Politics, O.J. Simpson, and the rise of the angry blond white women -- Defense attorneys : we sleep very well at night, thank you very much -- Clients : thirty-nine floors is a long way to fall -- Prosecutors : being a prosecutor means never having to say you're sorry -- Judges : at least get it wrong for both sides -- Police officers : to preserve, protect, and to lie -- Jurors : nobody knows anything -- Media : shame on you for believing what we say -- The best system in the world???
A critical manifesto on the vulnerabilities of the criminal justice system argues that the modern, sensation-driven media reflects only a small and distorted example of what really happens in courtrooms. Source other than Library of Congress.
