    A man jailed for sexually assaulting a three-year-old boy and possessing child porn is suing Nebraska's prisons system for denying him hormone therapy as he looks to start a sex change. Dillon Shadle, 23, identifies as a woman and has legally changed his name to Riley Nicole Shadle but is still listed as male by Nebraska's Department of Corrections.

    (CN) - A California man who was jailed in a case of mistaken identity and then sexually assaulted by his cellmate cannot prevail on his false imprisonment claim, a state appeals court ruled.     Valentino Bocanegra says his ordeal began when he was pulled over and mistakenly arrested by Palm Springs police in July 2011 on an outstanding warrant issued for another man.     Bocanegra said that during what began as routine traffic stop, he was cooperative with police and produced a driver's license showing his name as "Jose M. Gonzalezbocanegra."     However, the officers assumed he was "Jose Gonzales," who was then wanted for a...

    Israeli authorities said late Wednesday they had freed Mohammed Allan, a Palestinian Arab terrorist who held a two-month hunger strike in an attempt to pressure Israel to free him. "Mohammed Allan has just been released," Sivan Weizman, a spokeswoman for Israel Prisons Service, said in a message quoted by AFP. Allan's father Nasser al-Din Allan told AFP earlier that he would take his son for a hospital checkup on Thursday. Allan was arrested in November 2014 and held under a measure known as administrative detention. He first began his high-profile 65-day hunger strike in June in protest of his administrative...

    OKLAHOMA CITY — Flashing lights pierced the black of night, and the big white letters made clear it was the police. The woman pulled over was a daycare worker in her 50s headed home after playing dominoes with friends. She felt she had nothing to hide, so when the Oklahoma City officer accused her of erratic driving, she did as directed. She would later tell a judge she was splayed outside the patrol car for a pat-down and then made to lift her shirt and pull down her pants to prove she wasn't hiding anything. She described being ordered to...

    The most poisonous claim in the dominant narrative is that our criminal justice system is a product and a source of racial inequity. The drug war in particular is said to be infected by racial bias. “Mass incarceration” is allegedly destroying black communities by taking fathers away from their families and imposing crippling criminal records on released convicts. Finally, prison is condemned as a huge waste of resources. Nothing in this dominant narrative is true. Prison remains a lifetime achievement award for persistence in criminal offending. Drug enforcement is not the driving factor in the prison system, violent crime is....

    In a pig’s eye. Last week we told you about the menu change at federal prisons where pork products disappeared from the table back on October 1st. What was up with that? At the time I wondered whether it had to do with pressure from religious groups who don’t eat pork or perhaps some sort of political shenanigans between the administration and the pork industry. We don’t have all of those answers yet, but the resulting uproar spurred somebody to action and the ban on pork in prison has apparently been ended… at least in part. (Washington Post) After a...

    As the investigation into the “gross negligence” of Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified material continues, one anonymous FBI agent says she could be facing 10 years in jail under the Espionage Act. The Act, according to the FBI agent, requires one who discovers the negligence to inform superiors. In the case of the alleged mishandling of classified documents and emails, Clinton would have needed to inform her only superior, the president, and he stated last week that he was not informed. According to the Daily Mail, “Obama said flatly during a ‘60 Minutes‘ interview on Sunday that ‘No,’ he did...

But in Tuesday night’s debate, those 2016 hopefuls were out to prove that they would not be caught flat-footed again. “Black lives matter,” Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said unequivocally. “The reason those words matter is the African-American community knows that on any given day some innocent person like Sandra Bland can get into a car, and then three days later she’s going to end up dead in jail,” he added, referencing a woman whose death while in police custody...

    The Obama administration has banned bacon, pork chops, pork links, ham and all other pork products from all federal prisons. But for those concerned that the U.S. government is bending to the will of Muslim inmates, the Bureau of Prisons, which falls under the charge of the Justice Department, insists the change was made based on a survey of prisoners’ food preferences, the Washington Post reported.[snip]“In general we welcome the change because it’s facilitating the accommodation of Muslim inmates,’ said CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper. “We hope it’s not an indication of an increasing number of Muslims in the prison system.”[snip]The...

While the attempts were apparently blocked by a "threat monitoring" product that Clinton's employees connected to her network in October 2013, there was a period of more than three months from June to October 2013 when that protection had not been installed, according to a letter from Sen....

    The Justice Department is set to release about 6,000 inmates early from prison — the largest one-time release of federal prisoners — in an effort to reduce overcrowding and provide relief to drug offenders who received harsh sentences over the past three decades. The inmates from federal prisons nationwide will be set free by the department’s Bureau of Prisons between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2. Most of them will go to halfway houses and home confinement before being put on supervised release. The early release follows action by the U.S. Sentencing Commission — an independent agency that sets sentencing policies...

    Hillary Clinton's email crisis is getting worse by the day. Yesterday, a second review of her email account proved once again that the former Secretary of State did in fact store top secret, classified information on her private server. This is against the law. An FBI "A-team," with the prosecutor who took down General David Petraeus leading the way, is investigating her mishandling of classified information. In a desperate attempt to save her campaign and herself from an indictment, Clinton wrote a note on Facebook about the situation late Tuesday night (bolding is mine). I wanted you to hear this...

Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook, in an inaugural briefing for reporters, would not answer questions about the secret intelligence found by an inspector general in a sampling of emails once stored on Clinton’s unsecured server. The email system was used by the former secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

Prosecutors prevailed after a yearslong fight in which the reporter, James Risen, refused to identify his sources.

    President Obama will use his clemency power to release dozens of inmates from federal custody this week, doubling the commutations he’s granted so far and reassuring advocates that he is serious about using his executive authority to free people serving long decades for nonviolent crimes. If the president grants another 40 or so commutations as expected, he will have shortened the sentences of more prisoners than any president since Gerald Ford, who extended clemency to thousands of Vietnam draft dodgers. (Obama’s record on pardoning ex-convicts outside of prison, however, has remained stingy by historical standards.) The commutations will be granted...
