  • Holder: Historians Will View My Tenure As ‘Golden Age’ Of Justice Dept [Video]

    Daily Caller ^ | 4/24/15 | Al Weaver
    During his farewell address to the Justice Department Friday, Attorney General Eric Holder referred to his tenure at the Department of Justice as its “golden age” and in the same mold as Robert Kennedy’s storied tenure.. Loretta Lynch will take over the department following the Senate’s 56-43 confirmation vote Thursday. HOLDER: I said earlier that when we celebrated Robert Kennedy’s 50th anniversary of his swearing in 2011, people said that was the golden age for the United States Department of Justice. Well, I think 50 years from now, maybe even sooner than that, people will look at the work you...
  • Empowering Victims of Crime through Outreach and Involvement

    American Legislator ^ | 4-23-15 | Cara Sullivan
    Crime, at its core, inflicts harm on the victim. As such, one of the primary purposes of the criminal justice system should be to repair the damage done by the crime and prevent further victimization by rehabilitating and holding accountable the offender. Yet, with the criminal justice system and reform dialogue so often focused on offenders and taxpayers, the needs of individual victims frequently go undiscussed. Although it is important to acknowledge the damage crime does to society at large, we must not forget the tremendous and often emotionally paralyzing impact crime has on the affected individuals. America’s criminal justice...

    **SNIP** EARLIER: WASHINGTON - A U.S. congressional panel will examine whether federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents divulged secrets at sex parties that Colombian drug lords may have staged to elicit sensitive information. Following revelations of misconduct by DEA agents, a senior Obama administration official told Reuters on Tuesday that DEA chief Michele Leonhart, who was grilled in a congressional hearing last week about the sex parties, was expected to step down from her post in the near future. A DEA spokesman had no immediate comment. A spokeswoman for the Republican majority at the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform...

    Judiciary Federal court: no liability for PA judge who made up criminal charge By Rachel MartinPublished April 13, 2015watchdog.org A federal court recently told a Lawrence County woman she’s simply out of luck and can’t sue local officials, including a Common Pleas judge who apparently made up a criminal charge that was used to place her on electronic monitoring. A judge has absolute civil immunity, even if the action “was in error, was done maliciously, or was in excess of his authority,” the three-judge panel ruled in its six-page opinion. Judge Thomas Piccione had ordered Lynn Van Tassel to report...

Miller was a key witness in Libby’s trial, but in her new book she has repudiated her testimony. Libby was “railroaded in his conviction” by Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald, she said in an interview on Fox News yesterday. In her book, The Story: A Reporter’s Journey, she writes that Fitzgerald cajoled her into testifying in 2007 that Libby had told her Valerie Plame, the wife of a critic...

    The White House clearly could not permit a prominent Democratic senator to tell the Israelis and the world what a bunch of jackasses they were. I’d be surprised to learn that anyone in the Obama and Holder Department of Justice even knows how to spell “justice.” On the same day it announced an indictment of New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez (D) for allegedly taking bribes and engaging in various forms of corruption, it also announced that it would not pursue a criminal contempt of Congress resolution against Lois Lerner, the member of the Internal Revenue Service at the center of...

    La Salette Journey ^ | March 18, 2015 | Paul Melanson
    In a post which may be found here, Father Robert McTeigue, SJ writes: "Very often, I hear folks speak of mercy as if it were a cancellation of justice. On this view, “justice” means, “you have to pay off your debt—or else.” “Mercy”, then, says, “About that debt—never mind!” And who wouldn’t breathe a sigh of relief when told that one’s debt has been dismissed, made irrelevant? That’s an appealing, even tempting image of justice and mercy, especially if you’ve ever been deeply in debt. Unfortunately, such a view tragically distorts justice and mercy. If left uncorrected, such a view...

     Individual Justice Or: Our Obligations to God and Neighbor  We hear about justice a lot in our culture. We hear discussions over legal justice systems, or what constitutes a just war, or a just societal order. We hear phrases like "just cause," "just desserts," and "just wage." (We also hear phrases like "just in time" and "just kidding," but those phrases have nothing to do with our present discussion, so why even bring them up?)  If you asked a group of people what the idea of "justice" conjured up in their minds, most would probably tell you it made them...

Back then there was little indication that just a few years after his crowning achievement of "ending the war" in and returning US troops from Iraq, he would send US troops right back in Iraq for the 3rd US invasion of the country in three decades, but also send out US troops across the globe, and launch the second cold war,...

    The U.S. Department of Justice secretly spies on millions of cars by gathering and storing information about motorists in order to build a national database to track movements, according to a new report in the Wall Street Journal. The database was originally used by the Drug Enforcement Administration to hunt vehicles involved in drug crimes by tracking license plates, but according to the WSJ, the program expanded to hunt for criminals sought for crimes that were non-drug related. DEA officials have been on record saying they track vehicles near the U.S.-Mexico border to help fight drug cartels, but the new...

Rice, a 12-year-old boy, died last month after he was shot by a Cleveland police officer who reportedly mistook his air gun for a real firearm. Crawford was shot and killed by police in August while holding an air rifle in a Wal-Mart.

    For decades, courts have been struggling to reconcile two conflicting theories of what constitutes unlawful discrimination. The first theory, often called “disparate treatment,” reflects the commonly understood meaning of “discrimination.” Under this theory, a government action discriminates—violates the principle of equal protection or equality under the law—if it explicitly or implicitly treats members of one race or other special group differently from others. Examples of disparate treatment include Jim Crow’s black codes, university admission caps and quotas, and policies excluding women from certain positions.The second theory, known as “disparate impact,” argues that the definition of discrimination should be much broader...

    Looters rule the streets while cars and businesses burn. Criminals repudiate with violence our American values, our justice system, and our sense of decency and decorum.

President Obama said in one sentence that we are a nation of laws, and then in a second sentence suggested that people were angry, and their reaction was understandable. How’s that, Mr. Obama? If the process was just, then the outcome was just. Why are people understandably angry at a just outcome? Does that understandable anger permit lawlessness? APTOPIX...

If you think the Grand Jury should indict officer Darren Wilson, who happens to be white, you’re most likely a racist and/or a Bolsheviki dupe. We all know the salient facts of the Ferguson shooting incident. Michael Brown, entered a convenience store, after taking a few hits from his favorite blend of herb, and perpetrated a strong arm robbery.

The process to confirm a new attorney general, which typically takes weeks, has barely begun as members of the Senate have turned their focus to the Keystone pipeline, a bill to curb the National Security Agency's powers, and dozens of lower-level administration nominees.

    The Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment VI, grants the criminally accused a right to a “speedy and public trial … by an impartial jury in the state and district where the crime shall have been committed.” The framers of the Constitution included this protection because of the brutal system in England where a person could be thrown into a dungeon without formal charges and tried before the crown without the benefit of a public trial or having people from the community hear the evidence against them. To remedy this abuse of King George’s government, the newly formed...

That Perez has a documented and repeating history of dishonesty, racialism, and radicalism shows that this administration feels unrestrained by conventional political wisdom.

So who is Tom Perez? Perez ran for Maryland attorney general in 2006. But his campaign ended when he...

James Coyle, Birmingham Alabama, murdered, 1921. You have, no doubt, heard the children’s rhyme: “Sticks and stones may break my bones...

    Former President Bill Clinton returned to his old haunts of northwestern Arkansas on Tuesday and implored college students to support Democrats at risk of losing what's left of the political power they have held since Reconstruction. Next to the building where he once taught law, Clinton challenged students at the University of Arkansas to turn out for an election without a big national race. "The polls that show us in trouble uniformly believe that younger voters who voted for president will not show up in a midterm," Clinton said.
  • Obama's Justice Department Set Up A Fake Facebook Page In This Woman’s Name

    10/07/2014 7:38:27 AM PDT · by wrhssaxensemble · 16 replies
    The Justice Department is claiming, in a little-noticed court filing, that a federal agent had the right to impersonate a young woman online by creating a Facebook page in her name without her knowledge. Government lawyers also are defending the agent’s right to scour the woman’s seized cellphone and to post photographs — including racy pictures of her and even one of her young son and niece — to the phony social media account, which the agent was using to communicate with suspected criminals. The woman, Sondra Arquiett, who then went by the name Sondra Prince, first learned her identity...

    What America needs now for the remainder of Obama’s term in office is a colorblind Attorney General. In a nation where there is a scarcity of good news, hearing Eric Holder give a farewell speech upon his announcement that he will be leaving as the Attorney General was surely welcome in some circles. I was never a fan of his because he was in my opinion always more of a politician than someone with the responsibility to enforce the laws of the nation. I first took notice of Holder when, in the pre-dawn hours of April 22, 2000, as the...

    Two Hamas operatives who set off a cycle of violence three months ago that led to more than 2,000 dead Palestinians and the devastation of much of Gaza were cornered and shot dead early Tuesday by Israeli security forces in the West Bank city of Hebron. The pair, Marwan Kawasmeh and Amar Abu-Eisha, had been in hiding since picking up three hitchhiking Israeli yeshiva students last June and shooting them to death in their car. Israeli security forces staged a massive, month-long search at the time for the three—two aged 16 and one 19—before uncovering their bodies. During the course...

Twelve-year-old David Jr. and 11-year-old Caleb were killed.</p>

    A grand jury has convened to determine what charges, if any, will be brought against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown earlier this month. Over at The New Republic, Yishai Schwartz argues that a conviction against Wilson is impossible because of Missouri's self defense laws [Snip] If Wilson isn't indicted by the grand jury or is acquitted at trial, the Brown family will most certainly file a wrongful death lawsuit. I also wouldn't be surprised if Eric Holder were to pursue a case against Wilson for federal civil rights violations. But that will...

    There’s an aspect of the Ferguson “unrest” that most people don’t get.  From the macro lens of cable news, Internet, and social media, you just can’t understand the stress of the average Ferguson citizen.  A town of under 25,000 people is besieged by protesters, hooligans, criminals, and media.  I wrote this open letter to you, the residents of Ferguson, to let you know that I understand, and to tell you that life will eventually return to normal, albeit a changed “new normal”.  This too shall pass. Dear Ferguson residents,  I sympathize with you.  I know what you’re going through, and...

    By now, probably everybody in America has heard about what happened in Ferguson, Missouri. A racist white police officer, driven by racial animus, chose a random African-American kid to harass, a confrontation which eventually resulted in the police officer shooting this unarmed kid in the back.
