Interview with Bernard Kerik, former NYPD Commissioner. His hard-hitting memoir has just come out: “From Jailer to Jailed: My Journey from Correction and Police Commissioner to Inmate #84888-054.” As the right-hand man for Mayor Giuliani during the 9/11 attacks, Kerik became a national hero, and was later nominated by President George W. Bush to head the Department of Homeland Security. But it wasn’t meant to be. Now, after having served almost four years in federal prison, Kerik’s memoir offers a heartbreaking and heartwarming plea for prison reform in America. A frank discussion of Kerik’s psychological journey, his time in solitary confinement, and his proposals for reform. With music and listener calls.
