Prosecution Complex: America’s Race to Convict and Its Impact on the Innocent

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 05/14/2012

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey speak with Daniel Medwed, author of "Prosecution Complex: America’s Race to Convict and Its Impact on the Innocent."

American prosecutors are asked to play two roles within the criminal justice system: they are supposed to be ministers of justice whose only goals are to ensure fair trials, whatever the outcomes of those trials might be—and they are also advocates of the government whose success rates are measured by how many convictions they get. Because of this second role, sometimes prosecutors suppress evidence in order to establish a defendant’s guilt and safeguard that conviction over time.

SPLC Files Ethics Complaint Against Anti-Gay Therapist

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 05/10/2012

A civil rights organization has filed an ethics complaint with the Oregon Psychiatric Association against a Portland psychiatrist for using so-called conversion therapy. University of Oregon student Max Hirsh claims that when he sought treatment for depression, he instead received therapy that focused on his sexuality. His complaint to the Oregon Medical Board was dismissed in December.

The American Medical Association opposes conversion or reparative therapy for LGBT patients, and in 2009 the American Psychiatric Association announced there was no evidence to support the practice. The Southern Poverty Law Center's ethics complain calls on the OPA and APA to investigate the psychiatrist for violation of medical ethics.
