Mississippi Justice with Jason Talley of Motorhome Diaries:
From Motorhome Diaries:
SOMEWHERE IN INDIANA – I’m currently in Indiana with the rest of the crew heading southward back to Jones County Mississippi It’s only fitting that we release our interview with Indiana born and raised Radley Balko where he discusses “justice” in the state of Mississippi.
Radley was kind enough to sit down with us while the Motorhome Diaries rolled through Washington, DC. At his blog, the Agitator, Radley covers the intersection of criminal-justice and civil liberties. And dogs, he blogs about his cute dogs. As the senior editor at Reason magazine he recently broke the story of Dr. Steven Hayne which he called a case study in expert testimony gone horribly wrong. Hayne was Mississippi’s “quasi-official state medical examiner” responsible for the questionable convictions and imprisonment of untold numbers of folks who were sent to prison based on evidence he manufactured.
In this free-wheeling interview we discuss Jones County Sheriff.com and Radley’s belief that the days of out of control sheriffs departments are numbered.
