Keith Brown El – What Doesn’t Kill You……
Last September, Jaws of Justice Radio volunteer, Keith Brown El was asked to speak at the Missouri CURE state convention. Keith arrived at the gates of the Missouri Penitentiary with a 15 year sentence for a robbery and ended up spending years behind bars. We play his speech titled “What Doesn’t Kill You Is Supposed To Make You Stronger” about how he survived, fought authorities to be treated humanely and the work he is doing to change the system now that he is out. Keith is presently Vice President of Missouri CURE.
