I went to an arraignment today for my Criminal Law class. An arraignment is a formal reading of criminal complaint in the presence of the defendant. This is where defendants enter a plea bargain.

I left with sadness, because all of the defendants except for one person were black young men. I was sitting there with the rest of my classmates and it was clear how privileged we were.

That's all for tonight.
