     NYPD on High Alert for Terror Attack:  The Tri-State area is on hyper-alert for the threat of a terror attack during the Fourth of July holiday as the Islamic State (ISIS) continues to actively radicalize people in the area and orders their followers to "kill the enemy" during the Ramadan holiday.  CBS New York reports that five people have been arrested in New York and New Jersey recently on terror-related charges, the latest being 23-year-old Alaa Saadeh, who is believed to be part of a group planning to detonate a pressure cooker bomb at a New York landmark.  The…

    A small newspaper in central Pennsylvania published an editorial on Monday hailing Governor Tom Wolf's statewide moratorium on the death penalty.  It begins with a quote from novelist Raymond Chandler claiming that law is not justice but rather an imperfect mechanism that randomly jets out results - sometimes we get what we call justice; sometimes naught.    The editorial proceeds by mentioning the case that led to the moratorium:  Hubert Lester Michael Jr.  Michael was convicted of the murder of 16 year old Trista Eng.  Eng had posted an ad to sell a chair,…

    The outcome of the much-covered case, highlighted in articles here and here, filed by several death row inmates in Oklahoma holds great significance for the future of California's death penalty system.  In a 5-4 decision on Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the case of Glossip v. Gross, determining that the sedative midazolam can be used in executions without violating the Eighth Amendment prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment.  Gov. Jerry Brown's administration now has 120 days to propose a new lethal injection method, as stipulated with families of murder victims in a…

  • Urging friend to drive faster can be costly

    It’s a bad idea, which can have dangerous and even fatal consequences, to encourage a friend to drive faster than the law allows. A state appeals court says it can also be expensive. The Fourth District Court of Appeal in San Diego reinstated a lawsuit this week against a woman who was a passenger in a car on a trip to a drugstore in the Riverside County town of Rubidoux on Thanksgiving Day November 2009. As they entered the street, which had a 25-mph speed limit, Hayley Meyer told her friend to speed up because it was fun driving fast over the dips in the road, the court said. The driver,

The boy, 13-year-old Redmond Collins, along with his two younger brothers, were home alone on their first day of summer vacation when a man walked in — but was scared off by their dog. “The first time, he just walked right into our house. Then, that’s when my dog scared him out and then he came back trying to bust into the house,” Collins told KGO. Collins told the station that he locked all the windows and the front door, but that the man tried to break through it. He picked up
  • ID theft includes using a borrowed passport

    10 Jun 2015 | 1:45 pm
    There’s a federal crime, called “aggravated identity theft,” that carries a mandatory two-year prison term for anyone who commits it in the course of another felony. From the title, you might think it doesn’t apply to someone who used a passport that was borrowed from someone else. But a federal appeals court said Wednesday the law is meant to punish misuse of identity documents, regardless of how they’re obtained. In a 3-0 ruling, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld the identity-theft and drug convictions of a man who tried to enter California from…

It’s tragic that opposition for such programs comes from the lobbyists and unions who represent prison guards. Professor Jana Craft from the…

    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA), in a recent FCC filing for Docket No. 12-375 (Inmate Calling Services), made the case that jails should be compensated for the costs they incur to allow inmate calling service (ICS). The FCC, in its Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (SFNPRM), proposed the elimination of the payment of site commissions as a category to correctional facilities, including jails. On January 12, 2015, NSA’s submitted a cost survey to the FCC which provided information on the cost to Sheriffs to provide…
  • Phones In Cells At NZ’s Newest Prison

    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - As we have commented before, we believe that contraband cell phones are a problem of both supply and demand. Due to the demand for cell phones in prison, there is an active and highly lucrative pipeline of supply. Most prison administrations have focused on restricting the supply of contraband cell phones through detection, jamming and search. However, like the problem of drug smuggling, without addressing the demand for contraband, the problem will never be solved. In addition to reducing the demand for, and therefore the supply of, contraband cell…

     The indictment of six Baltimore police officers who interacted  with Freddie Gray after he was arrested and died in the custody of police in the western district portion of the city, has been largely lauded by community leaders within the black community, as a step in the right direction, and a sign that the city is now moving closer to healing from public outrage over the death of yet another black man who many believe was a victim of systemic brutality by Baltimore police. The fallout from the mysterious death of Freddie Gray while in police custody mushroomed into full scale rioting…

    The highly technological society in which we live obscures the fact the we are still a very primitive species. One which continues to fall under the spell of magical beliefs and mass hysteria. Although we’d like to think we have evolved, this story which mirrors the insanity of the Salem Witch Trials shows, that perhaps, we have not. In the early 80’s a madness was brewing.

He also seems to have a hint of the same Nightingale Syndrome that his mother uses to justify her abhorrent dating behaviors. Joseph follows in her footsteps by meeting a series of strange women through his online fantasy writing group and then travelling to whatever city they’re in an attempt to start a relationship. Many of these women give him the cold shoulder, but Michelle Anderson, unfortunately, does…

This story is told through the words of the man behind the trigger, as he’s tries to make excuses and barter for his life. As with all unspeakable acts such as this we are interested in finding out why this occurred, so we take a closer look at Joseph McEnroe’s life and family.

    Willie on Death Row. Note the calendar. Here’s another strange but true case, this one courtesy of the State of Louisiana. It was on May 9, 1947 that a 17-year old black teenager walked his last mile. But not for the first time. As he took his final fifty steps from his cell to the courthouse where he’d been convicted of murder two years prior, in order to be strapped into Louisiana’s infamous portable electric chair notoriously nicknamed ‘Gruesome Gertie,’ Willie must have had a particularly rare feeling of déjà vu. Of course, it isn’t as unusual as you might think for a…

Whether it’s due to safety concerns or simply a means for teenagers to keep up with their friends, more and more parents are allowing their children to have smartphones. While some parents may see this as a means of widening the safety net, so to speak, by having the ability to be in constant contact with their children, or even going as far as to install tracking applications in order to know exactly where their child is at every moment of the day, this illusion of safety is just that.

    Common myths about BAC and DUI If you have ever been arrested for driving under the influence, you are undoubtedly aware that one of the most important pieces of evidence in the investigation is your blood alcohol content level (BAC). As you consume alcohol, your BAC will rise as the alcohol is absorbed into your blood stream and passes through your digestive tract. Your BAC may continue to rise even if your last drink was consumed two hours earlier. In California, it is a violation of Vehicle Code section 23152(b) to drive with a BAC of 0.08% or more, regardless of whether the alcohol…

Because it can sometimes take between 45 minutes and 3 hours for alcohol to be absorbed into the system, an individual’s BAC may continue to rise for some time after he is stopped and arrested.

Second, all states, even those that previously banned gay marriage, must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states because “[t]here is no lawful basis for a State to refuse to recognize a lawful same-sex marriage performed in another State on the ground of its same-sex character.” 2. The right of same sex couples to marry is now a “fundamental right.” During the 20th Century, the Supreme Court has recognized a limited number of fundamental rights based on the reasoning that no…
