Rob Warden, executive director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law, discusses the catalog of exonerated Americans who (cumulatively) served more than 10,000 years in prison; how DNA testing has helped overturn wrongful convictions and reveal flaws in the US justice system; ignorant jurists who have no idea what “reasonable doubt” or “presumption of innocence” mean; the big problems with eyewitness testimony, police investigation practices, jailhouse snitches and elected judges; and why the War on Drugs is making everything worse.
