Today’s coverage In the Boston Herald:
Critics of the legislation, including the ACLU, Families Against Mandatory Minimums, Ex-Prisoners and Prisoners Organizing for Community Advancement, the NAACP and the Massachusetts Black and Latino Legislative Caucus, distributed a newspaper this week that urged voters to “Say No to ‘3 Strikes’ Law in Massachusetts.” The 12-page publication featured commentary from lawmakers and activists rejecting the proposal.
