David Crowe talks with Desmond Meade about restoring the right of felons in Florida who have completed their sentence (including probation) to vote. But this is not the only right they lose. Desmond served time in his youth for drug and robbery offences, but even after he got his life together, and got a law degree, he cannot practice in the State of Florida. The discussion covers the specifics in Florida, as well as the general situation in the United States where the justice system discourages reintegration into society.
