Critics of “Back the Blue” worry police would not be accountable

A bill in Congress called “Back the Blue” is intended to protect police officers who put their lives on the line. But the proposed legislation would not only enhance penalties for killing or assaulting officers, but broaden immunity to cops who are sued for brutality or using deadly force.

Do police always need probable cause?

Most of us have heard the phrase “probable cause” used by police officers and prosecutors on television shows. The first thing any good criminal defense lawyer will do is investigate whether the police had right and reason for searching a person’s property, or even questioning a person before making an arrest. In this post, I will explain the concept of probable cause and why it is such an important component of our criminal justice system.
