SORT BY Relevancy
On January 22, at 3pmEST, we present Mary Diaz on the "Huaman Rights Demand" radio broadcast. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates for paroles and pardons. Tell us your opinion by calling (347)857-3293, or you can listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts," and "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. Mary lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but only released 18. Prison investors on Pardons and Parole Boards are a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates, I think.
Diaz said Alabama's Pardon and Parole Board has become a trendsetter for the rest of the country regarding releases. In Alabama during 2014, the Board considered 6,647 paroles, of which 2,237 were granted. The Board granted 657 pardons of 798 pardons heard and processed 522 voter rights restorations. That is real progress against mass incarceration. Some of the change may be credited to the ?Southern Poverty Law Center's lawsuit against the Alabama prison system.
"Presently, Maynard Cooper & Gale is fighting a Southern Poverty Law Center lawsuit that claims the health care provided to Alabama's inmates is inadequate and unconstitutional. Correctional health care firm Corizon is paying the firm to fight the lawsuit on behalf of the state due to a provision in its $224 million contract with the state. In total, the state has spent $1.86 million in taxpayer money to fight prison lawsuits in the past four years." reports AL(dot) com. That sum likely also includes a lawsuit by the ACLU? for segregating inmates with HIV. Righteous lawsuits litigated in just courts matter.
January is our month for new beginnings. We'll discuss pardons, paroles, and successful re-entry this month at Human Rights Demand and at National Network in Action (NNIA1). Please participate!
Listen as we go live again tonite and take President Obamas Speech apart for complete analyzation.

Tonight we will go on the air a bit later than normal friends. In deference to President Obama’s State of the Union Address, we will move the show. We hope you can stay up to join us; it is only fair to PRESBO that we don’t steal away from his audience. Of course what he has to say will be part of the discussion but this week has been just a smorgasbord of good things to choose from. We have Congress wanting answers about Predator Drone attacks killing “Americans” and collateral damage (where were these questions when a war was waged to go after fake WMD)? For the first time in almost a thousand years a Pope has called it quits. The real “song of the South”, Dr. Essie-Mae Washington-Williams (the illegitimate daughter of Strom Thurmond) has passed away. The end of an error……, sorry, couldn’t resist. All that AND a buffed up, pissed off cop killing cop is in a shootout with the police in California! We WILL hit these points and more, tonight at 10:30pm EST. Focusing on the major and sometimes overlooked topics affecting us in America today, the Nitelifer Circle of Sanity examines what is going on in Baltimore MD, Seattle WA, and all parts of the country in between. The “Media” is or isn't talking about it, but regardless, The Nitelifer Circle of Sanity is! We hope to enlighten and educate while delivering the seriousness of the issues with sarcasm and humor. Whether it is politics or social issues, The Nitelifer Circle of Sanity will be there. Call in to join in (347) 205-9763 or just click the link to listen in.
