Ezekial Edwards, Director of the Criminal Law Reform Project at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), joined Ari Rabin-Havt on The Agenda early Thursday morning to discuss the ACLU’s latest report, A Living Death: Life without Parole for Nonviolent Offenses.
“You had a 1 in 100 chance under Reagan and Clinton of getting your sentence commuted (for nonviolent drug offenses). You have a 1 in 5,000 chance under President Obama,” Edwards said.
“I don’t know why President Obama and the Department of Justice have not taken a more aggressive stance, but it’s one of the things that we call for in this report.”
