MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Protesters gathered outside the Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles Tuesday demanding reform to the state’s system.
The protesters call themselves “FAM,” short for the Free Alabama Movement. Their push for change includes a 12-point plan that calls for such things as clarity on parole criteria, waiver of fees, the removal of the bureau’s leader, Judge Charlie Graddick, and the abolishment of the current bureau.
