Convicted felon, Bernard Kerik, shares his new perspective of the #criminaljustice  system after experiencing it from the other side of the bars. Does his story highlight the need for criminal justice reform?

#federal  appeals court rules that police may not search an individual's stored cell phone location records without a warrant. It's not often that we see definitive ruling in the grey area of digital privacy.

A change for the better - without treating the root cause, drug addiction will continue to be a problem. Thanks for sharing, +Gregory Oberhauser. 
Experts say the recent attention to drug overdoses is only the continuation of a gradual shift in public opinion and public policy relating to drug addiction. In the past, addicts were often viewed as junkies, and attention focused on police and prosecutor crackdowns. Today, public officials are moving toward treating addiction as a public health crisis, requiring treatment rather than incarceration. #massachusetts   #drugaddiction   #drugtreatment

The phrase "opening a can of worms" seems fitting. Thanks for sharing, +LinkLaw, LLC 
How often do attorneys in other jurisdictions come across police officers who lie under oath regarding material facts in a case? It happens too frequently in Philadelphia, and it often takes a little work to expose the lies. I would love to hear if other attorneys have methods they rely on to expose these cops.

It kind of makes you wonder what exactly they are trying to hide, doesn't it? Thanks for sharing, +Bob LeBrasseur. 
I simply fail to understand why law enforcement is so worried about being audio or video recorded. If you are doing nothing wrong why do you oppose people doing this? I hope this woman gets a monster judgment to send a message that law enforcement can be recorded while doing their job. 

I wish more departments would have video and audio on their officer to protect against unfounded lawsuits that cost taxpayers money but also to assist all parties in a criminal matter.

A step toward personal privacy. Thanks for sharing, +Gregory Oberhauser. 
The #Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court held that people have a reasonable expectation that their phones won’t be used by the government to keep periodic tabs on their general whereabouts. Thus, #ma  law enforcement, in most cases, may not track a suspect’s physical movements using cellphone data without getting a warrant first.

This is a good step toward criminal justice reform.
Will the Supreme Court take action against prosecutors abusing the #criminaljustice  system for personal gain?
