This new and updated second edition of Captured Justice accounts for legislation and government policy changes at all levels—tribal, federal, state, and local—that have affected the operation of Public Law 280 and its regime of state criminal jurisdiction within parts of Indian country. Among other developments, it incorporates the findings and recommendations of the 2013 report of the Indian Law and Order Commission, advances by Tribes and states in achieving greater intergovernmental cooperation, and new writings on criminal justice that suggest additional grounds for questioning the efficacy of Public Law 280 and additional ways of mitigating its adverse impacts on tribal communities. Although the research presented in this book could not be redone, its findings are still relevant because the fundamental problems associated with Public Law 280 as a nonconsensual, under-resourced regime remain.
