Don't Ask Don't Tell Don't Talk Don't Help

In the NY Times today, Mike Winerip writes how Jeff Kaufman got sent to the rubber room for the unspeakable crime of trying to help his students. Kaufman works at Rikers, and was charged with "undue familiarity," though nothing generally regarded improper behavior was alleged, and no one seems to doubt his good intentions.

In addition to being a teacher, Kaufman is an ex-police officer, and a lawyer for the indigent. He's also heavily involved with ICE-UFT, where his writing can often be found.
