John Conroy talks about a new study from the Better Government Association and the Center on Wrongful Convictions that finds that the most common cause for wrongful convictions was alleged government error and misconduct by police, prosecutors, and forensic officials. Then a former Illinois State Police investigator speaks about his investigation of police misconduct in the wrongful conviction of two men. And Eight Forty-Eight kicks off a series of dispatches from reporters traveling along the Chicago River and the St. Lawrence Seaway for the new series Front and Center.
