It was "deal with the small stuff so they won't go to the big stuff, and also it sent a strong message of…

Here's a sample:It wasn't so long ago that Ferguson, Mo., was supposed to be an American morality tale of racism, the militarization of police, and all manner of other evil. For a few weeks in August, the attention of the national media focused on the suburb of St. Louis, and MSNBC practically broadcast nothing else. President Barack Obama even mentioned Ferguson at a U.N. speech in the context of terror groups that behead people and sectarian…

    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - The inmate communication services industry is being fundamentally reshaped by the FCC. Potentially more significant than its predecessor initiative, which significantly reduced prison payphone long-distance rates, the recently issued Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeks comment on key drivers of revenue and profit for these prison payphone providers and the prisons themselves. With the two largest providers of payphone services owned by private equity firms, not usually known for embracing a shrinking profit model, it will be interesting to see…

  • What is a Ward of The State?

    JacksonWhite Law
    17 Oct 2014 | 10:14 am
    A ward of the state is usually a minor who has no parents and lives under protective custody of the state. In court, they’re appointed a legal guardian to uphold their best interests. These guardians are appointed by the judge to make life decisions for someone who is either mentally incapable or a minor. Deranged adults who are drug and alcohol addicted and can’t help themselves can also be wards of the state. These individuals are considered “incapacitated persons” by the law, and are also called wards by the court. Who can be the guardian of a ward in Arizona? Family members or…

    Like Miranda v. Arizona, the circumstances of Roper v. Simmons overhauled and critiqued the U.S. justice system. As a result, the Supreme Court ruled that capital punishment was unconstitutional for crimes committed when the defendant was less than 18-years-old. This decision overruled Stanford v. Kentucky from 1989, which upheld capital punishment for offenders who were 16 or older. Roper v. Simmons overturned statues from 25 states that had set a lower age limit.

However, it may be surprising for many to learn that females with criminal records across the country are having a harder time finding employment than their male counterparts, according to recent studies.

First-Degree Escape in AZ According to A.R.S. 13-2504, escape in the first degree is a class 4 felony in Arizona.

    Texting while driving is not illegal in Arizona, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a genuine problem that needs addressing. Surprisingly, 44 other states have already banned texting while driving and Arizona is one of the only few states that hasn’t. Arizona, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, and Texas are all states that lack a formal ban against texting and driving. Be that as it may, bus drivers in Arizona are rightfully banned from using cellphones at all while behind the wheel. The most recent states to ban texting while driving are South Dakota and New Mexico. It won’t be…

A settlement was announced this week by the financial regulator in New York state that the company will pay a fine of $300 million fine and will have to stop a highly profitable business activity because it has failed to weed out several types of transaction that often involve money laundering, a form of financial fraud, which is similar to expensive settlements that occurred in 2012.

    When you think about private investigators and what they actually do, it is quite easy to simply get swept away by romantic notions of the job, as depicted on the big (and small) screen. Even if your view of a modern-day PI is less Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and more Magnum P.I., far-fetched conceptions are still going to be made about the life of a private investigator. Even grittier and more authentic TV detective characters like Jimmy McNulty of The Wire and John Luther of Luther may get involved with extreme scenarios that still fail to accurately display what this kind of role really…

    As you may or may not know on 31st July 2013 the Home Secretary, Teresa May, announced the Governments intention to have private investigators regulated/licensed through the Security Industry Authority. As it stands today April 29th 2014 the licensing of Private Investigators in the UK appears to still be some way off being implemented.  Therefore when deciding which investigation firm you should choose to help you there are a few vital things that should be looked at. Here is a list of the things you should be looking at before deciding who to instruct:  Does the private investigation firm…

    The term “bluebeard” conveys images of pirates sailing the high seas, but the actual meaning of this term is much darker and there are examples of it all around us. You see, a “bluebeard” is a man that murders his wife. The term is derived from a French folktale dating back to the 1600′s, making this horrible idea not a new one. The fact that this term isn’t commonly used in North America is curious, since its female counterpart “black widow” is widely known worldwide. In this episode of Sword and Scale we examine some Bluebeard cases which you…

    Everyone thought Joshua Gouker was a dangerous criminal. It was easy to convict him of murdering his 14-year-old step son Trey Zwicker, especially after he suddenly changed his plea to guilty and confessed. But why would a hardened criminal mastermind, who had several friends and family members at his command and lying for him, suddenly confess at trial without a plea bargain in place? The answer is that his son, who he proudly referred to as a demon child, was also on trial for the same murder, and although he was only 15 when Zwicker died, he was being tried as an adult. The bond between…

    In this special two-parter, the brutal and inexplicable murder of a 14-year-old boy exposes a dysfunctional American family’s secrets and lies.  This is the story of Trey Zwicker’s murder, a young boy who did everything right but never really had a chance because he grew up in the wrong place, around the wrong people. This is also the story of a father and son.  Joshua Young, a bright honor-role student, and Joshua Gouker, a convicted felon who had spent most of his son’s lifetime behind bars.  The two were so close that they even share a murder indictment for Trey…

    This is one of the most under-reported murders in the history of the North American Continent. A mutilation that took hours and mind that was so disturbed it relished in the extreme violence inflicted on the deceased, this story exposes the obvious deficiencies in the extremely Liberal Canadian justice system, which even many natives don’t even fully understand. Dan Zupansky, author of Trophy Kill “The Shall We Ask Murder” and host of the highly-popular true-crime podcast True Murder “The Most Shocking Killers in True Crime History”, joins us to tell us a tale…

    Every year more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving more than 6 million children.  Being one of these children is nightmarish enough, but if your abuser is someone you completely trust, then the event becomes all the more traumatic.  Jamie Sivrais was one of these children.  When he was 10 his father, who had been absent much of his early life, sexually abused him.  Emboldened by his act, the abuse escalated to a point where Jamie knew he had to do something to try and put an end to it. Today Jamie runs a non-profit called A Voice for the…

  • Strangest Final Meal Requests

    Heather Sutfin
    7 Oct 2014 | 8:31 am
    It is customary for inmates to be provided with a last meal request preceding their execution. The tradition began in Europe as a sort of peace offering between the inmate, the judge, and executioner. It is symbolic of the accused being forgiven for their past, and superstitiously believed to prevent the executed inmate’s ghost from returning to haunt the executioner. Since inmates are allowed to choose whatever they want to eat, with a few exceptions, there is no doubt that there have been some odd requests over the years. Victor Feguer Michigan drifter, and convicted murderer, Victor…
  • Murder Incorporated

    Murder is nothing new. Most murderers are amateurs while some, such as hitmen, are professionals. What you very seldom find is a group of hitmen, a dedicated gang of killers selling murder-for-hire as the enforcement arm of a national crime syndicate. ‘Murder Incorporated’ was exactly that. Within the underworld there was nothing like them prior to their appearance and there’s been nothing like them since their demise. They were an integral part of the restructuring of American organised crime and one of the most notorious criminal groups that ever existed. Louis ‘Lepke’…

  • The Original Sons of Anarchy

    26 Sep 2014 | 5:10 pm
    Unlike FX’s popular drama Sons of Anarchy, the early Norwegian black metal scene had very little to do with motorcycles, but it had everything to do with anarchy. This small group of bands, some still producing music today, included Mayhem, Bathory, Darkthrone, Emperor, Enslaved, Burzum, along with several other lesser-known groups. Often painting themselves in corpse paint, conducting bizarre and grotesque antics at their stage shows, as well as their disdain for organized religion, were just the tip of the iceberg.

  • Can Police Force You to Submit to a Blood Test at a DUI Stop?

    Matthew Wallin
    9 Oct 2014 | 12:17 pm
    The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in Missouri v. McNeely that police do not have a right to force you to take a blood test during a DUI stop.1The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects you from unreasonable searches and seizures. Because of this ruling, if a cop forces you to submit to a blood test during a DUI stop, the test could be considered illegal and the results will likely not be accepted as evidence. What if I Refuse to Take a Test? You can refuse to take a blood test at a DUI stop. However, if the police find probable cause that you committed a crime, they can search you…

  • What is a DMV Hearing? (Video)

    Matthew Wallin
    11 Sep 2014 | 2:46 pm
    A DMV hearing is part of the process you will go through if you are arrested for a DUI. Once you are arrested, an officer will take away your license and you will later be issued a temporary pink license. Once you are issued a temporary pink license, you have 10 days to set a DMV hearing. If you fail to set a DMV hearing, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended. A DUI arrest will trigger both a DMV hearing to determine if your license will be suspended, as well as charges in criminal court. The sole purpose of the DMV hearing is for the DMV to take away your license. The…

    21 Oct 2014 | 6:19 am
    In Pennsylvania, DUI or Driving Under the Influence is usually considered a misdemeanor. While a misdemeanor is less serious than a felony, it can still trigger a slew of harsh consequences — including a prominent note on your public criminal record.  Anyone can view this record, including but not limited to prospective employers and loan officers, which means that you may run into obstacles when you’re trying to get hired for a job or take out a loan.  So is there any way you can remove old DUI charges from your record?

    After you’re issued a traffic ticket, you have two options: you can accept it and pay the fine, or deny it and fight the ticket in court.  But if you do neither, a judge can issue a bench warrant for your arrest.  Our traffic violation lawyers explain how traffic offenses can lead to warrants, and what you should do if there’s a bench warrant out for your arrest. How a Traffic Ticket Can Lead to a Bench Warrant Tickets can be issued for two basic types of traffic violations: moving violations  (such as speeding, failure to use turn signals, or failure to wear a seat belt),…

    23 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am
    Pennsylvania offers an ARD Program (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition)  for certain DUI offenders.  ARD is a wonderful opportunity, because successful participation means you don’t have to plead guilty, you won’t be convicted, and the charges against you will be dropped.  But what if your DUI was based on drugs instead of alcohol?  Does ARD cover intoxicated driving offenses that involve marijuana?  Our DUI defense lawyers have the answers.

    Court can be an intimidating place.  For some people, the prospect of facing judges, juries, and prosecutors is so intimidating that they decide to skip their court date altogether.  The temptation to avoid making a scheduled appearance may feel strong right now, but hopefully you’ll change your mind before your calendar date comes up — because if you don’t, the judge will issue a bench warrant for your arrest.  If you’ve already missed a court date, what should you do next?  Our criminal defense attorneys explain.

    Hannah Overton (crying salty tears) Recently Hannah Overton had her murder conviction overturned in the death of her foster son Andrew Burd. She was initially convicted of killing Andrew by way of sodium poisoning as it was alleged she used some kind of salt filled seasoning as a punishment resulting in his death. There were also accusations of blunt force trauma against Andrew and making him sleep on a plywood bed under the watch of a hidden camera. Since Overton belonged to a local Texas mega-church there has been an outcry since her arrest to free her. Now prosecutors have stated that they…

    Bell and Downs An 11-year-old boy recently ran away from his home in Plain Dealing, Louisiana. He was gone for 25 hours before police found him relatively unharmed. I say relatively because the boy was said to have excessive bruising on his body. As it turned out the boy told police that his father and step-mother were physically abusive to him. DCFS further investigated and 43-year-old Ernest W. Bell III and 30-year-old Kristen M. Downs were charged with child abuse. They were also booked on drug and weapons charges as investigators found weed and guns in the home. The pair are said to have…

    Yeah, so BB has been banned by Google Adsense. Well, not so much banned as they told us to change the content on the site as it’s considered either sensitive or a hate site or they would ban us. They wouldn’t get into specifics about what the offending or sensitive content was so I just removed the Adsense ads from the site. Unfortunately that means the main revenue from the site has been lost. Not that it was a living revenue mind you but it’s gone nonetheless. What this means to you is that you may be seeing more increased ads from another service on the site, especially…

    Utah mom accused of helping son in drive-by shooting Mom Accused of Helping Son in Drive-by Shooting While many of us enjoy helping our children with homework and projects, there are SOME things that we should avoid assisting them with. Indeed, we should discourage some behaviors altogether. Alas, Lisa Egersdorf has too few brain cells to be able to distinguish between the good activities and the bad ones. But, she DOES have that really nice face tat, so I guess that is some sort of consolation for her. Lisa is a 36-year-old woman who thought it would be a great idea to help her 17-year-old…
