NPPA strongly condemns the Minnesota State Patrol for CNN arrests

Cops who arrest the Press Corps for no good reason need to be fired and go to jail. We cannot allow ourselves to succumb to a lawless police state.

The National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) has reviewed the video from the arrest of a CNN crew, on Friday morning, May 29, 2020, while reporting on the protests in Minneapolis. We condemn in the strongest terms the actions by the Minnesota State Patrol (MSP) in using the highly suspect "ca...

Father and Son Charged with Murder of Ahmaud Arbery | National Review

I haven’t read too much about this case so I'm coming in with limited facts and, of course, GA is not CA where I'm licensed, but here are some questions/thoughts:

Did the Dynamic Duo witness a crime to justify their intervention ostensibly to make, or consider making, a private person's arrest? If yes, was it a felony? Was dad still a credentialed law enforcement officer and if so, what duties did he have to investigate what might ostensibly be criminal activity under a reasonable suspicion standard, and would those duties (or at minimum related investigation rights) apply even if he's retired? Did he have any rights to deputize his son on the fly and what bearing would that have if any? Was there any exigency (kid jogging away?) justifying their personal intervention vis a vis just calling the police to let them - uniformed and in a marked vehicle - investigate? Did they come off reasonably in their inquiry to the kid? Who got physical first and why? Were the McTroubles lawfully armed? When, why and how were arms produced and, the clincher, was producing arms reasonable? Once the arms were produced, did the kid try to use force to take the arms? If using force to try to take the arms lawfully in possession of the McTroubles, that may or may not be justifiable; justifiable (but foolhardy) if in reasonable self defense (we'll never know the details of what the kid was thinking) or attempted robbery (a felony) if not. Did he try to flee after doing a putatively felonious act (apparently not, per the video) and is it lawful in GA to use lethal force against a fleeing felon under these murky circumstances? Not that the duo would know so that it would influence them, but perhaps informative on the kid's response (apparently he initiated actual violence and tried to take the gun per a news report I read), did the decedent have a criminal history, especially of violent crime and/or burglary?

The video I saw is unclear and does not show the events leading up to the shots fired so lots of unanswered questions in my mind. The cops must have these and more questions which (along with racism?) may be why arrests did not occur earlier. In any case, it looks bad for the white boys. Some say they essentially lynched the kid, and maybe so. The irony (karma?) is that the searing political outcry coming out of this may, in a way, be quasi-lynching them but they'll get their day in court instead of a chest full of pellets.

Gregory McMichael and his son Travis McMichael were taken into custody and booked in the Glynn County Jail.

Information on the legal status of California’s effort to make ammunition less accessible even to law abiding people.

Information on the legal status of California’s effort to make ammunition less accessible even to law abiding people.

The Honorable Federal District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez just issued an order granting a preliminary injunction in a case, Rhode v. Becerra, that challenges California’s ammunition laws as they were passed in Proposition 63 (2016) and Senate Bill 1235 (2016). Find out everything we know right now!

Chief justice's sweeping new orders on criminal cases could do more harm than good, critics say

Excerpt: “On March 23, Cantil-Sakauye suspended all jury trials in the state for two months. On Saturday, the state Judicial Council — the policy arm of the court system — approved new measures that extended the time frame during which someone who is arrested and charged with a crime must be brought before a judge for arraignment. Under the new measures, that time frame has stretched from 48 hours to seven days. The Judicial Council also extended the time frame during which a preliminary hearing must be set — from 10 days to 30 days. Under current law, if a preliminary hearing is not held within 10 days the person can be released. ‘About the worst place you can be in a ... pandemic is locked up in a jail or prison,’ said Stephen Munkelt, executive director of California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, a statewide organization of criminal defense lawyers.”

Critics say the new emergency powers handed to the state's chief justice will put inmates in peril by keeping them longer in local jails, a potential breeding ground for coronavirus

“Let every man remember that to violate the law is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the charter of his own and his children’s liberty. Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap; let it be written in primers, spelling books, and almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit; proclaimed in the legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. In short, let it become the political religion of the nation.” - Abraham Lincoln
