GUESTS FOR THURSDAY JULY 23, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: A Missing Algerian Plane Assumed Crashed as More MH17 Victims Return Home! Another Botched 2Hr Execution...this time in Arizona Is it time to end the death penalty? or at least ban death by lethal injection?
- Jerry Austin, Ohio-based political consultant who has worked for many candidates over the years from Sherrod Brown to Paul Wellstone and as Jesse Jackson's 1988 Presidential Campaign Manager. He's on the campaign trail in Memphis, Tennessee! Politics! Politics! Politics!... and we'll get Jerry's thoughts on the big news stories of the week: Yet another botched execution last night in Arizona takes nearly 2 hours with prisoner visibly gasping for air multiple times; Gov Jan Brewer orders a review of the death penalty process. In Israel and Gaza, despite Secretary John Kerry traveling to Tel Aviv this week, the violence doesn't seem anywhere near to ending (Israel bombed a UN-run school being used as a shelter today!) AND... Vladimir Putin, the EU and the Ukrainian separatist rebels - Ukrainian military planes continue to be shot down, but nobody has claimed responsibility for shooting down the Malaysian passenger plane traveling from Amsterdam. Solemn ceremonies this week as the victims' remains slowly return home to be identified and returned to their families.
And YOUR calls, of course...
