A second chance for young offenders
Friday, July 18, 2014
Heard Elsewhere:
America’s experiment with harsh punishment for nonviolent offenders has proved to be self-defeating. Rather than lessening crime, these policies promote recidivism when nonviolent offenders are unable to find employment, fall into poverty and return to crime.

Thursday, July 17, 2014
other voices:
It may be a longer, hotter summer for the gun freaks than they have had in some time, mainly the National Rifle Association, which approaches every election with a strategy to oppose everything and dole out money only to candidates who pledge allegiance to the industry’s policy of no firearms restrictions, period.
