only Down South and Dirty can!! Remember our mid week show Hump Day Primetime!
