Bryan Stevenson: Ending the Politics of Fear and Anger

Bryan Stevenson on the fear and anger that drives the insane criminal justice policies in this country, and its impact on the future outlook of many of our children. He challenges all of us to get more involved, and fundamentally reorient ourselves and then these bad policies.

We have a criminal justice system that is incredibly wealth dependent. No matter how innocent you are, no matter how strong your alibi, no matter the fact that you didn't do anything wrong. It doesn't shield you from arrest, prosecution, conviction, and even long-term incarceration. Our system treats you better if you're rich and guilty than if you are poor and innocent.

Additional interesting discussions follow Bryan Stevenson's immediate remarks.
