Kansas physician Kris Neuhaus, hounded by taliban-like state officials on an anti-abortion witch hunt for her role in providing required second opinions for murdered Kansas abortion doctor George Tiller, talks with host Dave Lindorff about her ordeal, and about her big win in court over the Kansas Board of Medical Arts that had revoked her medical license and tried to sock her with a $90,000 bill for the costs of that hearing.
Investigative reporter Linn Washington, Jr., a renowned Philadelphia journalist, journalism professor and legal expert, tells "This Can't Be Happening!" host Dave Lindorff how the Drug 'War" is costing $50 billion a year in law enforcement costs alone, and how users get years in jail while too-big-to-fail banks that are found to have laundered billions in drug money just pay fines. He also talks about how rampant police brutality, once largely reserved for minorities, is increasingly meted out to whites and blacks alike.
ThisCantBeHappening host Dave Lindorff interviews Frances Goldin, progressive literary agent and progressive fighter extraordinaire, about her new book "Imagine Living in a Socialist USA" and about her remaining goal in life: seeing Mumia Abu-Jamal freed from his life-time prison sentence in Pennsylvania.
