DeMorning Links: Full circle on S Street

A new report from the Council for Court Excellence finds that nearly half of ex-inmates it surveyed are unemployed. In today’s Post, Ruben Castaneda profiles one who’s trying to keep on the straight and narrow. Harold “P-Nut” Hill, 43, grew up in Shaw, on and around S Street Nw, where he got caught up in drug dealing and, in 1987, he shot a man to death. After two stints in prison, he’s working an honest job — directing traffic at a construction site at 7th and S streets.
