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.

A day after the leaders of an armed anti-government group were arrested, authorities on Wednesday urged a handful of remaining activists to abandon the Oregon wildlife refuge they have occupied for more than three weeks, saying it was “time to move on.” There are late reports that militia leader Ammon Bundy was urging the same. Meanwhile, details began to emerge about the confrontation that occurred on a remote highway between the small towns of Burns and John Day. Followers of Ammon Bundy gave conflicting accounts of how one of the men in the two-vehicle convoy was killed during a traffic stop. One of Bundy’s followers said Robert Finicum charged at FBI agents, who then shot him.
