Sam Thurman, Wayne Wright, and Jynel Gaulden 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, Wayne and Jynel 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 Guest for tonight's show is Laura Caldwell, a Former Civil Trial Attorney and Author of "Life After Innocence" written about Jovan Mosely, who was wrongly convicted for a crime he didn't commit.

In 2013, Florida ranked third in the nation in number of calls received by the NHTRC.

So with that in mind, how do we approach the thousands of illegals streaming across the southern border, the millions of dollars handed out to people that have no business getting it. Where do we draw the line between those that produce and can enjoy the fruits of their labor and those that take more and more. Have we come close to the fault line defined by our abilities and our needs?

Latresa Powell of the Texas Bankers Insurance Agency answers the question of the week, "Is there a specific protocol for reporting potential financial bonds or D&O claims?"

I'm going to intersperse my sharing of topics, such as Bergdahl, AIDS, Gaza, Illegal Immigration, etc., with lots of good music and, God willing, a few voice messages from listeners as well.
