Law-enforcement misconduct updates from Radley Balko

Just a few of Balko’s links in the Washington Post. (Click the link to read them all.)

  • Louisiana sheriff Jerry Larpenter sent his deputies to raid a home after an anonymous blogger accused him of corruption — an act that in and of itself pretty much fits the definition of corruption. [And also violates the First Amendment: citizens are free to criticize government officials, but of course law enforcement priorities don’t put much emphasis on Constitutional rights. – LG]
  • The DEA warns that marijuana grows are “the new meth houses.” I think the DEA is getting a bit desperate.
  • Here at The Watch, we’ve often noted the problems with the Albuquerque Police Department. Over at Buzzfeed, Albert Samaha has a deeply reported account of how the police department retaliated and effectively brought down the career of the one district attorney who tried to hold officers accountable.
