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.
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.

Month Of Resistance
The October Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation must be like a giant STOP sign stuck right in the face of American society, day after day, so that it can't be covered up, whited out, ignored, neutralized or suppressed.

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 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.

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.
This is the show whose mission is to shine a light on the pathways of your life...
Tonight we will have a live discussion on the subject of "BIBLICAL INCARCERATION vs SPIRITUAL FREEDOM"
*Is the Bible a key to freedom or simply a thinly veiled psychological mechanism of spiritual limitation?
*Can you believe in God without believing in the Bible?
*What is true spiritual freedom and how do we get to it?
Sponsored by Mark Pittman--Respect for others' space, belongings, safety and right to live is a God-given right that should indeed come with a hefty price to those who violate it. The prison system is a necessary one to house the hard core offenders who commit vicious acts against these rights. The ideology behind it is that those who serve their sentences will learn from their mistakes and be "rehabilitated" back into a good citizen ready to live among the "civilized". With all we know, have heard and have witnessed about both crimes today and the prison system, do those offenders who are not facing life sentences truly return to society better or worse? Join in tonight at 10:30 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.
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 Retired, Lower Court Judge, Donna Hamm. She is the founder and Executive Director of Middle Ground Prison Reform, an all-volunteer non-profit organization, officially formed in 1983 in Tempe, Arizona.
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.
