Clergy Abuse: Can we hold the abusers accountable and heal the community?
 
Revelations earlier this month implicating Pope Benedict XVI in cover-ups of clergy abuse in Europe are just the latest developments in an issue that is rocking religious institutions to their foundations. It is dividing communities into those accused of blind faith and those labeled anti-church, while preventing reformers, clergy abuse survivors, and the faithful from moving forward. How can we shift the debate to address the underlying issues creating clergy abuse?

Hosted by Bill Resnick, this program deals with crime in the suites that goes unpunished and crime in the streets that is punished if committed while being black.  We hear from a former federal finance regulator about the snowballing malfeasance in the finance industry; and from two incisive journalists about Goldman Sachs' raids on the public and the US Treasury.  And our Book Mole reviews Ian McEwan's new novel about the intersection between enviornmental and personal disasters.

Goldman Sacks the Treasury

program date: 
Mon, 04/26/2010

 Is Goldman Sachs "little better than a criminal enterprise that earns its billions by bilking the market, the government, and even its own clients in a bewildering variety of complex financial scams"?  Or is "Goldman guilty of [nothing] except being "too smart" and really, really good at making money?"  Drawing on articles by Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone’s political reporter; and Dean Baker, the co-director of the Center for Economic Security, the Old Mole's Tom Becker lays out the case that (as Taibbi puts it) Goldman is "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity."

Near-Deadly Error: An interview with exonerated death row inmate Juan Melendez-Colon
 
It is hard to imagine spending over 17 years on death row for a crime you did not commit. Juan Melendez-Colon did just that following his 1984 conviction and sentencing to death in the killing of Auburndale, FL beauty salon owner Delbert Baker.
