it was amazing

This was perhaps the best critique I have ever read of the criminal justice system. Bold, insightful, extremely thoughtful, and practical. It's a travesty that he's not around to continue to contribute his thoughts in the future. This is way better than the standard leftist critique that the system is racist and overly punitive. While Stuntz makes the same points, he explains why this happened and provides concrete feedback for real change. This was one amazing book!
