EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin remarks on news that military officials have declared an end to hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay prison, despite the fact that several detainees remain on the strike and continue to receive the twice daily torturous force-feeding sessions. Abby then remarks on Pope Francis’ change in tone regarding the Catholic Church’s more traditionally held views about contraception, homosexuality, and the global financial system. Abby then speaks to Tyler Alexander, of SecondCity about their viral comedy sketch pleading for people to fund WWIII via Kickstarter. Abby then calls our Rep. Peter King, for grouping all Somali-Americans with Al-Shabaab militants, and calling to racially profile Muslim-Americans yet again. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Eugene Puryear, author of ‘Shackled and Chained: Mass Incarceration in Capitalist America’, about how the US became the country holding a quarter of the world’s prisoners, the privatization of prisons, and the racial bias inherent in the criminal justice system.
