Always controversial, the role of parole boards has again been called into question in recent years, and swift policy changes have followed. In this episode, we will examine the changing face of parole in Massachusetts and Connecticut and look at a few of the countless lives touched by these gatekeepers of justice: one man's controversial journey through the Massachusetts' department of corrections and another in Connecticut whose future will be decided with help from a new risk assessment tool. Parole boards decide who is ready to leave prison and who is still a threat to society. We look at the lives affected by these gatekeepers of justice.
