A couple of interesting pieces on Ferguson. The first by Nat Silver, noted Quant, who analyzes where police live and work. Surprise, more and more police live outside of where they police.
The second is a piece that bubbled to the surface recently here in Ottawa as a judge decided not to impose mandatory fees on a plaintiff. This trend is quite troubling and, historically, a precursor to full fledged debtor prisons. This piece in Marginal Revolution doesn’t mince words.
