In my effort to make this your morning stop for all things criminal justice and civil liberties, I’ll be putting up a morning roundup of stories related to the issues we’ll be covering on this blog. Plus, usually a couple items that aren’t related at all.

Here’s your first set of morning links:

— Bill Bratton says Stop & Frisk will continue. New York City criminal defense attorney Scott Greenfield isn’t surprised.
Headline of the day.

— The son of Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby is missing.
— Violent crime appears to have fallen pretty much everywhere in 2013. (Except Terre Haute.)
