DARRELL CANNON, WHO SPENT 24 YEARS IN PRISON FOR A CRIME HE DID NOT COMMIT, TALKS ABOUT ELECTRONIC MONITORING.

Tortured by Chicago Police detective Jon Burge into confessing to a crime he didn’t commit, Darrell Cannon spent 24 years in prison, nine of them in solitary confinement at Tamm supermax. When his charges were finally dropped after  years of launching appeals, authorities released Cannon on an electronic monitor, as if two decades wrongfully incarcerated were not enough punishment. I interviewed him this morning about his experience and views on monitoring and have posted the video here.
