The guest today is your everyday Oklahmoan who is tired of the rampant corruption and abuse that police and prosecutors of the state get away with on a daily basis.

****A NOTE ABOUT TODAY'S SHOW**** Our guest today is remaining ananymous due to legitimate concerns to their safety. Already, law enforcement has engaged in activity that is nothing short of reprsial and harrasment for the guest's continued efforts to push back against their abuse of power.

Uncovering the Misconduct of Police, Prosecutors, and Judges w/ Johann Drolshagen

Thanks to the 1963 case of Brady v. Maryland, prosecutors are supposed to give the defense attorneys any evidence that may be beneficial to the defense’s case. Despite this requirement, police misconduct has been allowed to fester for decades as prosecutors and judges openly flaunt their mandates share this evidence. Furthermore, the legal profession itself fails to police prosecutors and judges who allow the misdeeds of police to go unchecked. This entire cycle calls into question decades worth of prosecutions because of potential failures to disclose evidence, but what can be done if everyone in the system is playing a role in allowing the corruption to continue?

This week, Hunter spoke with Johann Drolshagen, to answer that very question. Johann is the CEO of Level Playing Field solutions, and has helped to create a nationwide, publicly accessible database, called the brady list, to make it easier for communities to report and track misconduct by police, prosecutors, and judges. By bringing this information into the light of day, Johann hopes to combat the corruption gripping millions of Americans trapped in our criminal legal system.

The Brady List - Tracking Bad Cops to Force Accountability Through Transparency

In 1963, the U.S. Supreme court ruled, in Brady vs. Maryland, prosecutors must turn over exculpatory, or favorable evidence to the defense to lessen the instance of faulty convictions. This applies to the history of the arresting officers, especially if that officer has a track record of corruption. Unfortunately, this is not happening and the courts are refusing to abide by the ruling. On this episode of the Free Thought Project podcast, Jason and Matt sit down with Officer Jody and Johann Drolshagen — the creator of the Brady List. The Brady List is a platform which Drolshagen has built that allows allows Organizations [LEOrg], Prosecutors, and Peace Officer Standards & Training [POST] Departments to enter their independent findings, in any number of cases, in direct compliance with Brady and the Freedom of Information Act in order to help the courts follow the original ruling.

Keeping a database on problem cops will help ensure trust in the community through transparency and force accountability through oversight. The Brady List is a solution to many of the problems within the US justice system. (Length: 1:05:03)
