"The Redemption Project": Van Jones explores restorative justice on CNN
Van Jones premiered his series “The Redemption Project” about restorative justice on CNN tonight, major link here. Not pleasant.
The premier episode showed a man (white) in prison in California for life for impulsively stabbing a mom for money for a drug fix. He gets a letter from her daughter one day and has a meeting where he faces what came over him.
Later Van interviews a man who is out on probation and starting work as a counselor for other prisoners in Lancaster, CA (in the desert, near LA – I’ve driven past that prison a few times).
