    OUTSIDE, INSIDE A POLICE STATE

    in Politics

    Program Summary: April 25, 2015


    @Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast." 


    In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.


    Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."


     Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
    In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking.  On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."

    A Kind Voice on Movies

    in Movies

    Melancholy is an honest attempt to illustrate the true experience of an individual dealing with a major depressive disorder. It does away with the stereotypes that often plague portrayals of depressed characters in TV and film.  


    The film focuses on one night in the life of Sara, a typical twenty-something going through a severe depressive episode while trying reach out for any kind of catalyst to pull herself free, searching for help through friends, faith, and medication. Through Sara's eyes we see the despair, hopelessness, and fear that can cripple the life of an individual fighting a major depressive disorder. Sara's boyfriend, Graham, provides the perspective of the outsider. He struggles to find some way to help the woman he loves but can't find a way to break Sara out of her cycle of lethargy and depression. The relationship between Sara and Graham demonstrates a common example of the misunderstanding and disconnect between any couple in which one person is suffering from depression. Melancholy explores this disconnect and provides an emotional insight into the struggles of both Sara and Graham.


    Our guest this episode will be Writer/Director Nathan Edwards to talk about this project.


    Check out the Kickstarter campaign for this film here.

    When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) postponed the vote to confirm Loretta Lynch as attorney general in order to break the filibuster of a human-trafficking bill, Senator Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) punished him by suggesting that the delay was motivated by racism. “Loretta Lynch, the first African-American woman nominated to be attorney general, is asked to sit in the back of the bus when it comes to the Senate calendar,” Durbin said on the Senate floor in March. McConnell didn’t flinch during the human trafficking fight, which Republicans ultimately won, but such accusations stung.
