Blacks and criminal justice system

Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles was fatally shot outside of his Chicago home Monday in an incident that police have called an "attack against the criminal justice system."

The “Race and Wrongful Convictions in the United States,” report was published Tuesday, and finds that Blacks are more likely than White Americans to be wrongly convicted of crimes they did not commit.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled for the first time Monday that indications of racial bias among jurors during a trial may result in a verdict being thrown out and a new trial.

Elliott Earl Williams' tragic death in an Oklahoma jail cell represents a damning indictment of the criminal justice system's treatment of not just Black men, but the mentally ill and U.S. veterans.
