Ep 43: Proving Innocence in Australia

 

This week we look at the cases of those proven innocent and those seeking to prove their innocence, including Kevin Henry. We examine the role race plays in the process and the way dodgy forensics, often influenced by race, can convict the innocent and control the media narrative.
