SORT BY Relevancy
A true crime thriller of prison life not only tells his story but also speaks on the issues behind the walls of the California prison system. Glenn Langohr ran away from a broken home with a death wish and entered the drug war with abandon. Business with the Mexican Mafia and Hell's Angels became a way of life until the Criminal Justice system interrupted him with Organized Crime charges. In prison he was involved in riots and spent years in the hole. From solitary confinement he started writing and hasn't stopped since. Now, he is an usher at his church and loves to reach out to other prisoners to help them turn their lives around. He speaks as a guest Lecturer at Criminal Justice colleges and writes articles for newspapers. "I want to show the world and the students and leaders of tomorrow, that we are only building bigger criminals by locking up low level offenders, where in prison, an addiction is bred into an affliction much harder to escape."
Guests: Glenn Langohr; Wilford Smith
3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.
In this episode of Prison Wives United, I will introduce myself and explain why I chose to start this. I will discuss what I've been through, and future plans for this show. I plan to do this weekly, and each week I will feature a specific discussion in hopes of getting you all to participate. I will have a friend of mine who will close us in prayer. The show will be nothing without yall, so I hope you plan to listen and join in on the conversation. Check me out on Instagram @prisonwivesunited for daily inspiration, and uplifting posts. <3

Human rights organizations, as well as political and social ones, are condemning what they are calling a new form of inhumane exploitation in the United States, where they say a prison population of up to 2 million – mostly Black and Hispanic – are working for various industries for a pittance. For the tycoons who have invested in the prison industry, it has been like finding a pot of gold. They don’t have to worry about strikes or paying unemployment insurance, vacations or comp time. All of their workers are full-time, and never arrive late or are absent because of family problems; moreover, if they don’t like the pay of 25 cents an hour and refuse to work, they are locked up in isolation cells.
There are approximately 2 million inmates in state, federal and private prisons throughout the country. According to California Prison Focus, “no other society in human history has imprisoned so many of its own citizens.” The figures show that the United States has locked up more people than any other country: a half million more than China, which has a population five times greater than the U.S. Statistics reveal that the United States holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. From less than 300,000 inmates in 1972, the jail population grew to 2 million by the year 2000. In 1990 it was one million. Ten years ago there were only five private prisons in the country, with a population of 2,000 inmates; now, there are 100, with 62,000 inmates. It is expected that by the coming decade, the number will hit 360,000, according to reports.

My guest will be talking about prisoner re-entry and other prison issues. He admits his guilt as a bank robber. He spent 35 years in prison, mostly in supermax.
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.
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. She has been touched very personally by police brutality and it has sprung her into action to fight back. 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!
