He claims the “assumptions that are embedded in the criminal justice system” need to be challenged. Throughout his 90-minute testimony, Emanuel explained…

    The narrative has already begun that the assassination of two NYC police officers had nothing to do with the hatred of the police Leftists (and not a few libertarians) have been fanning at least since the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson.  A related narrative is that the assassin was simply a deranged man bent on violence, see, e.g., this just-published NYT story.I guess we're supposed to forget this demonstration, staged in New York City a very few days before yesterday's assassination.  For those who have trouble with the audio portion, let me spell it out.  What the…

The images showed a silver handgun with a wooden handle and a pair of camouflage pants and blue tennis shoes that appear to match those worn by the suspect as he was circulated by the media that show him being transported to the hospital.

  • Noe Valley package thieves caught on camera (video)

    Evan Sernoffsky
    21 Dec 2014 | 12:07 pm
    Two seedy thieves were apparently caught on home surveillance video swiping packages from the doorstep of a home in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood. The homeowner posted the video, which shows the alleged crooks in striking detail, on YouTube Friday, warning other neighbors of the threat. In the video, a man in a red coat is seen opening a gate to the home while a woman dressed in dark clothing stands by. After a few moments, the man walks back with a package in his hand and the duo nonchalantly continues on. Police have long warned residents about holiday-season package thieves who…

  • Death sentences in state drop to 14 this year, and only one in N. Cal.

    18 Dec 2014 | 6:40 pm
    In California, all 14 death sentences this year have come from the southern and central parts of the state except for one in Sacramento County. The nationwide decline in death sentences this year is strikingly reflected in California, whose counties have handed down 14 death sentences in 2014 compared with 25 in 2013, according to a new report from the Death Penalty Information Center. Fourteen was the highest number of any state, and California also has the nation’s largest Death Row, with 750 condemned prisoners. But opponents of capital punishment say the drop in death sentences in this…
  • Court bleeps witness’ racist word, leaves conviction intact

    Bob Egelko
    17 Dec 2014 | 3:14 pm
    This is a story about a racist word and how the courts prevented a jury from hearing that a witness had used it. It’s also a family publication, so we’ll leave some of the details to the reader’s imagination. The case comes from Concord, where a teenager named Michael said he was beaten and robbed by several men in his home in April 2007. He identified one of the robbers as Marc Anthony Bryant. But another teenager who was with Michael did not identify Bryant in a police photo lineup, and Bryant’s lawyers said Michael had lied to the police about other things. The youth’s…

    It may be startling to know that Halloween is statistically the deadliest day for pedestrians being hit by cars. Nearly three times as many pedestrian deaths occur on this holiday as compared to any other day of the year. Of those deaths, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says 19 percent of the pedestrian deaths involve alcohol. Halloween is on a Friday this year, which could increase the chances of a pedestrian accident. Because trick or treaters can’t always rely on motor vehicle drivers to abide by the rules of the road or take their safety into consideration, it is up…

Although many perspectives do entail viable arguments related to how police authorities have failed the community in this process. Here we stand once again on the shores of America where an injustice has taken the life of one of our young people at the hands of a police officer, whose rationalization for killing Michael Brown echoes a similar posture from white police officers who proclaim that they were simply in fear for their lives.

  • Alcohol Laws & Tailgating in Arizona

    JacksonWhite Law
    12 Dec 2014 | 9:21 am
    Despite what you might think, tailgating is actually completely legal for those who follow the rules. However, some restrictions for tailgating do exist including: no games that encourage excessive drinking, no underage drinking, and no liquor or glass bottles. In everyday life, standing outside and shot-gunning a beer on your street corner, or in a very public area, would get you into big trouble with the law. While tailgating may not seem much different than that, it is in the eyes of law enforcement officials. It seems like police don’t enforce the law at tailgates? Whether it’s for a…

There is no simple definition for free speech, and subsequently, it seems like the limits of the 1st amendment are constantly being tested and redefined. With the rise of social media, the argument of what constitutes free speech is now more prevalent than ever. American citizens who think they’re protected by the 1st amendment, even online, are finding themselves in a courtroom more and more for making ignorant threats via social media, or slandering businesses on Yelp.

    No, you can’t smoke medical marijuana in public places, but you can freely consume marijuana edibles anywhere you want if you have a medical marijuana card. However if you’re going to be driving, you should make sure any trace of marijuana is out of your system, edibles or not, because even if you have your medical card, you’re still legally bound to Arizona DUI law.

    Last week a Staten Island, NY grand jury found that a white New York police officer who put a chokehold on a black man, Eric Garner, which led to his death, was not guilty of a crime. The decision ended the criminal case against the officer. The decision quickly drew widespread condemnation around the country. The fatal arrest was caught on video camera by a passerby and has been seen around the world.

    An Eagle, Idaho physician who was forced to stop practicing in the summer has agreed to plead guilty to three federal drug charges. However, he changed his mind after two weeks and now is saying he is innocent. After that, federal prosecutors returned to the federal grand jury with 95 more drug charge allegations that the doctor, Michael Minas, distributed oxycodone to his patients without a medical reason. The grand jury then indicted him on those, plus the 17 that were in the indictment in the summer. These new federal drug charges are related to prescriptions that Minas wrote for 10 of his…

The depravity of someone who would construct a building solely for the purpose of torture, murder, and the “processing” of human bodies for profit, is unimaginable.

    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.

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.

    For most of us, sexual and physical abuses to children are some of the worst of the worst crimes a person could commit. Even within the prison system, those that commit offenses against children are considered the lowest class of inmate, and are often forced into segregation to avoid conflict with other prisoners. Many parents live in fear that their children may fall prey to these disturbed individuals, but sadly, more often than not the people that commit these heinous crimes are those that children feel the closest to.

    Hannah Overton (crying salty tears) Former convicted killer of her foster child Andrew Burd, Hannah Overton has been released on bond pending a new trial. So having dealt with criminal misinformation before please allow me to explain what this means. She has not been exonerated. She has not been cleared of any charges. She has not been acquitted. She has not been found innocent. I know I sound like someone from the Department of Redundancy Department but sometimes you have to hold the morons’ hands. A lot of the article I’ve read on the subject of her release say that she can…

    William Bentley 22-year-old William Bentley of Madison Township, Ohio, has been arrested for allegedly headbutting his 7-week-old infant son, repeatedly. Why? The usual I’m afraid. His son would not stop crying. Think about that for a moment. Think about that level of violence. His rage was so much over his own son’s crying that he repeatedly slammed his own skull into the face of a helpless infant. The infant has survived and is expected to recover but does have extensive facial injuries. Bentley lived in a trailer park. I’ve poked fun at people who live in trailer…

The Supreme Court recently decided you can be stopped for breaking a law that does not exist. An officer’s mistake of law can still provide reason to stop.  On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down Heien v. North Carolina. The Court ruled that an officer’s ignorance of the law or mistake of law may still be a valid basis for a police stop, if the mistake was reasonable. Heien is an appeal based on the actions of a police officer in…

    Search warrants are now required for nonconsensual DWI blood draws: Just hours ago the Court of Criminal Appeals in Texas determined that police officers must obtain a search warrant to draw blood from suspected intoxicated drivers in order to draw blood if the suspect does not consent to provide a specimen voluntarily. In State v. Villarreal, the Court of Criminal Appeals was presented with the issue of whether officers could perform nonconsensual blood draws pursuant to 1) implied consent or 2) mandatory blood-draw provisions under state law without first obtaining a warrant. In the 5-4…
