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.

Jun 05: Risk, Kids Killing, Angry Prez, MA Dems

What’s on my mind….

RISK: What do Wall Street, Big Oil, climate change, saving for retirement, and wearing helmets have in common? Human are LOUSY at assessing risk.

KIDS KILLING KIDS IN BOSTON: Not my problem, you say? Well, if altruism makes you nervous, don’t you at least want these kids to be productive citizens so they can contribute to your social security fund? Oh that’s right…you want the government to keep its hands off your social security.

ANGRY PRESIDENT: Am I the only one that actually prefers that the President keep a cool head in the face of a disaster? Does that mean I am somehow emotionally-challenged?

A THRILL SEEKER’S PARADISE – THE MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION – Well, maybe not, but… Did the Scott Brown election light a fire under the Dems? Does the success of Dems in the mid-term elections hinge on the unemployment rate? Does it matter if the state auditor talks crazy sometimes?

What do you want to talk about?
