Thoughts About Us ! I read an interesting post from Martha Hunter about a few grown men riding on the subway bragging about their incarceration experiences. Unfortunately this is not that unusual as many people claim and hold on to their experiences regarding street and thug life. So unfortunate that those guys and so many others have little to remember or share that would be considered positive experiences. This brings me back to over 12 years ago when I sadly was held in a jail cell overnight on a false charge and experienced the communications between 3 younger men on their way to Rikers Island, which is a NYC holding jail with thousands on inmates awaiting sentencing or court cases before in many cases being turned over to New York State Corrections for incarceration at a upstate prison facility. The young men were actually bragging and drooling over what they would do when the bus took them to Rikers. One said he would go straight to the gym to work out.

New York City mayor Bill De Blasio wants to pledge $130 million over four years to overhaul how the city deals with mentally ill and drug-addicted suspects, hoping to divert more to treatment instead of New York’s troubled Rikers Island jail complex. De Blasio’s plans, to be announced Tuesday, are based on the recommendations of a task force he appointed following a series of reports by The Associated Press detailing problems at Rikers, including the deaths of two inmates suffering from serious mental illness. The reforms are aimed largely at inmates with mental health and substance abuse problems who repeatedly end up in jail on minor offenses because there is nowhere else for them to go. The changes, which do not require city council approval, include offering stepped-up training for police to identify such suspects, using drop-off treatment centers for low-level offenders, and allowing more leeway for judges to order supervised release and treatment instead of jail. They draw on reforms already tri ...
The lawyer for the accused "subway shover" says his client, Kevin Darden," a human being, he is not a monster."

The prosecution has already concluded that Darden, "Acted without provocation," pushing 61-year old Wai Kuen Kwok onto the tracks at a Bronx subway station where Kwok was crushed by a D-train. Darden who was released from Rikers Island last Friday has been arrested 50-times since 1993 on such charges as attempted arson, assault and a knife-point robbery.
