"It is also true that we have such disproportionate punishment in the United States right now. And what I mean by that is that if you think about the idea that jail in prison should be protecting public safety. We've just gone way way beyond what we need to do to deter crime. And to we also have jails and prisons that do not prepare people well to come back almost everybody goes to jail in prison is going to come back into the community. So for a variety of reasons, we've created this counterproductive system, and there's this term, I think is useful a little technical, but it's criminal genyk. So carcinogenic means things that cause cancer criminal genyk means things that cause more. Crime and jail and prison are criminal genyk people come out there. More likely not less likely to be a danger by committing more crimes. And I think that some of the reporting that were about to talk about bears some of that out. So let's jump into that in just a second. But first I want to remind our listeners that you're listening to KCBS in-depth this week. We're speaking with Emily basil on was a staff writer for the New York Times magazine and also teaches at Yale Law School. Her new book is charged the new movement to transform American prosecution, and and mass incarceration. So like, I've been hinting at all along a lot of the reporting that you did it la- straight. Some of the dynamics that you're describing here you followed along a number of defendants as they worked their way through the criminal Justice system to featured most prominently, I want to start with one of those young African American man from Brooklyn charged with illegal gun possession in that case. He had the opportunity for diversion. He did not go to jail. Of actually, I should say he did not go to prison. Tell me a little bit about what diversion meant for him. I tell our listeners what version is and what it meant for him. Sure. So the idea behind a diversion program is that you're diverting people from jail in prison. You're punishing them or providing consequences for them that still impact them, but don't involve locking them up. So Kevin gets to this kind of crossroads in his case ominous. Kevin. Yeah, exactly. I didn't give the real name for Kevin because he asked me to protect his privacy and safety, so Kevin gets to a crossroads with his case where he's offered a deal if he pleads guilty, he'll get a two year prison sentence. But that prison sentence will effectively be suspended while he's given an opportunity to go through a diversion program. It's a year long mostly involves working with the social worker there acquire moments like curfew and drug testing, and you have to get a job, and you have to make some progress. Press in your education for in his in his case involved getting GD if he is successful in completing diversion program, then he doesn't have to go to prison and the charges against him dismissed and sealed so it's a really valuable opportunity, and it's one that is provided. That's very unusual. I honestly couldn't find another program like this in the whole country where the the DA's office the district attorney's office in Brooklyn runs this program, and they're working with people who are convicted violent Fallon's. That's a politically risky thing to do. Once. We imagined people to be in that category. The district attorney's office worries like if something goes wrong, if Kevin walis in this program hurt someone that could really blow up on them politically and destroy the whole program, but they are willing to take this risk. And they've had really good results in terms of the offense re-offending rate of the people who complete this program. And I think that that. And what I mean by that is that they've had good results in that very few people who complete. This program re-offend. And I think what you see there is that when we take a bet on people, and we're talking mostly about young men most of that low income most of them black when we take a bet on them. And there's this real effort to follow through and the sense that I try to show by telling Kevin story on my book. He's working with the social worker. It becomes a close relationship. And there's the sense that Kevin's fate matters to someone and that he has this place. You can go to talk like, so for example, his best friend is killed tragically during the year that he's in this program. He has someone with therapeutic skills to go and talk to about it. I think all those things really did make a difference in Kevin's life. And when I think about how he's doing now versus what would have happened if gone to prison, it just seems like a profound difference and a lot of difference as you said came from this program in this program came from Eric Gonzales who was the first Latino deserve. As Brooklyn district attorney's. So I suppose this would be an example of DA really making a big influence on the outcome of giving case. Yes, I think that's fair to say and Eric solace. Ran on a progressive platform and has in office made a big promise, which is to make jail in prison. A last resort. That's a way of really changing the whole narrative of how we think about punishment, and what locking people up is really four what the purpose of it is and Gonzales done, some other interesting things just recently, he told his prosecutors that as a general rule rather than asking for long sentences of probation, which often trip people up. He was going to ask for the minimum possible term. That's another important element of the system. I think we don't talk enough about this court mandated supervision, where you have an average of twenty conditions you have to apply to comply with and they're things like you can't go to a bar or you have to be home. Every night is certain time. These are not things that make sense. They're not. They're not consistent with adulthood, as we know it, right? Like quota would be like if you could get hauled into jail every time you were out past nine o'clock at night for five years. Anyway, that's another important change. I think it's all us and certain other prosecutors are trying to make the other individual that you reported on extensively that I want to touch on briefly before we get to the broader movement that this is all taking place in the context of is nor Jackson, she's a teenager from Memphis who was accused of murdering for mother. She actually got a trial by jury, but your reporting highlights some of the questionable prosecutorial practices that were used in her case. Yeah. So nor was eighteen when her mother was brutally stabbed death in the middle of the night. This terrible crime. This is the white family in a middle class neighborhood in Memphis. That's the kind of crime. There's a lot of pressure to solve there were no obvious suspects. The DNA went off to the lab for testing and in. In the meantime, suspicion starts to swirl around Nora largely because she was out partying the night. Her mother was killed in the couple hours in the middle of the night that she couldn't account for. She also had lost her father a year and a half earlier. So she didn't have any parents who were looking out for her. So she gets charged with her mother's death. She is convicted at her trial and then years later after she has spent a long time in prison. The Santa the Tennessee supreme court ruled that the prosecutor and her case Amy Wira had into serious ways, violated constitutional rights. Why wreck and her assistant the trial had withheld evidence of nora's that could have helped approve for innocence. And then why are also violated nora's? Right. Not to testify. So we all have this. Right. Also in the constitution. You don't have to speak at your own trial. If you don't want to and it can seem counter intuitive. Why wouldn't you want to explain, but it's very standard for defense lawyers to advise our clients? Not to testify, especially young woman who is really struggling at this point in her life. And so even though Nora testified at the very end in this key moment in the closing argument. Amy wiig says just tell us where you were Nora in front of the jury as if Nora had cast herself under suspicion by not accounting for her whereabouts. So anyway, for those two reasons conviction was overturned, but this is really a story of prosecutorial overreach and this conduct. It's an unusual story, but it's very vivid. And I wanted people to experience what it is like to go through this Howard experience. If you're someone like Nora. Yeah. And I thought I found this reporting very helpful just because you referred to join Pfaff earlier in a point that he made in his book locked in was that we oftentimes think about the cost to society of the crime, but we don't necessarily think about the cost to society of the punishment. Whether it's the the the cost that's exacted upon the defendant themselves, or whether it's the cost of their family members from taking out of society. And I think that the reporting that you did helps us understand a little bit. What folks are bearing as they go through the criminal Justice system. I'm really glad you brought that up because I think you're absolutely right. And that we often only think about crime when something terrible happens. And so we make a lot of policy based on the worst crimes what we miss is the huge cost of over punishment. So all those people whose lives are just wrapped it in ruined by going to jail and prison. Maybe they're innocent. Maybe. They just don't need to be punished that extent, there's an enormous costs from all of that. But it's relatively invisible. It's not the same thing. Someone getting murdered in the middle of the night. And so I think we miss it. Even though if we were being rational, we would see that that cost is actually overwhelming. No skeptics hearing about this might think to themselves. Well, is the problem here really so much that the criminal Justice system isn't working or is the problem that America has a crime problem, and the criminal Justice system is responding to that obviously we have seen a decline continuous decline over decades in the crime rate, but that crime rate is still much higher than it was in the nineteen sixties America still has a relatively more crime violent crime compared to other developed nations. So what do you say to those concerns that if we are taking away some of these resources or these tools from prosecutors that they may not be able to exact the crime reductions that people would like to see I ask people to be opened the idea that so for sure public safety is a hugely important goal. It should be the most important goal in this conversation. The question is what strategies really got us there. We have learned a lot more about preventing crime than we knew at a. Time like the nineteen sixties and one of the most important insights that law enforcement is really only small part of the picture. So we think about the police and the courts kind of naturally in this conversation, but we should also be thinking about the evidence that what matters the most is the social cohesion of neighborhood. And what I mean by that is like a place where you wanna live where people are looking out for each other where they're good schools where their health services where they're play grounds that attract people that bring foot traffic to the streets..

Is a furious at Bredesen's she took her Bredesen's sign out of her front lawn after he said he would vote for cavenaugh. So there you go. I'm telling you, can I can I hang onto the pink hats people and get you tea party folks at Saint, no, it's not gonna Bill. Oh, I'll tell you about this in a moment. There's actually peer reviewed paper on quote and ethnography of breast wrought masculinity. They're talking about hooters breast, Ron. But I. Twitter ran over the weekend. Google design lead, David Hoge claimed Republicans will descend into the flames of hell instead of paraphrasing this or whatever I will just I'll read you what he said here. I hope the last images burned into your slimy. Evil. Treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames of hell F, and I may cleaning this up f- period you period all period to period, hell, period. I guess he's emphasizing each word there, and they're all in caps to. Well, apparently got some pushback, he soon deleted the post made the follow up tweet condemning the Republican party while also adding that he should have been more eloquent unless condemning yes, I deleted that tweet. He tweeted. Yes. Those opinions remind personally, and I am responsible for them. Yes. I should have been more eloquent and less condemning. Yes, I still believe the GOP is wrong and not serving your best interest. Yes. I still believe we can do much better. Well, that's a little bit calm down. Isn't it? According to hogs linked in profile. He's worked as an you ex designed lead at Google and San Francisco since December of two thousand thirteen now most of this is enough to get most any of his fired. But as far as we know nothing has happened to this guy. Nothing Jim in Alabama. Jim what's up? The same. I refer to that knew about the UN talk about global warming tenure only at ten years, and they suggest in order to mitigate it that we have a carbon tax. It would push gasoline two hundred fifty dollars a gallon. Well, I think if we air out another thirty year, we might see that same report again because you know, shit history Jesus else. Well, that's true. These things tend to come around every thirty years, don't they? Afternoon. Thank you. It's like a comment or something? The HALE Bopp comet so they'll come back around last time, by the way, if we do the thirty years. Well, let's say it was about seventy eight seventy seven seventy eight seventy nine we were all going to die because of global cooling. You see we gotta do something were causing the earth to cool. And so we got to do something about that. It's all about if you'll notice there's a common thread in all of this hysteria, and that is to dismantle capitalism. That's why I tell you this. This is this is the common thing, we only have ten years to do something about it. They've been saying that for thirty or forty years. There's a history here we have of bogus climate science claims to. But now the new study is that human the race faces extinction of sperm count continues to fall. And I noticed this that they had in the article if male sperm count continues to fall is there a different kind. I'm just wondering. So they stipulate if male sperm count continues to fall as opposed to female sperm count. Okay. I'm just wondering. Well, you know, we are in a whole new world. Aren't we? Trans this that and the other. There was another thing. Oh. So speaking of political correctness I've never heard of this guy. But apparently a lot of people have because a lot of people follow him on Twitter. The guy's name. He's an astronaut by the name of Scott Kelly. Anybody familiar with Scott Kelly, pardon my ignorance, I don't follow space. Anyway, he apparently felt the need to apologize after he was attacked by online mob for using a rather innocuous quote from Winston Churchill. Yeah. He actually used a quote from Winston Churchill. Did not mean to offend by quoting Churchill he wrote my apologies. I will go and educate myself further on his atrocities racist views, which I do not support. My point was we need to come together. As one nation. We are all Americans that should transcend partisan politics. Well, Churchill had a long and storied political recourse. He could be boorish and stubborn with a tendency to see things in black and white terms. And there were times when he got things for ministry wrong. For instance, his colonialist tendencies polluted as opinions on India. They say, but many of his attributes the frustrated critics also contributed to erode leadership during World War Two. And this is of course, it saved Europe and really save the world. And this is what I've told you about. About people in general and countries to you gotta look at people in their totality. You gotta look at the United States. And it's still tell you can't pull out the Indians and say we're celebrating indigenous peoples day to day because of all the horrible things we did Indians and not understand the context of this country in a larger scope not to mention that. I was reading the Neil boards posted this today on Twitter. That the the white man didn't do anything the Indians. Do they weren't already doing it themselves when we got here. So nothing has changed by the way. What did this Scott Kelly, quote from Churchill that was so horrible? He was telling these online mobs that were that were going after all this cavenaugh stuff, never surrender never surrender. Was that Churchill? I've been triggered. Triggered. Oh my gosh. You didn't tell me. I should you should have let me know that was coming..
