F**k Habeas Corpus - Supreme Court Decision

"

Published on Jun 12, 2012 by TheYoungTurks

"The Supreme Court's decision on Monday not to hear appeals from a group of Gitmo detainees leaves the remaining 169 detainees at the facility with little chance of securing their freedom through US courts...Civil-libertarian groups say that essentially leaves detainees at Gitmo with habeas rights in name only, since the rules make it virtually impossible for detainees to win in court...".* Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur break it down on The Young Turks.

New York City mayor opposes new oversight of police 
By Chris Francescani 
Wed Jun 13, 2012 6:14pm EDT 

(Reuters) - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will oppose planned legislation to create independent oversight of the New York Police Department, a measure introduced by city lawmakers as the NYPD comes under growing criticism for controversial policies. 

Two members of the City Council introduced legislation on Wednesday that would create the position of inspector general, an independent auditor with subpoena power and broad investigative authority to monitor the 35,000-member NYPD. The measure has found support among civil libertarians. 

"If you can have an inspector general at the FBI and the CIA, why can't you have an inspector general at the NYPD?" said Councilman Jumaane Williams, a co-sponsor of the proposed bill.

A Robbery of a Different Kind | Eric Peters Autos

A Robbery of a Different Kind | Eric Peters Autos | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

Most people don’t see what’s coming because they view things in a limited way. The cops in Aurora were only trying to get their man, they will tell you. Such tactics would never be used against innocent people. It never occurs to them that in fact such tactics have already been used against innocent people. 40 of them, in fact. Not one of the 40 Accosted had to rob a bank – or even jaywalk – to be treated just the same as if they had robbed a bank. Just as we are treated as presumptive drunks at “sobriety checkpoints” – and just as we are treated as presumptive terrorists by the TSA.

What, then, will prevent the Boys in Blue from treating anyone they wish to as a “criminal” – given that it is no longer necessary for them to even pretend that us anyones have done anything at all?

Innocence itself is no longer a defense.

Occupy Wall Street 'troublemakers' allowed to bring suit against NYPD

Occupy Wall Street 'troublemakers' allowed to bring suit against NYPD | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

On October 1, 2011, during Occupy Wall Street's very first real confrontation with police, 700 Occupy demonstrators were arrested because they were walking on the roadway of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Why the protesters left the walkway for the roadway has always been in question. Did the police wrongly arrest hundreds of Occupy protesters by allowing them or even leading them onto the bridge roadway only to block them, surround them with orange netting, arrest them and cart them off to jail? Or did the protesters leave the pedestrian walkway for the roadway knowing full well they could end up in behind bars.
