Balance the Scales of Justice in Your State

The story of Greg Taylor’s arrest and exoneration is a perfect way to begin a discussion of your state’s criminal justice system. Greg’s case includes snitch testimony, faulty forensic science, questionable decisions by his attorney, and a rush to judgement by the police.
