INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Does Our Local Criminal Justice System Work?

 

Our criminal justice system is a unique balance of moving parts – forces tasked with protecting the community, as well as the rights of the accused. INSIGHTS convenes representatives of these multiple forces, including American Civil Liberties Union Hawai‘i, the Prosecuting Attorney, the Public Defender and the probation system, for this live discussion. Does the system work?

Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case
