Reason-ing with Craig Watkins

Categories: News

Just a few moments ago, Reason Magazine posted a Q&A with Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins, under the headline: "Is This America's Best Prosecutor?" In it, Watkins discusses how, under "legendary law-and-order Dallas prosecutor Henry Wade" (Reason senior editor Radley Balko's description, not Watkins'), it was "a badge of honor ... to knowingly convict someone that wasn’t guilty." He also discusses how the Republican Party is heaping criticism upon his office: "They’re doing whatever they can, even making the political mistake of attacking the work we’re doing on wrongful convictions." A late-afternoon should-read. --Robert Wilonsky
