    All of the serious 2020 Democratic primary candidates have some form of justice reform or prison reform on their agenda and now Bernie Sanders has joined their ranks. The Vermont Senator’s plan, while sparse on details, looks like an ambitious one. He plans on emptying half of the nation’s prison population and putting them back on the streets. He will also legalize pot and do away with all privately operated prisons. Assuming, of course, that he could get Congress to go along with any of this if he manages to get elected. (Associated Press) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders...

    At 1%, Muslims are still a small percentage of the population. But theres one place in America where they are vastly over-represented. State prisons. Take Maryland, which has an estimated 70,000 Muslims, making up over 1% of the population. But of Maryland's 18,562 prisoners, 5,084 were Muslims. That's 27.4% or over 1 in 4 prisoners. It would also mean that 1 out of 13 Muslims in Maryland may have been in a state prison. Those are startling numbers, yet they come from Muslim Advocates, an Islamist legal advocacy group. Both MAs numbers and the number of Muslims in different states...

    John McAfee of antivirus software fame has arrived in London from the Dominican Republic, where he had been detained for several days with his wife and several others for entering the Caribbean nation with a cache of weapons on his yacht, his lawyer said Friday. Authorities asked him where he wanted to go, and he decided on London, his attorney Candido Simon told Reuters. News of his arrival in the UK came two days after McAfee, 73, the eponymous founder of the PC software security giant, said on Twitter that he was released after four days of confinement along with...

    The hazing antics of two New York City high school students during a school trip stop at a New Jersey motel last year that included branding a fellow students buttocks have landed them a two year prison sentence, officials said. The students, whose names were not released because of their age, pleaded guilty earlier this month to two counts of aggravated assault, aggravated hazing and three counts of hazing, the Burlington County Prosecutors Office announced Friday. The Queens-based Francis Lewis High School students will serve their time at the New Jersey Training School in Monroe Township, prosecutors said. We believe...

    When Chelsea Manning was released from jail last week after the grand jury she was stonewalling was dismissed, I suggested that she really enjoy some hot food and sleeping in a comfortable bed because she probably wouldn’t be out for long. Well, I hope she took that advice because she’s back behind bars again. And this grand jury is just coming out of the gate and could be in business for most of the year, which means Manning could be in jail for that long as well. But the judge added a twist to the confinement this time. (ABC News)...

    Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova, long an advocate for justice to be done over the Obama-era Spygate scandal aimed at deposing POTUS Donald Trump said Tuesday night that for the first time he actually believes at least some of the co-conspirators will get some jail time. Specifically, diGenova, who served as a federal prosecutor in the D.C. district, said that fired FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan should be lawyering up big time. This is very serious business, he told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

    Hot diggity dog! Weiners out of the halfway house. For the last three months, Anthony Weiner, a former House member representing New Yorks 9th congressional district and two-time mayoral candidate failure, has been living in a halfway house in the Bronx. This was Weiners transitional living arrangement between prison and the real world. The New York Post reported the news that Weiner, 54, is ready for a new chapter in his life. But its unclear what exactly that means for a Level 1 sex offender. I hope to be able to live a life of integrity and service, he said....

    After spending more than two months in a jail cell on contempt charges, convicted traitor Chelsea Manning was released yesterday. This was not a signal that she had finally decided to cooperate and answer questions before the grand jury. Nor was it an indication that one of her attorneys’ many motions to allow her to go free had been granted. It was just the fact that the grand jury had concluded their term and been dismissed. At that point, Manning could no longer be held in jail. (Gizmodo) Chelsea Manning was released today from the Virginia jail where she spent...

    Boeing didnt share information about a problem with a cockpit safety alert for about a year before the issue drew attention with the October crash of a 737 MAX jet in Indonesia, and then gave some airlines and pilots partial and inconsistent explanations, according to industry and government officials. It was only after a second MAX accident in Ethiopia nearly five months later, these officials said, that Boeing became more forthcoming with airlines about the problem. And the company didnt publicly disclose the software error behind the problem for another six weeks, in the interim leaving the flying public and,...

    They say the wheels of justice grind slowly, but that’s primarily in the United States. Over in Great Britain, they’re apparently capable of moving at lightning speed when the need arises. Less than three weeks after being dragged out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London and arrested, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been convicted and sentenced to fifty weeks in jail on a failure to appear charge after he skipped bail in 2012. Man… that was fast. (NBC News) WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was sentenced by a British judge on Wednesday to 50 weeks in prison for skipping bail...
