Should Michael Vick be Forgiven?

morningamp:

When NFL quarterback Michael Vick signed to the NY Jets last week, some animal right advocates and fans reignited the conversation about whether Vick, convicted of felony animal abuse charges in 2007, should ever be forgiven. Is dogfighting a particularly egregious crime or does this attitude align with the way our society generally feels about ex-offenders? The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams spoke with Cynthia Bathurst of Safe Humane about what kind of dogfighting is happening in the region and how her group makes connections between hurt dogs and hurt people.

The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams come up with a verdict during their robust discussion.

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

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.

The Farm Bill: How this will Drastically Affect Low Income Families and Food Stamp Users

The Farm Bill was finally passed yesterday after two years of debate in the House and the final version will take $800 million a year out of the food stamps and nutrition program over the next 10 years, for a total of an $8 billion reduction. What will low-income families do to make up this gap? What will Congress do to help people earn enough to pay for their food? The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams discussed possible solutions to these questions with the help of a couple of Vocalo callers and listeners.

The NATO 3: Terrorists or Angry Drunks?
111 plays

morningamp:

This week, Cook County’s first terrorism prosecution began against three men who are being charged with planning terrorist attacks during the 2012 NATO summit held in Chicago. While the defense is claiming that they were just loud and intoxicated as they encountered underconvered cops who instigated the situation, the prosecution says that the men (now known as the NATO 3) were bonded by anger and intended on a mission to battle against the police on the street. They were arrested immediately after the cops found four assembled firebombs a few days before the summit. The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams were joined by Dr. Coya Paz as they anaylzed the case and debated on whether or not they were really committed acts of terror, or if they were just angry, drunk citizens.
