December 5th Summary

Juvenile Justice Information Exchange- Op-ed: Too Many Obstacles for Californians Looking to Seal Juvenile Records– References a survey of some interest.

The Marshall Project- Will Millennial Embrace Prison Reform? Two Harvard guys aim to find out.- Hey hear’s hoping something comes from this, it’s a very laudable goal.

The Marshall Project- The Misleading Math of ‘Recidivism’– Good read for a better understanding of the complexities of generating recidivism rates, and the role of parole violations in this. Even for those with a background in calculating or analyzing these rates, provides some background on the use of these rates in popular media, which could be of interest to note.

The Dissenter- UN Anti-Torture Watchdog Dismayed at US Failure to Provide Redress for Chicago Police Torture Survivors– I really don’t know enough about the accusations of torture in question to have a very useful opinion here, but! Interesting read nonetheless.
