Rehab, Not Jail, for Our Veterans

One week after Attorney General Eric Holder praised Veterans Treatment Courts during a visit to a program in Virginia, Buffalo Veterans Treatment Court Judge Robert Russell appeared on MSNBC to talk about why these courts for veterans are critically needed. Judge Russell talked about the invisible wounds of war affecting many of our servicemen and women and the need for our courts to connect them to treatment and benefits in order to help them become productive citizens.
