Some Sunday sentencing headlines

Here is just a sample of some of the sentencing stories making headlines this morning:

  • From the Minneapolis Star Tribune here, "Should society give up on its worst criminals?"
  • From the San Francisco Chronicle here, "With lethal injection halted, all eyes on governor"
  • From the San Jose Mercury News here, "Time to fix overcrowding"
  • From the St. Petersburg Times here, "Does separation equal suffering? Some state inmates spend years in solitary; Critics say that is cruel and unusual"

UPDATE:  ODPI has lots of links here and here to other articles about all the lethal injection happenings.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Some Sunday sentencing headlines:


In "Time to fix overcrowding" the article states victims' rights representatives will be on the sentencing commission. All well and good, provided they are not either of the prison guard union's victims' rights activist groups. There would be more than a slight conflict of interest in that.
