Following yesterday’s discussion, Attorney Alton H. Maddox Jr. deconstructs the legal issues involved in the police killings of Eric Garner (July 17, Staten Island, NY.) and Michael Brown (Aug. 9, Ferguson, Missouri), and discusses the challenges of assuring just outcomes in such cases, which notoriously are rife with police, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct.
Both cases already are showing signs of political subversion, Maddox says. This not only could derail justice, but also long-overdue legal reforms.
A question-and-answer period follows Leid Stories’ interview with Maddox.
