Tell Somebody
A weekly public affairs program on KKFI-FM 90.1, Kansas City community radio.
Marjorie Cohn – Grand Jury Manipulation, Kelly & Walker on Killer Drones  

Marjorie Cohn, author, criminal defense attorney and professor of criminal law and process at Thomas Jefferson University of Law returned to Tell Somebody for the December 25, 2014 edition of the show to talk about how the grand jury process was manipulated by St Louis County prosecuting attorney Robert McCulloch in the case of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.

 

On last week’s show we just had time for short clips of the comments of Georgia Walker and Kathy Kelly the night before they were convicted and sentenced for protesting drone warfare at Whitman AFB.  The Christmas day broadcast had a more extended version of their remarks, and this podcast includes a few minutes more than that.

Kathy Kelly’s Conviction & Ray McGovern’s Confrontation

Three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly and Kansas Citian Georgia Walker were convicted of criminal trespass for trying to offer loaves of bread to the commander at Whiteman AFB in Missouri and engage in conversation about drone warfare.  Kelly was sentenced to 3 months in federal prison. She talked to Tell Somebody the night before her court appearance for the December 18, 2014 edition of the show.

Then we hear again from former presidential daily briefer and CIA analyst Ray McGovern.  You didn’t see it on the fawning corporate media, but Ray had a contentious television appearance alongside Pete Hoekstra, former chair of the House Intelligence Committee from 2004 to 2007, to talk about the recently released summary of the Senate intelligence report.
