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.
(I like it)
