Whether you think it's an ass or an asset, the law affects us all. Justice may be blind and its path may be strewn with law-makers and law-breakers, but David Jessel and Sue Cook are in the studio to help light its way. And Ed Boyle investigates the controversial cases and the legal loopholes that make justice's route so tortuous and time-consuming.
This week: is it worth complaining against the police? One inquiry into alleged police brutality is analysed, with disturbing results.
