Resurrection: The Cyntoia Brown Long Episode!

Hip Hop Uncensored Podcast

On this episode of the HHU Podcast SamAnt & O'God sit down with Cyntoia Brown Long.In 2006, Brown was convicted of aggravated robbery and first-degree murder for killing 43-year-old real estate agent Johnny Allen, whom she went home with after he picked her up for sex at a Sonic Drive-In in Nashville.She told police that she pulled a pistol out of her purse and fatally shot Allen because she thought he was reaching for a gun.She then fled with Allen's guns and money. She drove away in his pickup truck.Prosecutors claimed that Brown shot Allen as part of a plan to rob him, but Brown told police she was acting to protect herself. She was convicted and sentenced to life in prison over the killing.The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that mandatory life sentences without parole for juvenile offenders are not constitutional, but Tennessee prosecutors successfully argued that Brown would technically become eligible for parole after 51 years, in 2055.Brown, now 31, was among more than 180 inmates serving life sentences in the state for crimes they committed as teenagers.She never testified during her trial, but during her appeals process, Brown, who had been a teenage runaway, took the stand and described how at the time of the killing, she was ensnared in an abusive relationship with a drug dealer known as Cut Throat who forced her into prostitution.Her case gained new scrutiny with the rise of the #MeToo movement, as her supporters drew attention to the case using the hashtag #FreeCyntoiaBrown. Criminal justice reform advocates portrayed Brown's case as an example of the unreasonable incarceration of a teenager who was a victim of sex trafficking."Did we somehow change the definition of #JUSTICE along the way??" Rihanna asked in a 2017 Instagram post about Brown that received nearly 2 million likes. "The system has failed," Kardashian West tweeted.While incarcerated, Brown earned her GED, finished a bachelor's degree and mentored at-risk youth."Transformation should be accompanied by hope," Haslam said when commuting her sentence to parole in January.On Tuesday, the National Women's Law Center celebrated the long legal battle that led to Brown's release, but with a cautionary note.Support the show (https://www.paypal.com/mep/dashboard)
