Episode 2: Criminal Justice

Ignorance, Fear, Hate, Short-sighted Legislation:
This pattern has been repeated through out history.  Every generation
needs to differentiate itself from the last and music has always played
a role in that redefinition.  Mozart rolled over Beethoven,
Tommy Dorsey was punk,  Richard Wagner’s bombastic opera’s were pre-electric Heavy Metal, and some of your living relatives burned Beatles records.
AMPT Radio illustrates this process with a look at some recent legislation
put forth in the UK called The Criminal Justice Bill that sought to give
the police broad powers to lock-up just about anybody that seemed a little
“different.”
