While the Right to Know Law makes many (if not most) government records accessible to the public, the law contains specific provisions that allow the types of records you are looking for to be withheld.

FOR 10 YEARS, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s investigative office has worked to keep its internal handbook out of American courts. The handbook could have been used in court to show how ICE’s push to lead on denaturalization cases stands in contrast to the language of federal law governing the process, an immigration lawyer said. “We could have used it as an exhibit in a motion to dismiss” in previous denaturalization cases, said Philip Smith, an immigration attorney from Portland, Oregon, noting the contrast.

The handbook, which was issued on January 15, 2008, and published by the independent media outlet Unicorn Riot, makes clear that the priority for ICE’s investigative division, Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, in denaturalization proceedings is to use the most efficient means possible to fulfill a single-minded goal: leveraging the bureaucratic process to strip citizenship from naturalized Americans.

“Their objective is to inflict the most pain as possible, as efficiently as possible.”

“It’s a manual for the worst outcome” with respect to investigation targets, said Alaska immigration lawyer Margaret Stock in an interview on Tuesday. That’s not unique to ICE, Stock added — it’s how the entire U.S. justice system operates. “Their objective is to inflict the most pain as possible, as efficiently as possible,” Stock said. “They feel they’re doing their job correctly if the government wins — not if justice is done.”  Continue reading →

Clark County’s Mental Health Court evolves

Clark County’s Mental Health Court evolves

via Mental Health Teams In Police Stations And Courts Scheme Goes Live.



Published: January 23, 2018, 6:00 AM

Clark County’s long-standing Mental Health Court recently received a major overhaul, most notably with the addition of felony-case referrals. Defendants will also no longer be required to plead guilty for program admission.

The change went into effect about two weeks ago when the court opened it up to felony-case referrals, Clark County Prosecutor Tony Golik said, and indigent defense attorneys underwent training on the referral process. At least one felony referral is already being screened.

Historically, only misdemeanor cases qualified for Mental Health Court. Defendants were required to plead guilty for admission, but upon successful completion of the program, they avoided jail time.

But now, the program is the first pre-plea court in the county; upon successful completion of the program, the defendant’s charge is dismissed. Continue reading→

Full Story

After missing the school bus, Homer takes Milhouse and Bart to school. Homer hears on the radio an announcement for a KBBL‘s “Prize Possie” radio contest, and whoever gets spotted with the radio station’s van and has a “KBBL Party Penguin” hanging from the car antenna wins a prize of $40. Immediately after the announcement, Milhouse spots the van crossing traffic. Homer then abandons Bart and Milhouse on the side of the road and sets out to chase the prize van. The boys start to walk to school by themselves, until they notice Chief Wiggum’s squad car. They get inside and play around in the front seat, but accidentally put the car in neutral after being threatened by the squad’s canine in the back seat. After crashing the police car into a tree, Wiggum puts Bart and Milhouse in custody for assuming they used the car for a joyride.

In juvenile court, Milhouse gets his case quickly dismissed for Judge Snyder believes that “boys will be boys”. Bart, not worried about any punishment as he believes that Snyder is “the good judge”, comes up to face his trial. Snyder is just about to let Bart free until the judge’s vacation has started. The replacement judge, Constance Harm, isn’t a pushover, and is just about to sentence him to juvenile detention, but after realizing that Homer was the one who abandoned Bart in the first place, she orders that Bart and Homer be tethered together for the time being.

The Parent Rap/Quotes

Judge Harm: You have got a boy here who is crying out for adult supervision!

Homer: I couldn’t agree more. Perhaps some sort of court-appointed babysitter or au pair?Judge Harm: Sorry, bub, that crow won’t caw.Homer: It won’t?
