FBI says someone is arrested on marijuana crimes every 48 seconds

In recent weeks, months and even years, the stigma of marijuana crimes has changed. It used to be that people who were caught using, possessing or selling marijuana were seen as terrible criminals who were corrupting society; but nowadays, the crime -- though still serious -- does not raise such anger. In fact, many people now think that marijuana should be legalized; or, at the very least, that the crime be greatly reduced so that people who are accused or found guilty of having or distributing the substance are not punished so severely.

Mother of Lindsay Lohan arrested on DUI allegations

Wouldn't you know it, the name "Lohan" is in the headlines again. But this time, it isn't because of the more recognizable Lindsay Lohan -- it's her mom, Dina Lohan. She was arrested in New York recently after the police pulled her over on speeding allegations. Apparently she was travelling 77 miles per hour in a 55 MPH zone. Once they pulled Dina over, the police believed she may have been intoxicated.

Unusually-named man is back in the arrest report on drug charges

Last year, a man named Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop (henceforth in this post referred to only as "Beezow") became a national-recognized joke after he was arrested on drug charges. The internet was quick to adore him; late-night TV shows could count on him for a quick laugh; and Beezow's unwitting celebrity aura was the talk of water coolers all across the country.

How to deal with your insurance after a traffic violation

Imagine you are driving down the road after a long day at work. You approach a stop sign and you casually go through the motions -- not because you are dismissive of the rules, it's just that you are tired and the intersection is completely clear. No one is crossing or approaching it except you. So you roll on through the stop sign; but lo and behold, there was a police officer waiting in cover at the intersection. The officer pulls you over and writes you up a ticket for failing to stop.

Arrested for Driving on a Suspended License New York City Council

Noah Gotbaum -- a 54-year-old man who is in the running for a City Council seat representing the upper West Side neighborhood -- was pulled over recently for operating a vehicle while using a cell phone. Gotbaum was not using a hands-free device, according to police, which resulted in the traffic stop. However, Gotbaum apparently had an unpaid traffic ticket on his record and his license was suspended. As a result, this routine stop transformed into him being arrested for driving on a suspended license. Gotbaum paid his ticket and was released shortly after the ordeal. His vehicle was impounded, but his wife came and retrieved it.

Drug Charges issued against Sabbath observing Jews

Probable cause could be in question after drug arrests

We recently talked about probable cause when it came to a unique and problematic new law in Arkansas, which now permits the police to use a saliva test to gauge a person's blood alcohol level. One of the issues we raised in that post is probable cause. Probable cause permits a police officer to perform certain actions against a suspected criminal. However, that probable cause must be justified and substantiated.

Traffic Ticket Police Brutality

As seen in the video a cop doesn't mind that the motorist is complying, and you can see the multiple burn marks from the pepper spray. The police officer says that he pepper sprayed the motorist's girl friend once because she got out of the car and would not get back in, however she reports that he pulled her out of the car by her hair, handcuffed her, and pepper prayed her while she was already on the ground handcuffed. In the audio which is not on video you can hear the cop tell a paramedic "let her enjoy it" referring to the pepper spray and about the paramedic helping her out. Police Brutality? I think you could call it that.
