DUE PROCESS

Sunday, 10/14 at 9:30am & 7pm

Since the start of the War on Terror, legal scholars have been asking: “What happened to Habeas Corpus”? Even the U.S. Supreme Court has said Habeas can’t be tossed aside. Yet Guantanamo remains open, while black sites and renditions are said to survive. And, some say, the protections of The Great Writ of Habeas Corpus still suffer – all in the name of national security.

Two of those legal scholars are our guests for this edition of Due Process: Seton Hall Law Professors Mark Denbeaux and Jonathan Hafetz have taken their research and their advocacy beyond the classroom. Co-editors of “The Guantanamo Lawyers: Inside a Prison Outside the Law,” both represent detainees at Guantanamo. Hafetz is also the author of “Habeas Corpus After 9/11: Confronting America’s New Global Detention System,” while Denbeaux’s work on who’s really imprisoned at Guantanamo made national headlines and caught the attention of Congress.

VOCES ON PBS
Escaramuza: Riding from the Heart

Tuesday, 10/16 at 10pm

The Hispanic Heritage Month series, VOCES ON PBS, continues this week on NJTV. Las Azaleas are a gutsy team of women rodeo riders vying to represent the U.S. at the National Charro Championships in Mexico, where “to be Charro is to be Mexican.” Escaramuza, or skirmish, describes both their daredevil horseback ballets, ridden sidesaddle at top speed, and the intensity of their competition season. Neither life-altering challenges at home nor cartel violence across the border can keep Las Azaleas from their goal.

Take a road trip to Asbury Park’s Stone Pony during a battle of the bands competition and catch the Red Bank Roller Vixens, one of Jersey’s newest roller derby teams – a family affair!

SHELTER ME

Tuesday, 10/30 at 10pm

Actress and animal advocate Katherine Heigl hosts this one-hour, emotionally-charged television special celebrating the human-animal bond by showcasing three inspirational stories about shelter dogs and the lives they change. Every year, more than 4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in America’s shelters. Shelter Me focuses on the success stories to bring more people into the shelters to give these incredible animals a second chance. This program shows how shelter pets are helping our returning War Veterans cope with debilitating injuries; how shelter pets are teaching inmates new life lessons and follows a shelter pet being rescued from the streets and his journey through the shelters to his new home. Shelter Me is a show about redemption, hope, helping others and making a difference.
