Protestors attack judicial system after incestuous rapist walks free:The Asahi Shimbun

"he was found not guilty on March 12 because the court recognized circumstances that could have misled him into believing that the woman had given her consent. The ruling said that although she was too drunk to resist him, she was able to utter words and gave no clear rejection of his actions at the time."  japan  crime  protest  jail  rape  abuse  injustice  2019  2010s  nagoya  tokyo  fukuoka  appeal  court  criminal  father  consent  violence

Should I press charges against my student? - education highschool theft | Ask MetaFilter #4440660
"Here's what 'pressing charges' would mean where I live: ...
"If they found him on a Saturday he'd be held for two days before he got to court. Then a total stranger (this is my job) would meet him in a holding cell where he be separated from everyone else by bulletproof glass. Still in the shackles. That person would tell him that she's his lawyer. His first question 95% of the time would be, is my mom here? And his lawyer doesn't know the answer to that question. The second question, again the overwhelming majority of the time, would be, when am I going to get to go home? And again his lawyer doesn't know the answer to that question."

In oral arguments for the Texas abortion case, the three female justices upend the Supreme Court’s balance of power.
"I counted two instances in which Roberts tried to get advocates to wrap up as Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor simply blew past him with more questions. There was something wonderful and symbolic about Roberts losing almost complete control over the court’s indignant women, who are just not inclined to play nice anymore."

Twitter Ordered to Release OWS Protester's Data or Be Fined for Contempt | Threat Level |
"The court ordered Twitter to release the data or hand over its confidential earnings statements from the last two quarters so the court can determine how much of a fine to levy against the company.
"Twitter wrote that Harris’ tweets are protected by the Fourth Amendment “because the government admits that it cannot publicly access them, thus establishing that Defendant maintains a reasonable expectation of privacy in his communications.” The Twitter accounts in question have been closed and are no longer publicly available.

"But even if Harris’ tweets were publicly available, Twitter points out that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that “public information which would allow law enforcement to draw mere inferences about a citizen’s thoughts and associations are entitled to Constitutional protection, thus establishing that a citizen’s substantive communications are certainly entitled to the same protection.”"

The US schools with their own police | World News | the Guardian
"Such cases are not limited to Texas. In one notorious instance in California, a school security officer broke the arm of a girl he was arresting for failing to clear up crumbs after dropping cake in the school canteen. In another incident, University of Florida campus police tasered a student for pressing Senator John Kerry with an awkward question at a debate after he had been told to shut up."
