Wed, 05/23/2012

On Tuesday, May 22nd, up to 45 inmates began a hunger strike to protest conditions at Virginia's Red Onion State Prison. They are demanding that prison officials provide medical care, nutritional food, and access to complaint and greivance forms. The Human Rights Watch issued a report in 1999, only a year after the Super-Max prison opened, claiming the facility failed to embrace laws protecting inmates from abusive or cruel treatment.

KBOO's Zeke Harrington spoke with John Mac Gaskin, a former inmate of Red Onion State Prison who now works with Solidarity With Virginia Prison Hunger Strikes.

Prosecution Complex: America’s Race to Convict and Its Impact on the Innocent

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 05/14/2012

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey speak with Daniel Medwed, author of "Prosecution Complex: America’s Race to Convict and Its Impact on the Innocent."

American prosecutors are asked to play two roles within the criminal justice system: they are supposed to be ministers of justice whose only goals are to ensure fair trials, whatever the outcomes of those trials might be—and they are also advocates of the government whose success rates are measured by how many convictions they get. Because of this second role, sometimes prosecutors suppress evidence in order to establish a defendant’s guilt and safeguard that conviction over time.
