    Jan 26, 2015 | The Village Voice

    A landmark 2009 reform of New York's drug laws seems to be working as more offenders are being diverted to treatment programs rather than languishing behind bars.

    Jan 20, 2015 | The Village Voice

    Fringe, dust, rust, rope, leather , and ample helpings of red, white, and blue: All of these Americana adjectives and artifacts conjure a specific, classic image when the conversation loops around a rodeo.

    A Brooklyn community group that formed in opposition to a massive proposed parole center in Gowanus has achieved a major victory as the state has agreed to scale back plans for the facility, which had been intended to serve 6,000 ex-criminals per month. The New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision announced on January 14 that it had settled a lawsuit filed in November 2014 by Gowanus United - a collective of nearby residents and business owners who opposed the facility - that accused the state of sidestepping city zoning laws to build the center and failing to consult the community before submitting plans.

    Jan 15, 2015 | The Village Voice

    While Mayor Bill de Blasio has spent much of the last several weeks trying to patch over the rift between his office and the NYPD rank and file , a former police captain is launching a one-man crusade against an administration that he says remains hostile to police.
