It Is Time for a New Civil Rights Movement | Adam Foss | TEDxNatick

Attorney Adam Foss thinks big. “It is time for a new civil rights movement,” he says. Waiting for the next “Rosa Parks” or next “Malcolm X” is not productive. Instead, he tells listeners to “stop waiting,” because our “new leaders are in this room. Each one of you can do something.”

Adam is a former Assistant District Attorney in the Suffolk County Office (Boston). The “Root” named him one of the 100 most influential black Americans of 2016. In 2015 he was recognized among the 40 most up-and-coming lawyers in the U.S. by National Law Journal. In 2013 the Massachusetts Bar Association voted Adam Prosecutor of the Year. Adam is a fierce advocate for criminal justice reform and the importance of the prosecutor in ending mass incarceration.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Public defender case overload is ‘ticking time bomb’ in Mo.

Public defender case overload is ‘ticking time bomb’ in Mo.

The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution guarantees every American facing trial the right to a lawyer, even if they cannot afford one. But across the country, the public defender system is being stretched to the breaking point, and Missouri may be ground zero. John Yang reports with producer Frank Carlson, in collaboration with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

In 2010 Boosie Badazz was indicted on murder charges, which he spoke about in detail during a recent interview with VladTV. The Baton Rouge rapper explained that he fought the trumped up charges in court, which he said his lawyers agreed were bogus. While facing seven murder charges and capital punishment Boosie shelled out 0,000 in legal fees, and he added that he would have been charged had he been given a court-appointed lawyer.

During the conversation, Boosie also opened up about being locked up with fellow Louisiana rapper C-Murder, and Boosie revealed he’s trying to release a collaborative album soon. When asked about his time spent with C-Murder in jail, Boosie revealed that the former No Limit rapper doesn’t act like prison fazes him or gets him down. Boosie added that C-Murder had taken a real mature stance on the situation, and the “Like a Man” rapper explained that there were times where he just wanted to turn up in jail and get high. When speaking about doing drugs behind bars, Boosie said that it felt good to beat the system while in prison.

To hear more of what Boosie had to say during the interview, including how his lyrics were heavily dissected during the trial, hit the above clip.

Real Lawyer Reacts to A Time To Kill (full movie) // LegalEagle

Unfortunately, racial issues come up in our judicial system. A Time to Kill deals with those issues head-on, in a gripping way.

A Time to Kill stars Samuel L. Jackson as Carl Lee Hailey, a heartbroken father who avenges his daughter’s brutal assault by shooting the bigoted men responsible for the crime as they are on their way to trial. He turns to Jake Brigance (played by Matthew McConaughey) to defend him.

Brigance is a new lawyer who has inherited his firm from a his disbarred mentor, played by Donald Sutherland. Brigance struggles to get Hailey acquitted in this small, segregated Southern town, given Hailey’s race and the deliberate nature of his crimes.

Hailey and Brigance struggle not only against the community’s prejudice is personified by the nefarious prosecutor (played by Kevin Spacey) who tries to rig the trial, often in ways that are completely unconstitutional.

A Time to Kill is based on the book by the same name by John Grisham. This was his first novel — which became a best seller set up Grisham’s entire career.

Even though this was a more serious legal movie than I tend to deal with on this channel, it was fun to take a look at Grisham’s first legal thriller. You can tell that some of the nuance of his later works is missing here, but the story is incredible. I missed this when it came out in 1996 (and I don’t think this one gets played on cable — for obvious reasons).

I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It’s one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous.

Today I’m taking a break from representing clients and teaching law students how to kick ass in law school to take on lawyers in the movies and on TV. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth.

His struggle for equal rights and those of millions of African Americans did not come easily. VOA’s Chris Simkins has more on one of the pivotal events in the civil rights movement that brought national and international attention to King and his philosophy of non-violence.
