Tonight on #theUSApodcast we speak with Eliza Orlins who is running to be the next District
Attorney in Manhattan NY. The recent movements across the nation to ameliorate police
departments and usher in criminal justice reform have sparked many to seek changes in
leadership. Many feel as if changing those who have let misconduct fester will FINALLY change
criminal justice for the better. This is especially true in the Manhattan District Attorney office
where many high-profile cases, police misconduct and bail reform have been front and center in
the public eye. In this episode, we speak with Eliza Orlins about how she plans to change the
culture of criminal justice in NY, what do we do about bad cops and what her vision for a better
NYC will be. You can follow Eliza Orlins @ElizaOrlins
