Prosecutorial Misconduct

The 6th amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees every American the right to a speedy and public trial before an impartial jury, and the right to a defense attorney. What the 6th amendment doesn't lay out are rules for law enforcement and prosecution. In this episode, we will highlight two cases: the ongoing efforts of parolee Derrick Hamilton to clear his name after twenty years for a murder conviction fraught with alleged police and prosecutorial misconduct and another in Queens that seems to have the earmarks of prosecutorial misconduct but is not yet proven. Every American has the right to a fair trial. The System examines two cases where prosecutorial misconduct may have led to wrongful imprisonment.

Life on Mars?

In 2050, Irish scientist Joseph Roche is hoping to be one of 20 people sent to the Red Planet to live (and die!) in a space settlement. A new crew of four will be sent every two years thereafter but none will be coming back. The 'Mars One' Project is the brainchild of Dutch entrepreneur Bas Lansdrop, and Dutch scientist Arno Wielders, and when they announced the project, 202,500 people applied from all over the world. As of April 2014, the candidate pool has been reduced to 706, and we speak to Joseph Roche about the next phase of the selection process. We also meet Planetary Scientist Mary Bourke, who is working to better understand geomorphic processes in extreme environments (deserts on Earth and on Mars) and during extreme events (floods, mass wasting).
