Catch me on FreedomWatch Tonight

Friday, January 7th, 2011

I’ll be on Fox Business Channel’s FreedomWatch tonight at 8pm and 11pm ET to talk about the Massachusetts drug raid that killed 68-year-old Eurie Stamps.

    Sweet — finally a reason to use Time Warner’s “new” (for them) web-based DVR programming.

    Careful if they sic Wendy (Hot-n-juicy) Murphy on you again.

    What a great time in history (2.3 M in jail) to remind people that the Nixon-inspired Drug War (and all the damage it’s done) is soooo 20th Century. I wonder how many tough-on-crime pundits have seen this chart
    and what their reaction would be:

    Just curious, are you covering this story directly or being interviewed as an expert in the field of police brutality?

    Napolitano is such a breath of fresh air: He’s seen the judicial system from the inside and knows full well what dangers we face.

    Radley, use your usual calm intelligence to present why cops are NOT your best friend.

    Using humor perhaps, inquire why so many cops have cancer. Ask why so many have chemo haircuts.

    Radley, I really like Freedom Watch and the libertarian slant getting out there; and I like what Judge Napolitano says, usually; but I really wish he wouldn’t deliver those points at the top of his voice. It would be nice if he used his indoor voice on the show. Any chance you could whisper that to him before the show?

    AlgerHiss: what is a chemo haircut?

  7. #7 |  Bad Medicine | 

    SJE, I think he means shaved, like people when they are in chemotherapy. Just a guess…

    Good to hear, Radley. You and Judge Napalitano are doing a great deal to reign in this drug war maddness, and I really appreciate it. Also, congrats on being quoted in the Boston Herald. I also found this quote to be encouraging: “The National Tactical Officers Association advocates moving away from using “no-knock” tactics during low-level drug busts that are unlikely to evolve into complex tactical situations, Gnagey said.” It’s modest, but maybe some people, including experienced tactical officers (who should know better anyway), are finally coming around to your view that these raids increase the likelihood of violence.

    No 5 star friday this week?

    Just finished watching your segment. I thought you did a great job. This was my first time viewing the show and I have to say it was quite refreshing. Is there another host on Fox or even cable in general that would treat Dennis Kucinich with that level of respect? The judge won a new fan tonight.

    Again, props to you Radley. You are making a difference.

    Great job Radley!
    You looked so tranquil.
    With a little wardrobe change you would be very convincing as a Buddhist monk.

    glad to see that Koch money at work :)

    Agree with the others. You appear very natural on television. Great job!

    Awesome Radley, just finished watching the appearance and you hit a home run. I always worry that even those like the Judge who are clearly concerned about these sorts of issues perpetuate the “isolated incident” theory by looking at each case in isolation. Just a great, great job of emphasizing that the use of these tactics on a large scale are the issue, for the safety of the public and police. This should be a simple case to make, but it’s not, as far too many people want to fall back on either blind support for the cops or the all cops are pigs trope. So again, great job.
