Sponsored by Mark Pittman--Continuing our series on the effects of long term prison sentences and the inmates who return to society after serving them. Does society play a huge role in the failures of these former inmates? Join in tonight at 11 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.
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.
Glen writes both fiction and nonfiction from his forty-year career and experience as a trial lawyer and consultant in international business and banking.
His nonfiction work as the observer in The Prison Trilogy tells the tales in chronological order of how he came to be a lawyer for a Wall Street Journal heiress and her gay husband and how that representation landed him in federal prison. That is the first in The Trilogy. The second book tells the story of his cell mate, Colonel George Trofimoff, serving life for spying for the KGB, and the final book of The Trilogy describes the prisoners, Glen's experiences and takes a hard look at the American criminal justice system.
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.

Of course you know that poor people, especially people of color, face a far greater risk of being fined, arrested, and even incarcerated for minor offenses than other Americans. Less well-known known are the new and growing trends which increase the criminalization of being poor that affect or will affect hundreds of millions of Americans.
