The Rikers Island saga continues

I’ve written about the situation at the Rikers Island jail complex a few times in this newsletter, and not because I like to. In fact, I hate having to continuously parse through federal monitor and Board of Correction reports about health emergencies, mismanagement, and deaths as the bodies keep piling up, and I wish I didn’t have to keep writing about it. Yet it’s precisely because of that that we can’t look away.
