    Maya Schenwar: Locked Down, Locked Out: Why Prisons Don't Work

    in Politics Progressive

    Join Maya Schenwar on Human Rights Demand Blogtalkradio channel, Monday, Feb. 23. Call-in at (347)857-3293. She will discuss her book, "Locked Down, Locked Out - Why Prisons Don't Work and How We Can Do Better." What did Angela Davis and Michelle Alexander say about this book, which was written by the Sr. Editor of Truthout? Their reviews are below:

    “Maya Schenwar's stories about prisoners, their families (including her own), and the thoroughly broken punishment system are rescued from any pessimism such narratives might inspire by the author's brilliant juxtaposition of abolitionist imaginaries and radical political practices.”
    —Angela Y. Davis, author of "Are Prisons Obsolete?"

    “This book has the power to transform hearts and minds, opening us to new ways of imagining what justice can mean for individuals, families, communities, and our nation as a whole. Maya Schenwar’s personal, openhearted sharing of her own family’s story, together with many other stories and real-world experiments with transformative justice, makes this book compelling, highly persuasive, and difficult to put down. I turned the last page feeling nothing less than inspired.”
    —Michelle Alexander, author of "The New Jim Crow"?

    Through the stories of prisoners and their families, including her own family’s experiences, Maya Schenwar shows how the institution that locks up 2.3 million Americans and decimates poor communities of color is shredding the ties that, if nurtured, could foster real collective safety. Schenwar profiles community-based initiatives that successfully deal with problems—both individual harm and larger social wrongs—through connection rather than isolation, moving toward a safer, freer future for all of us.

    European Women Coming To United States in Record Numbers Visiting Prisons

    in Legal

    Correction: The address read on show is from a website maintained for Gerald Marshall. Not certain who maintains that site. 


    Write Gerald Marshall at this address.


    Gerald Marshall #999489


    Polunsky Unit


    3872 FM 350 South


    Livingston, Texas 77351


    An increase in European women visiting death row inmates has been brought to the forefront. Additionally, there is an increase in these women visiting state and federal prisons. It is said that many of these women are marrying prisoners and placing life insurance on inmates. Especially those facing capital murder. 


    We will discuss this issue and ask that you inform others. Inmates need to know of this scam. Many get caught up because the European women bait them with "money on the books".  Who finances these women?  How do they obtain funds for flights to the United States, ground transportation, hotels, food and pictures while visiting. Your donations are needed to assist with costs for this show.

    A Just Cause Coast2Coast - Why Prisons in the United States Need Reform

    in US Government

    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 Alex Friedmann, Prison Legal News and Eli Lehrer, R Street Institute. Both will be sharing their thoughts and opinions on why prison reform is so needed in our United States' prisons.


    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.

    Congressman Danny Davis Considers Presenting New Policing for Police and Prisons

    in Women

     Our Blogtalk radio family has worked together to create two pieces of legislation, one concerning Police and the other concerning Prisons. Today Congressman Danny Davis of the 7th District will listen to these suggestions and guide us through the process of how these ideas can be presented to Congress made into laws. The proposed legislation is as follows:


    Prisons: 1) Remove the objective to keep these as profit making ventures. Change the objective to one of eventually closing them all, "going out of business." 2) Make the objective to restore to wholeness those who have committed offenses against others, not punishment or vengeance for their crime. 3) Release everyone who is not jailed for a violent offence. 4) Release everyone incarcerated for drug trafficking or using drugs in which no weapons or acts of violence were involved. 5) Allow those who are in jail because they cannot pay a bond to be immediately released, if jailed for a non-violent offense. 6) Provide psychological evaluations and counseling services for violent offenders serving time in prison. 7) Provide education for those incarcerated, if they do not have a high school diploma. 8) Provide vocational training for those who are inside, preparing them for when they will be released. 9) Allow those serving long time or life sentences to serve the community by talking to errant youth in a "scared straight" program. 10) Expunge all records after the person has served time and been released, and do not require any reference or admission of committing a felony on an job applications.

    Prisons, gangs, witchhunts and white supremacy

    in Current Events

    There is a trick that the California prison administration pulls on African Americans in prison. It is to charge them with gang activity if they refer to “George Jackson” or any of his writings or ideas or to the “Republic of New Afrika” or the politics of New Afrikans. Thousands of people, mostly Black and Brown, have been held in solitary confinement for years and even decades, because “gang activity” constitutes a “security threat to the prison,” according to the Administration.

    Torture Inc. America's Brutal Prisons

    in Politics

    Torture Inc. America's Brutal Prisons videos and story.
    The Prison Activism show is about prison conditions, abuse and corruption. We will look at the privatized prisons and prison services. Remember 80% of the prisoners will be out someday. They may be mad at the world and possibly you..
    A prisoner is always in danger from the other prisoners or the guards. On guard told me that most of those that go home at night should be inmates.
