Lots of interesting reading 'round the blogsphere

Returning from a day off-line, I see a number of very interesting (and long) posts on a broad range of sentencing and corrections issues around the blogsphere.  I would like to substantively engage with all the items noted below, but limited time an energy means I only have a chance to provide links and brief references.  So here goes:

  • Grits for Breakfast has here another in its great series of posts on the incarceration crisis in Texas, with the focus now on private prisons.

  • The ASC Blog has here a fascinating post from Professor Jonathan Simon dynamically discussing the intersection of mass incarceration, race, and democracy.

  • INCourts here and here discusses the developing aftermath in Indiana from the state's big Blakely decision in Smylie (basics here, commentary here and here).
