Arbitrary Justice

 Autor: Angela J. Davis  Category: abolitionism, Law, prison  Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA  ISBN: 9780195384734  Seiten: 264

The author examines the expanding power of prosecutors, from mandatory minimum sentencing laws enhancing prosecutorial control over the outcome of cases to increasing politicization of the office. Drawing on her years of experience as a public defender, Davis demonstrates how the everyday, legal exercise of prosecutorial discretion is responsible for tremendous inequities in criminal justice.
