Clemency, pardons to increase for drug criminals

A major announcement was made this week by the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder. He said that the president would start expanding his use of commutation. In other words, the president will expand his use of clemency and criminal pardons, specifically when it comes to people who were charged with drug crimes.

Minneapolis home shut down after suspicion of meth production

Many residents in southwest Minneapolis were surprised to find out that an apparent meth lab was established in their neighborhood. It is not exactly clear if that is the case, as no formal charges have been brought. A task force was looking for a man who was wanted for drug possession and theft when they executed a search warrant at the home.

The curious case of 'status offenses' and how they hurt juveniles

Last week we talked about how the police are getting creative to hit people with criminal charges. Dubbed "outside the box" charges, they are part of a strategy that allows the police to cater the charges they want to give to people -- and though it may sound illegal, it is all within the guise of the law. Now there's a report aboutt he way juveniles are being charged in a creative way as well, though it benefits no one and will leave many people questioning why such criminal charges exist.

'Creative' charges are leading people into added punishment

An interesting story has come out about how St. Paul works around certain criminal charges to invoke tougher, more punishing charges on people who steal from retail stores. These so-called "outside the box" charges allow police departments and prosecutors to hit people with extensive penalties that, though they may technically be within the confines of the law, they go above and beyond how a person should be punished.
