S5 Ep7: Breathin': The Eddy Zheng Story

Video duration: 59:42Expires: 08/22/17Video has closed captioning.

Eddy Zheng came to America with his family when he was 12 years old. Then at the age of 16, he committed a horrible crime: home invasion and kidnapping. Year after year he hoped for parole, and after almost 20 years in prison, Zheng was released, a model prisoner who wanted to become a community leader. But his victims insisted he should still be deported.
