My first big report for the new Substack is now live. It's a two-year investigation into the horrific wrongful conviction of an intellectually disabled man in Arkansas. No paywall, so I hope you'll check it out. radleybalko.substack.com/p/t…

It does seem a little off, on the first day of Black History Month, in an article about how black history should be taught, to seek out the counsel of a guy who has called Eric Holder a modern-day George Wallace.
Why is Ilya Shapiro, best known for characterizing the first female Black SCOTUS nominee to be a "lesser Black woman" treated as an expert commentator on Black history by the NY Times? nytimes.com/2023/02/01/us/co…

The officers didn't show so Commissioner Dasha Lundy is going to try to compel them with a subpoena. But she needs 2/3 of the commission to back her which is ... not likely to happen. knoxnews.com/story/news/loca… via @AngelaDWrites cc @radleybalko
Update to this story from last week. The officers didn't show. knoxnews.com/story/news/loca… cc @radleybalko

Good work, everybody.
Jaw-dropping outcome: Police officer charged with faking evidence of crimes, causing DA to reverse 100s of convictions. Then, in prosecution of officer, prosecutor fails to turn over evidence to defense, resulting in dismissal of case. Prosecutor fired. nytimes.com/2023/01/31/nyreg…

When the Louisiana State University football team loses in an upset, it causes judges in Louisiana to add 1,296 days of punishment to juvenile defendants (& 136 extra days of jail time!) as the judges are grumpy. Judges with degrees from LSU are harshest. aeaweb.org/articles?id=10.12…

If Florida, teachers are advised to hide their books to avoid felony charges. At one school, “the kids began crying and writing letters to the principal, saying, ‘Please don’t take my books, please don’t do this.’” washingtonpost.com/education…

Keep this in mind when you think about those databases of police shootings. The vast, vast majorities of entries will be based entirely or mostly on police reports, or on media reports that rely on police reports. This one was basically fiction. apple.news/Ak7csTf2bSCSYLRLH…

In fact, much of the data we have about police shootings, encounters, and use of force are based on reports written by police officers themselves.

The brutal circumstances that led to the death of Tyre Nichols has renewed conversations around the country about policing, use of force and related issues. To discuss the effectiveness of special police units @GeoffRBennett spoke with @radleybalko. to.pbs.org/3MzB3rB

This LinkedIn post claiming the cops who killed Tyre Nichols were "affirmative action hires" is all over right-wing social media. The author says he's a "police chief" . . . but from where? Looks like he's the "chief" of a 1-man police department, for a town of 700 people.

Really something how the officers arresting parents for letting their kids walk to Dunkin Donuts by themselves chugged the stranger danger Kool Aid. This is just hysterical nonsense. reason.com/2023/01/30/dunkin…

Simply for quitting abusive working conditions, a group of Filipino nurses was threatened with jail time by New York prosecutors. Those prosecutors were then given ABSOLUTE legal immunity for what they did. @forbes @IJ forbes.com/sites/nicksibilla…

Ancestor veneration is weird. The only exception is if, like me, your great grandfather was a bonafide hobo.
