If it is good enough for high-ranking government officials and dignitaries to ride around in cars with bullet-proof glass, then it should be for our cops who put their lives on the line and are being tracked down and murdered like prey With this move, New York is sending the message that all lives matter including the lives of those who wear the blue uniform and who day-in, day-out put their lives on the live to protect ours.

    Jan 14, 2015 | Albany Times Union

While closely hewing to the familiar discovery-success-decline arc of so many celebrity lives - at least as rendered in written and TV biographies and backstage dramas on stage and film - "Jersey Boys" tells the tale of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons with economy, wit and emotion.

Figures obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press via a public records request show correction officers reported using force 4,074 times last year, including 406 incidents alone in September, the month after a scathing federal report that said Rikers Island guards too often resorted to force against teenage inmates.

    Recent events from Ferguson, Mo., to Staten Island, N.Y., might prompt an observer to infer that American cops are racist and that a bigoted white populace tolerates unnecessary lethal force against minorities.
