Blog discusses aspects of the criminal justice system and philosophy. "[Pattison's] biggest objection to our Criminal Justice system is that it's complicated with enough smoke and mirrors that the simplicity of it is overwhelmed by the fog of process. Common sense dictates that if we can identify the foundational themes of Criminal Law, Defense, and the Constitution, the System is manageable. The purpose of this Blog is to simplify things from their most basic level to practical application."

Author: Jim Pattison is a former criminal defense attorney, currently teaching philosophy, criminal law and political science as an adjunct professor with Drury University and Western International University. He lives in Springfield, Mo.
