Radley's work paying off: I think we've all followed, more or less, Radley Balko's reporting and digging on the Cory Maye case in Mississippi, one of the first cases he reported on in his series about police tactics and SWAT team abuses. He's devoted a lot of time to publicizing and recruiting assistance on the case.

It looks like some real positive results are starting to come from all the work. He's been down in Miss., actually commuting from New Orleans, for Maye's hearings and he reports that there will at least be a new sentencing hearing and that Maye has been taken off death row. That's good news, and The Agitator is to be commended for his work.
