I have a question for Professor Blackburn.
It's interesting that we have somebody before us who was a parole officer and who was on the Parole Board. We've had some comments about lack of experience on parole boards especially when there is a large change. I suspect the same would be for parole officers.
Can you step us through.... You started as a parole officer, so were young or inexperienced, although you came with experience. Your supervision came, I take it, from the Parole Board, which helped, guided and mentored you. Then, as a Parole Board member, I suspect you also were helping new parole officers gain experience.
Can you step me through that process a bit?
