A panel of key figures within the criminal justice system talk about what they do and how the system functions, using the mock detention of a member of Middlebury’s Selectboard to illustrate what an arrest and the subsequent court process might look like – and then answering questions about race, implicit bias, mass incarceration and a host of other topics, both esoteric and pragmatic. Chief Thomas Hanley of the Middlebury Police Department; Addison County State’s Attorney, David Fenster; Addison Superior Court Judge, the Honorable Samuel Hoar; and Jon Kidde, representing restorative justice, all address these tremendously complex, challenging and frequently controversial issues with insight and candor. An informative show dedicated to the goal of fostering engagement, transparency and trust between public servants and the public they serve. Recorded 10/17/16.
