Parole Board Rejects First Test of Medical Release Law

Hosted by  • 

A new state law provides for inmates to be released when they are sick, aged, paralyzed or otherwise no longer a threat to the public, but at the first opportunity the state Parole Board refused to release a man who's a quadriplegic. Does the Board want to scuttle the medical release program? Will elected prosecutors demand continued imprisonment because of the brutal crimes that led to convictions? Also, a new, state-of-the-art public school no students can go to.  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Saudi Arabia and the "Club of Kings."
