William Stuntz, 1958-2011
Criminal justice scholars everywhere are, I'm sure, very sad to hear about the passing of William Stuntz. Stuntz, a criminal procedure scholar at Harvard Law school, was a strong, influential and original voice in support of humane police procedures, sane sentencing regimes, and nondiscriminatory correctional practices. As an example of his unique perspective on justice, read this wonderful post he wrote about the irony of racial discrimination in a supposed era of enlightenment about race and civil rights.
