Law Professor Ben Davis on holding the Bush Administration accountable for their actions

Locus Focus
program date: 
Tue, 05/12/2009

 Hosted by Barbara Bernstein

The Bush Administration is now history but their criminal acts live on. How do we as a nation hold these characters accountable for the many apparent crimes they committed during the past 8 years. Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein talks with Ben Davis, Professor of Law at the University of Toledo College of Law, about his efforts to get Attorney GeneralEric Holder "to appoint a non-partisan independent Special Counsel to immediately commence a prosecutorial investigation into the most serious alleged crimes of former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Richard B. Cheney, the attorneys formerly employed by the Department of Justice whose memos sought to justify torture, and other former top officials of the Bush administration."

Raw Interview with a Judge from El Salvador

I got the pleasure of co-interviewing a judge from El Salvador back in March, 2009. This is a pretty rough edit (unfortunately my Spanish is only rudimentary making it difficult to edit this well) but a fascinating topic! I hope to be posting more of the interview online as I continue to work on it!

The main focus of the interview was about gang violence in El Salvador- including how the judicial system is often corrupt when dealing with such issues.

The interviewee asked to remain anonymous.
