Sponsored by Mark Pittman--Respect for others' space, belongings, safety and right to live is a God-given right that should indeed come with a hefty price to those who violate it. The prison system is a necessary one to house the hard core offenders who commit vicious acts against these rights. The ideology behind it is that those who serve their sentences will learn from their mistakes and be "rehabilitated" back into a good citizen ready to live among the "civilized". With all we know, have heard and have witnessed about both crimes today and the prison system, do those offenders who are not facing life sentences truly return to society better or worse?

2nd life after jail or encarcaration guest alphonso bailey
Down But Not Out is an inspirational documentary about Alphonso Bailey, who had everything going his way. He was in college on a football scholarship and was making the dean's list. But his father's untimely death coupled with a sports injury prompted Alphonso to make bad and dangerous choices that landed him in prison. There he found the healing discipline of boxing. Prison offices, trainers, managers, and personal mentors saw not only his good work ethic in boxing, but also a good man in life. Boxing is the backdrop for the interviews, and viewers get inspiration for turning their lives around.
In one of his main themes, Alphonso urges viewers to persevere at the hard work of changing their lives, even when the end may not be in sight, to head directly into change rather than run from it.
He reminds viewers of the consequences of bad choices. But Alphonso tells viewers that whatever they're facing, "It's only a moment in time." Viewers discover that despite bad choices, they can change by using hope, perseverance, and courage to go after their dreams.
This new inspirational video can help many who need the light of hope. Audiences in a wide variety of circumstances can benefit, including at-risk youth, ex-offenders, victims of family violence, people in support groups, and others.
This video contains two versions of Down But Not Out. The first version is the full, uninterrupted documentary. The second version, designed for classroom and other group uses, contains pauses with on-screen cues for discussing points, such as:Think before you act.Understand the importance of choices and consequences.Learn from your mistakes.Overcome obstacles.Do the right thing.Take control of your life.Work hard to reach your dreams.

The United States is the world's leader in incarceration with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails -- a 500% increase over the past thirty years.
More than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic minorities. For Black males in their thirties, 1 in every 10 is in prison or jail on any given day. These trends have been intensified by the disproportionate impact of the "war on drugs," in which two-thirds of all persons in prison for drug offenses are people of color.
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 Guest for tonight's show is Retired, Lower Court Judge, Donna Hamm. She is the founder and Executive Director of Middle Ground Prison Reform, an all-volunteer non-profit organization, officially formed in 1983 in Tempe, Arizona.
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.
