Chris Hedges, the author and presenter of “On Contact” on RT, joins Lee Camp for a conversation around his latest book about teaching in American prisons. They also discuss corruption in the media and the U.S. System of Justice. The persecution of Julian Assange and Steven Donziger have garnered attention over the last few weeks for their egregious displays of judicial corruption in service of the world’s most powerful people. Hedges provides context for your outrage in their cases. He then reveals his experiences teaching prisoners in maximum security facilities and expresses support for incarcerated people who have chosen to protest their living conditions.

Jaffer Khan reports on another case of judicial corruption from Tennessee. A judge in Rutherford County has been exposed by ProPublica for sending, mostly black, children into juvenile detention at an outrageous rate. Her court recently settled an $11 million fine over their corruption but a lot more needs to be done to protect children from her court.
Anders Lee ends the show with a look into the history of the French people’s 19th Century experiment with Democracy now known as, “The Paris Commune.” The commune was short-lived and extinguished brutally but it has echoed through left-wing history.
