Restoring The Justice System by Bryan Stevenson

Cases like George Zimmerman, Jodi Arias, Bradley Manning and Ariel Castro may dominate the news, but much of what's happening in the American justice system remains overlooked. America now boasts the highest rate of incarceration in the world, but even more alarming are the system’s endemic injustices. Minority communities are far more afflicted by the justice system, a reality that affects the psyches of the children who grow up in them. Additionally, our system treats you much better if you’re rich and guilty than if you are poor and innocent. Bryan Stevenson believes these realities are fundamentally changing our world, and he’s devoted his life’s work to finding solutions.
