About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does. As a international human rights and criminal lawyer and trial skills teacher around the world, its his most important tool. As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally. As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

Did We Learn Anything from Japanese Internments in WW2?

A new documentary entitled And Then They Came for Us is coming out about the American internment of people of Japanese descent in camps during World War 2 and the comparison to today.  I had a real privilege today to be a part of a Panel Discussion in Minneapolis on this issue along with Judge Lyonel Norris and Sally Sudo, who was herself interned as an American citizen in those Japanese camps when she was a child during the war.  The Seminar was put on jointly by the Hennepin County Bar Association Diversity Committe and the Minnesota Defense Lawyers Association Diversity Committee.  

Great seminar and great audience participation.  Hard questions and answers might be even harder.
