Topic 3: Workers' Rights. COVID-19 has singlehandedly taken out a good share of our workforce. Many have been laid off, or having to put work on hold while others have had to continue working in unsafe conditions. This has caused some labor disputes and strike's across the country.

Unprisoned Season 2 Radio Hour: The Myths We Hold About Our Criminal Legal System

From Eve Abrams | Part of the Unprisoned series | 52:59

In this hour we hear two stories interrogating two myths about our criminal legal system. First up is The Myth of The Super Predator, an idea first made famous by then-first lady Hillary Clinton and one we still haven't fully shaken off: that some children -- almost always Black and brown children -- are beyond redemption.

Next is Victim/Criminal, the story of Hakeem Carter, who was brutally attacked while walking home from work one night. Once Hakeem had physically healed, he was still traumatized mentally; he only felt safe when he had a gun. One night while walking with a friend, police stopped Hakeem and searched him. Though Hakeem had a legal permit to own his gun, he did not have a conceal-to-carry license. Hakeem was prosecuted as though he were a criminal. The system never saw him as a victim.

Ep6 In this hour we hear two stories interrogating two myths about our criminal legal system.  First up is The Myth of The Super Predator, an idea first made famous by then-first lady Hillary Clinton and one we still haven't fully shaken off: that some children -- almost always Black and brown children -- are beyond redemption. We follow the story of Joel Ware, who was an accomplished criminal by age 14 and served Juvenile Life in prison until the age of 21.  Joel went on to become a highly successful social worker and, subsequently, an engineering student. His life story refutes the super predator myth and lays bear society's actual challenges.
