Whole Truth With David Eisenhower

Is American Criminal Justice Just?

Season 3, Episode 6 of 9

"The Talk" by African-American parents to their children, especially their young men, about dangerous interactions they may well experience with police is a rite of passage with which even the first African-American President of the United States, and the only currently serving African-American Republican United States senator, are personally familiar. Still, most Americans hold judges, prosecutors, and especially police, in high esteem for the great sacrifices they often make to protect and serve our communities. Can we find a path forward in which a broad majority of Americans, including Americans belonging to racial or ethnic minorities, can believe that American criminal justice is, in fact, just? Guests: Tara Setmayer, CNN Political Commentator, ABC News Political Contributor and former GOP communications director on Capitol Hill; Paul Butler, a professor at the Georgetown University Law Center and Harvard Law School, and author of Chokehold: Policing Black Men; Rick Jones, President of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Executive Director, and founding member, of the Neighborhood Defender Service of Harlem.
