A conversation on clemency, three strikes and prison reform

My local NPR station, KUOW, aired this conversation this morning on Stevan Dozier, who recently won clemency in Washington State. He is perhaps the first prisoner to win such clemency in the country, and definitely the first in WA state. His release sparked this interesting conversation on the efficacy of WA state’s Three-Strikes (your out) Law, prison reform and prisoner redemption. It’s an hour long conversation, well worth the time. I will respond to some of what was said in a longer post shortly (I want to listen to the conversation one more time).
