"But plea deals are also one of the least-scrutinized parts of the criminal-justice system. “In most cases, that’s a complete black box,” Gottschalk said. “It allows prosecutors to have this enormous power without much transparency to the public.”
An abundance of data has fueled the reform movement, but from prisons to prosecutors, crucial questions remain unquantified.

A long but interesting read. The Great Filter: in front of us or behind us?
Scientists estimate that there are over 100,000 intelligent alien civilizations in our galaxy alone—but we've never heard anything from any of them. Here are 13 possible explanations for why.

And surely many of these cases were blamed on being self inflicted... What do you think, +Lauren Weinstein​?

It's always been around in one form or another but probably less common than is being made out currently.

Auschwitz guard offers Germans something rare: A Nazi who admits what he did

On the opening day of his trial on 300,000 counts of accessory to murder, the man known as the "accountant of Auschwitz" told of the moment he lost his "euphoria for Adolf Hitler."

He was standing on a train platform after Hungarian Jews had been unloaded at the Nazi death camp. The unwitting condemned already had been sent to the gas chambers. The newly arrived slave laborers had been sent in a different direction.

Left behind on the platform was a crying infant. As the child cried, one of the now 93-year-old Oskar Groening's fellow SS officers approached it, grabbed it by the leg, dashed its head against a nearby truck, then tossed the lifeless body into the truck.

As horrific as that story is, what might have been more shocking was Groening's next observation.

Excerpts from this interesting article:

"When you take a job as a police officer, you do so voluntarily. You understand the risks associated with the work. But because you signed on to do a dangerous job does not mean you are then allowed to violate the human rights, civil rights, and civil liberties of the people you serve. It's the opposite. You should protect those rights, and when you don't you should be held accountable. That simple statement will be received by police apologists as "anti-cop."  It is not."

"The first priority is accountability — punishment — for officers who willfully abuse the rights and bodies of those they are sworn to serve. Training means absolutely nothing if officers don't adhere to it and are not held accountable when they don't. It is key to any meaningful reform."

What's missing: stop allowing money from tickets, forfeiture, etc to flow back to law enforcement as to minimize questionable incentives.

5 things I wish people understood about bias in American police departments.

Utter insanity. Wait until someone tells them that their body weight affects the automatic leveling circuits. HA! The Torah authors would still be laughing themselves silly that anybody took them seriously.

When the U.S. introduced the measles vaccine, childhood deaths from all infections plummeted. Scientists think they might know why: Benefits of the measles vaccine go way beyond the measles.

Interesting. More or less what I expected. I don't think the right word is bias though.
 
I almost broke my brain with a backwards bicycle for the sake of Science. I would appreciate it if you would share this video so people become aware of their own cognitive biases.
