The US incarcerates more people than any country in the world - and 70% are people of color. Do we need better mental health care inside prisons -- or do prisons themselves cause trauma and madness?
Psychiatrist and civil lawsuit expert witness Dr.Terry Kupers, author of Prison Madness: The Mental Health Crisis Behind Bars and What We Must Do About It, discusses overcrowding, racism, sensory deprivation, isolation, and sexual abuse in the disgraceful US prison system.

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme court took another step in the long - and many say misguided - journey to granting corporations personhood under the U.S. Constitution. In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, a five-member majority of the court increased the ability of corporations to use their wealth to influence our electoral process. Recent polling shows that more than 75 percent of Americans think the ruling further weakens our democratic institutions and the power of people to govern themselves.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/23/10

Air date: 
Tue, 02/23/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Americans don't torture. No, they call it something else. And then they get away with it.

A deeply disappointing Department of Justice report reduces the war crimes of the Bush administration to an error of legal judgment. Sorry about the torture! Shouldn't have listened to those damn lawyers. With Joe out on vacation, Abe looks at a Bizarro World in which torturers and mass murderers enjoy lives of retired luxury in between speaking gigs and Sunday talkshow appearances. Oh wait -- it's our world.
