Ankle monitors are another type of prison

In Texas and across the country, ankle monitors have often been promoted as a humane alternative to traditional incarceration. After a spate of negative publicity exposed the practice of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to separate undocumented immigrant parents and children, families have now been monitored through these devices. In addition, people accused of white-collar crimes have also been assigned ankle monitors on a fairly frequent basis. Research indicates that police and other agencies' use of electronic ankle monitors has more than doubled between 2005 and 2015.

Drug reform laws reduce racial disparities in arrests

As the public's view toward some drugs evolves in Texas, the results of drug law reforms in other places have eased racial disparities among people who get arrested. After California passed a proposition that changed some felony drug offenses to misdemeanors, researchers detected a drop in the disparity between arrested blacks and whites. From a disparity rating of 81 per 100,000 felony drug arrests, the difference dropped to 44 per 100,000 after only one month since the effective date of the law.
