In this episode of The 411 Live, Beverly Taylor addresses the demographic disparities that exist in those who are sentenced to incarceration and those given probation with Dr. Tina Freiburger, Dean of the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Young black men are more likely to be incarcerated than sentenced to probation than any other gender, race, or ethic group. Dr. Freiburger spends this episode revealing research she uncovered about the considerations of the judges who render the sentences and the unconscious rules at work in the judicial system. “In order for us to change [the rules] and do something about them, we first have to identify them and know they exist.” Find out exactly what knowledge the average population is missing about the rules on punishment in our judicial system.
