Unconscious Bias in the Justice System

Hosted by  • 

Sandra Bland was pulled over by a Texas trooper for failing to signal a lane change. A police dashcam video released yesterday shows the increasingly hostile encounter. Would the officer have pulled her over if she were white? Would he have threatened to “drag” her out of her car and “light her up?” Biases undermine every stage of our justice system, from police to prosecutors, judges, and juries.
