Our guest is Henry Liu, who'll be talking about on his experience being branded as armed and dangerous by the Portland State University security department in April -- and the Orwellian situation where he and his family are now trapped.

Then upon your release, you find out your university has plastered posters with your name on them all over the school and the internet, implying that you are a homicidal maniac? How do you get your life back?
