TAL Raucci

steven raucci mug shot thumbnailThe This American Life episode about Steven Raucci re-aired this past weekend, which means it's available as a free download this week from TAL's site (it's only 99 cents otherwise). The entire ep -- "Petty Tyrant" -- is about Raucci, described as "a virtuoso tyrant and bully, a man who made himself feared and untouchable, in a place where no one thought to look for a tyrant." (Spoiler: that place was the Schenectady school district.) Raucci's currently serving 23 years to life.
