In Wisconsin, controversial algorithms help decide who stays in jail before trial | Crime and Courts |
Adopted on a trial basis by the Dane County Circuit Court, the Public Safety Assessment, or the PSA, is a computer algorithm that uses defendants’ criminal history and past performance in court to predict the risk of them committing a new crime or failing to appear in court. The PSA is one of many of these statistical tools, called pretrial risk assessments, that are being used across the nation.

Endeavour series 6 episode 1 review: a new era begins | Den of Geek
Morse is back with a satisfying case that promises tragedy and corruption on a grand scale. Spoilers ahead in our review of Pylon...
This review contains spoilers.
6.1 Pylon 
It’s the summer of 1969, and, as a fraught decade draws to its close, change is afoot in Oxford. When we last saw Endeavour Morse (Shaun Evans), he and his colleagues were reeling from a terrible loss. The murder of George Fancy in a shootout at a gangsters’ haunt – an open-and-shut-case on the face of it – had been exposed as something more complex by pathologist Max DeBryn (James Bradshaw), who revealed that the fatal bullet was not fired from the gun that killed the men Fancy was attempting to apprehend at the time of his murder.

Forget The Crown, ITV’s Endeavour is the period drama for our time
“Go home. Put your best record on... And with every note, you remember: that’s something the darkness couldn’t take from you.”
This Sunday, Endeavour returns to our TV screens for its sixth series. It is 1969, a year of moon landings, President Nixon, the Krays and Monty Python. For Endeavour Morse and his colleagues, however, it is a time of new beginnings, grief and… moustaches.
We spend a lot of time critiquing and obsessing over historical authenticity, inaccuracies and achievement in period drama. Yet, weirdly, Endeavour seems to fly under the radar. Despite pulling in solid weekly viewing figures and standing on the shoulders of the cultural giant that was Inspector Morse, there have been very few pieces exploring the quality of one of ITV's most successful shows. Glossy big-budget dramas such as Bodyguard, The Night Manager, Sherlock, Luther and The Crown, might soak up publicity resources and dominate conversations, but to my mind it is Endeavour that has been quietly and consistently turning out the best drama on TV. In short, it is excellent.
