Tuesday's Editorial Roundup
June 24th, 2008

The New York Times says that the police department should put strict conditions how Taser guns are used in the city.

The Daily News believes the dramatic increases in student test scores are legitimate. “[P]lenty of data document that children in the five boroughs have made healthy and sustained – even historic – progress compared with peers statewide,” the Daily News writes.

The New York Post praises the U.S. Supreme Court for declining to hear the latest in a series of legal challenges to the Atlantic Yards Project. “The sooner Ratner and Co. gets this project done, the better for Brooklyn – and all New York,” the Post writes.

And the New York Sun bemoans Albany’s refusal to cap property taxes – and says the state capital could be a better place without Republican Majority Leader Joseph Bruno.
