Floyd McKissick asks a question during the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations meeting at the Legislative Office Building in Raleigh, N.C.  McKissick, a sponsor of the 2009 Racial Justice Act, said the act didn’t go far enough in making amends for the unfairness of the trials and sentences of African American defendants. “RJA is a remedy, but the remedy did not fit the egregiousness of what these defendants suffered,” he said. “Rather than having sentences changed from death to life without parole, they really should have been given a new trial that was free of racial bias.” (Chris Seward/The News & Observer via AP, File)

FILE - In this June 3, 2019, file photo Chicago Police officers investigate the scene where a man was shot in the Fuller Park neighborhood of Chicago.

The city's top police officer says the new tool shows how easy it is for people accused of gun-related crimes to get out of jail and back on the street. But critics say the Gun Offender Dashboard unfairly maligns people who are presumed innocent. (Tyler LaRiviere/Chicago Sun-Times via AP, File)
