Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Ethel Lopez of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff and Ethel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
Our Special Guests tonight are Sabra Williams, Actress/Founder of The Actor's Gang Prison Project, Joshua Tepfer, Project Director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth and an Assistant Clinical Professor at Northwestern University School of Law and Wrongly Convicted, Terrill Swift, who was convicted at the age of 17 for rape & murder, a crime he didn't commit.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commitrong. For full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
