October 28th Summary

Irish Examiner- Some Drug Addicts Should Not Be Prosecuted. Kind of mimics the op-ed I respond to in my previous post, though with citing the results of a large Ireland based study.

Florida Times Union- Juveniles awaiting detention longer than law intends

Black Youth Project- National ‘Wear Orange” protest held in opposition of mass incarceration October 30th

Alaska Dispatch News- Conference in prisons aims to increase reentry success. Curious why data are not being collected, seems like a great opportunity for both dissemination of a likely successful practice, and who knows, maybe even QI work on the existing process.

Skewed Justice- Evaluating the role campaign financing in judicial campaigns and the influence of citizens united. Really insightful for those (like me) who were unaware of the significance campaign financing has come to play in judicial roles over the last decade or so. It seems to be to be often left out of the conversation on campaign finance reform more generally.
