Henderson & Thomas on Rapping on Criminal Justice

Stephen E. Henderson and Jordan Thomas (University of Oklahoma - College of Law and Colorado State Public Defenders) have posted Seeing Those We’ve Rendered Invisible – A Clarion Call for Criminal Justice (Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law, 2021 Forthcoming)
Jonathan Rapping, Gideon's Promise: A Public Defender Movement to Transform Criminal Justice (Beacon Press 2020)

In this brief review, we situate Rapping’s work among those demanding criminal justice reform, praise an unrelated bonus, and propose a friendly amendment to nudge his vision over the finish line of justice. It will not be enough to provide newly enabled and supported public defenders to those our systems consider indigent. We ought to provide them to us all.
