Fingerprint Source Identity Lacks Scientific Basis for Legal Certainty | AAAS - The World's Largest General Scientific Society
“This evaluation is intended to point out where forensic practice is well founded in science and where it is not and to produce a research agenda to serve as the basis for arriving at forensic methods that will inspire greater confidence in our criminal justice system,” says the report, the second of two AAAS reports on the state of forensic science, the first focusing on the quality of fire investigations in the United States.

FROM THE NEWSROOM: Police posed a greater danger to journalists than demonstrators in St. Louis | From the Newsroom | columbiamissourian.com
Our hands were immediately zip-tied tightly behind our backs, and I was unable to breathe or remove my helmet. I tried in vain to choke out the words — “I can’t breathe.” A photographer next to me noticed and loudly said to an officer behind us, “You need to take off his helmet, he’s choking.” The officer looked at him, then at me, and said “I can’t hear you” and walked away.

I was eventually able to use the wall next to me to nudge my helmet back onto my head. Now able to speak, I turned to the officer in charge and asked, “Am I under arrest?” His reply was: “Shut up, mother------.”

Oakland Police Chief Kirkpatrick Points Blame at Ex-Chief Whent for Mishandling of Celeste Guap Sex Crimes Case | East Bay Express
At a League of Women Voters event last night, Oakland Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick gave her account of why she chose to go ahead with two controversial promotions of officers who mishandled the internal investigations of the Celeste Guap sex crime scandal.

In short, she blamed former Chief Sean Whent for screwing up the Guap cases — not the officers she promoted.

The chief's comments also appear to contradict an official court report that spells out in detail the several ways in which the officers she promoted failed to properly supervise criminal investigations of Oakland cops who sexually exploited Celeste Guap.

Kirkpatrick began with a point she's previously made: that the promotions had been reviewed by federal court-appointed police monitor Robert Warshaw. Warshaw signed off specifically on the promotion of Deputy Chief John Lois to the rank of assistant police chief and Lt. Roland Holmgren to the rank of captain.

Sem City Gang Members Charged With Racketeering Conspiracy, Attempted Murder, Assault With A Deadly Weapon, And Maiming

OAKLAND - A nine-count federal indictment charging four members of the Sem City gang was returned by the Grand Jury yesterday and unsealed today in federal court, announced United States Attorney Melinda Haag.

All four defendants, listed below, are in state custody and will be transferred into federal custody:

DAMIEN EDWARD MCDANIEL, a/k/a “Famous,” “Lil’ Dame,” and
JOSEPH PENNYMON, a/k/a “Junkie.”
All four defendants, Oakland residents, are charged with a racketeering conspiracy, attempted murder in aid of racketeering, assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering, maiming in aid of racketeering, and discharge of a firearm in furtherance of those crimes of violence. Three of the four defendants are also charged with a second count of assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering and discharge of a firearm in furtherance of the same. Each defendant faces a maximum term of imprisonment of life.

According to the Indictment, Sem City is a violent street gang based in the Seminary neighborhood of East Oakland. Members of Sem City engaged in criminal activity, including attempted murder, assault, robbery, narcotics distribution, pimping of minors, illegal firearms possession, and credit card fraud. Additionally, members of Sem City are expected to engage in acts of violence to protect the name, reputation, and status of the gang.

Federal prosecutor struggles to describe stingray use in attempted murder case | Ars Technica
the Wednesday hearing may prove to be a crucial one in the ongoing case of United States v. Ellis, where four men are charged with the 2013 attempted murder of local police officer Eric Karsseboom in a parking area near an East Oakland apartment complex. (One of those men, Damien McDaniel, pleaded guilty earlier this year.)

This case has now been running for over three-and-a-half years, and it may finally be entering a new phase: the judge could call for an evidentiary hearing where the intricacies of the stingray are more fully explored. In turn, that could pave the way for a firm trial date or plea deals (which Alioto said remain on the table). Either way, the court's next ruling likely will bring United States v. Ellis closer to its conclusion.


Ellis has provided rare insight into how the stingray is used in practice to find suspects and the seeming lengths the government is willing to go to keep it quiet. The surveillance tool has come under increasing scrutiny by lawmakers and activists in recent years. Since this case began, the Department of Justice, which oversees the FBI, and the State of California now require a warrant when a stingray is used in most circumstances.

Ashes To Ashes: The End – Life of Wylie
DIXON Of Dock Green provided the black and white postscript to the last ever episode of Ashes To Ashes.
“So it was all sorted out in the end. And no bones broken, luckily,” said a reassuring PC George Dixon.
It was, after all, only a TV show. But a very special one.
Time for supper and then up those stairs to bed.
A fitting farewell for a drama many obsessed over, with online fan forum The Railway Arms going into meltdown after each episode was screened.
The final emotional hour revealed almost all about DCI Gene Hunt and his world but left just enough ambiguity to keep those web servers humming for some time to come.
If you’ve yet to see the Ashes’ farewell, which finished a few minutes ago, do NOT read any further.
