Lots of commentary and advice for Prez Biden's criminal justice reforms task one week in

Prez Biden has been on the job for only a little more than a week, but lots of folks already have lots of thoughts and advice for what he (and his party) should be doing in the criminal justice reform arena.  Here is a round up of just some of the discussions I have seen in recent days:

From Al Jazeera, "Biden and prison reforms – a soft target?"

From The American Prospect, "How Biden Should Prosecute Corporate Crime: In top-to-bottom criminal justice reform, let’s not forget the top."

From The Appeal, "Why The Biden Administration’s Choice To Lead The Bureau Of Prisons Matters"

From Bloomberg Law, "Criminal Justice Changes Need Harris to Lead, Advocates Say"

From the Boston Globe, "Biden must not miss the urgency of the moment on criminal justice reform"

From The Hill, "True criminal justice reform requires family support"

From HuffPost, "After Trump’s Execution Spree, Criminal Justice Leaders Urge Biden To End Death Penalty"

From Reason, "Democrats Have No Excuse Not to Reform the Criminal Justice System"

From Time, "‘Much More Work To Be Done.’ Advocates Call for More Action Against Private Prisons After Biden's ‘First Step’ Executive Order"

From USA Today, "Biden's executive orders on criminal justice should extend to inmates sent home by COVID"
