Chin News

This was my weekend for Tucson media: I was quoted in this article in the increase of drug seizures at the Arizona border; I suggested that it could mean more drug flow in to the US, better interdiction.  Also, the Arizona Wildcat, the student newspaper, covered the Stop and Frisk demonstration I did for the first year Criminal Procedure students.

Thanks to George Brooks

Among the many tippers who provide useful links to this Blog is the Reverend George Brooks, J.D., Director of Advocacy for the Kolbe House, the jail ministry of the Archdiocese of Chicago.  I won't thank him for each story, but I do want to acknowledge his past present and future work sharing death penalty and other criminal justice news.  Reverend Brooks has ministered to more prisoners than most criminal lawyers have ever met.  Here's his interview with the Catholic New World; here's a statement about his work on the website of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
