I honestly think this is why so many prosecutors drink heavily. After all, it goes against human nature to frame innocent people: On Dec. 5, 1984, a black man from Louisiana named Glenn Ford was convicted of murder by an all-white jury in the shooting death of a jeweler, and sentenced to death. About a […]

What a guy: A federal judge says he will not consider calling off an upcoming criminal contempt hearing against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his top deputies for failure to comply with court orders unless a settlement is reached and he’s confident Arpaio will pay money out of his own pocket. “Let me make […]

Towns will do anything to harass homeless people now. This is one of the more egregious examples I’ve seen, taking place in Portland, Oregon: This past July, a homeless Portland woman was charged with third-degree theft when she plugged her cellphone charger into an outlet on a sidewalk planter box in Old Town.

While answering questions at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, the supreme court justice said that if she had to […]

I was just talking about this on Nicole Sandler’s show. Christie was never cleared – the state legislature’s investigation was limited because they couldn’t interview everyone they wanted; they didn’t want to jeopardize the federal grand jury probe: Federal prosecutors in New Jersey have subpoenaed Gov. Chris Christie’s re-election campaign for documents relating to government […]

Is it possible to be paranoid and arrogant as hell at the same time? Sure it is, if you’re a cop. Swamp Rabbit asked me how I could say such a thing. I told him to check out the NYPD goons who turned their backs to dis New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio at […]

Really. The Florida AG is refusing to acknowledge that she LOST her countersuit? Instead, she’s claiming that court clerks get to make their own laws. She’s a rightwing bitch whose real talent is grabbing the spotlight: U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle ruled New Years Day that all Florida clerks are bound by the U.S. […]
