A blog written for those whose interests more or less match mine.

Just a few of Radley Balko’s afternoon links about daily life in the US

A few links from Balko’s Washington Post column, which has more:

  • It’s difficult to understand why someone who is dying shouldn’t have access to a drug that could save his life, regardless of whether that drug has been approved by the FDA.
  • Indiana couple say they were pulled over while speeding to a hospital to give birth. The couple claims one officer then pointed a gun at the pregnant woman’s belly and arrested her husband, causing him to miss the birth of his kid. One officer also apparently assured the other that he would “get rid of” the dash cam video of the incident. Portage, Ind., police chief Troy Williams later said the gun-pointing officer “should not be demonized for one unfortunate incident.”
  • DOJ is reviewing what a federal judge called use of “staggering” NSA surveillance data by the FBI and DEA for investigations that have nothing to do with national security.
