To Permit Murder When One Could Have Prevented It Is Morally Wrong

On my various travels, I crossed paths with this quote. “…to permit murder when one could have prevented it is morally wrong. To allow a rape when one could have hindered it is an evil. To watch an act of cruelty to children without trying to intervene is morally inexcusable. In brief, not resisting evil is an evil of omission, and an evil of omission can be just as evil as an evil of commission. Any man who refuses to protect his wife and children against a violent intruder fails them morally” ...

Termination: Can I Petition to Remove a Dismissed Dvtro from My Record

My question involves restraining orders in the State of: California Synopsis, followed by a question: Almost eight years ago, I was separated from my wife of a long marriage. After a year of trying to work things out, I thought the best thing would be to move back and prove to her our marriage could work. She protested, wanting me to stay living across town, but still to be able to use my credit card, manage the checkbooks and live in the house by herself. I told her the house is mine as well b...

Decarceration, police accountability, transparency: Little bills worth watching

Much attention at the Texas Legislature gets paid to a handful of Big Bills in the criminal-justice world like bail reform, driver-surcharge abolition, and enacting a constitutional standard for executing people with serious mental illness or developmental disabilities. But thousands of bills get filed, including lots of smaller ones that merit attention and potential support from justice reformers. Here are just a few that caught Grits' eye in the last couple of days. In the coming weeks I'll p...

Benchmade Knives Hops In Bed With Gun Control

I stumbled on this via reddit/firearms, but David Codrea has a number of links as well.  Look at what the boys at reddit have dug up. You can Google Darlene Hooley and see here love for gun control and the Brady Center’s love for her.  So how did this all come up ? Here’s their reply to the kerfuffle. Not good enough.  Traitors. I don’t own any Benchmade knives, and never will.  There are too many good companies out there (Ka-Bar, CRKT, etc.) to give my money to traitors. How about you?

"Zion Williamson’s foot exploded through the side of his sneaker in the opening minute of Duke’s game against North Carolina, causing a knee injury that ended his night — and potentially the rest of his college basketball season."

"What shoe was it, anyway? It was the Nike PG 2.5.," says SB Nation.“The PG 2.5 is designed for the game’s most versatile players. It’s light yet strong, with a supportive strap and comfortable cushioning that responds to every fast, focused step,” reads a description on Nike’s website....Are the PG 2.5 built for a player like Williamson? Not really. The simple answer is that they’re built for Paul George, a slimmer, lighter athlete who is nearly as tall as Williamson, but weighs 65 fewer pounds...

The title of this post is the title of this new paper available via SSRN and authored by Ben Finholt, Brandon Garrett, Karima Modjadidi and Kristen Renberg.  Here is its abstract: Life without parole is “an especially harsh punishment for a juvenile,” and as the U.S. Supreme Court noted in Graham v. Florida.  The United States is the only country in the world that imposes juvenile life without parole sentences.

The Military Is Cracking Down on Immigrant Recruits. But Advocates Say It’s Ignoring a White Nationalism Problem

Civil rights advocates say the arrest of a Coast Guard lieutenant charged with planning a massive domestic terrorist attack show the military has allowed a problem with white nationalism in the ranks to fester while it focused on aggressively vetting immigrants. Since 2017, branches of the U.S. military have boosted background checks on immigrant recruits,…

Guardianship: Guardianship Objections

My question involves a person located in the state of:Ohio. I have a hearing for guardianship of my 18 year old autistic son. His biological father was not notified of the hearing because he lives out of state, but he will be notified once the hearing is over and I am granted guardianship. The court told me that his father could file an objection to the decision. I feel like I shouldn't be overly concerned even if he does because he's had no contact with him for 4 years and there is also a domes...

"The [Mueller] report is unlikely to be a dictionary-thick tome, which will disappoint some observers. But such brevity is not necessarily good news for the president."

"In fact, quite the opposite," writes Neal K. Katyal (who was Obama's acting solicitor) in the NYT.A concise Mueller report might act as a “road map” to investigation for the Democratic House of Representatives — and it might also lead to further criminal investigation by other prosecutors. A short Mueller report would mark the end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end.The report is unlikely to be lengthy by design: The special counsel regulations, which I had the privilege of drafting ...

Recap of the California Assembly Hearing on the California Consumer Privacy Act

Yesterday, the California Assembly Committee on Privacy and Consumer Protection held a hearing on the California Consumer Privacy Act. I believe this is the first legislative hearing ever on the law. The initial passage took place in a frenetic week, too short to notice a hearing; and I don’t believe there was a hearing for the technical amendments bill. About 100 people attended. Legislator attendance was so-so. Only 3 legislators stayed most of the time; and by the end, only Rep. Chau (the ch...
