Masked Marauder Strikes Again!

Be sure to read today’s NYT editorial “Juvenile Detention Trap,” on New York City’s struggle to revamp its JJ system. A taste:

Thanks to innovative policies, New York City has begun to reduce the number of low-level young offenders who are sent to state-run detention facilities. Many are now diverted to community-based programs where they can receive mental health and counseling services. That’s a good thing, since more than 80 percent of young men who are sentenced to detention facilities end up arrested again within three years.

Reveal yourself, masked marauder — we have much to discuss! (Oh, and while I’m at it, what’s up with the Bill Kristol hire? I mean, seriously…)
