Fault Line

Kevin (not his real name) is a likable guy who lives with his wife in New Jersey. And he's on probation after serving time in a federal prison for committing a disturbing crime.

The Hospital Always Wins

Back in 2004, Laura Starecheski visited a mental hospital in Queens, N.Y. called Creedmoor, where she met a patient named Issa Ibrahim.

Leaving a Mark

Emily Hsiao reads a Craigslist post about a man who wants his swastika tattoo covered up. And then she goes to meet him.

My Way or the FBI Way

A year ago, a swat team broke down the door of a home in downtown St. Paul and found eight Molotov cocktails inside.
