New In Juvey
From kangaroo courts to Canadian coat fires, this week's review of juvenile justice in the news.

Gun Violence Research
Dems push to re-start it.

Loose Ends From The Triple Crown Trail
Our very own Tom Chambers gets you up to speed. In TrackNotes.

The Beachwood Radio Hour
Production is underway!

This week's guests include:

* Angela Caputo of the Chicago Reporter explains how the foreclosure crisis continues to play out in Chicago's poor and working class neighborhoods, as told through the story of one home and one block. This is also the story of how City Hall essentially sides with the very banks that created the problem over real people whose lives have been thrown into chaos by those banks.

* Tracy Jake Siska of the Chicago Justice Project analyzes with great insight the city's (half-hearted) attempt to issue tickets for minor pot possession offenses instead of making arrests. This discussion was sparked by a Roosevelt University study released this week and discussed at a symposium on Monday about those efforts.

* Jim Coffman of the Beachwood Reporter takes on Queasy Coach Q and the Queasy Cubs in his weekly sports roundup.

* J.J. Tindall of the Beachwood Reporter reads a poem.

* And I'll play some music and round-up the rest of the week's news and items of interest.

Beachwood International
The hippest trip around the globe goes into production late Saturday afternoon. Expected stops include:

* The Bahamas, where the NSA is recorded every single cell phone call.

* Abu Dhabi, where migrant workers building a New York University campus are living in slave labor conditions.

* Rio, where drinking the water may be okay but falling into it could be hazardous to your health.

* Thailand, where the military is taking over the government in a move the United States refuses to define as a coup.

* Australia & New Zealand, where government leaders applaud the drone assassinations of their citizens by the U.S. without trial - or even charges.

Links and supporting materials will be provided for both shows when posted.
