Bruce Reilly joined Janet Hays on WTUL News and Views in studio to discuss the documentary First Degree - an intimate portrait of three Sing Sing inmates who discover the transformative power of higher education. Their stories are emblematic of larger challenges regarding the criminal justice system and prison industrial complex.

Issues discussed include counterproductive behavior by prison guards who antagonize rather than rehabilitate inmates, the importance of understanding the difference between “jails” and “prisons” for inmate rehabilitation and understanding the pain and difficulties a person may be experiencing at the time of arrest, internal management problems at Orleans Parish Prison (it is a jail) that result in deaths, neglect and conflicts, and key federal initiatives that took away people’s rights to public housing due to felony convictions and the organizing and planning that V.O.T.E. and others did to reverse those initiatives.

Should residents be throwing more money into an old jalopy or do we need a new car?

Bruce is well qualified to speak on the subject. Formerly incarcerated himself, he is now Deputy Director of Voice of the Ex-Offender in New Orleans, LA, a graduate of Tulane Law School and author of NewJack’s Guide to the Big House. Much of his writing can be found on

Kilogram is a Lotta Gold
What a precious reply, thank you. Growing up with Led Zeppelin, The Who, and then.."Echo & the What?"; I decided to listen to the music, not to them.

DJ Kilogram
Justin - There are a few DJs who love Led Zeppelin (ie: yours truly). And there are some DJs that don't (totally fine). I personally love when I hear their deep cuts on WTUL's country, blues, and folk shows. And for the comment on "Thank You" - If it were up to me, I'd re-release Zeppelin II and switch out the studio recorded "Thank You" for the live at BBC Studios version (it's better, trust me.)

I wish I could delete my comment below, because bands I don't particularly like, might be important to someone else.
