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.

Strength is contagious. Let's unite together.
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 Guests for tonight's show are Laura Magnani of American Friends Service Committe and Professor, currently serving Provost Todd Clear at Rutgers University in Newark, NJ. They will be sharing their thoughts on ending mass incarceration 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.

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.
As more and more of the incarcerated become senior citizens in prison, the costs to house them rise as well, by approximately three times the expense of younger prisoners. Older prisoners are quickly becoming vulnerable and neglected, often faced with increased violence of fellow inmates, but there aren’t enough services addressing this unique situation, as well as the quandary of the ethical treatment of a fellow human being vs accountability for their crime.
The other side of the dilemma is when elderly inmates are released there are often few resources available, families have dispersed, and they are faced with more uncertainty about their welfare than when they were in prison.
Shattered Lives Radio listeners will hear both sides of the issue with guest Tina Maschi and Shattered Lives host and homicide survivor, Donna R. Gore.

THEME: A Candid Discussion about Religion behind Prison Walls: How does it Work and why does it Matter
Bruce Smith - Retired Car Salesman, Founder of the Christian Car Buying Ministry and a 15-year Member of a Volunteer Outreach Team.
THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
According to the Prison Fellowship Ministries, which describes itself as a family of Christian ministries dedicated to bringing peace to a broken world through works of grace, acts of justice, and words of truth…here are the numbers:
The United States has less than 5% of the world population, but almost 25% of the world’s prisoners;
Today, approximately 2.3 million inmates are behind bars;
95% of all prisoners are eventually release;
2 out of 3 will reoffend.
Prison Ministry is a larger concept, including the support of the spiritual and religious needs of prison guards and staff, whose work in an often demanding and brutal environment often creates a special need for pastoral care, similar to the care that is extended to the military, police officers and fire fighters. What is religion behind prison walls all about…how does it work…and why does it matter?
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.

If we take a close examination at our youth and the troubles they find themselves in on the outside...disturbances in the schools, neighborhoods, and society...most likely we can trace the root cause of it in the homes they dwell in. Whether we would like to admit or not, rather than home being a place of love and peace for many of our youth it is a place of prison and war. It is time to truly and courageously deal with this harsh reality that takes place. Join us for another epsiode of Open Treasures as we sit down at the round table discussion concerning "When home is prison".
