The question on the minds of many NFL fans lately is: Does Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson have gang ties? The better question might be: What does “gang ties” mean, anyway? And even more, does this loose characterization threaten the contract status and livelihood of other players around the league? To answer this we aired the latest commentary by political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal.
We aired an interview with Christine Hemingway, who filed a lawsuit against the BC Corrections, Surrey Pre-Trial Services Center and the Alouette Correctional Center for Women for neglect – based on the lack of adequate healthcare she received while in provincial prison in violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
We also have an interview with Joel Bitar, a prisoner who was extradited to Canada from the USA for his involvement during the G20 protests in Toronto in 2010 and who is presently incarcerated in the Central North Correctional Centre, which is a maximum security prison located in Penetanguishene, Ontario.
We read an update on the hunger striking prisoners at a Washington State Immigration Detention Center.
