It’s a full agenda radio weekend close at hand. Rioting, Looting & Protests have caused civil war in Baltimore. Angry crowds swept through Baltimore on Monday night and early Tuesday – smashing windows, looting stores and setting fires – after the funeral of a 25-year-old man who died after suffering a spine injury in police custody. Local leaders, as well as residents and even gang members, decried the violence, but the rioting continued. What’s going on? Dr. Frieda Birnbaum is a Research Psychologist, Psychoanalyst and Author of “What Price Power,” and she will join us to discuss what went wrong.
Then we will be joined by Professor William Anderson, Professor of Economics at Frostburg College in Virginia, who writes extensively about problems with the Justice Department and the FBI. This past week, the FBI finally was forced to admit that the vaunted “hair analysis” was bogus, another episode of the “junk science.” When combined with the scandals coming from state crimes labs and the FBI crime lab scandal of the 1990s, what we know now ““ beyond any doubt ““ is that much of the so-called scientific analysis upon which prosecutors have depended to bolster their criminal cases in state and federal courts has been worse than worthless, since it often was used to convict innocent defendants and place some of them in death chambers.
Â So join us for a lively weekend. Check local listings for times and stations.
