    Beyond the Veil - Police Brutality and the Prison Industrial Complex

    in Politics

    This week on Beyond the Veil, we will have a very special guest Collette Flanagan!  She is the founder of the Dallas organization Mothers Against Police Brutality, or MAPB.  She has been touched very personally by police brutality and it has sprung her into action to fight back.  We will discuss her organization, as well as the growing problem with police brutality both in the Dallas area and nationally.


    The United States contains 5% of the world population, and yet houses 25% of the worlds incarcerated.  Because of this we will also be looking into the Prison Industrial Complex and the impacts it has had on society.


    And lastly, we will also present to you the Leak of the Week, courtesy of WikiLeaks!

    Prison Industrial Complex: Big Business for America

    in Radio

    Today the United States has approximately 1.8 million people behind bars: about 100,000 in federal custody, 1.1 million in state custody, and 600,000 in local jails. Prisons hold inmates convicted of federal or state crimes; jails hold people awaiting trial or serving short sentences. The United States now imprisons more people than any other country in the world—perhaps half a million more than Communist China. The American inmate population has grown so large that it is difficult to comprehend: imagine the combined populations of Atlanta, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Des Moines, and Miami behind bars. "We have embarked on a great social experiment," says Marc Mauer, the author of the upcoming book The Race to Incarcerate. "No other society in human history has ever imprisoned so many of its own citizens for the purpose of crime control." The prison boom in the United States is a recent phenomenon. Throughout the first three quarters of this century the nation's incarceration rate remained relatively stable, at about 110 prison inmates for every 100,000 people. In the mid-1970s the rate began to climb, doubling in the 1980s and then again in the 1990s. The rate is now 445 per 100,000; among adult men it is about 1,100 per 100,000. During the past two decades roughly a thousand new prisons and jails have been built in the United States. Nevertheless, America's prisons are more overcrowded now than when the building spree began, and the inmate population continues to increase by 50,000 to 80,000 people a year.

    Black Men and the Prison Industrial Complex

    in Self Help


    There are more black men in jail than in colleges. Statistics show that 50% of black men would've served time in prison or a juvenile detention center by the age of 30. The incarceration rates of black men are higher compared to their white male counterparts. Why the disproportionate rate of black men in prison? What about effective programs that help them re-enter society? My guest Reverend Henry Price, a once convicted felon turned social activist and pastor, joins me to discuss his take on the prison industrial complex, what lead him to activism, and why he feels like black men keep going to prison.

    MODERN DAY SLAVERY, THE PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

    in Spirituality

    The 13th amendment allegedly abolished slavery. But that created a new problem. The newly freed slaves were not citizens of any state or country, because they were just property, and property did not have citizenship. To solve the problem, the 14th amendment allegedly passed. This amendment created a new class of citizenship. This new class was legally called: 'United States citizen', (with a small "c"). NOT 'United States of America Citizen', but just 'United States citizen'. Notice that the U.S. citizen is spelled with a lower case 'c'. This is to show a lower class of citizenship. This class of citizen (U.S. citizen) is a privilege granted by the federal government, and not a sovereign inalienable right.
