Bill reports on the hypocrisy of “justice for all” in a society where billions are squandered for a war born in fraud while the poor are pushed aside. He draws particular attention to the failing legacy of Gideon vs. Wainwright, the landmark Supreme ruling that established the constitutional right of criminal defendants to legal representation, even if they can’t afford it. Turns out true justice -- not just the word that comes from our lips when we recite the Pledge of Allegiance -- is still unaffordable for those who need it most.
Watch Bill's connected conversations with civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson and journalists Martin Clancy and Tim O’Brien for more insight and context on Gideon as well as current inequalities in America's criminal justice system.
