Which side of the bars were the criminals?
The FBI arrested 46 current and former correctional officers from the Georgia Department of Corrections system at at least eight different state institutions, two federal law enforcement officials said Thursday.

Wondering what our friends in the #legal  community think about this resolution from the ABA. Courtesy of the Lawyerist.com. +American Bar Association 
Yesterday, after a heated debate, the ABA House of Delegates adopted Resolution 105, a set of model regulatory objectives. Resolution 105 was controversial because of the last sentence of the proposal, which merely acknowledged that some states are already permitting non-lawyers to provide limited legal services, and others may wish to. The news yesterday that …

Because of the way that THC is absorbed into the body widely differs from the way alcohol is absorbed into the body the steps that law enforcement are taking to test for THC are, in most cases, inaccurate. 

This article from +NPR  is a very interesting read. 
Blood alcohol levels match well with a person's impairment. But the THC in marijuana doesn't move around the body the same way, so blood tests can miss people who are stoned.

             Should you trust a stranger?
“There is so much misinformation about me, no one can say with absolute certainty who I am,” he said in an interview there late last month.
Still, his identity was a puzzle. He had spent 25 years stealing Social Security numbers and fabricating new aliases, leaving behind a thicket of confusing and falsified records. Six weeks earlier, he had been released from a federal prison in New Hampshire, where he had served six years for identity theft as Jeremy Clark-Erskine. But he had more than 27 aliases in five states. His birth certificate had been altered several times. Even his citizenship was in doubt. He had been deported more than once as an illegal immigrant. Now he is at Rikers Island, awaiting trial.

“Jeremy Wilson,” now at Rikers Island facing fraud charges, has used dozens of aliases as a professor, a commando, numerous executives and an Irishman, among other cons.

       Do you know what makes people to change their mind?
Their research suggests that the arguments that end up changing people’s minds have certain dynamics. Numbers are important: The more people that try to persuade the original poster, the greater the likelihood of changing their view. So is timing: Those who write back first to the post first are more likely to persuade the original poster than those who write later, as the lefthand chart below shows.

If the FBI can't find, locate or speak to an informant behind bars, what are the chances of a common family doing so? Zero - when the sheriff's department is corrupt.

In the summer of 2011, the FBI had enlisted Anthony Brown, an inmate in the Men's Central Jail, to collect information on abusive and corrupt deputies. The sheriff's officials responded by "hiding" the inmate. They moved the cooperating inmate to a different jail under a fake name and prevented the FBI from talking to him.
Retired Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca will plead guilty in a downtown courtroom Wednesday to making false statements, marking a dramatic turn in the ongoing federal investigation into corruption in the Sheriff's Department.

This high school athletic director was making $123,000 and decided to hack her superior's email account to get an advantage in contract negotiations.  It seems so stupid, how much more did she think she could get?  I am not sure that she needed to be indicted though.  She could lose her pension.  What do you think?

I agree somewhat but it seems more like a prank than a crime. Having said that, to hack a superior's email in order to blackmail them is not a prank it is certainly a crime. The hacking was undertaken with criminal intent. It was a crime, but one of the dumbest I have ever seen!

2016 #taxseason‬ was opened and it seems like there's a lot of time to figure everything out, collect necessary information, fill in the required forms and get those taxes done.
Yeah, that’s what most of us are thinking every single year and that’s exactly why we run around in panic when the big day is coming up closer and closer.
But let's calm down and decide whether you need to hire a #tax‬ professional to help you or you really may cope with this task on your own.

         Will Google ever respect customers' privacy?
Google Inc. has brought on lawyers from Cooley to defend the company from claims that it violated a federal privacy statute by intercepting and scanning emails sent by students using its Apps for Education service.
The suit puts Cooley in the familiar position of defending Google's scanning of emails to serve targeted ads. The firm helped defeat a bid for class certification in 2014 in In re Google Gmail Litigation, 13-2430, a prior suit that accused the company's ad-matching program of violating various federal and state privacy laws.

       Should doctor prescribe opioids to drug addicts?
A judge on Friday sentenced a Rowland Heights doctor to 30 years to life in prison for the murders of three of her patients who fatally overdosed, ending a landmark case that some medical experts say could reshape how doctors nationwide handle prescriptions.
The sentence came after a Los Angeles jury last year found Dr. Hsiu-Ying “Lisa” Tseng guilty of second-degree murder, the first time a doctor had been convicted of murder in the U.S. for overprescribing drugs.
Superior Court Judge George G. Lomeli said before sentencing Tseng that she had attempted to blame patients, pharmacists and other doctors rather than take responsibility for her own actions.

The corporation doesn't shield individuals from personal liability for trust fund taxes.
