“The University of Massachusetts should be ashamed of itself…”

Attorneys David Hoose and Luke Ryan represented Jason Vassell, who was attacked in his dorm at UMass Amherst in February 2008. They discuss in detail the events of that evening, the aftermath, and the institutional racism that led to Jason facing 40 years in prison for defending himself, while one of his assailants faced much lesser charges, and the other was never charged.

Due to the nature of the discussion, there is some disturbing language in this podcast.
