Lots of ideas for Prez Obama for final criminal justice reform push

The fine folks at The Marshall Project got a lot of other fine folks to share their views here on what Prez Obama might usefully do in the criminal justice reform area as his time in the Oval Office winds down.  The piece is headlined "Obama’s Final 500 Days: People from across the political spectrum suggest criminal justice reforms the president should enact during his remaining time in office." There is a lot of food for thought (for both readers and Prez Obama) in the piece, and here are some of the headings used by the Marshall Project marking some themes:  

Prosecute the Prosecutors

Have Truly Smarter Sentencing

Release More Prisoners

Don’t Forget the Aftermath

Rethink Solitary

Create a Few Commissions

I Loved the Marshall Projects solicited suggestions, however creating a few more commissions will no doubt slow things down by eons.
