  • Wisconsin AG Fights to Keep Brendan Dassey Locked Up

    10/20/2016 3:01:53 PM PDT · by BBell · 2 replies ^ | 10/20/16 | Alberto Luperon
    Will convicted killer Brendan Dassey go free? Not if the Wisconsin Attorney General’s Office wins their appeal against his petition for a writ of habeas corpus. On Wednesday, they filed their opening brief in Dassey v. Dittman in a bid to keep him locked up.A federal judge overturned Dassey’s conviction in August, saying that his videotaped confession to the 2005 murder of photojournalist Teresa Halbach was “involuntary” under the Fifth and Fourteen Amendments. But the AG is now requesting an oral argument, and a chance to prove that police did everything legit. They maintain that he fessed up to his...

  • Homicide detective's book describes 'How the Police Generate False Confessions'

    10/20/2016 2:12:03 PM PDT · by BBell · 22 replies
    If you have an interest in fairness, justice and preventing wrongful convictions, then the new book "How the Police Generate False Confessions," by former Washington, D.C., homicide detective James Trainum is an important read. It takes you inside the interrogation room to see how investigators extract admissions from innocent people, and how the justice system can fix this persistent problem, seen in high profile cases such as the Central Park Five, the Norfolk Four and the teenaged suspect from Wisconsin in the Netflix series "Making a Murderer." It's a phenomenon that remains, understandably, incomprehensible to many. Someone "admits" to a...

    pcworld ^ | 10/20/2016 | mark hachman
    Microsoft Japan, in conjunction with cosmetics supplier Shiseido, has developed TeleBeauty, an app that applies virtual makeup—with styles ranging from “cool” to “trendy”—over a face. TeleBeauty uses the laptop’s camera to superimpose the makeup scheme as the woman (or a man, though the app seems aimed at women) conducts a Skype for Business call. ... Shiseido encourages women to explore the app’s settings: “Go natural, for everyday meetings”, or “bold, to get undivided attention,” or even “trendy, to pitch a new idea.” To the untrained eye, it’s not quite clear where the app actually applies the virtual makeup, however.

    Like clockwork, every September the entire tech world gets excited for the newest Apple device. The combination of a premium build, unmatched system performance, and tightly integrated software and services delivers what’s considered to be the gold standard in smartphone user experience. Over the past five years, Apple’s modem supplier was Qualcomm, but this year, Apple has taken a different approach with the decision to source two instead of one baseband chipset suppliers: Qualcomm and Intel. This created two distinct RF SKUs, one limited to GSM/WCDMA/LTE support (A1778, A1784), powered by Intel’s modem, and one with GSM/CDMA/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/LTE support (A1660,...

    It is unclear if NATO aircraft were involved in helping secure Gaddafi's capture by Libyan forces on the ground. A group of rebels approached the pipe where Gaddafi was hiding and ordered him to come out, which he did, albeit slowly. He was then dragged up to his feet as rebels shouted "Muammar, Muammar!" Gaddafi was killed shortly afterwards. There are conflicting reports; according to one report, Gaddafi said "Please don't shoot!" prior to being shot, and when questioned by Misratan rebel fighters about the damage done to Misrata by his forces, denied any involvement, and begged his captors not...

    DENVER — Life on Earth got into the shell game more than 200 million years earlier than previously thought. Fossilized eukaryotes — complex life-forms that include animals and plants — discovered in Canada are decked out in armorlike layers of mineral plates, paleobiologist Phoebe Cohen said September 27 at the Geological Society of America’s annual meeting. At about 809 million years old, the find is the oldest evidence of organisms controlling the formation of minerals, a process called biomineralization. ********* The mineral plates themselves are odd. Most modern microbes make shells out of calcium carbonate, but the ancient shells are...

    Before the signing of the USA Freedom Act in June 2015, one of the NSA's most controversial programs was the mass collection of telephonic metadata from millions of Americans — the information about calls, including the telephone numbers involved, the time and the duration but not the calls' content — under a broad interpretation of the Patriot Act's Section 215. From this large "haystack," as officials have called it, NSA analysts could get approval to run queries on specific numbers purportedly linked to international terrorism investigations. The problem for the NSA was that the haystack was only about 30 percent...

    French President Francois Hollande has suggested the rise of ISIS can be attributed to Barack Obama not backing his calls for Syrian air strikes back in 2013. Since then, France has been victim to a string of savage Islamic State terror attacks and the President insisted too many migrants were being let into the country. 'I don't know what would have happened if we had carried out strikes. What I can say is that we did not carry out strikes, and there's Daesh,' he said, referring to ISIS by its Arabic acronym.

The report, written by former White House Aide Roger Stone, who served in the Nixon administration, insists Bill’s drug problems started in the 1970s as Governor of Arkansas, and continued throughout the early 1990s. In fact, it’s likely drugs played a major role in why he dropped out of the Presidential race in 1987, as his handlers wanted to “clean him up” for future campaigns. They knew he would...

Or rather the Democratic presidential candidate's white Ralph Lauren pantsuit sent the message. Clinton has worn Ralph Lauren's designs often since kicking off her campaign. For example, she wore a cobalt blue Ralph Lauren suit for the campaign's opening rally last year in New York City. But it's her choice of color -- not designer -- that's significant. "The choice of a white suit for Wednesday’s debate harkened back to the not-so-distant past, when...

Greer then called police, who arrived to find the woman still handcuffed. After running a record check, police discovered Greer had an outstanding felony burglary warrant for her arrest out of El Dorado County. Police then took Greer to a nearby...
