CT: Families of victims outraged after state commutes 44 murder sentences

Source: Fox News

“Families of Connecticut crime victims are outraged after 44 murderers had their sentences commuted, accusing the Board of Pardons and Paroles of amending its policy to favor the state’s most violent criminals. Critics of the commutation surge have argued the spike in sentence reduction ‘re-victimizes’ families who chose to accept plea bargains in order to avoid the emotional and mental toll of a lengthy trial.” [editor’s note: For some reason, Fox “News” always feels the need to lead with “someone is outraged” — and then use that to promote one of their opinion shows interviewing someone who’s “outraged” — instead of focusing on the actual story – TLK] (03/13/23)
