More Trouble at Rikers Island

Key Rikers Island Official Resigns Because Rikers Island Is Terrible

William Clemons, the highest-ranking uniformed officer of New York City's Correction Department, will resign, it was announced today, because—well, because Rikers Island is a really, truly, unimaginably awful place.

Clemons' "retirement" comes after reports that violence regularly went unreported in the jail's juvenile facility, that guards brutally beat mentally ill inmates, that violence among guards often goes unpunished, and that healthcare in the jail ranges from "substandard" to "nonexistent."
