Two Strikes & Tutwiler: Inside the U.S. criminal justice system

On the next Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we’ll discuss two documentaries from The Marshall Project and Frontline about the criminal justice system in the US.

Two Strikes examines how a former West Point cadet got life in prison under the little-known two-strikes law, and Tutwiler documents what happens to pregnant women in prison and their newborns.
