Op-Ed: Why Biden's strategy for preventing domestic terrorism could do more harm than good

Even as American cities are working to reduce the use of police in responding to mental health and social crises, the Biden administration is doubling down on an ineffective strategy that further entrenches law enforcement in these same spheres under the umbrella of violence prevention. Many of the behaviors and traits the center identifies as markers of potential violence — being socially alienated, depressed, having a “grievance,” for example — are both vague and common.

Letters to the editor for Saturday, June 19, 2021

Republican hypocrisy ridiculous I was truly shocked and dismayed by the events of Jan. 6. To hear Republicans say, let's give these rioters a pass; they were simply caught up in the moment. One even stated he saw no difference in Jan. 6 and a "normal" tourist tour of "our" Capitol.
