Newsweek magazine goes criminal justice crazy

I get this magazine in the mail every week.

And this week I open it up and BAM! A new section titled, "Criminal Justice."

Stories include:

"The Death of the Death Penalty" (about America's move away from capital punishment)

"I Committed Murder" (about how executioners feel after they kill someone)

"I Ordered Death in Georgia" (one executioner's account)

"God, It’s Got to Stop" (one man's quest to end gang violence)

And finally, the magazine is worth reading again.

  1. "God, It's Got to Stop" sounds like the "pulling levers" approach, which has some evidence-based success. It sound like UNC-G's gang initiative project that is being used in areas of North Carolina. It makes sense, and it has research behind it.
