Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Wayne Wright 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.
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.

Our nation’s prison population has more than quintupled,” she said. “And this is due largely to the war on drugs and the ‘get tough’ movement. The drug war has been waged almost exclusively in poor communities of color even though studies have consistently shown now for decades that contrary to popular belief, people of color are no more likely to use or sell illegal drugs than whites, but by waging this drug war almost exclusively in poor communities of color, we’ve now created a vast new racial under-caste.”
One hundred and fifty years after the Emancipation Proclamation, the progress made by African-Americans is undeniable–which is why statistics about incarceration in the black community can be so shocking. In 2011 there were more African-Americans in prison or “under the watch” of the justice system than were enslaved in the United .
Face the facts...There is no "Rule of Law" or "Equal Justice for All" in America in 2012. The U.S.A "government" is no longer “instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed” as stated in our “Declaration of Independence”. The fact is, the corruption of the “The Constitution of the U.S.A.“, “Rule of Law” and “Equal Justice for All” is a massive and terminal cancer throughout our country. Our country is on life support and has very little time left. Case no: 6:12-cv-01256-CEH-DAB – Congress has violated the Constitution by failing to pass a budget. The American people are liable for the public debt. National security and sovereignty are at risk due to the fraudulent financial transactions and reckless disregard for the American people.
THOSE FACTS DO NOT MATTER TO THE MAGISTRATE OR THE JUDGE!
Per Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell and the Magistrate:
1) The American people do NOT have “standing”. We are NOT harmed by the failure of Congress abide by the Constitution and do its job. We are not harmed by the financial crisis or by the risk to national security or sovereignty. 2) This U.S. Court is not “cognizable”. “This Court has no authority to review a political question.” In other words, this U.S. Court does not have to consider the U.S. Constitution and Congress has every right to violate the Constitution.

The 2006 Warning from the FBI about the infiltration of police departments by the Klan and other racist organizations. Does it explain the rash of murders of unarmed black men? It's a perfect cover and who but a racist could kill a 11 year old kid playing with a toy gun. Also the beat goes on with a twist with black Dane County DA Ismael Ozanne declining to prosecute white Madison, Wisconsin police officer Matt Kenny in the shooting death of unarmed Tony Robinson Jr. who was shot for nothing more than acting erratically. Wisconsin state law requires police shootings are investigated by outside agencies but what should we expect from the state which really isnt an outside agency. And all the other news on The Ron Kelly Show.
Join us on Saturday, May 23 at 10 a.m. Eastern time when our guest on Studio SPJ will be Brad Heath, a reporter with USA Today and the winner of the 2015 Al Nakkula award for police reporting.
Heath won the award for a series of stories in which he revealed how police and prosecutors nationwide had allowed nearly 200,000 fugitives to escape justice simply by crossing over state lines.
The series led authorities in at least four states to reconsider or reverse this policy.
The Nakkula award is named after the late Al Nakkula, a legendary cops and crime reporter for the Rocky Mountain News. The award is co-sponsored by The Denver Press Club and The University of Colorado's College of Media, Communication and Information.

It's a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things, but much fanfare greeted the recent "yes" vote in the Irish referendum on gay marriage. It was proclaimed an "historic watershed" and "marked a milestone in Ireland’s journey towards a more liberal, secular society". The vote was "almost like a social revolution that makes us a beacon of equality and liberty for the rest of the world" according to Irish health minister Leo Varadkar, who is gay. British tycoon Richard Branson was delighted to "see the people of Ireland voting to live in a country where everybody is treated equally."
Meanwhile, violent, sexual abusers of children are still protected by the Irish state. Irish schoolchildren are still taught lies about their own history, Irish politicians and bankers get away with massive theft of state resources that have impoverished thousands, while Irish police are ordered to beat Irish citizens who protest the privatization of Irish water on the orders of international financiers.
We'll also be discussing latest events around the world, mostly involving death, suffering and chaos.
