Prison Radio Show

Jan 22, 2023

This show featured audio from an interview that Kiteline Radio did with Jarrod Shanahan about his book called Captives: How Riker's Island Took New York City Hostage. We share this audio in part because of a news story in Montreal. In December, newspapers in Montreal announced that the province will be building a new prison for women on the island of Montreal.

We then share two interviews about the death of Nicous D’Andre Spring. Nicous died after being pepper sprayed by guards while wearing a spit mask on December 26, 2022. It later came out in the news that he had been granted bail the day before, but was not released. His family held a vigil in Notre Dame de Grace in late December with over 100 people in attendance. We talked to Alain Babineau with the Red Coalition, an organization that held a press conference on January 7th hoping to push for justice for Nicous. We also talked to Amanda from DESTA Black Youth Network about the annual New Years Eve Noise Demonstration, which went to Bordeaux jail where Nicous was killed. Nicous was an aspiring rapper and we share some of his music on the show.
