  • Mass. and Cass cleanup has mixed success, as special court faces renewed criticism

    Boston Globe - 11/08/2021

    Leo Beletsky, professor of law and health sciences at Northeastern University, sees a disconnect between “how the court was sold to policymakers and the public and what is actually happening.”

    “It’s a way of cosmetically improving the situation while also churning very vulnerable people through a very harmful system,” Beletsky said. The sessions seemed to be “catching vulnerable people on technicalities and then using that as a hook to pipe them into the system, kind of like a vacuum for people who are quote, unquote, undesirable or unseemly.”
