Aviram begins by describing how parole works in California. She explains why she decided to study the parole hearings of Charles Manson and the members of the Manson Family. She reflects on the Manson family's experience with the parole board. And she argues that it should help us see why we need to reform the parole process. Aviram is on Twitter at @aviramh.
