The Lessons Tulia Teaches

is the title of an article in the Dec. 19 issue of Newsweek by Ellis Cose. NAACP Legal Defense Fund attorney Vanita Gupta expresses my own view, that "what happened in Tulia happens every day."

"That is not a comforting thought," writes Cose, "but until the war on drugs takes a radical new direction, it will remain an unpleasant reality."

See Grits' past Tulia coverage. UPDATE: A commenter points to this interview with Nate Blakeslee about the Tulia case in The American Prospect.

Grits,

A short but worthwhile read is at the American Prospect.

Sarah Shemkus' article entitled "Justice, Texas Style"
says Tulia is being heard about outside of Texas.
