DURHAM, N.C. — Pledges to reform long-standing ills of the criminal justice system in the wake of recent high-profile homicides continued Tuesday, with city and county leaders resolving to make a dent in Durham County's 50,000 unserved arrest warrants.
"We've still been engaged in dynamic inaction on this issue," council member Eugene Brown, who has tried for years to bring attention to the problem, said Tuesday at a joint meeting of city and county elected officials.
