At the end of this month, October 2015, the Justice Department will release some 6,000 inmates from federal prisons as part of new sentencing guidelines for drug crimes.

We will discuss in our show the potential effects of this action, and whether it goes far enough, with: Tara Huffman, Director of the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Program for OSI-Baltimore; Sara Love, Public Policy Director of the ACLU of Maryland; and Dominque Stevenson, Program Director for the American Friends Service Committee and co-author with Eddie Conway of Marshall Law: The Life and Times of a Baltimore Black Panther.
