1 Stopping The Cycle Of Incarceration | Jon Feinman | TEDxCambridge

Gepubliceerd op 22 jun. 2016
We are currently spending $64B – $80B a year to incarcerate people. But what if that’s not the best solution? What if our current solution is actually the cause of the problem. Jon Feinman discusses how our instincts play into a system of mass incarceration, and how we can focus on including people rather than segregating.

As founder and executive director of InnerCity Weightlifting (ICW), Jon is focused on aligning the vision, strategy, culture, and growth of ICW to increase economic mobility and social inclusion for young people at the highest-risk for violence; all while shifting perceptions, so that the factors that lead to segregated pockets of violence fade away changing the course for future generations. Building upon his experience with AmeriCorps and as a personal trainer, Jon received his MBA from Babson College in 2010 where he launched ICW.

2 Innocent Man Imprisoned for 24 Years – Now His Ex-Wife Wants His Payout

Back to menu

Steven Phillips was wrongly convicted of sexual assault but then exonerated and freed after 24 years in prison. He received a settlement worth $6 million from the state of Texas, but his ex-wife Traci Tucker, who divorced him around nine years into his sentence, sued for a cut of the money.
She actually won, but Phillips is now appealing the decision. Does Tucker deserve the money? If so, how much? How much pain and suffering do the spouses and other relatives experience when a loved one is imprisoned? Should Tucker have sued the state instead of her ex-husband? Does anyone else deserve Phillips’ money?

It’s a network of like-minded young women who’ve only met online yet have taken the courageous decision to put their lives in each other’s hands. This network has a presence in Canada.
