Guilty Until Proven Innocent

  The scales of justice are horribly unbalanced. Ever since learning about the fate of Troy Davis, a man who was convicted of murder and, despite new evidence that would have exonerated him, was executed anyway. I started learning about The Innocence Project, co-founded by Barry Scheck (of the OJ Simpson trial fame), an organization "dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted criminals through DNA testing, and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice." Today, I spoke with Mark Godsey is the Carmichael Professor of Law and Director of the Ohio Innocence Project at the University of Cincinnati College of Law. He serves on [...]

Meanwhile, the Obama administration just lifted the ban that kept BP from pursuing new leases in the Gulf of [...]

Hey Marco Rubio, I'm talking to you with your sanctimonious Religious Freedom Protection Act of 2012. I called Rubio's office this morning on the show and asked why he hates women.  This pandering piece of horrible legislation would allow ANY business or corporation to refuse [...]
