In New York, hundreds of sick and dying imprisoned people navigate the compassionate release system every year, but very few make it out. Those who eventually die behind bars are supported and comforted in their final days by fellow incarcerated people at the hospice unit at Coxsackie Correctional Facility in Greene County. Natasha Haverty reports for Prison Time media project. Plus, continued coverage of the New York Against Mass Incarceration Rally, held in Albany, Mon., May 5. Hosted by Cory Fischer-Hoffman.
