Erin Thompson | More than a year after Sean Bell was killed by a barrage of police bullets on the night before his wedding, the chance for justice in his case remain uncertain. After a 10-minute hearing on Jan. 25, State Supreme Court Judge Arthur Cooperman agreed to a request by the three police officers indicted in Bell’s shooting to hold a bench trial in their case, sparing them from having to face a jury trial. The decision came just two days after an appeals court turned down a request by defense lawyers to move the trial outside of New York City. more... 1 Comments

Ann M. Schneider | Firebrand Margarita Lopez faced off with Rosie Mendez, current councilwoman for the Lower East Side on January 23rd when Mendez held a City Council hearing on the eviction practices of the New York City Housing Authority, on whose Board Lopez now sits.

Joseph A. Bello | If Mayor Bloomberg (or any other elected official) really cared for veterans as they say they do then why do we (as a community) have to continue to fight tooth and nail just to get anything accomplished? Why doesn't the Mayor and/or Council Speaker meet with us in true partnership, discuss the issues and problems and find honest and open ways to address them instead of black-listing people, saying nothing, forcing it on the community and then saying they support veterans? more... 0 Comments

Mark Dunlea | On Tuesday, Governor Spitzer will unveil his budget proposals. The state budget is the primary policy document for lawmakers, determining how New York invests it resources to meet our needs. If he was alive today, Dr. King would speak out against the failure to once again raise welfare benefits after 18 years of inaction. While he might be heartened by some of the efforts to improve health care, he would be concerned that the Governor still believes it will be a long road to universal health care. “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane,” Dr. King wrote. And he would be very upset that our state spends more money to incarcerate its citizens, overwhelmingly people of color, than we do to provide a college education to our youth. more... 0 Comments
