Harvey Silverglate




GUEST: Noted author and civil liberties attorney Harvey Silverglate.


TOPIC: Harvey discusses his book Three Felonies a Day and the federal system of legal prosecution that “criminalizes the innocent” and “makes it virtually impossible for an innocent person to get acquitted.” America is now, he contend, the “tyranny of bureaucracy…The country is run not by elected officials but by bureaucracies. The election officials have neither the knowledge, the guts, nor the determination to try and curtail these bureaucracies.”
