    Wyoming Lawmakers Push For Firing Squad: Several Wyoming senators say the time has come for the state to bring back the firing squad as a method of execution as an alternative or backup to lethal injection.  Cheryl K. Chumley of the Washington Times reports that the firing squad suggestion comes at a time when several pharmaceutical companies have scaled back or completely eliminated the production of lethal injection drugs due to pressures from anti-death penalty groups.  Utah offers the option of using a firing squad for inmates who are already on the state's death row, but not…

    The San Francisco police internal affairs unit is investigating an incident in which an officer was filmed as he apparently tried to tip a man out of his wheelchair, authorities said Wednesday. (The video is below, but contains some explicit language)   The incident happened about 4 p.m. Sunday as officers patrolling in the area of Sunnydale Avenue and Hahn Street saw a group of men arguing, said Officer Grace Gatpandan, a police spokeswoman. Four people were ultimately cited, three for alleged possession of open alcoholic beverages and one on suspicion of obstructing an officer, but the…

    Jill Leovy has this essay in the WSJ:In predominantly African-American neighborhoods of U.S. cities, far too many killers have gotten away with far too many crimes for far too long, fueling a disastrous murder epidemic. Solving these murders and other serious crimes of violence in black communities should be a top goal for law enforcement--and it deserves to take priority over much more widely discussed issues such as racial profiling and the excessive use of force by police in black neighborhoods, from Ferguson to Staten…

    As noted here and here last week, the U.S. Supreme Court declined, 5-4, to issue a stay of execution for Oklahoma murderer Charles Warner, who raped and murdered a baby. Justice Sotomayor dissented, joined by Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, and Kagan.Charles Warner is to be executed tonight. He and three other Oklahoma death row inmates filed a petition for certiorari and an application for stays of their executions, contending that Oklahoma's lethal injection protocol violates the Eighth Amendment. I believe that petitioners have made the showing necessary to obtain a stay, and dissent from the…
  • Race Huckstering at Its Finest

    I won't even try to characterize the depth of contempt for America and the extent of the guilt-mongering going on in this article from the Economic Policy Institute.  The title is, "Where Do We Go from Here:  Mass Incarceration and the Struggle for Civil Rights." So far as I can make out, its thesis is that no one, and in particular no African American, is responsible for his criminal behavior, and that it's only Jim Crow Amerika, now and forever, that causes people to be imprisoned:  Prison, you see, is merely the midwife of racist oppression.If readers think that's an…

  • “Didn’t know it was loaded” is a legal defense, court says

    Bob Egelko
    19 Jan 2015 | 5:37 pm
    “I Didn’t Know the Gun Was Loaded” was a 1949 hit by the Andrews Sisters about a pistol-packing mama who roamed the West, knocking off hombres who crossed her while successfully claiming ammunitional ignorance until she ran afoul of a sheriff and his vengeful wife. It also turns out to be a fruitful defense in California court. A 1977 state law makes it a misdemeanor crime for a driver to “knowingly permit” anyone to carry a loaded gun in a motor vehicle. Monterey County prosecutors used the law to charge and convict Michael Ray Gonzales, 27, arrested in July 2012 while driving…

    Murder is way down in the Bay Area, as The Chronicle’s Henry K. Lee reported in a front-page story this weekend that looked at the heartening numbers from 2014. But it’s not just a local trend: Across California, for reasons that aren’t well understood, annual homicides plunged 27 percent from 2004 to 2013 — from 2,394 to 1,745. That’s according to the state Department of Justice’s recent report, “Homicide in California 2013,” which gives some insight into who is doing the killing, who they are targeting, and why. The state data for 2013 shows the following: — We’re in a…

    Brazen thieves pulled off a damage-heavy heist early Monday at a Patagonia store near San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. The crash-and-grab burglary happened sometime around 3:30 a.m., when the crooks backed a U-Haul van through the front of the store at 770 North Point St., loaded it up and sped off, KGO-TV reported. The burglars ravaged the front of the store, broke through the main doors, shattered several windows and destroyed displays in the store. It was not immediately clear how much merchandise was taken or what the final damage estimate will be. Employees at the store Monday said…
  • Did CHP let impaired driver go hours before fatal crash? (video)

    Henry K. Lee
    15 Jan 2015 | 3:58 pm
    An Antioch widow is preparing for a civil trial against the California Highway Patrol, saying an officer improperly let an impaired driver with a suspended license drive off after a traffic stop, less than two hours before the motorist caused a crash that killed her husband. At issue is whether the CHP must tow and impound vehicles driven by motorists whose licenses are suspended or revoked. The widow, Rachelle DeVore, says this is the case, while the CHP says state law does not mandate that they do so in every instance. Oscar Alfaro , died trying to avoid a crash a crash caused by Thomas…

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.

He has been charged with attempted murder of a police officer.

    March 18th, 2003. Just hours before former President George W. Bush dropped the first bombs over Baghdad; shamed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein called a meeting among some of his closest confidants, including his own son – Qusay Hussein. Hussein had word that the US military was en route to Iraq with a direct order for his capture. Knowing that any accounts or assets Hussein had would be immediately seized, he ordered his son and Abid al-Haimd Mahmood, his personal assistant, to clean out the Iraqi Central Bank.

  • The Science of Field Sobriety Tests

    22 Jan 2015 | 12:25 am
    Understand the science behind DUI field sobriety tests Most people have a vague idea of what happens when the police stop a driver they suspect is under the influence of alcohol. The officer asks for the driver’s license and registration. If he smells alcohol, hears slurred speech, or sees that the driver has bloodshot or watery eyes, the officer will ask the driver to get out of the car and do three physical tasks that make up the Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST). The National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA) has researched these tests and determined that a failure…

    You have the right to refuse a breathalyzer PAS test when pulled over for DUI If you’ve been stopped on suspicion of DUI, you have the right to refuse to take a PAS test if you are over the age of 21. According to California Vehicle Code Section 23612 (5) (i)1, the officer who stopped you has the duty to inform you that the preliminary test is voluntary. But there are pros and cons to every situation, and you should be aware of what could happen to you if you refuse to take the preliminary test.

      You could have your DUI record expunged Having a DUI conviction on your record is like going through life with a weight strapped to your ankle. It may not keep you from going everywhere you want to, but it does make some parts of your life more difficult. A DUI can affect your credit, creating an extra hurdle when you need to apply for a mortgage or a student loan. It can affect your ability to get a new job or get into the school you want to attend, as many employers and admissions boards will use the conviction to reject your application. The conviction can also affect your personal…
  • Fleeing the Scene of an Accident Makes a Bad Situation Worse

    Matthew Wallin

    If you are involved in an automobile accident, regardless of who was at fault, it is important to always remain at the scene until police officers arrive to investigate. If you leave the scene of an accident, you may face serious criminal charges. This is particularly true if you were at fault in the accident and someone was injured or died. If you fled the scene, you could face felony charges. If you are suspected of killing someone as a result of a traffic collision, not only could you face charges of vehicular manslaughter, but also your sentence can be substantially “enhanced” (or…

    Jay Towns I am sad that i have to post that the bodies of Bud and June Runion have been found. The couple from Marietta, Georgia went missing after going to look at a Ford Mustang that was advertised on craigslist. Unfortunately there was no Mustang which seems more like a ploy to commit robbery. The suspect in the Runnions’ disappearance and death, 28-year-old Jay Towns, has been apprehended. The Runions’ vehicle was found submerged and their bodies were found nearby but not underwater. Here’s something that I forgot to mention in my last post. I don’t post about…

  • State Senator wants death penalty for school shooters in Indiana

    24 Jan 2015 | 4:17 pm
    Indiana State Sen. Brandt Hershman recently introduced a bill to the Indiana legislature that would make a school shooting where victims are killed an aggravating factor that would allow prosecutors to seek the death penalty. Sen. Hershman says he was influenced by the shooting of Andrew Boldt by Cody Cousins at Purdue University in 2014. After pleading guilty and showing no remorse Cousins was only sentenced to 65 years. Sen. Hershman believes this would be a deterrent to would be school shooters. “By including school shootings on the list of qualifying factors for the death, I hope it…
  • David Sparre’s death sentence upheld in Jacksonville craigslist killing

    David Sparre This week the Florida Supreme Court upheld the death sentence for David Sparre. Sparre was convicted in the brutal 2010 stabbing death of 21-year-old Tiara Pool. Sparre had met his victim through the casual encounters section of craigslist in Jacksonville, Florida. The pair had sex before Sparre stabbed her almost 90 times. Sparre was convicted and then sentenced to death for Tiara’s murder. After his sentencing Sparre sent a letter to his ex-girlfriend bragging about how he enjoyed killing Tiara. So it came as a surprise to me that an appeal of his death sentence was even…
  • More research tries to link e-cigs to formaldehyde

    24 Jan 2015 | 2:24 pm
    A letter published in the New England Journal of Medicine has tried linking e-cigs and vaping to dangerous levels of formaldehyde and much like the Japanese study before it, it exaggerates the actual danger. Once again one might be inclined to read just the headline that states ‘E-Cigarettes Can Churn Out High Levels Of Formaldehyde’, read no further and think that’s all there is to the story. Once again however the true details are buried deep within the article. From the ninth and tenth paragraphs in the article… “We simulated vaping by drawing the vapor —…
