by John Dankosky – In the coming weeks, we’ll be examining life after prison on Where We Live. It’s prompted by an extraordinary series by WNPR’s Jeff Cohen that I hope you’re hearing. He’s been talking to guys out of prison on parole, and the parole officers who check in on them. It’s a way to put a human face on the stats we’ve been seeing – an increase in prisoners out of jail and under state supervision. Great radio…and worth a listen.
On a side note, Jeff reports on a plea deal in one of Hartford’s most shocking incidents of violence – the 2008 West Indian Day shootings.
