    Several advocates are changing their stance on Daniele Watts' incendiary Facebook post: "It's like crying wolf" Civil rights leaders who initially defended Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts in her dispute with the Los Angeles Police Department are now calling on her to apologize.

"I was one that was very outspoken about it," Hutchinson said about having come to Watts' defense when her story first...

    KC Star ^ | 8-30-14
    Even before divers recovered a handcuffed man’s body from the bottom of the Lake of the Ozarks, some retired Water Patrol veterans already suspected what had gone wrong. The problem, they thought, came down to two issues: training and experience. Trooper Anthony Piercy, who arrested 20-year-old Iowan Brandon Ellingson and placed him in handcuffs minutes before he drowned, lacked enough of both on the water, they say. As evidence, they point to his use of the wrong type of life jacket for a handcuffed suspect; how he seemed, according to witnesses, to rush the arrest after one of Ellingson’s friends...

    There is something very, very wrong with the Albuquerque, New Mexico police department, and the citizens have just about had enough. Before I get into the heart of this story, I need to provide you with a little background. The Albuquerque Police Department (APD) is well known for its outrageous and inappropriate use of violence. So much so that it has been under investigation by the Department of Justice, which wrote a letter to the Mayor of Albuquerque on April 10, 2014 condemning the police force. Here’s an excerpt from the letter: Based on our investigation, we have reasonable cause...

Latoya Harris couldn't believe what was happening as she watched the officers head off with her daughter in the back seat.

    SAN DIEGO - Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner today was free to leave his downtown residential building for the first time in three months, having completed 90 days of house arrest. The period of home confinement, which included GPS monitoring, was the result of the 71-year-old's guilty pleas last fall to false imprisonment and battery, stemming from allegations of sexual harassment by three women. The improprieties led the former Democratic congressman to leave office last Aug. 30. Though no longer on house arrest, Filner remains on three years probation.

    African-American youth in Oakland, Calif. are arrested — but then not charged — at “vastly disproportionate” rates compared to others, which raises troubling questions about police interactions with some of the city’s most vulnerable young people, according to a report released this week by civil rights advocates. During a five-year period between 2008 and 2012, black children represented 29% of Oakland’s school-age population but 78% of the more than 13,680 juveniles arrested — mostly by city police — and referred to the Alameda County Probation Department, according to the study, “From Report Card to Criminal Record.” “Shockingly,” the report also...

    ST. CHARLES • The arrest Saturday afternoon of two anti-Barack Obama protesters on an Interstate 70 overpass is stirring controversy - fueled by a video of the incident circulating on the internet. The two — Marc S. Messmer, 41, of St. Charles, and Jimmy D. "Duane" Weed, 57, of Bridgeton — say that their constitutional rights were violated. "Citizens have a right to peaceably assemble," said Messmer, who was part of a series of overpass demonstrations around the country seeking the president's impeachment. "We were simply doing that. There were no laws broken." Sgt. Al Nothum, a spokesman for the...

    A few of you sent me this video, published to Youtube today, of the weekend overpass protests, this one in St. Charles, Missouri. I’m still trying to figure out what laws these protesters broke. While I wasn’t there, it seems to me the protesters were standing on public ground, not in traffic, therefor not impeding traffic. Having organized and attended many protests myself — and having worked with local law enforcement to make sure regulations (even mindlessly unnecessary ones) are met, so long as a protester isn’t standing in traffic, there isn’t an issue. Am I missing something here? Don’t...

According to Deseret News, Dodge, a regular at the Meadows Ward LDS Church in Plain City, Utah, sat in a section of pews being reserved by a family who does not usually attend the ward. “There [were] some seats that were allegedly saved, and there was a disagreement over whether they were saved or not… This continued to...

    In a 5-4 decision the Supreme Court ruled today that a potential defendant’s silence can be used against him if he is being interviewed by police but is not arrested (and read his Miranda rights) and has not verbally invoked the protection of the Fifth Amendment.Tim Lynch at the Cato Institute explains that the Salinas v. Texas case was intended to be about whether prosecutors during a trial could cast aspersions on a defendant’s silence during questioning that took place prior to arrest — prior to the defendent being told he had the right to remain silent. Instead, the Supreme...
