    When his brother-in-law was murdered by the Taliban, a Pakistani named Muhammad Islam spoke out against the terrorist organization at a memorial service, and was joined by another man named Jameel. Shortly afterward, the Taliban kidnapped both men. The Pakistani army freed them, but the Taliban tracked Jameel down in Karachi, on the other side of the country, killed him and took responsibility in a radio broadcast. Islam, knowing he too was targeted, fled to the United States in 2008, leaving behind family members who move constantly to avoid the Taliban. He entered California with a legal…

Arnold Schwarzenegger and twice by Gov.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has released the last of its scheduled summer orders lists.  The orders in these lists are generally routine, and this one is no exception.Among the most routine of orders are the denials of rehearing petitions.  There have been some cases where "rehearing" was granted to a case that was never literally heard in the first place.  That is, some cases turned away at the threshold (certiorari denied) have been taken back up after another case changed the relevant law.But when was the last time the U.S. Supreme Court decided a case after full briefing and…

The authors report that more than half of the studies they examined could not be replicated to the same effect as the original studies.  As the article mentions: The new analysis, called the Reproducibility Project and posted Thursday by Science, found no evidence of fraud or that any original study was definitively false. Rather, it concluded that the evidence for most published findings was not nearly as strong as originally claimed."Less than half -- even lower than I…

    A veteran judge from Fresno is sighing with relief after a rebuke from a state disciplinary commission for illegally getting an acquaintance released from jail after an arrest for domestic violence. Superior Court Judge James Petrucelli is relieved because he kept his job. Although Petrucelli’s actions damaged public confidence in “the objectivity and impartiality of the judiciary,” and he had three previous disciplinary violations, he has a good overall record as a judge and apparently didn’t intend to break the law or abuse his authority, the Commission on Judicial Performance said…

    As unpredictable as the courts may be, one thing you can usually count on is that Republican judicial appointeees are more likely than Democrats to side with the prosecution in criminal cases and vote to uphold convictions. Usually. But not always. When a panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco voted 2-1 Monday to uphold a drug conviction based on a government sting operation in Arizona, the majority consisted of Democratic appointees, who said the defendant had “readily agreed to participate” in a fictitious crime concocted by federal agents.

    A 29-year-old Elk Grove man is accused of beating a dog and then fleeing from police, who caught him before making a grim discovery — the dog dead inside a barbecue, according to media reports out of Sacramento. KCRA-TV reported that the case began at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, when Elk Grove police responded to a report of a man beating a small dog, which was identified as a chihuahua or a beagle or a mix of the two, in his yard. Arriving officers saw smoke in the home — the suspect had allegedly set a fire — and ordered him to come out, but he ran off briefly before being

    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - Here is the latest summary of recent news articles regarding contraband cell phones in prisons around the world. I call these periodic round up of news items, “Wireless Prison Payphone™ Briefs” because this is essentially what smuggled mobile phones in jails have become – a substitute for the current wall mounted prison payphones.

    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - A cautionary tale for prisons contemplating shelling out millions of dollars for managed access systems to jam contraband cell phones. A prison in New Zealand has spent over $11M (US) in installation and upgrades on a cellular signal jamming system that has not prevented the ongoing use of wireless devices. Taxpayers have forked out $17 million on cellphone jamming technology for prisons – but inmates continue to be caught with increasing numbers of contraband mobile phones. Despite a network blocking system designed to stop Mt Eden prisoners using…

    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…

     How often in the American public do you see the kind of explosive behavior that transpired in Roanoke Virginia yesterday, where a disgruntled former news reporter (a black man) went off the deep end and killed two of his former colleagues? Like me, I’m sure most can’t recall such a fiasco in recent memory. It’s perhaps one of the most tragic stories involving journalist we’ve seen. The killing of young Allison Parker (24) and Adam Ward (27) will undoubtedly go down as one of the most shocking murders ever captured, because the pair of television journalist were…

Bland died at a Waller Texas County Jail, new video has emerged showing exactly what happened when Texas State Trooper Brian T.

The video shockingly depicts Encinia conducting himself in an unprofessional manner, appearing to escalate the encounter with Bland, and displaying behavior that has even drawn criticism from state lawmakers who largely have concluded that Bland’s…

Depending on the surrounding circumstances of a case and other factors, a crime like assault could be bumped from a misdemeanor to a felony. Understanding how serious criminal charges can arise from circumstances is the first step in avoiding the potential…
