Hanging in the criminal justice department at UW. The title reads: “What is the sequence of events in the criminal justice system?” As an undergrad, I’ve memorized this chart. And it’s damned hard to follow every branch – especially when every stage has a chance for a subjective decision that can mean the difference between prison or freedom. Is it any wonder so many people, particularly working class people and/or people of color get railroaded? (Taken with Instagram at Arts and Sciences Building)
