Surveying the reconfigured talk show landscape, I became annoyed that everybody gets to do a monologue but me. After all, I have hilarious thoughts as...
A cornerstone of the school-to-prison pipeline has been overly punitive school discipline codes, with disciplinary action applied disproportionately to people of color.
You've spoken against the humiliating practice of racial profiling many times since then. So why does your administration continue to discriminate against Americans because of the color of their skin or the way they dress?
While Dunn is unlikely to ever experience life again as a free man, neither Martin nor Davis will experience life at all beyond their 17th year of existence simply because someone else decided that they were justified in using their gun to 'defend' themselves.
Criminologists have been debating the reasons why violent crime continues to decrease both nationally and within New York City, but nobody's come up with a definitive answer as of yet.
Nobody standing here today is pretending this is Mission Accomplished. The problem hasn't been solved. The reality is tomorrow, a kid will be humiliated on his way home from school or someone on their way to the store will get stopped and frisked for no reason.
Recently, I've been keeping a whitemaninmypocket. It's for protection of course,...

New York's new mayor made clear from the beginning that he would put an end to NYPD's aggressive "stop and frisk" policies. So, what does he do? He turns around and appoints a police commissioner who, under Rudy Giuliani, ushered in that very same stop and frisk mentality.
Bill Bratton's main goal should be to improve community relations. Given Bratton's track record, I believe New Yorkers can look forward to a continuation of historically low crime, but as important, an improvement in police relations with communities within the five boroughs.
Though they may run counter to conventional wisdom, these 10 research-backed policy ideas could reduce crime in the United States. Here's how -- and why.
How is it that our land, supposedly the beacon of freedom and democracy for the rest of the world, puts so many of its own people into prison? And why has the number climbed so drastically since 1980?
