FAULT LINES FRIDAY FAIL
Apr. 29, 2016 (Mimesis Law) — It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for the Fault Lines Friday Fail. We’ve done all the work this week, and now you get to have your say.
The Friday Fault Lines Fail is our weekly reader-selected “prize” to the most monumental failure of the criminal justice system as offered by Fault Lines contributors. Last week’s “winner” was Kimberly Carbone’s state sanctioned cop rape. Check out our top 5 fails and then pick your fav fail of the week.
- Kansas’ Supreme Court can’t make up their minds on sex offender cases.
- Pinellas County, Florida police are clapping their backs over letting three teens drown.
- A Seattle prosecutor forged documents for a conviction. It didn’t work well.
- Park too close to a fire hydrant? That’s a beating.
- Grade school kids were arrested on a bogus charge, but police are really sorry.
There is only one rule before voting: you can’t vote if you didn’t read the post. Go ahead, we’ll wait. And while it’s not a rule, what we would really appreciate are your comments telling us what made your choice the biggest failure of the week. Go ahead, tell us and other readers why your fail was worse than all the others.
Wait! Did we leave out the worst fail of the week? Let us know. It’s cool. And if you think there’s something that fails so bad it should be in the next week’s poll, let us know on Twitter at @faultXlines with the hashtag #FridayFail and we’ll check it out.
We look forward to hearing from you. And have fun.
