Bob Spano, Carl Olson, and Steve Smith – How Bad Sacramento Policy is Causing Victims’ Families to Relive Traumatic Memories

On this week’s episode, we talk with Bob Spano and Carl Olson, whose beloved family members were tragically murdered decades ago, and who have recently been forced to relive these traumatic memories when the individuals who murdered their family members were granted parole.  PRI senior fellow Steve Smith discusses how misguided policy changes and executive actions are contributing to the state’s broken parole system, and what lawmakers and Gov. Newsom should do to fix the problem.
