The girl's mother, Stacey Elkins, alerted police to the incident on Monday after showing them screen grabs taken from the video.
She said her daughter went out to a store in Chicago's Lawndale neighborhood on Sunday afternoon but failed to return home.
Today, there are ten jails in total on Rikers, vast parking lots, infirmaries, a power plant, and a barge to combat overcrowding — a persistent difficulty in a facility that holds, on average, more than 9,700 prisoners and sometimes has to squeeze in more than 15,000. I learned more once Victor’s mom got us a lawyer and we started investigating. Eventually, we got the autopsy, which showed he’d had a seizure and ulcers. Guys requested computer-programming-language books. There’s a lot of interest in John Grisham–like novels. There were certain books that it was just generally understood might create problems with the guards, and we wouldn’t bring them, like In solitary, there would be these big bulkhead doors and we’d lean down and they’d push their books out of a slot and we’d try to have a conversation. Our emergency-response policy was written in the ’90s and hasn’t changed much.
Adults and adolescents who are sentenced to less than a year’s time in New York City serve out their punishment on the island. It was through the autopsy that I found out what happened. But they couldn’t look through the cart, so a guy would say, “Hey, do you have a copy of James Joyce’s Ulysses?

About 40 people viewed the attack on Facebook while it was happening on Sunday but none of them reported it to police, according to department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.Most Americans know this story because Attucks is one of only a handful of black individuals from the colonial period that the public can readily recall.A good Samaritan who offered to lend two men short on cash a couple bucks to cover their meal at a Brooklyn eatery ended up beaten and robbed for trying to help, cops say.The Marshall Project is a nonprofit news organization covering America’s criminal-justice system. There was a culture of collecting books in a series — they’d talk about them. They call it ‘popping the cell.’ Once the guard opens your cell, all you gotta do is stick some tissue in the mechanism.An extended interview with Commissioner Joseph Ponte is available on s long as the City of New York has owned Rikers Island, since the 1880s, it has been a place for the unwanted. Not long afterward, the island — conveniently but remotely located in the East River between the Bronx and Queens, not 300 feet from where La Guardia’s runways now sit — was converted to a partial landfill, full of horse manure and garbage. We had a big call for urban lit, so books geared toward people of color, talking about neighborhoods they’d grown up in. And it was mostly young black guys who took these books, who had not finished high school or just finished. It reads on their board as closed, but you can shake it and open it up on your own from that moment on.” Rikers has gotten a lot of attention in the year since you arrived, not much of it very flattering.
