My first byline in the LA Times.
Bit by bit, the federal judiciary is tearing out the legal ground from under "America's toughest sheriff."

Can we ever really get away from the past? Rasema Handanovic tried. I tried to trace her story from Bosnia after the war and the man tasked with catching her. This is the result.
A Portland-based Homeland Security investigator tracked a suspected Bosnian fugitive for months—only to find the arrest spawned as many mysteries as it solved.

This was a fun one on Tuesday: Oregon's hot day was roundly mocked, but we endured.

Busy one yesterday: In Oregon City, the police department defended its decision to leave a wounded officer in an area where he was ambushed for 90 minutes because they presumed he was dead.

In the Pacific Northwest, "The Family," a loose assembly of animal-rights and environmental activists is remembered for the fires they set and the questions they raised. On Monday, one of their last remaining members, on the run for half a decade, was sentenced to prison.

Are you as surprised as I am that Twitter's going to try to win back developers with new app dev platform?
Twitter is preparing a push to mend fences with app developers, with the hopes of embedding itself into more mobile apps and collecting deeper data on mobile users. The company plans to unveil a new app development platform called “Twitter Fabric” that contains tools for developers to help people sign up for their apps more easily, sell ads on them, uncover technical glitches and view other analytics.

The thing that struck me yesterday at the scene of an Oregon high school shooting was the clusters of cars of parents waiting for students to be checked and released. It was haphazard and even dangerous, but it was one of the images (along with a stack of backpacks at Reynolds High School) that stuck with me. We led with it here:
They stopped in fire lanes, on medians, in spaces so tight one man wedged his sedan between two cars and climbed out of his sun roof. They double-, triple- or quadruple-parked, spilling into driveways and crosswalks, disregarding every traffic law. The loved ones of the children at Reynolds...

Police officers in a traffic stop will usually ask you this, among several questions: "Is there anything in the vehicle that we should be concerned about?"
