Alan Dershowitz’s stark warning: Justice system becoming infected by critical race theory
Alan Dershowitz, the famed law scholar and appellate lawyer, has a stark warning for judges, prosecutors and defense lawyers: America’s justice system is being corrupted by identity politics and critical race theory.
In an interview with Just the News, Dershowitz deplored the growing trend in recent criminal cases toward political agendas supplanting the neutral consideration of evidence and law that has been the lifeblood of U.S. jurisprudence for more than two centuries.
“It’s becoming much more responsive, unfortunately, to critical race theory, basically, everything’s about race,” Dershowitz told the John Solomon Reports podcast in an interview aired this week. “Everything’s about race or politics.
“The justice system has stopped being about is this particular person innocent or guilty beyond a reasonable doubt based on the evidence and based on the law. People today are rooting, cheering for verdicts. They want verdicts to reflect their narrative. They want verdicts to prove their way of looking at the world. Trials and justice have ceased to be about individual justice. They’re about identity politics.”
He is right.
It was "racism, pure and simple" for members of the liberal media to mock Kyle Rittenhouse for crying on the stand when testifying about the events that led to the shootings in Kenosha, Wis., Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Saturday. https://t.co/FgKp1OeETj pic.twitter.com/hz0kCdIi0c
