November 18th Summary

PEW Charitable Trusts- Most States Cut Imprisonment and Crime

Next City- Can Europe offer the US a model for prison reform?– The large difference between European nations and US prison policies probably comes as a surprise to no one, but! Still interesting to see the differences contrasted.

The Marshall Project- Started by a former New York Times columnist of 30 years, aspiring to provide non-partisan coverage of the justice system. Could be interesting to watch what sort of stories are produced.

Main Justice- Federal Prison Reform is a Top Justice Department Priority– Optimism forever vigilant, not sure what sort of pass-through investments DOJ makes however, nor have I read a review of their support for sentencing reforms in practice.
