RM90: VA Takes A Second Bite At The Apple

RM90: VA Takes A Second Bite At The Apple

RM90 comes online this week with a disturbing due process violation in which Virginia is going to try to civilly commit Galen Baughman. Ashley Cloud, the staff attorney for Liberty and Justice Coalition, joins us for a discussion about Galen’s situation. She then walks us through a newly signed bill in New York. Ashley leaves us to then tackle the other items. First off is a man in California is mistaken for someone on the registry, and gets beaten for this resemblance; A quick mention about a registrant focused podcast called Pariah Nation; Progressive prosecutors respond to US AG Barr’s comments being anti-law enforcement; Mississippi is trying really hard to be worse than Alabama prisons; Cash bond system in Wisconsin keeps those with few means behind bars; California Governor Newsom signs police use of force reform bill into law; Homeless in Los Angeles are being given fewer options of where to exist; Guy Hamilton Smith is on The Takeaway from WNYC; Scalia seems to go against his own core beliefs; Arizona sets a high threshold for ankle monitors – don’t pay, go to jail.
