On this episode of the Felony Friday Podcast host John Odermatt is joined by the man know as the "Godfather" of the Lions of Liberty, Howard Snowdon. Howie shares what originally turned him on to liberty during his youth and explains why he has grown so passionate about criminal justice reform specifically.
Howie and John kick off the felony discussion with the FBI's change that makes animal abuse to a Class A felony, a topic that is surely near and dear to many folks. They share their thoughts on whether they believe animal abuse should be a felony and question the reasons why activities like horse or dog racing are not viewed as being abusive. Next, Howie and John discussed legislation proposed in Arizona that would criminalize the recording of cops in public. The state senator proposing this legislation claims the motivation for this legislation stems from his time-serving as a police officer when he was distracted by the famous Wilson Pickett. You can't make this stuff up!
Please tune in next week when John will be joined in the Felony Friday studio by Regina Hufnagel, a former Correctional Officer for the Federal Bureau of Prisons and now current member of the Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) community.
