Graffiti punished by reading - 'It worked!' says prosecutor | BBC News
In September 2016, an old school house in Virginia, used for teaching black students during the era of segregation, was sprayed with offensive graffiti. The culprits were given an unusual sentence - reading. Two-and-a-half years later, the BBC's Emma Jane Kirby asks whether the punishment worked.#racism #justice #rehabilitation #teenage
DOJ to overturn work requirement for Medicaid in KY and AR
At issue are rules the Drumpf administration approved in the states obligating some people to work, volunteer, or take classes for 80 hours a month to be allowed to remain on Medicaid.
The rules don't apply to caregivers, parents, and people undergoing treatment for serious illness, but plaintiffs say they are illegal and do not serve the purpose of Medicaid, which is jointly funded by states and the federal government.
The Drumpf administration's argument is that Medicaid could go beyond providing healthcare coverage and instead, through work requirements, help beneficiaries improve their lives by earning more money and securing private health insurance coverage. It notes that people who work are healthier and improving health is another goal of Medicaid.

Trump's sister resigns from court amid tax probes
Full text from Axios:
An investigation into President Drumpf's sister Maryanne Drumpf Barry's finances came to a close upon her retirement as a federal appellate judge, the New York Times reports.
Background: Barry's finances came under scrutiny when an investigation by the New York Times alleged the Drumpfs were involved in tax schemes that increased their inherited wealth. Barry was co-owner of a company established to have the family's money flow through, per the New York Times. She was also nominated to an appellate court by President Clinton in 1999.
From the NYT:
The court inquiry stemmed from complaints filed last October, after an investigation by The New York Times found that the Drumpfs had engaged in dubious tax schemes during the 1990s, including instances of outright fraud, that greatly increased the inherited wealth of Mr. Drumpf and his siblings. Judge Barry not only benefited financially from most of those tax schemes, The Times found; she was also in a position to influence the actions taken by her family.The Trumps: A legacy of criminality, including fraudulent tax schemes. You would not believe that people who should be convicted for their crimes instead make it into courts and even the White House. It says a lot about a country that already cheers up its own exceptionalism.
In retirement, Judge Barry is entitled to receive annually the salary she earned when she last met certain workload requirements. Though the exact figure was not immediately available, it appears to be between $184,500 and $217,600.As I said: It says a lot about a country...

Trump nominee for Deputy AG Jeffrey Rosen uncertain about Brown v. Board ruling
The remark came during Rosen’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, pressed Rosen on Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark ruling that found school segregation to be unconstitutional; and Roe v. Wade, the ruling that affirmed that abortion access is a constitutional right.Could it be that Rosen probably approves of segregation in schools? I mean, for any rational being, it's without any doubt logical to overcome segregation, since there is no supportable ground to separate people by the colour of their skin.
“Senator, I don’t think that it would be a productive exercise for me to go through the most–thousands of Supreme Court opinions and say which ones are right and which ones are wrong,” he said.Why don't you just say «Yes», man? This is no question to contemplate, it's a matter of course! For God's sake, racists usually seem to suffer a hard time when it comes to hiding their pretentious beliefs.
But it puts him in the same camp as Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, who also declined to weigh in on Brown during his confirmation hearing, as The Atlantic noted. Judge Wendy Vitter, who was sworn in last year as a district judge, also refused to comment on the decision.They could at least just lie, they are not being pressured by a polygraph. If they said yes although they'd say no, that'd be fine. People would hardly analyse a lie inside their words or their mimic, we just had a clear response. But this man... For God's sake, you couldn't deliver a worse showplay...

SC judge Brett Kavanaugh to teach American George Mason U. in Runnymede, England
The judge, who faced a tempestuous and hugely divisive confirmation process last year over sexual assault allegations stemming from his youth, has been hired by George Mason University to teach the course.How would he continue to do his job in the Supreme Court when he (temporarily?) resided in England to teach the students in England the American Constitution? I mean, would he then do his job via video conferences? A virtual participation in fron of court?
The Virginia college, located in the outskirts of Washington DC, has appointed him to teach a law course on the origins and creation of the US constitution, the university confirmed on 27 March and the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.
There, four students wrote an op-ed in the Harvard Law Record, saying that an “opportunity to learn about the supreme court might not be equally available to women because many will self-select out of a class taught by a credibly accused sexual assailant”. Harvard announced in October that Kavanaugh said he could no longer commit to teaching at the school.

Contemplating the powers of Checks & Balances
The judiciary should be non-partisan. But it might be too much to expect the judiciary to be completely oblivious to the president’s public scoffing at their neutrality. Drumpf has labeled federal judges as Obama judges, or Bush judges, and asserted that the federal judge in the case involving Drumpf University was biased simply because his parents were born in Mexico.Well, in the end, we cannot completely believe that judges will always think and decide on a non-partisan base. On the Supreme Court, we speak of a balance of five to four respectively Conservative and liberal judges; out here, in Germany, we recently had the case of a state attorney who was known to follow by an outer right-winged agenda, therefore led investigations into a left-winged group of activists who reached the headlines for having installed a faux Holocaust memorial. What do you think how a non-partisan judiciary was supposed to be created? Well, the only way was to use apparent AI, but this still lies in its fancies, as far as I'm concerned.
In 1803, Chief Justice Marshall asserted it was the duty of the courts to “say what the law is.” Why, then, have the courts supinely agreed to what an administrator appointed by the president says a law means? This is the moment for the judicial and legislative to re-establish that they are co-equal to the executive branch. It is long overdue.

Wilmington resident won't be charged for abandoning pet fish
“We take a very dim view of anyone who would abuse any creature great or small and appreciate [The Animal Services Division’s] enforcement of the laws to protect vulnerable animals," District Attorney Ben David said in a news release. "Fish are not protected under these statues, therefore all charges against Mr. Hinson are dismissed.”
Michael Hinson, 53, was taken into custody last week and charged with three counts of misdemeanor cruelty to animals and one count of abandonment of an animal after he allegedly abandoned his pet Oscar fish while being evicted from his home on Two Chopt Road in March.

Chapitre X : L’obéissance comme seconde nature - Film documentaire "De la servitude moderne" de Jean-François Brient
A concept of justice that is only concerned with the social justice of distribution is a contradiction in terms. The justice of distribution of the goods has as its other side the justice regarding the efforts of producing the goods. Justice, rightly understood, has a distributive and a commutative aspect. The disregard of the commutative aspect of justice in favor of the distributive justice is unjust. Such an approach is also irrational since distribution is possible only when there is something to distribute.

Revolutionary justice carried out as NPA hits AFP troops in two engagements in ComVal
Red fighters under the ComVal-Davao Gulf Sub-Regional Command battled AFP troops in two separate engagements in Mabini and Maco towns in Compostela Valley, which resulted in heavy enemy casualty and thus dispensed revolutionary justice against the fascists whose hands are bloodied with the recent murder of two civilians and other serious abuses against the masses in the province.
On April 3, at around 6:45am, Red fighters engaged troops of the 71st IB in Sitio Bagong Silang, Brgy. Teresa in Maco town, where 4 fascist soldiers were confirmed killed and several others, including the Alpha Coy commander 1Lt. Serwin E. Matas, were severely wounded. Earlier, on March 30, three soldiers of the 66th IB were likewise killed in battle at around 9:30am in Sitio Dasuran, Brgy. Golden Valley in Mabini town. Contrary to fake news by the AFP, there was no casualty on the side of the NPA.
Last week, troops of the 71st IB murdered Franklin and Zaldy Tirol, both civilian farmers, in the early hours of March 28 in Sitio Mangurayan, Brgy. Anitapan, Mabini and tried desperately to falsely misrepresent the two as members of the NPA killed in an armed encounter.
In the aftermath of the March 30 and April 3 engagements, the fascist enemy launched heavy artillery from 105 howitzer canon several times, indiscriminately rained rocket fire using MG520 attack helicopters and airlifted their casualties from the encounter site. For several days, the AFP continued to use helicopters to forward-deploy troops, send out supplies and conduct aerial reconnaissance.
Already lacking support from the masses in the area, the enemy was lured deep into the guerilla base where they became vulnerable to offensives by the NPA. Furthermore, the AFP’s consequent heavy use of modern military equipment and materiel—at the expense of taxpayers’ money—is merely to conceal their failure to court the support of the masses who continue to suffer abuses in their counter-revolutionary war.
These latest engagements, which delivered heavy blows against enemy troops, scoff at the AFP’s gimmicks such as persona non-grata proclamations supposedly issued by local government units against the NPA. The fact that Red fighters are able to maneuver in their areas of operation and engage the enemy at their initiative prove that they thoroughly enjoy the support of the masses, unlike the AFP troops who are hated by the masses and thus wade blind and deaf into the revolutionary movement’s base areas.
Aside from their long list of crimes and abuses, the 71st IB and 66th IB are also being employed as investment defense force, aka highly paid guard dogs, of banana plantations and other capitalist ventures that displace farmers and Lumad and destroy the environment, such as the Apex Mining Company. This is the reason why the masses are rejoicing this appropriate meting out of revolutionary justice against two of the most rabid AFP troops in the region.
Duterte’s recent threat to declare a “revolutionary war” is mere bluster, a hollow intimidation being supported only by his fascist minions in the AFP and the PNP. At the very least, it is misnomer for an already existing bloody war for the benefit of the semi-feudal and semi-colonial reactionary system and one that the Filipino masses continue to bravely engage through the people’s war.
- Daniel Ibarra, spokesperson of the ComVal – Davao Gulf Sub-Regional Operations Command under the New People's Army

Racist lawyer spat into flight attendant's face after racist tirade
Judge Nicholas Wood, sentencing at Isleworth Crown Court in the UK, told Simone Burns: "The experience of a drunk and irrational person in the confines of an aircraft is frightening, not least on a long-haul flight and poses a potential risk to safety."Why the hell did she have to be drunk and Irish? This is such a cliché. Of course not the fact that she was racist, this is rather unusual, but the fact that she was drunk, on a flight, and she even is a lawyer, a business that is required a tad more decency, at least to my understanding. God damn, there are things I wish I had never read in my life.
Burns (50), who is known as Simone O Broin, of First Avenue, Hove, sat quietly in the dock as she was sentenced to six months for being drunk on an aircraft and two months for assault.Can we assume that she didn't bring her own booze with her? Because then, she cannot be told guilty on her own misdemeanour, because she probably was served the alcohol by the flight attendant, which means that they could've said that she will no longer be served any more alcohol. I mean, bartenders have the same duty: To not serve any more alcohol to a customer when it can be recognised that the customer is on the verge to being drunk.

Maltese criminal justice system at the brink of a collapse
In a draft copy of an evaluation report carried out by Group of States Against Corruption (Greco) seen by The Sunday Times of Malta, evaluators said it was clear Malta needed to increase its capacity to deal with allegations of corruption and other offences involving government officials.
_The report says the criminal justice response can too easily be paralysed where political influences come into play.__
“The police has refused to open cases arguing that no ‘hard’ evidence has been presented to it, even if it was undisputed that legal offshore constructions had been set up under questionable circumstances,” Greco said in the draft report seen by The Sunday Times of Malta.
“The crisis culminated in October 2017 with the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, who had reported extensively about the number of anomalies in the conduct of public affairs in recent years,” the report says.

Abolish the police
San Antonio police officer who was fired after colleagues accused him of trying to give a homeless man a sandwich containing dog feces has won his appeal but hasn't been reinstated.SOURCE
An arbitrator this month overturned Matthew Luckhurst's dismissal because he wasn't punished within the required 180 days of the alleged incident.
Officers reported the dog feces incident happened May 6, 2016, while Luckhurst was on bicycle patrol. He was notified of his indefinite suspension Oct. 28, 2016.
