SCOTUS Rules Police Can “Shoot First, Ask Questions Later” Ep. 64

On Monday the SCOTUS dismissed (without briefing or oral arguments) an excessive force case stemming from a 2010 incident where Respondent, Amy Hughes was shot four times by Arizona Police officer Andrew Kisela. In her dissent, Justice Sotomayor stated this precedent means police can “shoot first” and “ask questions later.” In this episode I walk us through the Court’s decision and explain the legal rules at play.

Lysander Spooner on Jury Nullification Ep. 56

It’s been too long since I’ve done a solo episode. For this one, I hop on the mic for the first installment in a new series focusing on trial by jury. Using Lysander Spooner’s “Trial by Jury” as a framework, this series will explore the simple fact that juries have the ancient right to judge both the facts and the justice of the laws. This first episode introduces the fundamental importance of that fact.
