Stuff to Read: Prosecutorial misconduct, mass incarceration, and how the black man became schizophrenic

Several excellent recent blog posts may be found on Karen Franklin's blog, In the News: Forensic Psychology, Criminology and Psychology-Law, which may interest Grits readers:
The third of those posts contained a link to an excellent academic article titled, "Police Deception during Interrogation and Its Surprising Influence on Jurors' Perceptions of Confession Evidence" that's well worth a read.

Also, check out a couple of notable items related to prosecutorial misconduct, including this USA Today article describing how rarely federal prosecutors are disciplined by state bar associations, and this post from describing the scope of prosecutorial misconduct in California.

Meanwhile, The American Prospect will publish a special issue early next year, with previews available here, on the subject of "Mass Incarceration in America" that may interest Grits readers.
