Jaws of Justice Radio

It is the intention of Jaws of Justice Radio to investigate how to achieve justice in America, this includes issues of economic injustice, political injustice and the criminal justice system. We want to put a human face on those caught in the grasp of injustice and those that are part of an unjust system. We strive to dispel the misconceptions created by the news and entertainment industry, politicians and our educational system. We want to pull back the veil and reveal those that really write our laws and who our justice system is meant to protect. It is our intention to seek out alternatives to the present practice that puts the law before justice, alternatives that are restorative to those that have been wronged and just to those that have offended. In short, we want to inform our society of the realities of the existing systems and in doing so start a dialogue about how to create systems that truly seek justice for all.

The Jaws of Justice Radio group is made up of formerly incarcerated citizens, family members of victims, family members of the incarcerated, lawyers, and justice seeking members of our community. We invite you to join the dialogue.

Jaws of Justice Radio has covered issues of law enforcement, courts, incarceration, homelessness, economic injustice, foster care, death penalty, constitutional rights and more. We are looking for organizations and individuals to tell their story, and more folks that want to learn how to produce radio.

Two victims were wounded in the leg and the shooter, Eric Bratton was arrested. On April 4th of 2012 Eric was convicted and the jury recommended a sentence of seven years. 16th District Circuit Court Judge Jim Kanatzar ignored the jury's recommendation and instead sentenced Eric Bratton to 64 years.

On today's show host Lee Moore talks with Eric's Mother Reeca Bratton, Uncle Virgil Wright, and Aunts Kathy Ford and Janet Graham about Eric's case. They all agree that Eric deserves and should be punished for his actions. None of them agree with or understand a sentence of 64 years.

Can Parole Be Revoked Before The Prisoner Is Released? The Strange Case of Keith Drone. May 27, 2013 | 9:00 am

Keith Drone shot a security guard in the leg and was in turn shot in the head during a 1989 robbery. He was convicted and sentenced to three life sentences and 65 years. 24 years later Keith was granted parole based on his good behavior and completion of the necessary programs while incarcerated. The security guard that was shot, with the support of the Fraternal Order of Police protested the parole after the parole hearing and decision had been made. Those protests were enough to convince the Parole Board to reverse their decision. Host Keith Brown El talks with Calvin Drone, Keith's cousin and Edna Hardin of Missouri CURE about this strange case.
