"An (overly?) optimistic account of how GPS technology could "solve" mass incarceration"

Doug Berman has this post at Sentencing Law & Policy:

This recent article from Vox, headlined "Prisons are terrible, and there‚Äôs finally a way to get rid of them," praises and promotes efforts to use GPS tracking to reduce US reliance on incarceration. The article strikes me as a bit too optimistic, but it does assembled some research that may justify such optimism.
