Michael Gizzi is a criminal justice sciences professor at Illinois State University.

Michael Gizzi is a criminal justice sciences professor at Illinois State University. He often focuses on the courts and the interaction of police, prosecutors and the law.

Gizzi says yes, the Chauvin case is important. But in one sense the importance is what didn't happen -- an exoneration -- rather than positive ground gained from a precedent.

Listen to Gizzi's interview on WGLT's Sound Ideas:
