Should We Rename It "Selma Francisco"?

Should We Rename It "Selma Francisco"? California Progress Report, April 13, 2012

Who has the right to "stand your ground"?
Florida teenager Trayvon Martin had been dead for a month and the national furor over his shooting by vigilante George Zimmerman was into its third week before anyone, to my knowledge, asked that fundamental question.  Law enforcement officials, experts, and commentators across the spectrum had assumed that the only issue was whether Zimmerman was entitled to use Florida's "stand your ground" law to justify shooting Martin. MSNBC commentator Melissa Harris Perry finally declared what the…
The "Zimmerman Dilemma": How afraid should we be of young black men?
While commentators led by no less than President Obama  have blamed violent crime on "the entire generation of young men in our society" and have warned us to fear young black men in particular, those Americans more thoughtful than politicians running for office, exploitative interest groups, sensationalist reporters, and racist fear-mongers know that "entire generations" don't commit violence; individuals do.

Two cheers for new Human Rights Watch report, "Old Behind Bars'
At John Jay University's recent criminal justice conference, I was given a report issued last month by Human Rights Watch on a topic of great interest, "Old Behind Bars ." My enthusiasm for HRW's documented concerns about the rapid aging of America's prison population diminished considerably as its authors indulged increasingly nasty comments about young people that detracted from its larger message.
