Deep Anti-Men Bias Entrenched among Elite Criminal Justice Lawyers

Dear {eminent law professors X and Y},

You might find interesting this close reading of an aspect of the formal rational basis in U.S. v. Morrison (529 U.S. 598):

At the intake end of the criminal justice system, arrests for domestic violence now account for about 60% of arrests for interpersonal violence. Change in capacity to reason about domestic violence is associated with the development of mass incarceration:

Please take these issues seriously.

{response from eminent law professor Y}

I don’t usually respond to emails like this. But let me say: domestic violence against women has gone on far too long unpunished. If incarceration is the current response, I am not ashamed. I have serious difficulties with incarceration as the only penalty. That does NOT excuse violence perpetrated in women by men.

Thanks for your response. You seem not to understand. See:

You should be ashamed.

Nope.

Local Dataset Hosting Location Error

The local hosting URLs were wrong in the dataset manifest and in the corresponding dataset post meta-data. These issues have been corrected in the current site archive. Earlier DVD versions of the archive have a single, incorrect URL for all local dataset hosting locations. A person with some familiarity with Excel can easily make these corrections. They’re fairly obvious.
