Everyone should listen!
Wrongful convictions illustrates how innocent people are convicted by police who target the black population primarily, form opinions and try to make the case fit their (usually young or black, or both) suspect, blatantly lie to the suspect and often browbeat them into a false confession. It also shows how lazy or unethical jurors will vote guilty to please the majority in order to go home early on Friday or simply to avoid controversy or conflict. Laws need to be changed, as well, so that once DNA evidence proves one’s innocence, that person can be immediately released. It should not take 3-5 years to go through the courts in order to be released! The death penalty is barbaric and should be outlawed, but giving young people life in prison is almost as bad. The system is broken and hopefully, Podcasts like Wrongful Convictions will educate enough people and encourage them to vote to change the politicians who support these laws!
