Doing Justice

Beyond Justice


In this sixth and final episode of Doing Justice, Preet tells the story of Rais Bhuiyan, the victim of a white supremacist hate crime. Bhuiyan forgave the man who shot him and launched a global campaign to get his would-be-killer off death row. The justice system isn’t only about punishment, but also about closure and forgiveness.
