    Detaining & Jailing: The Corporate Way on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    As I reported on earlier this week for The Fifth Column News twice in the past fifteen days, two separate class action lawsuits, one in U.S. District Court, one in Grady County Superior Court, were filed naming Red Hills Community Probation (RHCP) LLC, its CEO Margaret B. Crutchfield, and the cities of Cairo, Pelham and Bainbridge, GA, as defendants.  The Federal case, Edwards, et al, v Red Hills Community Probation LLC, et al, filed by the Southern Center for Human Rights, also names probation officers and members of various police departments. The state case, Green v Red Hills, et al, alleges the defendants violated a number of state statutes including various RICO laws as well. The two cases, though not connected in any way, arise out of nearly identical facts and the same pattern of conduct. Joining me this morning to discuss the merits of the case is Attorney for the Plaintiff in Green, K, Todd Butler. Attorney Butler will discuss the allegations and the law supporting his decision to advance a RICO legal argument to the court. Along with the improper and illegal actions of a corporation acting "under color of state law", for the sole purpose of profit.  I will be covering the latest important news subjects as well as our weekly education battle updates. Longtime Activist, Radio Host, Journalist and Coffee Party Director Bobby Rodrigo's show "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM EDT. Advocating engagement, pointing out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so. Booby attacks Money in Politics & political party blind allegiance hoping to stop corruption & tyranny. Plus join us Sunday Morning 8:30 AM EDT

    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real (a reentry show) 04/25/15

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier spent over 45 years in the Georgia prison system, from age 10 in 1968 until 2013 when he was in his mid-50's. He joined us on "Human Rights Demand" to encourage others to keep the faith and stay out of prison. The call-in number is (347)857-3293 at 9pmEST every Saturday night to speak with Johnny and his guests to make a human rights demand to stop mass incarceration and encourage released prisoners to think right, act right, and then expect their lives to go right.


    America has a recidivism rate of 67.5 percent, indicating that released prisoners need encouragement and practical help to successfully reenter society. Youths are still going to jail at astronomical rates, and prisoners are released every day. Johnny offers advice and information that will help redirect them.


    Johnny's assembly of guests usually include a former prison chaplain and representatives from churches in and around Atlanta who offer subsistence assistance as well as spiritual advice and the opportunity to unite in fellowship with a body of believers who will encourage continued success for those reentering the community after prison release. This show is based in Christianity, but all people are welcome.


    Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will. ~Frederick Douglass

    Mehlek Pfisha A voice crying out from the CONCRETE JUNGLE

    in Christianity

    Greetings to all God's people I thank each of you for your support of the ministry by allowing us to come into your homes and hearts. My guest tonight is a young man named Mehlek Pfisha A voice crying out from the CONCRETE JUNGLE. His goal is to encourage his lost brothers, whom may still be thrilled by street dreams, the "excitement" of street life and the false sense of honor and respect that plagues our youth through gang violence and gangsta rap.Mehlek Pfisha, born Nathaniel Henry, is a testimony of God merciful grace and rehabilitation.


    From stealing candy bars in corner stores to breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony, Mehlek's life was once full of rebellion, deviancy and mischief. Although born and raised by both his paternal parents, Mehlek found himself constantly in trouble with the law, in school and at home. His life was suddenly shaken after being arrested for burglary in Aug 2005. After pleading guilty to two felonies and a misdemeanor, his 25 years worth of prison charges were reduced to a mere 5 years of probation with time served.

    Clemacey For Those Who Has Been To Prison`

    in Christianity

    Come aboard a trip after the release from prison and the things to become a part of society once released. The first thing the state ask is each person returning outside from prison is to register with the ploice department or sheriff office. Many returning inmates never register some because they have forgotten to excited to be free again. Some because they are afraid another change may come up.


    The clemency function is an act of mercy that absolves an individual from all or any part of the punishment that the law imposes. This is a power to grant full or conditional pardons, or commute punishment. There are rules for these lengthy procedures, and these powers are vested in the Governor only with the agreement of two Cabinet members who are also statewide elected officials.

    Americas Most Unwanted and The People Who Find Them

    in Legal

    Our weekly look at the world of the Bail Bond industry. Commercial Bonds seem to be on the endanged species list in several states, prefering instead pre trial realease programs. On paper it sounds great, in practice it is far different. The tax payer foots the bill, the accused person foots the bill by having to pay monthly for his freedom, essentially he or she is on probation, but has yet to have been proved guilty of anything. When the person misses his court date, who looks for him? The answer is nobody. The world of Comercial Bonds is far different, the bondsman make a contract with the accused and the court. It is a one time fee, it does not matter if the bond lasts two weeks, two months, or two years. The tax payer is not involved, In the event that the accussed fails to appear in court the Bond holder has a huge vested interest in locating the person.

    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. Demand More Paroles 04/03/2015

    in Politics Progressive

    At 3pmEST on Fridays, we present Mary Diaz on the "Human Rights Demand" radio broadcast. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates to increase paroles and pardons. Please call (347)857-3293 to speak on air. You can also listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts Organization," where "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. She lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but fewer than 20 were released. Prison investors on the Pardons and Parole Board are a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates. Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. advocate the immediate release of prisoners who have served their minimum sentences and an increase in the number of prisoners who are granted compassionate releases. Prisoners who have been rehabilited and prisoners who are elderly and have served their minimum sentences as well as hospice inmates present no threat to society and deserve immediate release. Taxpayers should not be made to spend billions of dollars every year to excessively sentence prisoners when money is needed to improve the quality of life for free people.
