'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Friday, March 09, 2012 - 10:51 AM

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

Senator Michael Gianaris on why any deal on redistricting that doesn’t include a veto isn’t enough.

Colleen Taggarty, the Superintendent of the Olean City Schools says the question is no longer “where do we cut” it’s become “how do we become insolvent”?

And data driven policing is in the news again today and not in a good way: Why do we continue to measure the wrong things? That’s what Eli Silverman and John Eterno ask in their new book “The Crime Numbers Game: Management by Manipulation” published by CRC Press, one installment in a series of texts exploring advances in Police Theory & Practice. Both Silverman and Eterno have unique experience with CompState, NYPD’s computerized crime tracking system. They will join me on today’s show.
