Patrick Administration to Expand C.O.R.I. (Criminal Checks) to Thousands, Despite Pro-Reform Stance

Stop legitimizing human rights abusers!

Would Massachusetts DOC Commissioner Harold Clarke know a human rights violation if he saw one? We are convinced not. WHY? Because he has been an employee of “Corrections” for over 35 years. Clarke rose through the ranks to become Secretary of the Nebraska DOC, a position he held for 14 years before moving to Washington State DOC from 2005 to 2007. At Gov. Deval Patrick’s invitation he now heads up Massachusetts DOC. Award winner and former Washington State prisoner Paul Wright’s publication, Prison Legal News has, since 2000, published several critical articles in which Clarke and the Nebraska DOC have been the subject.
