Welcome to the blogosphere the "Prison Law Blog"

A law and history student at Stanford sent me this note about Prison Law Blog, a new blog that she has started:

I remember reading a post on your blog a while back in which you encouraged more bloggers to start narrowly focused criminal justice related blogs, and I have decided to focus on jail and prison reform efforts (e.g., legislation, conditions of confinement lawsuits, prisoners rights campaigns, etc.).  Although there are now many very useful and well-done criminal justice related blogs already out there, I am hoping that this is a specific area where more focused blogging might be of interest.

For now the posts are mostly links (with some commentary), but in the future I am hoping to add more original content including updates on prison reform litigation and legislation around the country, and Q & A features with lawyers who work in this field.

Huzzah and welcome!

What if this student wanted to be really different and to be immediately noticed?

Start a viewpoint neutral blog. Do not select news item that support only a left wing extremist, government make work, loose the prisoners so they may generate massive harms requiring massive government programs ideology.

I know this a difficult intellectual challenge, especially for a fresh victim of lawyer cult indoctrination.

For example, when a coddled prisoner is released prematurely and pillages and plunders, post that news item, right along with the standard, prisoners are victims lawyer propaganda.

Do it because it is very hard, nearly impossible for the lawyer to go against interest, and to support incapacitation as the sole mature remedy in the criminal law.
