At the end of 2009, 743 adults were incarcerated per 100,000 of the population. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at the end of 2011. Additionally, 4,814,200 adults were on probation or on parole at the end of 2011. Equally 6,977,700 adults were under correctional supervision (probation, parole, jail, or prison) at the end of 2011.
On this episode, we’re going to address the rising number of incarcerations, as well as the issues of housing these inmates. Being that prisons and incarceration is BIG BUSINESS, and has a revenue of more than $1.7 Billion annually, it's not surprising that there are plans to build more jails and prisons, as well as the reconstruction of current facilities to accommodate the projection of housing more inmates.
We are pleased to have a well versed panel that will address these issues:
Our sponsor and great friend, Vonya Quarls of Shades of Afrika, will address the construction and realignment plans. Fanya Baruti will be speaking on the alternatives to jail expansion, and Diana Zuniga will cover the California State Court order and budget.
Please join us for this enlightening topic on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 9pm PST/ 11pm CST/ 12 Midnight EST.
You’re welcome to phone in live on-air to (646)200-3148. Or listen online and join the chatroom conversation.

Curtis and Nancy Petrey came to visit. They have been in ministry for decades. Obviously, they have lots of awesome testimonies to share. Curtis pulled a picture of Jesus out of his bible and began to share with me how he obtained it. He got it in prison. Here is his testimony.
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Ethel Lopez 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 Ethel 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 Lt. Colonel Allen West, Former U.S. Congressman representing Florida's 22nd District and Wrongly Convicted/ Exonerated, Thomas Haynesworth, who spent 27 years in prison for a crime, he didn't commit.

On the list for world domination by the Global Elite Power Structure are the following objectives:
Foster and expand the Prison Industrial Complex.
Turn Public Schools into virtual prisons feeding the Prison Industrial Complex and Military.
Turn the U.S. into a Global Police Force.
Gulags, Drones, Endless Wars.
Destruction of the Middle Class, especially in the U.S.
Control of the World's Resources -- oil, drugs (legal and illegal), water, minerals, lumber, etc.
Control of the Media and all Forms of Information.
Control of Capital.
Definition: The wealth, whether in money or property, owned or employed in business by an individual, firm, corporation, etc. any form of wealth employed or capable of being employed in the production of more wealth.
These objectives are being achieved by use of the Capitalist System, the foundations of which go back to the Puritans. These were English speaking Calvinists who had a unique belief system that anything that does not generate profit is worthless. This belief system planted the three seeds of destruction, Genocide, Racism, and Militarism, into the foundation of America from the very beginning. This is the thesis of my book, American Heart of Darkness which traced these three seeds of destruction from the first Colony in Jamestown to the JFK Assassination.
This week on Beyond the Veil, we will have a very special guest Collette Flanagan! She is the founder of the Dallas organization Mothers Against Police Brutality, or MAPB.

We will discuss her organization, as well as the growing problem with police brutality both in the Dallas area and nationally.
The United States contains 5% of the world population, and yet houses 25% of the worlds incarcerated. Because of this we will also be looking into the Prison Industrial Complex and the impacts it has had on society.
And lastly, we will also present to you the Leak of the Week, courtesy of WikiLeaks!

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.
