I’m sick and tired of seeing people who are anti-vax getting bullied on social media. We have good reasons to feel this way and simply bad mouthing us or attacking us is not going to change our mind. We will not be silenced.
I for sure will never have one again. No chance, no matter what you say to convince me. I’ve been sucked into that trap before!
They are absolutely the worst brand of vacuum cleaner. Dyson all the way for me!
I'm Ricky Kidd. In 1997, I was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for double homicide — a crime I didn’t commit. I couldn’t afford a lawyer, and the public defender I was assigned didn’t have time or the resources to prove my innocence. I spent 23 years behind bars trying to prove the things my public defender should have found in the first place. In August of 2019, a judge ruled that I was innocent and released me. After I got out, I started "I Am Resilience," an organization that raises awareness about those who have been wrongly convicted. Last month, I got married and, in December, we're expecting a baby daughter.
And I’m Sean O’Brien, a law professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. With the help of UMKC clinical students and my co-counsel, Cindy Dodge, I represented Ricky for more than a decade and eventually got him released last year. I’ve spent decades working to overturn wrongful convictions, especially for inmates on death row. Before that I was the chief public defender in Kansas City, Missouri, from 1985 through 1989.
Ricky’s story and how it illustrates the greater crisis in America’s public defender systems was the subject of a PBS NewsHour podcast called “Broken Justice,” released last year. In October, about a year after Ricky was released, producer Frank Carlson checked in with him for a special episode. Subscribe, download and leave a comment wherever you get your podcasts.
Ricky: I’m happy that we had this time! It is always fun to be with the PBS NewsHour team, along with the one individual who first believed in me, who ultimately never left my side until I came home. A fun and exciting year it has been and looking forward to the next chapter with I Am Resilience/new baby/marriage/purposed living. Feel free to listen to "Broken Justice" if you haven’t had a chance, and if you would like to support and participate in the next chapter forward for me, feel free to follow this link and share as much as possible: https://linktr.ee/IAR
Sean: In closing: Until we reform indigent defense systems, this story will play out over and over again. There are lots of ways to get involved, and lots of good people trying to change the system. Find out who is doing the work in your community, and support them. Sister Helen Prejean says if all you can do is bake a pie, bake a pie and bring it to a meeting! I'm happy to say Ricky's team was kept well-fed by people who care.
This one makes me rage sometimes. So there you are, having made some sort of mistake.
For hypotheticals lets pretend you forgot to put your mask on before going into Walmart. (This isn't about masks dont make it about masks, just using an example).
"Sir you need to have a mask on." (Acceptable)
"Why yes here it is, I'm so sorry I forgot. You're right." (Puts on mask)
We are officially done here.
"Well you see theres a pandemic going on....." (wrong. The conversation is over)
"Yeah, you're right I'm sorry man." (Acknowledged twice now, problem corrected! We are done now.)
"When you dont have a mask on you can infect other people...." (why the fuck are you still talking)
