Lots worth reading around the blogosphere (especially on the costs of mass incarceration)
Lots of my favorite criminal law blogs have lots of notable new posts covering sentencing issues, especially California Corrections Crisis, Grits for Breakfast, the Prison Law Blog, and Think Outside the Cage. And thanks to some of the postings there, I noticed there two notable new reports on the econmic costs of modern mass incarceration:
From the Pew Center on the States: "Right-sizing prisons: Business leaders make the case for corrections reform."
From the National Council on Crime and Delinquency: "Special Report: The Extravagance of Imprisonment Revisited"

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Lots worth reading around the blogosphere (especially on the costs of mass incarceration):
All these criminal lovers live in neighborhoods with lower crime rates than Japan or Switzerland. In those areas, the death penalty is carried out at the scene. No robber makes it out alive. Everyone knows that, and criminals skip over those areas. If you are a black billionaire record producer, the police still stops you every few blocks to find out what you doing in your own residential neighborhood.
