  1. This podcast is a wonderful resource. As a former public criminal defense attorney, I would recommend that the podcast devote time to the assembly-line system of justice represented in the approximately 95 percent of cases resolved with guilty pleas. This means that guilt is never actually examined and adjudicated following the overwhelming percentage of arraignments and indictments. Guilty pleas also mean that questionable search and seizure police practices are effectively encouraged; it means that false testimony and lack of evidence are never uncovered even though they lead to criminal records and incarceration.

  2. Thank you! The work that you are doing is incredibly important. I am a survivor of the Alabama Prison system and it touches my heart to know that people like you are taking an interest in the unjust incarceration of the American people. Keep moving forward and know that even during your toughest days, you make a difference!
