CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City, the chairman of the bishops’ Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, said that “we need serious improvements throughout the entire justice and prison system that protect society while providing honest rehabilitation and the potential for redemption, even for those who will spend the rest of their lives behind bars.
