Photo of the Day

FILE - In this March 12, 2014, file photo, a photograph of Jerome Murdough is held by his mother Alma Murdough left, and sister Cheryl Warner in the Queens borough of New York. The homeless former Marine, who died because of an over-heated Rikers Island jail cell, may never have been incarcerated there if he had not been required to pay bail, which he could not raise. Officials say they’re eliminating cash bail for thousands of New Yorkers accused of misdemeanor and non-violent felonies in an effort to divert them from the Rikers Island jail complex. An $18 million plan to be unveiled Wednesday, July 8, will allow judges to instead require that people accused of certain crimes be monitored while they wait for their trial.
