The federal government attempted to build a case of guilt by association hinging on a single phone call, which would have left Sean Weston incarcerated for 20 years. The case of this beleaguered Baltimore businessman provides a stark example of our criminal justice system’s lack of equity as he has had his store raided on multiple occasions for selling legal products provided in stores online and elsewhere in the city. We also speak to James Gibson, who spent 29 years in prison after being brutalized, burned, and tortured by Chicago’s Commander John Burge and his infamous "midnight crew," a group of officers who violated the civil liberties of citizens and committed acts of violence.
