What a long, strange trip it's been for pot legalization in Colorado. First, the law came under fire last year for not protecting youth as scores of children were taken to emergency rooms after ingesting their parents' pot edibles. Just a few days ago, nine former heads...
On Saturday a video of an Al-Shabaab leader calling for attacks on shopping malls was released. The narrator specifically called out for attacks on the Mall Of America.

The FBI announced on Thursday that it has launched an investigation into this week’s triple-homicide in Chapel Hill, N.C. The local police there say the slayings of three Muslim-American students were likely the result of the suspected killer’s rage over an ongoing parking dispute.

A San Francisco man who smashed an Uber driver’s windshield by hurling a skateboard into the moving Prius was acquitted at trial by a jury that found he acted in self-defense, the city public defender’s office said. [...] testimony from the defendant and cell phone video that appeared to back up his account of the confrontation, led to his acquittal Friday, his attorney said. “As a crime victim, Mr. Knaak deserved every bit of the police response and protection that would have been afforded to
Rob Duke's insight:
Another example of a case that could have benefited from some dispute resolution skills on the part of the officer(s).
In some cases, officers should take a coach role and act as nothing more than a mediator; but in other cases like this one, the officer may be tasked with a med-arbitrator role where ultimately he or she will be forced to make a decision one way or the other.
This post first appeared at Campaign for America’s Future. (AP Photo/Lisa Poole) We talk a good game about opportunity in this country, but here are three signs that we’re failing to provide young people a fair shot at prosperity.
A few weeks ago, The Chronicle of Social Change began "Positive Youth Justice: Curbing Crime, Building Assets," a series that imagines an entire continuum of juvenile justice services built on the positive youth development framework. We accomplish the "creation" of that continuu
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi Arabia's morality police detained a group of young men for dancing at a birthday party and referred them to prosecutors, according to a state-linked media report. The news website Ayn al-Youm reported Saturday that the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and...
Indirect reciprocity means that my behavior towards you also depends on what you have done to others. Indirect reciprocity is associated with the evolution of social intelligence and human language. Most approaches to indirect reciprocity assume obligatory interactions, but here we explore optional interactions.

Last school year, the number of suspensions in Pittsburgh Public Schools dropped 15 percent over the prior year, but still more than 9,900 suspensions were issued, nearly three-fourths of them to black students. Those who want to “stop the pushout” say the numbers are still too high and are calling on the community, students, teachers and the district to help bring the numbers down. Great Public Schools — Pittsburgh, the Education Law Center and the Center for Third World Organizing are working
"Putting courts into politics, and compelling judges to become politicians, in many jurisdictions has almost destroyed the traditional respect for the bench," one commentator famously wrote on the causes of popular dissatisfaction with the administration of justice. And this was back in 1906. For most of the century since that time, lawyers, judges, law professors, and other court reformers have wrestled with the problem of how to select judges in a way that remains consistent with American democratic traditions and still obeys the popular will.
Currently, there are six methods of selecting judges, each variations on three basic models: appointment, election, and a third idea--"merit selection" that has been the major "reform" alternative of this century. First conceived in 1913, but not adopted in any form by a U.S. state until Missouri voted for it in 1940, merit selection, one observer remarked, "did not immediately sweep the country." This is an understatement: The next state to follow Missouri was Alaska in 1956, and this was after New Mexico only mustered 37.1% of its voters in a failed bid to adopt the reform. Over the next several decades, at least ten different states failed to get more than 50% of its voters to support "merit selection" when it appeared on the ballot.
What are the merits of merit selection? What can be learned from one states' attempt--Texas'--to try to reform its manner of judicial selection? If the nineteenth century saw the undoing of the Founding Fathers' vision of an appointed judiciary, and the twentieth century has been dominated by debate over the merit selection reform, what will be the shape or nature of reform in the new millenium?
