Some long reads for a long weekend

I am on the road for (even longer than) a long weekend, but I can still provide some links to some long reads in the criminal justice and sentencing space:

From ABC News, "Here's where the 2024 presidential candidates stand on crime and criminal justice"

From the Bennington Banner, "Prosecutors and public frustrated by lenience in Bennington criminal cases"

From CNN, "Executions in the US are in decline – but some jurisdictions lead the rest"

From HuffPost, "Prisoners Say New Jersey’s Alternative To Solitary Confinement Is Pretty Much The Same"

From Michigan Radio NPR, "Sentenced to die in prison, 'juvenile lifers' ask lawmakers to end life without parole for minors"

From the Minnesota Reformer, "Minnesota cops take millions of dollars from people without criminal convictions"

From The New Yorker, "How a New Approach to Public Defense Is Overcoming Mass Incarceration"

From ProPublica, "Louisiana Supreme Court Ruling Overturns Reform Law Intended to Fix “Three-Strikes” Sentences"

From the San Francisco Chronicle, "Millennials, Gen Z committing fewer violent crimes than previous generations of youth"

From Wired, "These Prisoners Are Training AI"
