Why Sex Offenders May Not Be at Fault for their Registration Gap

morningamp:

Sex offenders have to register at a single office in Chicago once a year, or more if they move or change jobs. But the office can’t handle the volume of registrants and people can be left literally in the cold, in violation of the law. WBEZ reporter Rob Wildeboer joined the Morning AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams as he explained how the gap is costing money and time.

WBEZ Rob Wildeboer: The Real Effectiveness of Mandatory Minimums and the Call for More Police

morningamp:

How do you solve a problem like Chicago’s gun violence? The mayor is proposing mandatory minimum prison sentences for illegal possession as a deterrent, but research groups say we should consider more police officers in the streets. WBEZ reporter Rob Wildeboer joined the AMp’s Brian Babylon and Molly Adams as he helped explore these interpretations of data and answered questions from the hosts and listeners.

Maryville: Steubenville All Over Again

morningamp:

What happened in Maryville? A case with echoes of Steubenville (drunk young victim, popular jock perpetrators, whole small town gets involved) has reignited a lot of passions as the case was closed and charges dismissed against the alleged rapists. Now the Lt. Gov. of Missouri is calling for the state’s Attorney General to re-open the case. The Council of Feminist Thought, which consisted of the AMp’s Molly Adams, guest co-host Ernest Wilkins, regular panelists Audra Wilson from Practically Speaking and Cassandro Gado from the Step Up Women’s Network discussed the story.

Barber Shop Show 120: The Price of Targeting Non-Violent Crimes

barbershopshow:

On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, we unpack Yana Kunichoff’s article for the Chicago Reporter’s Muckrakers Blog, “Could the Mayor’s plan to stop drinking, public urination worsen crowding at Cook County Jail?” She joined us to explain how so-called victimless crimes have much steeper consequences, thanks to a new City of Chicago Ordinance. Those consequences might even lead to overcrowding at Cook County Jail.

Plus, we talked to Maria Gaspar, Maria recently completed an audio documentary program through the Vocalo Storytellers Workshop. Her documentary unpacks the relationship between The Cook County Jail and the surrounding Little Village neighborhood. We also heard that documentary.

The Barber Shop Show airs live from Carter’s Barber Shop in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood on Fridays at Noon. vocalo.org 89.5fm (NWI/CHI) and 90.7fm (CHI).
