“Official Oppression” Everywhere (Episode 59)

Picture of ED-209 from the movie Robocop

Join us this week as we talk about how screwed Donald Trump’s lawyer is, a California sheriff on video arguing it’s best to kill suspects, a Pennsylvania prosecutor resigning over repeated sex crimes, and several cases across the country of federal law enforcement endangering people’s lives — or killing them outright.

Then, in our weekly #Law140, we talk about the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and an arrest at a Starbucks in Philadelphia!

Happy Birthday to Me! (Episode 57)

Picture of embroidered text that reads "37 is Fabulous"

T. Greg celebrates turning 37 with a full episode of criminal justice f*ckery! Join us as we go over “testi-lying” in New York, California deputies stealing from a woman with dementia and then shipping her to a foreign country (and killing an unarmed black man in his own backyard), a Maryland officer who spent his time in court sexually harassing the judge’s law clerk, and a Texas deputy repeatedly punching a 12-year-old girl with autism for the heinous crime of petting her own dog.

And there’s so much more!

#Law140: Federalism Overview (Episode 56)

Picture of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay

T. Greg is under the weather, so it’s an abbreviated episode covering the US Department of Justice lawsuit against California – and how that lawsuit will test the boundaries of federalism envisioned by the Founding Fathers. Join us for a tour of Supreme Court precedent on federal powers versus states’ rights!

Regular programming will (hopefully) return later this week! Remember to check out our Patreon page for exclusive patron-only content!

Consequence-Free Policing (Episode 55)

Picture of a black mug with white lettering that reads "Hakuna Matata Bitch"

It’s been a busy week! Join us to discover the real reason why Democrat Congresscritter Joe Kennedy III opposes marijuana reform, then in criminal justice news learn about what police can get away with while totally avoiding punishment: killing someone in California and Oklahoma, abusing 10-year-olds in Maryland, trying to kill a puppy for sport in New Jersey, and a whole mess of f*ckery out of the NYPD in New York.

Carmageddon, Police Edition (Episode 54)

Picture of Carmageddon video game cover art, with "Police Edition" superimposed

Greetings from Atlanta! Join us this week for a smaller episode that’s part criminal justice f*ckery, and part mini-WTFsck Volume VI. We talk about cops killing people by car in Michigan and Louisiana, hitting a third in New York (before framing the driver for DWI), and a pair of entries from our “Ain’t no systemic racism in this country bih” files about a white nationalist schoolteacher in Florida and a racist firefighter in Kansas.

Then, in place of #Law140, T. Greg answers a quartet of your questions!

Politicians Behaving Badly (Episode 53)

Picture of Idaho state senator Dan Foreman yelling at college students

We skip the political discussion this week, because so many politicians ended up in the criminal justice news! A Republican governor is indicted for invasion of privacy, a married Democratic mayor pays her police bodyguard overtime so they could have sex in a cemetery, a Republican senator extorted a page for sex, a Democratic Sheriff terrorizes minorities, and on and on it goes. Plus: a #Law140 on the free speech rights of school students!

Aмерикa первая (Episode 52)

Picture of Robert Mueller in color at foreground, with grayscale background profiles of Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and Donald Trump Jr

It’s an abridged Fsck this Monday, as T. Greg spends the episode talking politics: the gun control debate following the school shooting in Parkland FL, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller unveiling a 37-page indictment confirming the Russians bought the American Presidency (for cheap!). Plus: Rick Gates agrees to plead guilty in order to help the Trump-Russia probe.

Our weekly summary of criminal justice f*ckery will be out this Thursday!

[CORRECTION (02/19/18 @ 3:46pm EST): On the podcast, I said “Robert” Gates is pleading guilty in Mueller’s Russia probe; it’s actually *Rick* Gates (Robert Gates was a former Secretary of Defense). The show notes are correct now! Thanks to @gortok for the correction!]

“Never help anyone. Ever. Or Get Shot.” (Episode 51)

Painting of the Good Samaritan helping a beaten man on the side of the road

Join us this week as two separate wife-beaters resign from the Trump White House, judges in Kentucky and Texas face indictment, two deputies in Durham NC face DWI charges, and police in Georgia and Missouri flip the Parable of the Good Samaritan on its head by arresting one and shooting the other. Then in our #Law140 segment we give you an overview of the overbreadth doctrine, and how a North Carolina law was ruled unconstitutional last week in one of my cases!

“Would You Like Some Drugs With That?” (Episode 50)

Picture of police officer handing a cup of coffee out a drive-thru window to a customer, text reads "Would you like drugs with that?"

It’s a shorter-than-normal Fsck this week because T. Greg had the flu, but we still fit in stories about the Nunes meh-mo, totally bonkers testimony about Maryland’s corrupt Gun Trace Task Force, more ICE stupidity, and the wide variety of police getting charged with dealing drugs.

Episode 49, a #Law140 on how the First Amendment applies to the Executive Branch, is on our Patreon page exclusively for our patrons! We’ll hopefully be back to regular episodes next week!
