On Thursday April 25, 2013 the first edition of the Legal Roundtable-Viewpoint! airs on Cox Cable Ch. 21 and U-Verse Ch. 99 at 9pm. The show will air again on Sunday April 28, 2013 at 10am. and throughout the month of May.
The Viewpoint! features guests of diverse interests and backgrounds discussing local, state, and national current events. On this edition of the Viewpoint! guests discussed the recent teen rape convictions in Steubenville, Ohio and the same-sex marriage issue that's currently before the U.S. Supreme Court.
In the first segment Southern University Law Professor Herbert Brown, Jr. and community leader Mr. Lloyd Benson II debate several issues surrounding same-sex marriage, including: whether civil unions or domestic partnerships comply with the fundamental right to marry; an explanation for what appears to be more a generational gap rather than party divide over same-sex marriage; the transition to mainstream support of same-sex marriages; the advantages of traditional marriages over same-sex marriages as well as the shift away from many traditional marriage principles that may support upholding same-sex marriages.
Later in the show, Attorney Murphy Bell and Miss Black Louisiana USA Chante' Rice, who is also a high school teacher discuss the impact of social media on juvenile delinquency in light of the recent teen-rape convictions in Steubenville, Ohio. Guests discussed the statistics on social media use among teens, how social media activity can directly result in criminal conduct (sexting, cyber-bullying, cyber-stalking, online impersonation, etc.), as well as how teenagers, as in the Steubenville case, often exploit their otherwise criminal conduct on social networking websites leading to arrests and ultimate use at trial as in the Steubenville case. Guests discussed how the schools are dealing with these issues as well as ways to better inform parents of how to more closely monitor their teenagers' social media use.
In the final segment of the show, Attorney Afi Patterson and LSU Law Professor Christopher Tyson continue the discussion of the Steubenville teen rape case focusing on the impact of rape culture among teens- particularly males, and how this influences male behavior. Guests also discussed the impact of rape culture on victims of rape and the social stigma rape victims often face as society often attributes complicity to rape victims based on their conduct or actions preceding the rape.
Our guests shared a full range of insightful and thought-provoking views and comments on these important social issues. You'll definitely enjoy joining in on our discussion on The Viewpoint!
This show begins airing this Thursday on April 25, 2013 on Cox Cable Ch. 21 and U-Verse Ch. 99 at 9pm. The show will air again on Sunday April 28, 2013 at 10am.
