Menendez. King. Bobbit. In the last five years high-profile cases with controversial verdicts have put the spotlight on a criminal justice system that seems far from fair. Now Judge Burton S. Katz, a veteran of 25 years as a prosecutor, defense attorney, judge, and teacher, exposes the abuse and misuse of justice in this country and what can be done to fix it. He reveals:-- Why in court, winning is everything and the truth means nothing-- Why lawyers are allowed to select the most bigoted and uneducated jurors-- How racial politics controls the criminal justice agenda-- Why judges who cannot follow basic rules of conduct stay on the bench-- and more.
