Re: Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Excellent Federal Court Adventures

And he hired poutine. I miss poutine... although I am near Canada. I'm not going anywhere near the substance of this thread. But I miss you guys too. My fellow Canadian Tom Horne did technically hire me. In truth, a panel of AAGs from the civil litigation section hired me, and simply got rubberstam...

Mr. Cronkite also spent considerable time in Arizona supporting ASU's Cronkite School of Journalism!I am amazed.

Trayvon Martin's MURDER in Sanford, FL

But why aren't HOA's acting under color of law? They certainly do in Arizona. Their decisions can even be appealed to the Arizona Department of Administration.

Trayvon Martin's MURDER in Sanford, FL

To be a Federal crime it has to be under color of authority of state law. I.e., Zimmerman had to be vested with some official status by the state of Florida. 18 U.S.C. § 242 - Deprivation of rights under color of law Neighborhood watch is not a Florida state entity.Are you sure?

Katrina response in MS

I spent two weeks in the Gulfport region of MS, in 2008. I used vacation time I had to go, prompted by an NPR report I'd heard on the radio one day in which the reporter talked to multiple people festering in FEMA camps who had attempted or contemplated suicide...3 years after Katrina. Anyway, I'm a...

Trayvon Martin's MURDER in Sanford, FL

I guess I should be thankful for the media shitstorm that prompted the state to prosecute, then. The same shitstorm that happily spewed out complete fabrications about Zimmerman to paint him as the caricature many people insisted he was. This case wasn't about the lawyers, or how badly the prosecuti...

Trayvon Martin's MURDER in Sanford, FL

Any time a reckless killer is not even mildly punished, for the death of a child, it's an injustice. I continue to question our legal framework for media coverage of these trials, especially in our new age of social media. I suspect that if this was not a high profile case, Zimmerman would have been...

Trayvon Martin's MURDER in Sanford, FL

While I hope your prediction of a conviction is realized, 3-5 years isn't enough. The longest sentence possible would be enough. Zimmerman intentionally killed Martin after stalking him. (In my view, that's murder 1, but that wasn't charged and would have been impossible to prove.)However, I predict...

That is not clear from the statute. I don't have access to AZ case law, but I would assume a discovery rule of some sort might apply. Perhaps poutine can clear this up. Or Butterfly Lady. But in this instance, since the Defendant was arrested in July 2008 (after indictment), I can't see much to toll...

Check out this story of a Vietnam vet who heard some Hispanic youngsters pull into his driveway by accident, walked out of his house with his gun, and while the car was backing out shot the driver in the head. His lawyer claims some fear of "gangster activity" in the area, but in what's a pretty bad...
