Fault Lines Friday Fail
May 27, 2016 (Mimesis Law) — Welcome to the (almost) weekend, and another edition of the Fault Lines Friday Fail. Our contributors have done all the work, and now it’s time for you, our valued readers, to have your say.
The Fault Lines Friday Fail is our weekly reader-selected “prize” to the criminal justice system’s most monumental failure as offered by our Fault Lines contributors. Last week you selected Wayne Pratt’s “reasonable” strangulation as the “winner.” Check out this week’s top 5 fails and then pick this week’s favorite.
- Colorado’s “Zero Tolerance” policy sees a kindergartner suspended over a bubble gun.
- Timothy Foster’s Supreme Court win won’t really impact racism in the legal system.
- The Department of Justice wants to “investigate” Russian steroid use in sports.
- Chicago Officer Clauzell Gauze gets legal red carpet treatment for beating a mental patient.
- Georgia is suing a man for the crime of helping its citizens know the law.
We’ve got one rule before voting: you can’t vote if you didn’t read the post. It’s okay, we’ll wait. And it’s not a rule, but we’d really appreciate if you’d comment telling us what made your choice the biggest failure of the week. You get the chance to express your opinion and tell everyone why you’re right and they’re wrong! Why wouldn’t you exercise that ability?
Before you go, we seriously want to know: Did we leave out the worst fail of the week? If so, let us know. It’s cool. By the way, if you see something fail so bad it should be in next week’s Friday fail, 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.
