Sean Bell's Second Slaying

Mumia Abu-Jamal | The defense utilized the "bad company" argument: that Bell was shot and killed because he was among "the wrong crowd."

SWANK, SWOP-NYC, PONY, & the Desiree Alliance | We are in the midst of a Pink Scare, in which oppressive laws and social stigma partner to generate hysteria around what, for us, can prove to be simply a decent way to make a living. The circumstances surrounding Ms. Palfrey’s death suggest that Americans reconsider the current state and federal policies that govern sex work, as well as the stigmatization and sensational treatment of those who participate in this industry. more...  1 Comments

MOVE 9 PAROLE: Young Teen Gets Jaded By Justice System

Linn Washington Jr. | Last week’s Parole Board decision involving that MOVE trio (who’ve served time longer than the average third-degree murder case) underscores the pollution of politics in the justice system....The reason why so many people feel racism infects law, from police to judges to prisons, results from so many being jerked by the justice system so often. more...  1 Comments
