America has serious problems with its police

Randy Balko’s list of links in the Washington Post has some grim news today. Here are just some of the links:

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Federal judge: FBI methods of spying on journalists should remain classified.
  • The number of cellphones searched or seized by border patrol agents increased 1,100 percent in February of this year compared to February of 2015.
  • Video of the day: The incident below took place in Alabama in 2014. The man police shoot, Michael Davidson, has no criminal record. He wasn’t armed. He didn’t lead police on a chase. There was no reason to think he was dangerous. He was holding his wallet, presumably so he could show the police his identification. Yet earlier this year, a federal appeals court found this shooting to be “reasonable” under the Fourth Amendment.

TRIGGER WARNING: Video is shocking, and the federal appeals court is out of its mind.
