Lizz Kuhn also spoke to the Corrections class. The topic was race as it applies to arrests, indictments and convictions. Lizz Kuhn explained to Georgia’s future GBI Agents, sheriff’s and the like that race should not be a factor in any arrest or conviction, but we cannot ignore what is happening in some places. Lizz Kuhn further explained the lack of mental health treatment in certain cultures and how certain societies view mental health treatment as a “problem” as opposed to a remedy.
