    In my first year at the Justice Department, one of the senior lawyers  --  seeing that I was frustrated by all the amicus briefs that had been filed opposing the government's position -- told me, "Thank God for your enemies."It was a tremendous insight.  From that day forward, I spent a lot of time hoping and praying that any organization aligned with, say, Al Sharpton, would line up against me.  The more furiously it denounced the argument I was making, the surer I was that I was right.I got that same feeling this morning when I found out that President Bartlett, a/k/a…

    Chicago, Illinois has among the most restrictive gun laws in the county, and no death penalty.  Capital punishment was abolished in Illinois three years ago.With more enlightened punishment certain to increase public respect for the fairness of the law (as we are ceaselessly told), and with stringent regulation of guns making the streets safer, Chicago must be on the way to setting an example for the nation.And, in truth and in fact, it is setting an example --  exactly the example you'd expect when thugs see that the rest of us are losing our nerve.

    The New Hampshire Legislature is considering a bill that would make it illegal to use a cell phone, iPad, GPS, or other electronic device while driving, stopped at a light, or while sitting in traffic. Last week the Senate Transportation Committee heard testimony from several people, including Earl Sweeney, the Commissioner of Safety, as to why HB 1360 should pass.  If this does happen, and it’s still a ways off, New Hampshire would be the thirteenth state to make the use of hand-held cell phones and electronic devices illegal while driving.

This number of recalls does include Canada and Mexico as well as cars and trucks exported outside of North America that needed to be repaired or recalled. The latest recall was on Monday when General Motors recalled 1.3 million vehicles, mostly in the U.S., to fix a problem in power steering.

    David Adams
    19 Apr 2014 | 9:15 pm
    The sudden disappearance of young 8-year-old Relisha Rudd from a Washington D.C. homeless shelter is simply a heartbreaking story. The adorable little girl was reportedly last seen with Kalil Tatum who was a janitor working at the old D.C. General Hospital shelter where the child lived with her family. Since the story first broke I have held serious reservations regarding the account of the child’s family members, that Tatum took the child and just vanished. Although news media has published a February 26, 2014 surveillance video from a Maryland hotel which established Tatum at some…

    When heinous violent crimes are committed against the law abiding citizens within any jurisdiction in America there is an expectation from the public that those empowered to protect the people will act swiftly to bring criminals to justice in the name of public safety. There is even a greater presumption that those who have been charged with crimes will be afforded all of the liberties granted by law, such has a right to a fair, public, and speedy trial with competent legal representation. We believe that these elements of our justice system, though often flawed, is in fact the greatest…

    He is a young man with no prior brushes with the law of any kind, but sadly a horrific ordeal landed him in a Franklin County jail cell nearly two years ago. Quite frankly, it’s rather bizarre how cops came to the conclusion that he conspired with Rhonda Maclean’s daughter, to kill her and rob her of nearly $65,000.00 dollars one autumn night back in 2012. Many of the official documents have already been made public while pointing to Shannon Nyamodi’s innocence of having been involved in this horrible crime. In fact Shannon should never have even been charged with shooting…

    For some people the image of being locked up in a caged jail cell is simply a concept where the very worst of mankind are suppose to dwell for conduct intolerable throughout civilization, and in many instances such a place is justified for those who have committed the most heinous acts against society. The unfortunate reality is that the American criminal justice system is flawed. Far too many defendants who find themselves embroiled in criminal cases are being incarcerated for crimes they are in fact not responsible for having committed. The disparity of defendants placed in such an awkward…

  • Maryland Becomes Latest State to Decriminalize Recreational Marijuana

    JacksonWhite Law
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:00 am
    Citizens who consume cannabis in Maryland will no longer serve any type of jail time. Instead, marijuana users caught possessing only small amounts of the plant will be fined; there will be no arrest, no criminal record, and no incarceration. Governor Martin O’Malley signed the Bill on April 14th but it won’t go into effect until October 1st. O’Malley says he signed the Bill because very few people actually go to jail for possession of small amounts of marijuana, but their arrests and convictions stay with them forever, hindering their future. Will Maryland legalize marijuana?

    Who should get custody of their child?  Child custody battles are one of the most unfortunate fallouts of a divorce. When a couple can’t reach an agreement about child custody, the case can end up in courts. It can get complicated and nasty as each parent claims that they are the “better” parent. After looking at both sides, the court will ultimately decide who should be awarded custody based on the child’s best interests.  While most couples can have their day in court quietly, Hollywood celebrities are offered no such luxury.  Case in point, the celebrity custody battle…

    A few incidents that took place in Oakland, Seattle, Los Angeles, New York and Massachusetts over the last few years depict a picture of America’s Police becoming too militarized. The American police have started applying the tactics of soldiers at war in situations where the opposition involves the everyday American citizen. With the growing crime rate and increases in international threats form overseas, more stories of officers in uniform abusing their power with an overuse of force have risen to the surface.

Sadly, however, this is all too much the reality when it comes to Scotland Yard’s detective force. The Daily Mail has revealed compelling evidence that implicates several officers in two seemingly unrelated murders – that of black teenager Stephen Lawrence in 1993, and of Private Investigator Daniel Morgan in 1987. Lawrence was just 18 when he was brutally murdered by a white gang in a racist attack, but it…

The truth is that most PIs are not nearly as colourful as those characters; instead they’re just men and women who have a love of problem solving, collecting and analysing the evidence and have huge quantities of both the tenacity of the Rottweiler and the patience of Saints.

Born in 1881, Hans Schmidt was ordained as a Roman Catholic priest in Mainz, Germany, in 1906.  Handsome and charismatic, he appeared to be a bright young star in the German church.  His enthusiasm was contagious, and his willingness to take on any assignment held the promise of a long and fruitful career in the service of God. With the influx of thousands of Germans and other Europeans onto American shores at the turn of the 20th century, priests like…
