Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson

This is a Memoir/Bio and it's a book that will touch deeply anyone who reads it.

Why do we want to kill all the broken people?-Bryan Stevenson

I dont do what I do because I have to, because Ive been trained to. I do what I do because Im broken too. You cannot defend condemned people without being broken."-Bryan Stevenson

These are two powerful quotes from Bryan Stevenson. He founded the
Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit practice which sole purpose is to defend the most maligned by the legal system those serving time on deathrow for crimes they didn't commit. By being either poor, black, ill, damaged by childhood mistreatment, or most unfortunately just not well represented by those appointed to do so, these poor folks end up buried in the legal justice system.
