Can They Do That? The Photoshopped Mugshot

Postindustrial Audio, Criminal Injustice Podcast, Can They Do That? The Photoshopped Mugshot

In today’s episode:

Following a string of bank robberies, Portland police put together a photo lineup of suspects — including one man whose mugshot had been digitally manipulated to remove prominent facial tattoos that were not present on the robber’s face as described by witnesses and as shown on surveillance video. Can they do that?

Professor David Harris and guests take on everything from racial bias to use of force... from surveillance technology to mass incarceration... and from police abuse and misconduct to the astonishing, frequently hilarious misdeeds of "Lawyers Behaving Badly." It's not a lecture hall, and you don't need a law degree to keep up. But you'll walk away from each episode with a deeper understanding of what's wrong with the criminal justice system – and what to do about it.
