    Baltimore City Stateís Attorney is calling for major changes in investigations of police misconduct. Stateís Attorney Marilyn Mosby pushes reforms for officer misconduct cases, including granting her office arrest powers. Do her proposals go too far or do they fix a broken justice system?

Itís one of several changes the stateís attorney is asking for in police misconduct cases.

    BALTIMORE | The judge who will decide the fate of a police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray on Thursday blasted city prosecutors for failing to turn over evidence that could exculpate the officer. On the opening day of the trial for Officer Caesar Goodson, Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams said that prosecutors violated Maryland court rules when they failed to turn over to the defense a discussion with Donta Allen, the second man placed inside the transport van after Gray was injured. ďIím saying you donít understand what exculpatory means.

    An FBI agent is suspected of lying about firing twice at Robert "LaVoy" Finicum and may have gotten help from four other FBI agents in covering up afterward, authorities revealed Tuesday. The bullets didn't hit Finicum and didn't contribute to his death, but now all five unnamed agents, part of an elite national unit, are under criminal investigation†by the U.S. Justice Department. Inspector General Michael Horowitz is leading the independent inquiry. The remarkable disclosure came as a team of local†investigators released findings that two state troopers shot Finicum three times in the back during the chaotic scene at a police...

    The Clinton investigation has been the elephant in the room during the Democratic presidential primary process, with audiences wondering if the former first lady could be charged with misconduct. Despite a declaration from Clinton's closest rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders - in a nationally televised debate - that Americans are 'sick and tired of reading about your damn emails' - the cloud of prosecution has hung over Clinton's campaign since early last year. 'It does give pause to Democrats who are concerned that there may be another shoe to drop down the road,' Andrew Smith, a political scientist at the University...

    CHICAGO ‚ÄĒ How do you make sure police officers are held accountable if most of their full disciplinary records are no longer available? That question is at the center of what might be the next big battle brewing over police accountability across the country, and specifically in Chicago. The recent release of videos showing deadly shootings of black citizens by white police officers in Chicago has many demanding police accountability and has led to a U.S. Department of Justice investigation into the patterns and practices of the Chicago Police Department. And now, there is a legal fight over the destruction...

    Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter has fired his top military aide for allegations of ‚Äúmisconduct,‚ÄĚ a highly unusual move prior to a formal investigation into possible misbehavior by the Army general. In a statement, Carter said that he had removed Lt. Gen. Ron Lewis from his position as senior military assistant. As his top military aide, Lewis was a right-hand advisor to Carter, providing him analysis on military issues, joining him at high-level meetings, and traveling with him on overseas missions. Carter said the Pentagon‚Äôs Inspector General would investigate the allegations against Lewis and, if necessary, the Army would take...

    OKLAHOMA CITY ‚ÄĒ Flashing lights pierced the black of night, and the big white letters made clear it was the police. The woman pulled over was a daycare worker in her 50s headed home after playing dominoes with friends. She felt she had nothing to hide, so when the Oklahoma City officer accused her of erratic driving, she did as directed. She would later tell a judge she was splayed outside the patrol car for a pat-down and then made to lift her shirt and pull down her pants to prove she wasn't hiding anything. She described being ordered to...

    Two judges had sex with women in their chambers, one with his former law students, the other with his court clerk.. A traffic court judge delegated his job to his clerk. While the judge was in chambers, the clerk heard pleas and imposed sentences. A family law court judge excoriated two parents who appeared before him as "rotten" and the mother a "train wreck" and a "liar." The judges, among 43 disciplined last year by California's Commission on Judicial Performance, received rebukes ranging from public censure or admonishment to a confidential "advisory" letter. The state watchdog agency documented the transgressions...

    The white New York police officer who choke-held unarmed Eric Garner leading to his death had earlier been sued thrice for alleged misconduct. A UN Special Rapporteur has expressed concern over a "pattern of impunity," citing two grand juries' failure to indict officers involved in the deaths of two black civilians. Last year, Darren Collins and Tommy Rice alleged in a federal court lawsuit that the officer, Daniel Pantaleo, and four other officers humiliated and unlawfully strip-searched them publicly after handcuffing them during their arrest on Staten Island the previous year, Detroit Free Press reports. The cops, who were searching...

"She's gonna be the girl who cried 'rape,' and we'll never be allowed into any frat party again," said one, a female. Jackie eventually reported the case to the school's Sexual Misconduct Board, but not to police, and the allegations went nowhere."

    A man who spent nearly four decades in prison after being convicted of murder is expected to be freed Friday after a witness confessed he lied as a boy when he told jurors he saw the deadly attack. Ricky Jackson had been seeking a new trial and sobbed loudly with his face in his hands as prosecutors dismissed his case Tuesday, The Plain Dealer reported. "I can't believe this is over," Jackson, 57, said, thanking his supporters and his attorneys from the Ohio Innocence Project.

    Today in Texas, former prosecutor and judge Ken Anderson pled guilty to intentionally failing to disclose evidence in a case that sent an innocent man, Michael Morton, to prison for the murder of his wife. When trying the case as a prosecutor, Anderson possessed evidence that may have cleared Morton, including statements from the crime's only eyewitness that Morton wasn't the culprit. Anderson sat on this evidence, and then watched Morton get convicted. While Morton remained in prison for the next 25 years, Anderson's career flourished, and he eventually became a judge. In today's deal, Anderson pled to criminal contempt,...

    The following post was written by a former research fellow in the lab of Piero Anversa to whom weíve promised confidentiality. Anversa has previously told us that he cannot comment because of an ongoing investigation. In the early 2000s, his laboratory published a series of papers regarding the regenerative qualities of bone marrow-derived and cardiac-resident ďstem cells." Those initial findings, as well as the research conducted since those early studies, have always been surrounded by controversy, as many have been unsuccessful in efforts to replicate their results. The ďHypothesisĒ was that c-kit (cd117) positive cells in the heart (or bone...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 04/22/2014 | John D. McKinnon
    More than 2,800 Internal Revenue Service employees who recently had been disciplined received performance bonuses totaling more than $2.8 million between Oct. 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2012, a government audit found. The misconduct ranged from failure to pay taxes to misuse of government travel cards, violation of official-conduct standards and fraud, according to the report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. The discipline included written reprimands, suspensions and even removal. The oversight agency said some of the conduct issues might have occurred after an employee earned a bonus. While the IRS doesn't prohibit bonuses, "providing awards to...

    Gov. Pat Quinn could be added as a defendant in a lawsuit brought by a whistleblower who claims he was fired in retaliation for calling attention to alleged financial misconduct by Chicago State President Wayne Watson. Glenn Meeks, who was vice president of administration and finance at the school, claims in the suit that he introduced himself to Quinn at a luncheon on March 25, 2013, and urged the governor to reappoint members of the universityís Board of Trustees who intended to replace Watson. Quinn did not reappoint the board members. And the next day, Watson fired Meeks. Meeksí attorney,...

    The circumstances of this suit differ dramatically from those revealed in the recent Crowley case. Vice President of Administration and Finance Glenn Meeks alleges his firing occurred because he brought a number of, unseemly at best and possibly illegal at worst, Watson practices to the attention of former Chicago State Board of Trustees Gary Rozier on October 31, 2012 and told Rozier he (Meeks) would report his concerns to the Illinois Inspector Generalís Office if the board did nothing. Ultimately, in February-March 2013, the board attempted to remove Watson from the presidency During this attempt, Meeks had a conversation with...
