May 21, 2011 - "I think about all those things I did throughout the years that I'm not proud of today," stated Major Neil Franklin, a retired Police Officer, and Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Drug Prohibition (LEAP). Franklin got a little choked up when reflecting on the negative results fighting the Drug War had on communities of color.
Franklin was a panelist at an event at the historic riverside church in Harlem, put on by the Riverside Church Prison Ministry and The Campaign to End The New Jim Crow. The event featured keynote speaker, Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow, Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.
