Charging for Activism: Portland Police, Rip-off Debit and Ferguson

Adam Carpinelli interviews Arun Gupta, a founding editor of the Indypendent magazine and was a founding editor of the Occupy Wall Street Journal. Arun will talk about the Portland Police Bureau and Multnomah County Sheriff's new racket with predatory financial companies stealing people's cash. Money is taken from all arrestees including those who are never convicted and upon release, replace their cash with a Numi Financial debit card. This company then steals the money of arrestees with multiple hefty fees. Discussion will also include the significance of this issue to activism in Portland such as the recent rallys and marches in solidarity with Ferguson.
