    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real 05/02/2015

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier was a Georgia prisoner for 46 years (from 1968 to 2013) and served about 15 of those years 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. His sentence was lengthened to 90 years after assaulting a prison guard. Strozier's warden told him he would never exit prison alive because he often escaped and was involved in gang activity, but Strozier changed. He became a Christian in the 1980s. Strozier became active in church, married, and gained his high school diploma while still incarcerated. He also became a certified cook and brick mason. Since prison release, Strozier works, counsels youths, and faithfully attends church. Strozier assembled a group of churches and individuals to give other released inmates subsistence assistance, encouragement, and spiritual brotherhood.

    Strozier will share information about reentry opportunities, the importance of avoiding behavior that leads to incarceration, and he plans interviews with persons who can share valuable information that will improve lives of former inmates and at-risk youths. Phone Strozier at 678.516.4993.

    "AIMI vs. USA" re Circumventing Successful Reentry: Goolsby 04/18/15

    in Politics Progressive

    An "AIMI vs. USA" claimant, Ms. Goolsby, will report at 9pmEST Saturday, April 18, Listen to the live broadcast via phone to make comments at (818)572.2947. She says her mentally ill son was recently re-arrested after being out of prison on parole for two years and denied his social security and Medicaid because Georgia's prison system refused to furnish the Social Security Admn. with documentation proving that he was a psychiatric inmate who was treated for mental illness throughout his incarceration. He lived homeless for most of the time he was out of prison. He passed 13 drug tests, but finally got so frustrated with being broke and hungry that he failed one and tested positive for #marijuana . Therefore, his parole was revoked. Before prison, he had received disability income since he was a small child. His mother reports that due to the Georgia #prison system's noncooperation with the Social Security Admin., he could not make it and rejoined the 1.25 million mentally ill prisoners in the USA. Reasons like this cause America to have a 67.5 percent #recidivism  rate. A disability #lawyer was working with the family to get the documentation from Georgia and resume the disabled young man's social security, and he had a job for a short while, but ...

    The tape will be available for listening any time after the live show on Blogralkradio. Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Whether or not you have relatives who suffer persecution for having mental illness, you are taxpayers who pay prison investors to warehouse America's mentally ill people.

    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.
