    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real, 6/20/15, reentry show

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier was incarcerated in Georgia prisons for 46 years (from 1968 to 2013), with roughly 15 of them served in solitary confinement. He was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends burglarized an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy. He was imprisoned at age 10. He was transferred to an adult facility, then his sentence was lengthened to 90 years after cutting a prison guard. Strozier's warden told him he would never exit prison alive because he escaped several times and was involved in gang activity, but Strozier changed. He became a Christian in the 1980s. Strozier got active in church and also gained his high school deploma while still incarcerated. He also became a certified cook and brick mason. Since prison release, Strozier works, counsels youths, completed reentry programs, and attends church twice or more times weekly. Strozier's last cellmate in Macon Prison was Atlanta child killer Wayne Williams.

    Strozier shares information about reentry opportunities, the importance of avoiding behavior that leads to incarceration, and he brought together other people and groups who share valuable information to improve lives of former inmates and at-risk youths.

    Karen Dolan: The Poor Get Prison

    in Lifestyle

    Of course you know that poor people, especially people of color, face a far greater risk of being fined, arrested, and even incarcerated for minor offenses than other Americans. Less well-known known are the new and growing trends which increase the criminalization of being poor that affect or will affect hundreds of millions of Americans.


    Karen Dolan exposes the facts about a national crisis in a provocative report, The Poor Get Prison. This report provides an understanding of the growing ways in which those in poverty are disproportionately targeted, marginalized, and prosecuted.


    Karen Dolan is a Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies and directs the Criminalization of Poverty Project. Karen also assists the Economic Hardship Reporting Project.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1113

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Kelly M. Scott from Midlothian, VA, a child abuse survivor with a long history of trauma who was raped at 14, molested at 15, had her memory blocked from other early childhood abuses. It was restored when she was 31, releaseing all kinds of truth in her family. Many many generations of abuse came out. Anxious to help others, she's starting a new Facebook survivor's group, Survivors Unite. Kelly grew up the youngest of 5 kids, but her closest sibling was 14 years older than she. Her police officer father eventually became Chief, so her mother did most of the child raising. Kelly was assaulted and reaped by her 18 year old boyfriend when she was 14 years old .. but she kept the story a secret. A year later she was repeatedly molested by an adult neighbor. Eventually the man was found out and received a 2 year probation. In her mid 20s she got pregnant by a man who she discovered was living a double life. He beat and assaulted her and she left him for the sake of the infant child. At 31 Kelly met and married her "Knight in Shining Armor" .. but was about to enter the most confusing and painful part of her life. She was seen by a Psychiatrist, medicated heavily and entered a mental institution where she eventually had powerful and provocative visions over a 4 night period. In the end she queried her family member and was able to learn of the many repressed / hidden facts of her earlier life. Among other things she learned her oldest brother (20 years her senior) had molested his siblings, and that her mother had been raped and molested by her grandfather when he got drunk. "It all started making sense and the clues were lining up for me," Kelly says, "it's been going on [in my family] for a long time."

    Talking In Circles: Pocono Review, MWR Crew Chief Change, Qualifying Timing

    in Sports

    On this episode of Talking in Circles we breakdown the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway. Martin Truex Jr won his 3rd career race and Furniture Row Racing are in the Chase. Big win for them and Truex. 


    We also talk about the infamous "Gordon and Gustafson spat," from Pocono and discuss whether or not that is something that should be taken seriously. 


    Michael Waltrip Racing announced a crew chief change this morning, flipping Brian Pattie and Billy Scott. Scott moves to the No. 15 car with Clint Bowyer and Pattie moves to the No. 55 Toyota with David Ragan. We discuss what these changes mean for the organization and whether or not the team made the right move. 


    Also the No. 48 team failed inspection twice during pre race inspection Sunday at Pocono. Should they recieve a stiffer penalty even though Knaus wasn't on probation? 


    Greg Biffle had a little mixup with NASCAR during qualifying. Biffle crossed the line on tv with about a second to go and NASCAR claimed that wasn't the case because according to their timing Biffle was too late. He ended up 22nd which would have transfered him into the round but NASCAR said he was too late. How can something like that happen in a major professional sport? Also Denny Hamlin's spin in the last round of qualifying kept teams off the board and Hamlin ended up 7th. Is that fair and could this create an issue later on down the road? 


    Also Kyle Busch is back behind the wheel of an Xfinity Series car this weekend as he drives the No. 54 Toyota for the 1st time since his crash at Daytona in February. How will he do? Should he be here? We'll talk about that as well. 


    Michigan Preview- Cup, XFINITY this week at Michigan, trucks are at Gateway. We'll preview each race for this weekend. 


    Plus we take your phone calls.

    A MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY

    in Christianity

    The fulfilling of the signs of the times gives evidence that the day of the Lord is near at hand.... The crisis is stealing gradually upon us. The sun shines in the heavens, passing over its usual round, and the heavens still declare the glory of God. Men are still eating and drinking, planting and building, marrying and giving in marriage. Merchants are still buying and selling.... Pleasure lovers are still crowding to theaters, horse races, gambling hells. The highest excitement prevails, yet probation’s hour is fast closing, and every case is about to be eternally decided. Satan sees that his time is short. He has set all his agents to work, that men may be deceived, deluded, occupied, and entranced until the day of probation shall be ended and the door of mercy be forever shut.... – {TMK 354.2}
