The New York Times reports what I think has been apparent for a while now: the conservatives on the Supreme Court are eying a repeal of the exclusionary rule.
Scott Henson asks, “Since the state bar won’t discipline them, there’s no criminal sanction for withholding evidence, and the US Supreme Court has ruled that they carry no civil liability, what should happen to prosecutors who cheat to get a conviction?” Good question.
Why we need cynics.
Another good question: “Why can’t Playboy think about greed the same way it thinks about lust?”
Sigh. They grow up so fast. Why, it seems like only last year that we were lamenting that Google was being put in a position where it had to open up a Washington office, just to play defense. Wait. It was last year. Didn’t take long for them to learn how to play offense, did it?
