Should Peremptory Challenges Get The Ax?

Hosted by Hon. Richard Ginkowski, Pleasant Prairie, WI

Last year Arizona eliminated peremptory challenges in jury selection.  Other states, such as Washington, Connecticut, New Jersey and California, now require greater judicial scrutiny of challenges to prospective jurors.  Is it time for peremptory challenges to get the ax?  Gavel Talks host Richard Ginkowski discusses this with retired Judge Arthur Burnett who at 89 is the executive director of the National African-American Drug Policy Coalition.
