First aired: December 16, 2015.
On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre we’ll take a look at the city’s penal system. First we’ll talk about the effort to end the trying of minors as adults and why some New York lawmakers are reluctant to pass a law in that regard. Then we’ll learn about the recent legislation that ended the practice of asking about someone’s criminal history on a job application form. Advocates say that it will open up opportunities for thousands of New Yorkers.
