A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Children Being Sentenced to Adult Prisons

A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Children Being Sentenced to Adult Prisons

Sam Thurman, 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. Sam, 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. Our Special Guests for tonight's show are National Organizing Executive Director, Carmen Perez, of The Gathering for Justice organization and Mark Clements, who was wrongly convicted and sentenced to death row at the age of 16. A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit.
