Independent Lens Episode: "Red Hook Justice"

Season 6, Episode 24
Episode Synopsis: “Red Hook Justice” tracks cases at an innovative community court in a tough Brooklyn neighborhood where punishment takes a back seat to rehabilitation. “We make an effort to help those who want to be helped,” says judge Alex Calabrese to one young defendant. Proceedings are considerably less adversarial than in most courts. Indeed, public defender Brett Taylor says that other lawyers chide him. “You're not a lawyer,” they tell him. “You're a social worker.”
