Description

In January of 1989 the director of Oregon’s Department of Corrections, Michael Francke, was brutally stabbed to death outside his office in Salem. The murder was quickly ruled a “car burglary gone wrong” and pinned on a low-level drug dealer named Frank Gable, a man who Francke's own brother, Kevin, along with storied Oregon reporter Phil Stanford, believe has been wrongfully imprisoned for nearly 30 years. They contend Francke had uncovered a trail of corruption in the prison system— one that led to the top of Oregon’s political establishment. Murder In Oregon follows the two men on a decades-long journey, bordering on obsession, into Oregon’s drug and crime-infested underworld to answer one question: Who really killed Michael Francke?

I know this is a serious topic (and I'm loving the podcast) but I laughed out loud at the psychic having to ask what his name was and why he was calling.

This story is only the tip of the iceberg, of corruption in the prison state system.

if you really want to stop recidivism fix the problem of employment denial for felony convictions. some felony convictions are justified some simply come down to not being able to afford private attorney and being stuck with a overworked public defender. I hope you've enjoyed my ted talk. thank you for coming
