Fault Lines Friday Fail
February 10, 2017 (Fault Lines) — Welcome, one and all, to that most wonderful time of the week, the (almost) weekend, and another edition of the Fault Lines Friday Fail. With Valentines’ Day rapidly approaching our contributors lovingly worked all week to bring you the best legal analysis the web has to offer. Now it’s time to step back and let you, our valued reader, have your say.
The Fault Lines Friday Fail is our reader selected “prize” to the week’s biggest criminal justice system failure, as brought to you by the Fault Lines contributing staff. Last week’s “winners” were the Warren County Jail COs who raped and beat a woman after denying her needed medication. Check out the top 5 fails of the week and pick your favorite.
- A proposed Arizona law could jail you for a quick jaunt to the store without ID.
- California’s cops are under scrutiny for cop cavity searches.
- Lack enough auto insurance in Tennessee? Say goodbye to your money and your car.
- North Carolina’s “Stoner Paradise” is apparently an AR-15 worthy “war zone”
- Forget free speech! Punch Nazis and blow up stuff!
Remember the First (and only) Friday Fail Rule as you peruse the week’s selections: you can’t vote until you read the post. Go ahead, we’ll still be here when you return. And while it’s not a requirement, if you leave a comment telling us why your selection was the biggest failure of them all it would be greatly appreciated. It might make the curator of these posts decide to stop wearing pro wrestling T-shirts on a weekly basis. Don’t you care about our contributors’ sense of style? Go vote!
Wait! Before you go, let us know: did we leave something out that deserved inclusion in this week’s installment of the Friday Fail? If so, let us know in the comments. And as always, if you see something in the criminal justice system so bad it needs to be in next week’s installment, let us know on Twitter at @faultXlines with the hashtag #FridayFail so we can check it out.
We look forward to hearing from you. And have fun.
