June 2, 2012 at 6:38 am (Capital Punishment, Conviction, Human Rights) (, , , )

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth. … In too many places, the opposite of poverty is justice.” (Bryan Stevenson)”

Bryan Stevenson is a public-interest lawyer who has dedicated his career to helping the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned.

This is his TED speech from March

The whole talk’s worth listening to, but he begins talking about the death penalty around the 8.00 mark.
