Registry Matters Episode 39 – How Coerced Testimonies Are Like A School Bully

On the Registry Matters Podcast Episode 39:  We start with the story of the police department staffer saying that registrants should be shot and segue into reasons to hire someone who went to prison. Other issues include: failed background checks in Idaho; a nationwide prison labor strike; California prison volunteer firefighters denied jobs on the outside; former AG says broad coalition aims to break over-incarceration; California could lead the way in CJ reform; one collateral consequence of a mandatory registry is that you’re far more likely to be killed by a police officer than for an officer to be killed. We end with a major deep dive into a case of coerced testimony in Illinois that has some very surprising language from the court.
