South Bronx Residents Oppose Planned Prison

David Ferris | In a town hall meeting that opened with community leaders pledging opposition to the planned construction of a new correctional facility in the South Bronx and ended with boisterous, passionate chants of “No more jails!,” local residents and activists unequivocally expressed their opposition to the planned prison to New York City Department of Correction Commissioner Martin Horn, who insisted that a new jail in the Bronx was needed to replace aging facilities on Rikers Island. The meeting, organized by Community in Unity, a coalition of fifteen Bronx community organizations, was called to demand transparency and accountability in the planning process and to offer alternatives to the proposed 2,000-bed facility, which has raised the ire of some members of the Hunts Point community, who have criticized the city for excluding them from the planning and question the value of building yet another jail. more...  0 Comments
