(Sign up at the link below to register for their outstanding daily release).

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: "Happy  Fifth Birthday to the Marshall Project  and the fine writers,  editors and support staff  who produce it. In the words of founder Neil Barsky:  "I founded The Marshall Project five years ago to address two urgent needs: first, I believed our criminal justice system, and the mass incarceration it spawned, was a national disgrace. At the same time, I was mindful that there were already thousands of committed individuals fighting for reform in the courts and on the streets. What we needed was a national conversation that would prompt people to understand the urgency of criminal justice reform in the courts and on the streets." Readers will find much more than a conversation in the Marshall Project's posts. You will also be treated to  tough, perceptive,  challenging,  informative journalism on the most criminal justice issues of the day. Bravo.  Check out The Marshall Project at:

The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic"  section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith.
