"Silent Injustice" is a joint investigation by The Washington Post and CBS News "60 Minutes" on how flawed evidence has led courts to falsely convict hundreds if not thousands of defendants. The flawed forensic tool was discredited years ago, but somehow FBI headquarters never seemed to get the message out. And not surprisingly, a large number of the wrongly convicted are African American, bolstering the argument I have been making on this blog that America has a long way to go before becoming a truly color-blind society.
