DUBLIN — Irish voters have resoundingly backed amending the constitution to legalize gay marriage, leaders on both sides of the Irish referendum declared Saturday after the world's first national vote on the issue.
O'Donnell ruled that his use of deadly force was constitutionally reasonable.
"I find that the state did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant Michael Brelo knowingly caused the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, because the essential element of causation was not proved for both counts," he said. "It was reasonable despite knowing now that there was no gun in the car and he was mistaken about the origin of the gunshots."
Attorneys for Brelo argued that other officers fired during the final barrage of bullets and prosecutors couldn't prove when the fatal shots were fired.
I would be an ass if I didn't understand that sex and money are compelling subjects. You would be an ass if you didn't understand that I don't want to be singled out as puerile entertainment. If you're curious, go for it! Try to keep away from nuts and bolts, and nothing too deep, too fast. Pretend I put animals to sleep for a living—not because it is a similarly sad profession, but because they are similarly touchy. No need for "Do you feel the spirit leaving the cat's body?" And if only for the sake of our mutual friends, don't ask me about STDs over food.
Then I think of the philosophical approaches known as restorative and transformative justice.
By viewing potential conflict situations with an emphasis on peacekeeping, rather than using force to punish wrongdoing, the goal is to find root causes for societal problems and seek alternatives to imprisonment as the solution. It is a cultural evolution as well as a tactic for restoring peace. What I witnessed on the western shores of Canada was a small event, but representative of a larger cultural difference in how criminal justice is understood.
To cite just one dramatic statistic, there have been a total of 75 people killed by Canadian police since 1932. In contrast, U.S. police killed 111 people in March alone.

Rob Duke's insight:
At its hearing on gay marriage, you say that America’s Supreme Court “seemed nervous about tinkering with an institution that has existed for millennia” (“Showtime for gay marriage”, May 2nd). Yet according to John Boswell’s “Christianity, Social Tolerance and Homosexuality” and “Same-Sex Unions in Pre-Modern Europe”, official ceremonies took place in the Roman Empire and early Christian era that bound men to each other. Homosexual “marriages” were sanctified by the church and homosexuality was tolerated well after Christ’s death. Homosexuality only became controversial when it was condemned during the Middle Ages.
