the Left & the Law: the Innocence Project

program date: 
Mon, 04/28/2014
Jan Haaken and Mike Snediker discuss the Innocence Project which seeks to free those wrongfully convicted of crimes. They discuss the development of DNA technology that made it possible to discover the large numbers of wrongful convictions, and the reasons for those many miscarriages of justice—including tunnel vision or confirmatory bias, police and prosecutorial misconduct, and mistaken eyewitnesses. Juries are still instructed to consider the level of confidence of eyewitnesses, even though there is no relation between confidence and accuracy.
