Is Cushman being thrown under the bus?

I find perplexing the arrest of Charles Cushman (former Camden city attorney) for allegedly breaching his duties by "intentionally dismissing and/or Nolle Prossing criminal charges under the condition that a donation be made by the defense to the Camden City Drug Fund." If he is found guilty, there is no way I can condone such activity. However, I feel some amount of empathy toward Mr. Cushman.

The recreation center/YMCA vote

I wrote my first letter on this subject in April 2011, my second in July 2011 and subsequently addressed the city council on the subject. I see little has changed except that the council has resolved to continue the project while refusing to resolve legitimate concerns about the legal, economic and potential negative community impact of the proposal.

Having grown up in a city with a Y to which my family belonged, I know that a Y can be a place to enhance the quality of life for citizens of all ages.
