Vulture capitalists, Pope smoke, $tudent debt bubble, NYPD & Kimani Gray
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin calls out the corporate press for their round-the-clock coverage of ‘pope smoke’ while neglecting a Guantanamo hunger strike, and the DHS for buying 1.6 billon rounds of ammunition. Abby then talks to Pete Eyre of Cop Block about the NYPD’s involvement in the death of Kimani Gray, and their egregious violations of civil liberties. Abby interviews Michael Dannenberg of Education Trust about the $1 trillion student debt bubble. BTS wraps up the show with a look at Charles and David Koch’s financial empire and the extent of their influence on the corporate takeover of America.
