Implied License for Differential Treatment

The interaction between law enforcement and notions of privacy in the security of our homes has always been a special focus of s. 8 Charter rights. The treatment of the home as a special place in the law was described by Justice Binnie in R. v. Tessling as a nuanced hierarchy protecting privacy of places, used to evaluate the reasonableness of a person’s expectation of privacy. This privacy interest is not absolute, and although the “dwelling house” enjoys the greatest expectation of privacy, th...

Whicker: JaMychal Green fits right into the Clippers’ sharp-toothed ethic

LOS ANGELES — Lawler’s Law was imposed at approximately 2:15 p.m. PST Sunday. The Clippers saw an exposed neck and they stepped on it. They needed only 9:20 to grab a 32-12 lead over  the lottery-loving New York Knicks. They led 82-44 at half. With 41 seconds left in the third quarter Lou Williams scored the 100th and 101st points, and Hall of Fame-bound broadcaster Ralph Lawler enforced The Law, which means that any team wins when it gets to 100 first. There once was a time when the NBA Finals ...

Renewed Push For Constitutional Carry In South Carolina

News from South Carolina: COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – Brad O’Neil is the part-owner of the Gun Vault in Pontiac. He said he doesn’t see anything wrong with the renewed push for permit-less carry or ‘constitutional carry’ in South Carolina. “The Constitution states the right to keep and bear arms. Which in itself means you can keep and bear arms,” O’Neil said. There are bills filed at the State House that would allow anyone who can legally purchase a gun, to carry it on public places...

Uroczysko Baran: Forgotten Soviet Massacre of Poles Who Fought Against The Nazis

Via WRSA, this report is interesting and bracing, and I confess it’s a part of history I have never studied enough. Between October of 1944 and January of 1945, when the Second World War has not yet finished, a military court attached to the Second Polish People’s Army is formed, akin to the Soviets. The court, chaired by a Red Army veteran, Colonel Stefan Piekarski, and under the supervision of Soviet Colonel Aleksander Tomaszewski, condemns 144 prisoners; of them, 61 of them are condemned to d...

Senate Bill 150, backed by the National Rifle Association, will now head to Governor Matt Bevin’s desk after a 60-37 vote in the House.

Gun Control: Communists Will Be Communists

News from Russia: In the Tagansky District of Moscow, the police detained a 67-year-old woman, from whom they seized a pistol with live ammunition.

The investigating bodies initiated a c...

Reviewing the modern reality of robust conservative support for criminal justice reform

Long-time readers know I have been talking for a very long time about a possible "new right" on a range of sentencing and corrections issues.  This post way back in January 2005 asked "Is there a 'new right' on criminal sentencing issues?" and explained why principled modern conservatives should be troubled by mass incarceration, and this post in November 2010 wondered "When and how will state GOP leaders start cutting expensive criminal justice programming?".  But, happily, it is no longer cu...

"What does a rat look like when he’s listening to himself being a rat in a room full of people who know he’s a rat..."?

I have another passage from Tom Wolfe's "Bonfire of the Vanities" (for those of you who've been reading along with me). This is  97% of the way through the book, the main character Sherman McCoy is listening as a tape he made is played in the judge's chambers. The point of view shifts, in the end of the first paragraph, from Sherman to the prosecutor (Kramer):In this sad moldering little room were seven other men, seven other organisms, hundreds of pounds of tissue and bone, breathing, pumping b...

Time for Comic Relief to hang up its red nose? | Letters

Guardian readers respond to David Lammy’s criticisms of ‘white saviour’ narratives in charity publicityIt concerns me that some 30 years after Save the Children first published a set of image guidelines to steer its staff in avoiding negative use of imagery, and to start a dialogue in the aid sector about negative aspects of imagery in use, it’s still a thorny topic (‘White saviours’ belong in the past. We need new storytellers, 1 March). I joined Save the Children as the photographic librarian ...

In the Philippines they think about gender differently. We could too

The labels we give ourselves can be helpful but restrictive too. Let’s embrace diversity by celebrating fluid identities We were excited young filmmakers, sitting in one of our first pitch sessions, a panel of executives lined up against us.

Then the question dropped: “Which one of you is the alphabet person?”I realised I was the only one holding my hand in t...
