Radley Balko writes in the Washington Post on January 22, 2015, about the massive blind spot of experience on the U.S. Supreme Court on how criminal justice actually works on the street and in the courtroom.  The reality is that most Judges have never worked as Defense Attorneys, stared into the desperate eyes of the accused (not all of whom are guilty), seen police cheat to obtain convictions which they see as doing justice, made payroll for a small law firm or worked outside of large institutions or the government. This creates an unnatural dichotomy between reality and the academic, ivory tower, conception of the practical reality.
