And if so, what is the alternative to capitalism? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  How do you define capitalism? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Life After Murder

Today on Your Call: How can someone who murders re-enter society?

On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Nancy Mullane, author of Life After Murder: Five Men in Search of Redemption.  We’ll also speak with Jesse Reed, one of the men she profiles in her book.  The California state parole board only approved parole for 10 percent of murder cases last year.  Governor Jerry Brown then approved 80% of those.  So what does it take to be released?  And how should those who have killed re-integrate in society? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  It’s Your Call with Holly Kern
