Exchange Exemplar: Our "Unfair" Criminal Justice System
Adam Benforado is a lawyer, but not a big fan of the criminal justice system, at least the way it works now.
The big problem, as he sees it, is a human one: people have flaws, so flawed people run the criminal justice system. And they often make things worse by trying to cover their flaws, in Benforado's view.
He joined us in 2015 to talk about his book Unfair: The New Science of Criminal Injustice. Note that many of the same complaints are still valid three years later.
