1/28/16 Podcast Brad Garrett

In Podcasts

Brad discusses a couple issues that are front and center this week.  First you have the ongoing situation in the hinterlands of Oregon.  Authorities finally made a move on Tuesday, though it resulted in one death.  And now they are trying to end the stand-off once and for all.  The initial hands-off strategy had its detractors, and now it appears to be evolving.  Brad gives his take on how things are being handled, and why things are being handled as they are.  Also, Brad’s take on the Congressional task force recommending that mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenders be reserved for “drug kingpins,” , and calling on prisons to encourage inmates to participate in programs and treatments proven to lower recidivism by offering them time off their sentences.
