1) Flying spy planes over citizens' property. "The concern is, obviously, a privacy issue, but also that the constitutional right to assemble is being chilled. We are fast approaching the time when the government will be monitoring our every move."

12) How bad does the conduct have to be for a Texas court of appeals to twice rule that it was so far out of bounds that the case must be dismissed?
13) While I don't think that it's unconstitutional, it certainly is obnoxious when jails make deals with private companies to charge outrageous fees to use the phone to call home. It's wrong to punish the inmate's mother for his sins. And I can just hear the people out there saying that Mom doesn't have to take the call from her son. Yeah, right.
14) Trekkie pedophiles?
15) DUI Blog has been having a polite discussion of the viability of MADD's claims. Methinks he cares not for these folks.
16) Why Blonde Justice thinks the runaway bride should be charged.
17) Yes, attorneys do get along with police.
