Rounding up lots of good recent criminal justice reads

Another full work week with lots of activity has meant needing the weekend to catch up on interesting reading (and blogging) on a variety of criminal justice fronts.  So, here is a quick round up of some recent pieces catching my eye:

From The Crime Report, "Why It’s Time to Abandon Drug Courts" by Miriam Krinsky and Leo Beletsky

From the Georgetown Public Policy Review, "Public Opinion on the Death Penalty: Where Republicans and Democrats Agree (and Disagree)" by Emma Farber

From The Hill, "Politics in the Department of Justice can be a good thing" by Shon Hopwood

From The Hill, "Biden's justice reform should influence prosecutor appointments" by Russ Feingold and Amy Fettig

From The Hill, "Why do we still punish crack and powder cocaine offenses differently?" by Kevin Ring and Heather Rice-Minus

From My Northwest.com, "‘Worst of both worlds’: No easy fix for WA Supreme Court decision legalizing drug possession" by Hanna Scott
