Holodomor: The Forgotten Ukrainian Genocide

In 1932, the Ukraine was a thriving farming nation. At the time, Joseph Stalin was trying to take back control. He was attempting to collectivize all farms, bringing all agriculture under state control. This led to a man-made mass starvation in a nation where 85% of the population was farmers.Why are a majority of people unaware of the 1932 Ukrainian famine, the Holomodor?

All War is Darkness

Re-Release: It Hits Home

This episode is a re-release of Episode 3 from Season One of the Pursuit.Government, big or small, really does impact people’s lives. And more than that, it sets the tone about what people believe they can do about their own lives. And when government makes people feel as though it’s untrustworthy or the individual is unempowered, in democracy, that’s bad. In our system, it really needs to be a system of laws and not just of people exerting power.Image Credit: Institute for Justice

The Patient's Right

Mental Illness Behind Bars

Shownotes:When left untreated, individuals with severe mental illness can occasionally end up in jail for minor charges. The system is cyclical, recidivism rates are high, and law enforcement acts not only as judge and jury, but also as caretaker. The mental health crisis in this country is severe, and government only exacerbates the problem.Mentions:Throughout this episode Tess Terrible talked with; Alisa Roth, Justin Volpe, Judge Leifman, Walter Thompson, Leah Reed, and Ayesha Delany-Brumsey.Music by Cellophane Sam

Mental Illness Behind Bars

Pressured to Plead Guilty

In 2018, just under 3% of all federal sentences were the outcome of a jury trial. An overwhelming amount were the consequence of plea deal. Does the current system of deals and agreements make us safer?Mentions:Throughout this episode Landry Ayres talked with; Clark Neily, Kevin Ring, Molly Gill, and Lucian DervanMusic by Cellophane SamImage Credit:https://fordlawokc.com/plea-bargains-explained/

Pressured to Plead Guilty

Second Chances

Prior to November 2018, felons in Florida were barred from the voting booth for life. That meant that about 10% of the voting age population in the state was disenfranchised for having a felony conviction. When someone owes a debt to society, how should we determine when it’s paid in full?Mentions:Throughout this episode Natalie Dowzicky talked with; Julie Ebenstein, Neil Volz, Lance Wissinger, and Ashley ThomasImage Credit: New York PostMusic by Cellophane Sam

Second Chances

I've Already Been Punished Once

If you are convicted of a crime, can the police take hold of your personal property as part of your sentence? Forfeiture has resulted in many individuals losing some of their most valuable possessions. It has not helped police fight the War on Drugs and it remains one of the largest threat to personal property rights.Mentions:Throughout this episode Tess Terrible talked with; Tyson Timbs, Sam Gedge, Theshia Naidoo, Solicitor General Fisher, and Natalie Dowzicky.We also included Oral Argument from Timbs v. Indiana at the Supreme Court of the United StatesImage Credit: Institute for JusticeMusic by Cellophane Sam

I've Already Been Punished Once

6: of Happiness

We hear life, liberty and property, the Lockean version, or life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, which was something that the Founding Fathers of course used in the Declaration of Independence. It’s really interesting and important that property was replaced with pursuit of happiness. In order to be able to pursue the American dream, something that people even today risk their lives coming from other countries to come to the United States to be free and to be able to pursue their right to earn an honest living, to earn food and shelter for their families and to create things. You need to have property rights. You need to have ownership. You need to know that the things that you own and the things that you create are yours.Music byCellophane Sam.

5: Incentives Matter

Due to the lack of transparency across most states and within the federal government, we simply don’t know whether people are convicted of a crime when their property is taken or not. Even the Department of Justice, which tracks more details about seized property than most states, does not track whether or not forfeited property was forfeited in conjunction with any sort of criminal charges or conviction.Music byCellophane Sam.
