Recent Magazine Articles on Incarceration

Ran across this recent piece and thought I’d post it.

Prison Without Walls appears in this month’s Atlantic. It is written by Graeme Wood and discusses the use of home monitoring/electronic ankle monitors. Of note I think is the discussion including some that “correct” elements of the text. A few months back the Economist also ran some work on prisons (Joys of Overcrowding)which also generated a few interesting comments.

I find these types of pieces (and the online comments)  useful teaching tools. Are there other recent pieces that are on people’s radar?
