Political Prisoner Radio - Free Hugo Pinell w/ Sis. Kiilu Nyasha

Former Black Panther and journalist Sister Kiilu Nyasha joins the program to discuss the case of Hugo L. A. Pinell, nicknamed "Yogi Bear". Mr. Pinell was coecred into a plea bargain for a crime he maintains he did not commit. "In 1964, a white woman accused me of rape, assault and kidnap. I was 19 years old. I turned myself into the authorities to clarify the charges against me which I knew to be falsified. The deputies beat me several times because the alleged victim was white, and the Public Defender and the Judge influenced my mother into believing that I would be sentenced to death unless I pled guilty. At their insistence and despite my innocence, I pled guilty to the charge of rape, with the understanding that I would be eligible for parole after 6 months. When I arrived at the California Department of Corrections, I was informed that I had been sentenced to three years to life." - Hugo L. A. Pinell Mr. Pinell has been incarcerated on the prison plantation for nearly half a century and the majority of that time has been in solitary confinement.

Retired Lieutenant Commander Diane Goldstein joins us again via LEAP. She retired from the Redondo Beach Police Department and has more than twenty years experince in law enforcement.

Germany Legalizes Racial Profiling w/ Jerome Almon

Jerome Almon is CEO of MC Entertainment which consists of a modeling agency, TV/Film production and a record label. He has been warning for years that countries like Canada and Germany were moving to legalize racial profiling and were targeting Black entertainers and athletes with criminal records while allowing their white counterparts to enter. A German judge recently ruled that Police could use race as probable cause to detain a person. The case involved a Black German who was repeatedly stop and harassed.  In 2007, Jerome Almon filed a lawsuit against Canadian immigration officials.

Stopping the San Francisco 49ers w/ Allen Jones

Allen Jones joins us again to update us on his efforts to keep the San Francisco 49ers from leaving the Bay View Hunters Point community, which he says will be devastating to the predominately Black area. We will also get his views on Bounty-Gate, which involved former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams who was caught on tape specifically calling for serious injuries and bodily harm to key players on the 49ers roster.


I will be discussing some of the latest news in the Trayvon Martin tragedy including Zimmerman launching a website to ask for funds to pay his legal bills and support his family.

The civil rights group Color of Change is going after the corporate sponsors of ALEC who they say are responsible for the attacks on voting rights and behind the Stand Your Ground laws in many states. Have you heard of ALEC?

 I will ask again, should the Black community fight back against police brutality by boycotting Christmas if those who want our votes do not put Federal legislation addressing the issue on the table?

 Rick Santorum has dropped out of the GOP nomination race, Gingrich may drop out soon leaving only Ron Paul and Romney.
