Brushed Off By THE U.S. Department Of Justice Lately?

That was the question posed by our Crimes of the Century co-hosts and their guests as part of the Black Talk Radio network on February 12, 2015. Guests were former Tennessee Deputy Sheriff Mark P. Lipton and Dr. Richard Olivito, Director of the Midwest Center for Constitutional Rights. 

The discussion suggests that the “Haves” and the “Have Nots” in America can be sorted into four different Americas . . . one comprised of people struggling to overcome brush-offs and run-arounds by U.S. government officials.

 Tune-in to determine if you detect four distinct America’s from this riveting COC broadcast.

ADULTS: The Primary Problem With America’s Youth?

Download Podcast

That’s a distinct possibility given what we learn from Crimes of the Century May 29, 2014 broadcast.  Your COC co-hosts were joined for that show by key organizers of the 2014 National Week of Action Against Incarcerating Youth.  And what they shared was NOT some soft-on-misbehaving-youth, liberal rhetoric.  Instead, the panel of passionate youth advocates provide compelling evidence that America over-criminalizes its young people.

The insights of COC guests Raees Ramero, Jeni Hanes, Cathy Mendoza, and Paulette as well as Corey Chatman make clear that the line between appropriate youth accountability and preventable victimization of America’s youth has been blurred, often by misguided, sometimes misbehaving adults.
