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? Join in tonight at 10:30 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.
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.

Strength is contagious. Let's unite together.
Join The Commissioner Ed Gray, producer Big C and friends at the Living Room Cigar Lounge 1902 S. Lamar St, Dallas, Tx 75215. Call (646) 668-8917 to listen in and be a part of the conversation from where ever you are.
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.
Join Mocha Soul and T. Mill for a riveting discussion about life and survival in today’s prisons; some of the unfairness that exists in the judicial system and possible solutions and resources for those who have touched down and those who are still on the inside. The golden rule does not stop there. Lets learn how to forgive, love, and remember: Everyone deserves a second chance. Call in number: 646-478-5265.

3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.
