Julian Heicklen is a man I admire in a way that my mastery of the English language fails to find words for. Julian was a dedicated activist, whose focus was on fully informed juries. Julian stood near courthouses and distributed literature explaining to juries their right to nullify bad laws, and free victims of uncontrolled government. He has been arrested for this "crime" in at least 5 states, at least 11 times in Manhattan alone.Read more »
John Edwards, the former vice-presidential candidate who wrecked his political career with an extramarital affair, walked free from court on Thursday after a chaotic end to a month-long trial for using campaign funds to cover up his infidelity. After nine days of deliberations, the jury was only able to reach a verdict on one count, declaring him not guilty of accepting illegal campaign contributions from supporter Rachel "Bunny" Mellon in 2008.

While the most common forms of prosecutorial misconduct are hiding exculpatory evidence and engaging in improper examination and argumentation, another form of intentional misconduct is the knowing use of false testimony to win convictions.
Former Palm Beach County Deputy Mark Dougan was a law enforcement officer that upheld the oath he took to support and defend the Constitution of the State of Florida and the United States. That’s why, according to Dougan, “all hell broke loose” when he refused an order to commit felony misconduct. Dougan soon resigned.

Massachusetts department of transportation handed out about 900 speeding tickets on a newly created stretch of road. The issue is that they did not follow their own laws around setting speed limits and enforcing them.
They have publicly admitted to the tickets being illegal and unenforceable, but when asked about possible refunds, they basically told the media that you would have to take them to court if you want your money back.
the illegality is due to the the state not performing an engineering study to determine the maximum safe speed for the stretch of road.Read more »
One of the better news agencies in Austin has some choice footage showing state legislators casting votes in the place of colleagues who might not even be in the building. Hypocritically, this happened even as the state legislature itself passed laws criminalizing regular folks who vote on behalf another person in general and primary elections. The best part? While the speaker of the House acknowledges that this practice violates the rules of the legislature, but chooses not to enforce the rule.Read more »
