This Sunday's show isn't one that has been underreported lately, but that's only because the case involves an extremely egregious injustice here in Missouri. This is the story of Kevin Strickland. Strickland had been incarcerated in Missouri over 40 years--for a crime he did not commit. Due to a recent change in Missouri law, a judge was able to vacate this conviction, since the prime witness realized they picked the wrong man out of a lineup. This witness contacted various officials, but no one would listen. Finally, on November 23rd a hearing was held in Kansas City, Judge James Welsh accepted the testimony, and vacated Strickland's conviction. Strickland was released a few hours later. Meanwhile, the state of Missouri will not have to pay any reparation for this egregious miscarriage of justice. Strickland has no money, no home, nothing. He is living with family right now. 

Meanwhile the Mo. AG Eric Schmitt has been fighting this release. 

One last thing, the Mo. AG is white and a Trump ally--and Strickland is black.

This IS about systemic racism and the inconvenient truth that this systemic racism has become accepted routine.

Come listen.
