Detroit News and Free Press looks at Michigan's Parole Board, which releases violent criminals from prison after serving just a fraction of their sentences; profiles the case of a paroled man who killed an eighth-grade girl after his release--he was termed a "reasonable risk" by the state board; finds prison overcrowding contributes to early parole, and the parole board frequently violates state laws and regulations by releasing inmates without jobs or education plans, July 18, 1992.
