Kozinski on the justice system

November 24, 2015

Radley Balko posts five short (90 – 120 second) videos made when the Charles Koch Institute interviewed Judge Alex Kozinski.

Federal appeals court judge speaks out on police militarization, redemption for convicts, false confessions, criminal justice reform

As part of its push for criminal justice reform, the Charles Koch Institute (yes, that Charles Koch) has just posted a series of interviews with Alex Kozinski, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

Kozinski is often tagged as a conservative, but he has become one of the loudest, most eloquent and most consistent critics of the criminal justice system on the federal bench, both in his opinions and in his writing outside of court.

Here’s one of the clips.

I don’t known a lot about the judge but I admire the things he’s been writing and saying in the last few years. He seems to actually give a damn about the people who get caught up in the justice system.
