Two great new pieces providing perspectives on prosecutorial perspectives

Two great new press pieces from major outlets provide a great window into the work and thinking of modern prosecutors.  Here are links with headlines and subheadlines:

From the New York Times, "Can Prosecutors Be Taught to Avoid Jail Sentences?: At least 60 district attorneys have come to see incarceration as destructive, racist, expensive and ineffective. But can they persuade their own staffs?"

From Politico, "‘Prosecutors Are Not Exempt from Criticism’: Five Black, female prosecutors offer 11 ideas for how to make their profession part of the solution."
