A Just Cause - American Prisons - A Traveled Road of No Return

A Just Cause - American Prisons - A Traveled Road of No Return | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Lamont Banks, Cliff Stewart, and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans. Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Lamont, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person. Tonight our Hosts will be addressing, 'American Prisons' and how they are a traveled road of no return! A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org. For more information, about A Just Cause and to Donate to the IRP6 legal defense fund, visit www.a-justcause.com.
