Lots more notable new reporting and commentary from The Marshall Project
Regular readers surely recall prior times I have flagged the always terrific Marshall Project for producing many great pieces that should be must-reads for sentencing fans. As I have said before, I rarely have the time or ability to give blog attention to all of the great work done there. But I could not resist another shout-out post upon seeing in recent days a bunch of pieces with original reporting and commentary that all struck me as particularly blog-worthy (with the last three connected):
"How Conservatives Learned to Love Free Lawyers for the Poor: By reframing the issue around the evils of big government, Republicans are notching victories that have eluded more liberal legislatures."

You are a Harvard grad if I am not mistaken Doug B. What are your thoughts on the situation at your alma mater?

Just another pro-criminal, vicious predator advocacy group. This hateful scum hates our country and crime victims.

Claudio: I think you are brilliant. Thank you for leading me to the solution to our debate, the Italian Death Penalty. Final. Immediate. Most of all, really cheap, at no additional government expense.
