DUE PROCESS

Sunday, 8/17 at 9:30am & 7pm; Tuesday, 8/19 at 11:30pm

 

CONFESSIONS: The interrogation of Michael Crowe caused him to confess to the murder of his sister, although he was innocent. His admission was extracted by police after 3 days of interrogation. That was one kind of criminal confession – one of the millions made each year.

And although no one claims all those confessions are coerced, should we believe they’re all voluntary – all true?
Following up on our probes of guilty pleas by defendants who can’t make bail, or who agree to plea deals rather than take a chance at trial, this Due Process looks at the history of confessions in criminal law with the help of a national expert in the field.
Law Prof. George Thomas is the author of “Confessions of Guilt: From Torture to Miranda and Beyond” - and our only guest on this important edition of Due Process

CLASSROOM CLOSE-UP, NJ

Sunday, 8/17 at 7:30am, 12:30pm & 7:30pm

Patrick O’Neill has one goal for his fourth-grade students at Ocean Township Elementary School in Oakhurst -  to love coming to school. He uses technology to grab their attention and track their learning.

Twenty years ago New Jersey became the first state to mandate a holocaust/genocide curriculum.  Since then educators across the state have developed powerful lessons ranging from the holocaust to modern day genocide, and most recently the 911 curriculum.

Juliana Frankenfield teaches American Sign Language at Vineland High School.  She was nominated by one of her students for a Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction by the National Society of High School Scholars.

His students at Eisenhower Middle School know him as Merced Solis, but his fans know him as World Wrestling Federation Champion Tito Santana.  From a migrant worker as a child to a Spanish teacher in Roxbury, Señor Solis shares his gratitude for education.
