"Paul Manafort Did Not Deserve to Die in Prison"

Mugambi Jouet published this piece in The New Republic. In part:

As a former public defender, I saw firsthand that the American justice system is extraordinarily unequal. My destitute black and Latino clients in New York City regularly faced much longer sentences than Manafort, sometimes for much less wrongdoing. Nevertheless, I don’t believe Manafort should be treated as mercilessly as my clients were. Rather, in a true liberal democracy, no one would be treated this way.
