I’m flying back to D.C. this afternoon, so there will likely be no more blogging today. Please, do chat amongst yourselves.
- The Zoopreme Court.
- Medical marijuana shop inadvertently violates zoning ordinance. So naturally the city sent the SWAT team.
- More skepticism of Shaken Baby Syndrome convictions.
- Interesting post on a wrinkle and possible double standard with the onerous Illinois wiretapping law. I don’t have the law in front of me at the moment (I’m at the airport, WiFi is spotty), but I believe there’s an exception for people who reasonably believe they’re recording criminal activity. The problem of course is that if that you can’t use video to show you weren’t doing anything criminal. And if you record on-duty cops engaging in activity you think is criminal, you do so at risk of getting hit with a felony charge.
- Feds tell local school officials they should be monitoring their students on Facebook.
- DOJ investigation finds lots of problems with the New Orleans Police Department.
- Headline of the day.
- Nassau County, New York to pay for retesting in 3,000 drug cases possibly corrupted by faulty crime lab.
- Just a Friendly Reminder: Please Shut the Hell Up.
