Rounding up some recent reform reads

As is too often the case, my news feed and in-box is full of really good pieces about criminal justice issues and reform that all merit more attention that the limited bloggy time I have mid-semester.  So I will try to cover lots of ground with this round-up of recommended pieces:

From Ames Grawert & Lauren-Brooke Eisen, "Don’t Let Misleading Claims Derail Federal Sentencing Reform"

From Dana Hall McCain, "A Christian view of prison reform"

From Dawinder Sidhu, "Society has failed to provide adequate ‘offramps’ away from criminal behavior"

From Greg Berman, "America’s Justice System Needs a ‘Course Correction’: Jeremy Travis"

From Joe Lancaster, "Pennsylvania Could Put a Homeless Man in Prison Over 43 Cents"

From John J. Lennon, "I Am Serving 28 Years to Life. Why Does One Person Decide if I Deserve Mercy?"

From Lauren Gill, "Breaking the Link Between Community Supervision and Mass Incarceration"
