The "Good Faith" Doctrine  

June 1, 2007

The U.S. Supreme Court has said that "Because many situations which confront officers in the course of executing their duties are more or less ambiguous, room must be allowed for some mistakes on their part.

September 1, 2006

Good Riddance  

August 1, 2006

By the most conservative estimates, there are more than 12 million illegal aliens in this country. All but the most liberal Americans and those who own large industries that benefit from illegal alien labor at ridiculously low wages believe that this is a real problem.

Napa (Calif.) Police Department  

March 1, 2006

Sometimes a schoolyard scuffle is just a simple fight. Sometimes it’s a clear cry for help from a kid battling bigger demons at home. And sometimes it portends more serious violence from a disturbed, future-felon-in-the-making.
