Brain science should be making prisons better, not trying to prove innocence

Neuroscience can help replace the current “one size fits all” approach to treating the sorts of personality and substance use disorders that affect so many incarcerated individuals.

Hollywood pushes a fantasy version of what neuroscience can do in the courtroom. But the field does have real benefits to offer, right now: solid evidence on what would improve prisons.

Could a Controversial Bill Sink Criminal-Justice Reform in Congress?

Do you support the newly revived bill hoping to change mens rea requirements in federal statutes?

Republicans say this is the answer to reform our justice system. Democrats are concerned it will make the prosecution of white collar crimes more difficult and will endanger the public.

A debate over mens rea stalled the last push for reform. Now, a similar battle could be brewing.

Hurricane Maria Upends 1st Circuit As Federal Courthouses In Puerto Rico Are Damaged

The most significant impact on the courts, Goldberg says, has been on the criminal caseload, which is bigger than all the other district courts in the first circuit combined. The federal prison sustained such significant damage that 1200 prisoners were evacuated to facilities in Mississippi and Florida.

"It's been devastating both in terms of the operation of the court and the lives of the court employees," said Susan Goldberg, the circuit executive for the Court of Appeals in Boston, after Hurricane Maria damaged federal courthouses in San Juan.

Although it is good news regarding Rodney Reed, please don't forget others in those same shoes.............
I've found some great free articles about criminal justice and society on www.fedprisonexpert.com Also on Facebook at facebook.com/fedprisonexpert Check it out.
Someone needs to look into the age discrimination with the 60 and over receiving home confinement after serving only two thirds of their sentence. It is very unfair and there should not be an age restriction.
I would like to know why the federal system are not giving their inmates the 6 months or more on a halfway house. There was a woman from Harrisburg that visited the satellite camp that my brother is in and said that the halfway houses are half empty but yet the prisons are saying that they are full and that is why they are not being given the full 6 months or more of the halfway house. I was just wondering what can we do about this or who can we go to so can get this problem resolved.
Please share this post. Thank you.
