    C.D. - The Criminal Justice System "Reforms" by Barack Obama

    How can these policies be justified, if one has "paid their debt to society"?

    Indeed, there are many people, ex-felons, given a chance to more forward, who have indeed proven themselves worthy of respect, honor and being seen as living examples of Allah's / God's redemption.

Later we'll be joined by Shawn Whirl, tortured by police into making a false confession for a murder he did not commit and forced to spend 25 years in prison, until he was recently released as a result of efforts by The Innocence Project, attorneys and law students working to free thosewrongfully convicted of crimes.
