Winning a murder conviction without a dead body

Every crime is unique. Despite that uniqueness, every crime contains its teachable moments. Below is a book review I wrote for the San Francisco Chronicle that appeared in print earlier this month. The lessons are multiple. PRESUMED DEAD: A True Life Murder Mystery By Henry K. Lee Berkley, 445 pages, $7.99 Reviewed by Steve [...]

The Truthiness Behind DOJ’s Taxpayer-funded Parties

A conservative senator blasted a Justice Department crime-prevention program this week, portraying it as a waste of taxpayer dollars undermining the department’s core mission. Senator Tom Coburn released a 42-page report documenting in lurid detail recreation activities funded via DOJ grants. I use “lurid” here liberally, since we’re talking about [...]

Your youth baseball brawl roundup

Bear Takes Stuffed Likeness from NH Home

I love the wild animal enters home and wreaks manageable havoc then leaves type of story as much as the next guy, but this one has a great twist. In New Hampshire a bear entered a house through an open door then proceeded to eat two pears, a bunch of grapes, [...]

Plot twist: Battle against corruption produces more corruption

The Interior Ministry's Department of Economic Security reports today that as President Dmitry Medvedev's war on corruption heats up, so has corruption. In the first six months of 2010, the size of the average bribe has nearly doubled, from 23,000 RUB ($760) to 44,000. Since Medvedev was elected in 2008, [...]

Arizona, where I live, has become ground zero in one of the most divisive issues of our day: immigration. There are two reasons for this unfortunate distinction. On the surface, the element that gave the issue traction here was passage of SB1070. The new law, which is due to go into [...]

This fall, California will consider repealing marijuana prohibition by way of a voter-sponsored ballot initiative called Proposition 19. If passed, it would stand as a direct affront to federal law, representing the most significant change in a state's drug policy since cannabis was first outlawed in 1937. Though marijuana legalization is [...]
