Posted by on Oct 26, 2020 in Featured, Other Issues | 0 comments

Though it is not clear whether the officers here were trying to conduct a “sneaky” search – one they knew to be unlawful – this decision is correct, and because the search was not valid, the evidence had to be disregarded – suppressed. Excerpts from the Article: The Supreme Court of Wisconsin held that the Court of Appeals erred when it affirmed the denial of a suppression motion because officers were not acting in...

Posted by on Oct 26, 2020 in Featured, Other Issues | 0 comments

This is just more of tRymp’s vindictive nonsense, costing taxpayers millions of dollars for his efforts to defend such a dumb move in court. His lawyers had to know before even filing that they will lose these cases – it’s a clear abuse of power! Excerpts from the Article: When the U.S. Department of Justice declared New York City, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon “anarchist jurisdictions” last month and threatened to...

Here in DE, they still are just dumping men on the street at 3 or 4 am, with nothing, and DOC does not notify anyone.  🙁  Excerpts from the Article: Independently obtained and analyzed data from April 2017 to April 2018 showed that 73 percent of all prisoners — more than 16,000 in total — were released after Philadelphia jail facilities’ cashier...
