Tune in Tuesday April 15, at 8 PM CDT to listen to an in-depth discussion about the death penalty with death row exonerees Sabrina Porter and Derrick Jamison.
Sabrina Butler Porter was a Mississippi teenager who was convicted of murder and child abuse in the death of her nine-month-old son, Walter. She was sentenced to death in 1990. She was later exonerated of all wrongdoing and was released in 1995 after spending more than five years in prison and 33 months on death row. She is the only woman in the United States exonerated from death row.
Derrick Jamison was an innocent man who spent nearly 20 years on Ohio’s death row for a murder and robbery he did not commit. An eyewitness to the killing identified two men and neither of them was Derrick Jamison. This information was withheld from the defense, and his co-defendant was promised a reduced sentence in exchange for implicating Derrick. Misconduct and false testimony landed Derrick on death Row in 1985. Derrick spent 20 years on death row before his case was corrected in 2005.
Sabrina and Derrick are 2 of 144 people that have been exonerated from death row in the United States. According to Witness to Innocence, for every nine prisoners executed since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, one innocent person was condemned to die and later exonerated. These statistics are completely unacceptable and make a strong argument for abolishing the death penalty.
Retired college teacher and playwright Swithin Fry returns to the show to share an update regarding the poignant story of his penpal correspondence with Tim, a convict on Ohio's Death Row. From his vantage point in the United Kingdom, Swithin became aware of the difficulties Tim has faced seeking a retrial, leading to Swithin visiting Tim in prison and launching "Tim's Hope Campaign".
Swithin has been corresponding with Tim since 2011. In Swithin's words: "But the more I read, the more I became convinced that Timothy Coleman is innocent. He was no saint at the time, but I do believe he did not commit the murder for which he is now facing execution." Tim has applied to The Exoneration Project to ask that details of his case be reviewed.
Swithin has created a one-man play about his journey with Tim which he has performed to wonderful reviews in the U.K.

According to the latest statistics, there are over 3,000 people on death row in the United States. Can you imagine what it is like sitting on death row? Waking up every day in a cell knowing that each minute that passes puts you closer to the time when your life will be terminated by a lethal injection or an electric shock because of a crime that you committed? Can you imagine living every day with a countdown ticking in your mind?
You might say to yourself, 'I'm glad I'm not on death row. I don't want to do anything that would cause me to end up there.' But did you know that, in a way, you are indeed already sitting on death row?
Yes, the day of your death has already been decided. The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27, "It is appointed unto men once to die." Whether you want to accept it or not, your life -- and the life of every person alive -- is slowly winding down to a point of termination. You are effectively under a death sentence.
The reason we are placed under this death sentence is the same reason why men and women are placed on death row in the United States -- SIN -- evil, the bad things that we do. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, "the wages of sin is death." God's Word states that death is the consequence of our lying, stealing, adultery, murder, rebelliousness, pride and a multitude of other transgressions.
For an inmate on death row, death may seem like the end. The only way a criminal can avoid his death sentence is if he is pardoned by the state's governor or by the President of the United States.
Death does not have to be the end for you. You can be pardoned of your sins as well. Romans 3:23 goes on to say, "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." You can receive a pardon for your sins and the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Tune in on Tuesday August 26, at 8 PM CDT (What is Central Daylight Time?)
This week we will be discussing the Jeffrey Havard case with attorney Jen Fitzgerald and advocate Lori Howard. We will also have a special guest to be announced during the show.
Jeff Havard currently sits wrongfully convicted on death row in Mississippi for the sexual assault and murder of his girlfriend’s six-month-old daughter, Chloe Britt. The truth is the infant slipped from Jeff's arms while lifting her from the tub, causing her head to hit the toilet. New expert evidence supports Jeff's claims. Chloe’s death was a tragic accident, not a murder.
Jeff’s defense team recently filed a rebuttal citing a Brady violation. A new affidavit from the prosecution's only expert witness Dr. Steven Hayne strongly supports the defense argument that a Brady violation occurred. Hayne specifically told prosecutors on more than one occasion prior to trial that he could not support a finding a sexual abuse. Unbelievably, the State chose to ignore Hayne's findings and prosecute Jeff for murder during the course of a sexual assault.
Prosecutors stood before the Court and told the jury that Dr. Hayne had "confirmed the nurses and doctors worst fear, that this child had been sexually abused." They knew that Dr. Hayne had done no such thing; in fact, he had done just the opposite.
Jeffrey Havard is on death row because the prosecution lied to the jury.
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 Professor Kimberly Cook, Professor Saundra Westervelt and Wrongly Convicted/Exonerated, Sabrina Butler. They will be sharing what life was like being innocent on death row and how exonerees are left struggling after being exonerated from death row.
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.

1.) We will discuss Texas death row, two cases, and the conditions there. Although the goal of every justice system is to provide fair and impartial judgements (ok, almost every justice system), more often than one would like to admit human nature runs its course. Either because of concealed evidence, people being framed, or corrupt law enforcement there are people being wrongly accused every daythat should serve as a lesson to all of us.
2.) We will also adress the Ferguson issue and what the decision (still waiting) the grand jury makes on Darren Wilson the officer who shot and killed Micheal Brown..
Ferguson is already a powder keg and if the decidion is not to charge Wilson then what is next, a state of emergency has already been declared.
Ferguson grand jury decision unlikely this weekend, sources say
Tonight we will discuss the Rodney Reed case. Rodney is set to be executed January 14, 2015. He is innocent and languishes on Texas death row. .
