This Friday at 12:15 I’ll be giving a talk for the Berkeley Center for Criminal Justice. It’s in the Dean’s Seminar Room at Boalt Hall. The talk is open to the public, and they’re even serving lunch.
I’ll be talking about crime control, working from the book manuscript I’m about to send off to Princeton: When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment. (Publication now scheduled for August.)
My claim is that we could have half as many people in prison a decade from now and also have half as much crime, using only things we already know how to do. Let me know if you plan to come, and I’ll send you the readings.
