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 Guests for tonight's show are Jonathan Rapping, Founder/President of Gideon's Promise, and Jacinta Hall, Assistant Public Defender for Law Office of the Shelby County Public Defender.
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.

Join us this evening as we expose the persecution and false charges levied against Cary Crittendon in California. Cary is currently held at Elmwood Correctional Facility charged with parole violations (non-specific). A May 4th hearing has been scheduled to allow the prosecutor time to fabricate other charges. The intent? To sentence Cary to a long period in prison for exposing the corruption of a sitting judge with a long history of corruption.
Later in the show: Doug Franks will join us to talk about the recent victim's symposium that took place in Florida where families that had been targeted had an actual opportunity to speak at length about the abuses they had endured at the hands of predatory guardians and the infamous BAR Association, along with the corruption of the probate courts facilitated by hand-picked "judges".
Should be an interesting show!

Justice Clarke Live @ 4th & Baker: On The Sound Board - Interview with Joe DaVerbal Minddancer and Brett Riplak
Short bio about Joe DaVerbal Minddancer:
I am Joe DaVerbal Minddancer. I've always had a way with words just never thought about writing them down. The arts were and still are my passion. So why now, why do I write poetry. I was a bit shy in my youth and very quiet, not one to express my thoughts. Being able to "Rap" (as we called it) was key. My natural shyness had me at a disadvantage. I would sit for hours browsing the world book encyclopedia searching for nothing, seieing everything. The birth of eclectic thinking. My speech was filled with one liners blessed with a quick wit and an eye for detail I used my verbal prowess to conquer love. Yet writing, never took the forefront. I found my way onlne in 2005, years after many before me and 5 years after that I wrote my first poem online.
Short bio about Brett Riplak:
Riplak is an emcee based out of Iowa. The meaning of the name is Rest In Peace Lynn Ann Kremer, in memory of his mother who passed away when he was 12. Lynn's life was taken by her best friend's 22, in cold blood. Riplak was very close to her. After she passed his friends left as well. Family was there but he still felt alone at this time. He began writing to deal with what was trapped in his head. The violent thoughts would come out on paper in attempts to stop himself from acting them out. He began singing/screaming in hardcore bands in high school. The bands never seemed to stay together.
The years went by and Riplak began meeting many people all over the U.S. Travelling to do shows almost every weekend. Making an impact on people with his personal rhymes. Music is the number one love of his life and it shows.

Even for someone born with the comedic gene, going through life’s up's and down's can be no joking matter. For Darren Lacroix, little did he know the night he decided to live out his comedic passion on stage performing at an open mic night; that not only would he have a disastrous performance, but that it would change his life forever. He attributes that fateful night as being the beginning of one of the greatest lessons he has learned, the importance of stage time. The ability to recognize how vital stage time is, it allowed Darren to transform into a World Champion of Public Speaking, which he won in 2001. The caveat in all of this is that Darren is still able to use his love of humor to impress upon inspiring messages to audiences all over the world. Please join us as Darren Lacroix offers D44 Talk Radio some radio time prior to the stage time he is scheduled to give at this year’s District 44 Spring Conference. Show Host: Dawn Kamara, ACG, ALB.

Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
About 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in a report from 2014. This represents a 30% increase from the 1 in 88 reports of children reported to have autism in 2012. White children are more likely than Black or Hispanic children to receive an autism diagnosis. And Black children and girls are more likely to have intellectual disability along with their autism. The most notable shift is the growing proportion of those who have average or above-average intelligence, rising from 30 percent in 2002 to nearly 50 percent in 2010.
Monday evening, the 50th episode of The GreenHouse FX Radio Show, we will increase our knowledge of autism... Supporting those who are deal with this diagnoses everyday... Celebrating their struggles and triumphs. There has been an increase in early diagnosis, this is a reflection of successful public awareness efforts... this Monday, join us to continue those efforts.
On Thursday, 23-April, I had the privilege of attending a NASA Social Media Event at the Newseum in Washington, DC and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope.
NASA Social is "a program to provide opportunities for NASA's social media followers to learn and share information about NASA's missions, people, and programs. NASA Social is the next evolution in the agency’s social media efforts. Formerly called NASA Tweetup, NASA Social program includes both special in-person events and social media credentials for individuals who share the news in a significant way. This program has brought thousands of people together for unique social media experiences of exploration and discovery."
Please join me and my guest host and fellow NASA Social Alum Kathie Hagen as we talk about our experiences at NASA Social Events, the awesomeness of Hubble and it's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, the future of space exploration and use of social media in generating public interest.

Tonight's special guest is Brittany Ecton from Olathe, Kansas, a 26 year old single mother who's a child abuse and adoption trauma survivor and activist. Still in early recovery, this will be the first time she tells her story in public. Sexually abused by her father, a belligerent drunk, she recalls being "conditioned" by him for years. A deeply troubled child her parents took her to many therapists, she says, ".. and every time I hinted at the abuse they would switch, and they forced medication on me for years." Her mother neglected her throughout her entire life and never showed her love or any form of kindness. "She had 3 other kids and it was obvious she loved them and not me." She explains, "I started acting out my abuse with my brother as a child, and the memories are so dark that I can't bare to even look at my brother anymore, without hating my entire body and mind for those memories. Once my hormones kicked in, I became ashamed of my body and life, I had no friends and no life, and I was tormented by kids for being different." A troubled teenager, she broke all the rules, before 18 had 7-8 suicide attempts. "I got pregnant at 19 and my mother forced me into giving my baby away due to no money, help or support, and I lived in a homeless shelter for 7 months." At 21 she married her friend, Zachary, a bad boy doing everything wrong who she'd knows since 15 years old. "He was in the military and promised to save me from my life," she shared. Returning from Afghanistan 80% disabled presented Brittany with new problems, and the additional challenge of giving birth to their son. In the middle of everything else she discovered she'd been adopted! Now married 4 years and seeing a therapist, Brittany's still struggling with doing what's best for herself and her young son.
