Life In Prison: California Medical Facility

Just a note, the prisoner Richard Lauranzano, is serving his 27th year of a 30 to life sentence for among other things child molestation and conspiracy to commit kidnapping and murder of the same child. Perhaps the KPBS people think that this issue is covered on all sides with a 2 minutes presentation but could they have found a better spokesman, I think so. The prisoner submits, not on his behalf of course, that these elderly prisoners pose no threat and are being kept well after their sentences warrant. But in his case he hasn't even met the minimum 30 years for attempting to kill his victim after testifying about their own molestation and yet he is taking up two slots in this little clip. I have no problem with thoughtful, insightful, activist journalism, I sincerely feel this program falls short on all counts.
