S1 Update: A First Look at the Laurie List

1/18/2022
As you might remember, The List was all about secret lists of police officers. Officers who engaged in misconduct that could potentially be used to undermine their testimony in a trial. In The List, we talked why these lists were created in the first place, why some cops hate these lists, and why a lot of people think they shouldn’t be secret. We focused largely on the story of New Hampshire’s version of this kind of list, what’s known around here as the Laurie List. And we asked: what...

Death Resulting E3: A Normal Member of Society

Death resulting laws seek to punish a single person — the drug dealer — for an overdose death. But the laws all but ignore what pushed that dealer into this terrible position in the first place.

And we examine a broader definition of “guilt” to find a system that failed Josh at every step of the way. Document is a production of New Hampshire...

Death Resulting E2: Launching A War

12/15/2021
In 1986, racist fears and the death of a basketball star prompt Congress to lay down the legal foundation for the War on Drugs. Today most Americans see that war as a failure. But buried deep in that 35-year-old law was the death resulting law — a penalty little used until the opioid epidemic, and now disproportionately impacting people of color.
