On The Line: Danny Gold Discusses Chicago’s Mental Health Crisis – Vice News Published on Apr 13, 2015


Danny Gold joined ‘On the Line’ to discuss his new piece on America’s mental health care crisis, “Institutionalized: Mental Health Behind Bars” – http://bit.ly/1DHIqYj

America’s relationship with its mentally ill population continues to suffer as a result of inadequacies in the country’s mental health care system.

For the mentally ill in Chicago, the effects of this inadequacy are felt on a magnified scale, as budget cuts and a lack of community-based mental health resources have left these individuals with minimal support. More often than not, this means being repeatedly swept up into the criminal justice system for low-level, non-violent crimes

Danny Gold traveled to Chicago for VICE News, to speak with community members on Chicago’s south side, and get a first-hand look inside Cook County Jail.

Trouble in the Tunnel: Fallout in Gaza (Part 2) – Vice News Published on Feb 25, 2015


During the devastating 50-day war in Israel and Gaza this past summer, around 18,000 homes in Gaza were destroyed or severely damaged, leaving around 120,000 residents homeless.

Now, with trouble in neighboring Sinai and infighting between Palestinian factions, reconstruction efforts in the beleaguered Gaza Strip are moving slowly. With the UN warning of a growing humanitarian crisis for the people of Gaza, many fear that another armed conflict is imminent. Six months after the end of fighting, VICE News returns to the region to investigate the progress on reconstruction.

In part two, VICE News correspondent Danny Gold visits the Kerem Shalom crossing with Israel to see what goods are being allowed into the Gaza Strip, and spends time with a resident of Nahal Oz kibbutz, which was attacked by rockets and Hamas soldiers during last summer’s war.
