We speak with Paul Butler, Albert Brick Professor in Law at Georgetown University Law Center and legal analyst on MSNBC, about the jury selection process and the importance of racial equality within juries.
We speak with Oklahoma-based attorney Kelli Masters, who was part of Jones’s legal delegation during his September commutation hearing. Masters was initially skeptical about Jones’s innocence, but after reviewing the evidence, was convinced that Jones was wrongfully convicted.
The Texas Observer, a non-profit investigative newsroom, reviewed more than 400 Texas Ranger investigations of jail deaths over the past decade. In their investigation, the Texas Observer found that of the more than 1,100 people who have died in jail custody in Texas since 2010, the majority were pre-trial detainees, people like Sandra Bland, who were never convicted of their alleged crime. We spoke with Mike Barajas, a staff writer for the Texas Observer. He is one of the writers of the special report, "Locked Up and Left to Die" for the Texas Observer.
