When the North Carolina General Assembly passed the Racial Justice Act in 2009, it guaranteed that no individual would be put to death because of racial bias within the state’s justice system.  Since then, there’s been a battle in the North Carolina legislature to repeal it. What’s behind this debate?  Some say clogged courts and unfounded claims by death row inmates. Attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams, along with Cassandra Stubbs, a senior staff attorney with the ACLU Capital Punishment Project and James E. Coleman Jr.,  the John S.

They explore the great debate, the repeal and what this means for inmates on death row.
