A Crisis of Citizenship

Thursday, July 26, 2018

Cities like Norfolk can't fill juries for trials, and cases are being delayed. One of the most basic rights guaranteed by the US Constitution is being undermined, because citizens aren't doing their duty at the local level. Jonathan Edwards of the Virginian Pilot, who covered this story, will join us along with Norfolk Sheriff Joe Baron and the clerk of the Norfolk Circuit Court, George Schaefer. It will be a discussion about justice and civic engagement in the 21st century. We'll also check in with Mal Vincent to find out what's going on this week in Mal's World.

Today's Guests: 

Jonathan Edwards - reporter at The Virginian-Pilot 
Joseph Baron - Norfolk Sheriff 
George Schaefer - Clerk of the Norfolk Circuit Court

Coming up after HearSay: A Way with Words
