Apr 14: Death of the Death Penalty in CT
Apr 14th, 2012 by Sam

Audio coming soon…

Hope you can join us for The Samantha Clemens Show Saturday morning at 10 am EDT on AM1510 in Boston, streaming live at www.samanthaclemens.com.

Guest:   Professor James Alan Fox, Northeastern University criminology professor AND Boston.com Community Voices blogger

Connecticut’s legislature has voted to abolish the death penalty in the Nutmeg state and George Zimmerman has been charged with 2nd degree murder in the Sunshine State….

But what are the ramifications?

Connecticut has only has one execution since 1976, will it make a difference? In the last few years a number of states have voted to abolish the penalty…will the trend continue?

 

  • Was Mr. Zimmermann “overcharged” or “undercharged”?
  • Is the second degree murder charge appropriate? Would have even been charged if there wasn’t such a national outcry?
  • What about life without parole for juvenile offenders??

Join Samantha on as she welcomes Professor James Alan Fox!

The two will discuss these legal topics and more.

Be sure to call the studio line to get your comments heard and your questions asked! The studio number is 617 237 1234!

Also joining the show: Vice Chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, Martha Fuller Clark!

This is not your mother’s New Hampshire.  Free Staters and ALEC are all having an impact on the state. Get the lowdown on how NH has changed, the tactics in use, and what it portends for other states and the country.   Check this out…

In New Hampshire, Republican state legislators seem to believe education is no longer something they should require. Via ThinkProgress:

Today the GOP-controlled Senate passed HB 542, which effectively ends compulsory education for New Hampshire students. Their House colleagues approved the measure earlier last year.

No, seriously. It ends compulsory education, and it’s been passed by both houses of the Legislature? Really? Really.   Here’s what it says.

 IX-c. Require school districts to adopt a policy allowing an exception to specific course material based on a parent’s or legal guardian’s determination that the material is objectionable. Such policy shall include a provision requiring the parent or legal guardian to notify the school principal or designee in writing of the specific material to which they object and a provision requiring an alternative agreed upon by the school district and the parent, at the parent’s expense, sufficient to enable the child to meet state requirements for education in the particular subject area. The name of the parent or legal guardian and any specific reasons disclosed to school officials for the objection to the material shall not be public information and shall be excluded from access under RSA 91-A.

As worded, any parent could object to the entire curriculum and substitute whatever they wanted instead, with no measurement or assessment or accountability for that “alternative material” requirement, which means compulsory education would be dead, dead, dead.  Crooks and Liars, January 5, 2012

Join Samantha Clemens this Saturday as she speaks to Roger Shamel from the Global Warming Education Network as they discuss the latest Climate Change data.

  • Has the Global Warming debate become TOO politicized?
  • Has John Huntsman sold his soul by backtracking on his original comments by “pulling a Romney” on Climate Change?
  • Was Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” hyperbole or factual?
  • When will Worcester be a coastal city?

and…

The new Rick Perry ad…  is there a problem with a President so overtly Christian?  And of a particular sect of Christianity?  And, why are Republican men so hot for those barn jackets…
