Some post-election criminal justice commentary from various sources a week later

It is a week after a consequential election, and in some places votes are still being counted. In addition, folks are still doing accountings of what the election (and its aftermath) meant and means for criminal justice reform efforts. Here is a sampling of pieces I have seen on this front from a variety of sources and authors:

From The Brennan Center, "The Big Winners in DA Races: Women and Black Candidates"

From The Brennan Center, "What Does Sessions' Departure Mean for Criminal Justice?"

From The Crime Report, "Post-Midterms Forecast for Justice Reform: Cloudy, But Encouraging"

From The Crime Report, "Are Americans Finally Turning Away From ‘Tough-on-Crime’ Era?"

From The Fix, "Drug Policy and Criminal Justice Reform at the 2018 Midterm Elections"

From The Hill, "The results are in: How the nation voted on criminal justice issues that impact our youth"

From Marijuana Moment, "What The Loss of Marijuana-Friendly Republicans Means For Federal Legalization"

From Marijuana Moment, "Marijuana Got More Votes Than These Politicians In The Midterms"

From The Marshall Project, "Voters Want Criminal Justice Reform. Are Politicians Listening?"
