Broken. Any reader with skepticism about how broken the criminal justice system really is should read Bryan Stevenson’s well-written book about his decades working at the Equal Justice Initiative titled, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption. Stevenson presents cases of the wrongly convicted, and the efforts to obtain justice. At the center of the book is the story of Walter McMillian, convicted as a young man of a murder he didn’t commit. There’s both sadness and hope on these pages, and I finished the book feeling good that lawyers like Stevenson are working hard for justice.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
