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."

Court rulings couldn’t protect everyone detained because of Trump’s immigration order.
"It seems that even within the same administration, alternative facts abound.
"The smug cruelty of the DHS statement that 'yesterday, less than one percent of the more than 325,000 international air travelers who arrive every day were inconvenienced while enhanced security measures were implemented' transcends belief as applied to actual people left in horrific limbo."

The R.U. Sirius Interview: It’s Better to be Inspired than Wired | Lebkowsky | CTheory
"Cyberculture (a meme that I'm at least partly responsible for generating, incidentally) has emerged as a gleeful apologist for this kill-the-poor trajectory of the Republican revolution. You find it all over Wired - this mix of chaos theory and biological modeling that is somehow interpreted as scientific proof of the need to devolve and decentralize the social welfare state while also deregulating and empowering the powerful, autocratic, multinational corporations. You've basically got the breakdown of nation states into global economies simultaneous with the atomization of individuals or their balkanization into disconnected sub-groups, because digital technology conflates space while decentralizing communication and attention. The result is a clear playing field for a mutating corporate oligarchy, which is what we have. I mean, people think it's really liberating because the old industrial ruling class has been liquefied and it's possible for young players to amass extraordinary instant dynasties. But it's savage and inhuman. Maybe the wired elite think that's hip. But then don't go around crying about crime in the streets or pretending to be concerned with ethics."  interview  1996  1990s  r.u._sirius  technology  wired  internet  corporation  power  corruption  society  politics  humanity  republican  theory  1989  1980s  mondo_2000  ethics  communication  jon_lebkowsky  quote  oligarchy  injustice

Leila de Lima: The woman who dares to defy Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte - BBC News
"Already known for being an outspoken advocate of 'justice without fear or favour,' she launched an investigation into allegations that then mayor Rodrigo Duterte was running death squads in Davao in his popular anti-crime campaign.
"She continues to campaign against the reintroduction of the death penalty. This month she was honoured by the US publication Foreign Policy as one of its top Global Thinkers of 2016, for her willingness to 'stand up to an extremist leader'."

Why You Won’t Get Your Day in Court | by Jed S. Rakoff | The New York Review of Books

"The provision of legal services has never operated according to free-market principles.
"between 1985 and 2012 the average billing rate for law firm partners in the US increased from $112 per hour to $536 per hour, and for associate lawyers from $79 per hour to $370 per hour. These billing rates increased at more than three times the rate of inflation during the same period.
"The result is not only that a very large number of Americans who go to court, or are hauled into court, are unrepresented by counsel, but also that an unknown but probably even larger number of Americans who might otherwise seek legal redress for wrongs done to them simply cannot afford a lawyer and choose instead to forgo justice altogether."  jed_s_rakoff  law  lawsuit  legal  money  america  injustice  foreclosure  nyc  housing  recession  2016  2010s  economy  labor  union  trial  supreme_court

The List - The New Yorker
“High school was bliss for me,” DuBuc said recently. “I tried not to dwell on the stuff that wasn’t good.” But, as she was about to start her freshman year at Western Michigan University, she got a call from a close childhood friend, Victoria, who asked, “Did you know you’re on the public sex-offender registry?”


The [Texas sex offender treatment] plan also included a monthly polygraph ($150) and a computerized test that measured how long his eyes lingered on deviant imagery ($325). He would also have to submit to a “penile plethysmograph,” or PPG. ... Metts would be billed around $200 per test.


The prosecutor pushed for two years in prison... Metts’s attorney urged alternatives that would be less costly for taxpayers. None of Metts’s violations, he noted, had any connection to the original charges of sexual assault of a child. A typical mistake was failing to charge his ankle bracelet’s battery. The judge took some time to think it over. The next morning, she sentenced Metts to ten years in prison.

Tamir Rice family attorney says expert reports have 'tainted grand jury process' | US news | The Guardian
RT : New: Expert who wrote Tamir Rice report publicly suggested officer was justified before he was asked to review case

"On Monday Chandra, the Rice family attorney, accused McGinty of 'making no effort to secure justice' for Tamir and said that the boy’s mother, Samaria, thought the prosecutor should step aside to allow outside authorities to take charge of the case.

“'Ms Rice has always been wary of the prosecutor but gave him the benefit of the doubt,' he said. 'But she now believes that because he has tainted the process, a special prosecutor would be best.'"

Son of Baldwin – **********SIGNAL BOOST! PLEASE...
@MichaelAWoodJr details "policing that is corrupt, intentional or not"

sonofbaldwin: "When good cops go to their superiors with what they’ve seen, their superiors retaliate by suppressing the truth and leaking to the entire department that the officer is a 'snitch' (police officers are the originators of snitch culture).... In turn, the other police officers take revenge by not responding to the 'good' cop’s calls for help when they are out in the field. They alienate and abuse 'good' cops until they have no choice but to leave the force–that is, if they aren’t set up to be murdered."
