A straightforward look at the referenced subject matter. Despite its brevity the piece presents both sides of the issue in a clear and concise manner. There is bit of authorial bias present but overall this does not detract from the credibility of the work. The quoting and commentary reflect the seriousness of the discussion and provide valuable context. A distressing topic to be sure but the Author presents the whole in a generally even-handed manner which is both interesting and informative. A well-written and worthwhile read. Four stars!

A credible and clear exposition of facts and potential consequences related to using this crisis to encroach on civil rights.

This was actually not bad until the unhinged, unfounded, and accusatory diatribe about the Trump administration at the end.

Great Context

This is a pretty good article until we reach the author's conclusion in the final paragraph. Author Peter Wade assigns intent to the proposed policy change saying "the Trump administration is taking steps to hold more people in prisons for an undetermined amount of time — showing their priority is not saving lives but giving themselves more power." I hate when writers assign intent to people's actions, especially in a case like this where they are stating that their intent is something else, to slow down the spread of COVID-19. If the author dis some digging and came up with evidence for his claim, that would be fantastic reporting. But that's not the case here.
