Bill de Blasio

On Friday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio voiced support in closing Rikers Island, a jail marred with a lengthy, contentious history.

Police authorities allow the cop who fatally shot unarmed Black teen to resign after a disciplinary commission found him guilty.

Glenn Martin, a former Rikers inmate and advocate for criminal justice reform, has continually made the effort to have Rikers Island closed.

A review of police payroll records reveals that the cop who choked Eric Garners has received big raises. He's been on desk duty for two years, as a federal civil rights investigation moves forward.

Erica Garner's heat comes on the heels of De Blasio's refusal to release the disciplinary records of Officer Daniel Pantaleo, the cop who wrestled Erica's father Eric Garner to the ground with a chokehold, subsequently killing him in July 2014.

NYC police commissioner talks about ending his tenure. He has no plans to continue past the mayor's first term in office.

Just days after former President Bill Clinton used his White privilege to lecture Black Lives Matter protesters, Hillary Clinton engaged in her own faux pas regarding, well, African-Americans.
