Abstract:

Segment 1: U.S. Marine Corps Colonel George Fenton tells Anne Strainchamps about the military's newest "non-lethal" weapon - active denial technology, a microwave mounted on a Humvee that can be used to generate an impenetrable wall in riot control situations. Also, William Staples, author of The Culture of surveillance : discipline and social control in the United States," tells Steve Paulson about the latest in psychographics and biometrics and why civil libertarians are worried. Segment 2: Animal behaviorist Patricia McConnell, host of Calling all pets, discusses her new book, The other end of the leash : why we do what we do around dogs. Segment 3: Journalist Ted Conover writes about his year as a prison guard in New jack : guarding Sing Sing. He tells Steve Paulson that wise guards accept that they rule with the consent of the prisoners, and recalls a few of his most dramatic encounters with inmates. Also, Chris Rodriguez, a felon serving time at Green Haven Correctional Facility in Stormville, N.Y. reads from his essay, "Reunion," and talks with Steve Paulson about the culture of prison.
