The law and the jungle

No, no, do not let him go

Should John Hinckley be released from psychiatric custody? As Ed Morrissey points out, he is already mostly out. He stays with his mother in a gated community for 17 days every month. Now his lawyer, Barry Levine, say he has been in "full and stable remission for more than two decades" and is "clinically ready" to live full-time outside a mentl hospital:

Cheap rights

This weird, weird world just got a lot weirder:

Hercules and Leo, who are currently used for biomedical experiments at Stony Brook University on Long Island, were granted habeas corpus by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe.

There will be a record of this

This is interesting:

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A change to Fort Wayne’s city policies and procedures will require employees to get written permission to record a conversation with another employee.

Indiana is a one-party consent state, meaning a person can record a conversation they are having with another person without the other person knowing.

Anything goes

Those who predicted that changing the definition of marriage would open the floodgates to just about anything the human mind could imagine were dismissed as reactionary, alarmist troglodytes. The back and forth has only intestified since the greater Indiana RFRA freakout, and progressives feel a lot safer intesifying the vilification of the conservatives' warnings.

Life and death

Alan  Dershowitz doesn't think the Boston Bomber will get the death penalty:           

Resistance

On March 20, DelRea Good was driving olone on a dark country road in Porter County when a police officer, who had clocked her at 54 mph in a 35 mph zone, tried to pull her over. She waved to the officer, slowed down, put on her hazard lights and proceeded to a well-lit Kohl's parking lot less than a mile down the road. A wise move, right? Woman driving alone at night, anything could happen. Wrong:

Don't need no stinkin' permit

I've mention a few times year that Indiana has even looser gun laws than Texas. Well, Kansas now has both of us beat:

This is protection?

Stupid kids have been doing stupid things since the beginning of time. There should be a better way to handle it than making stupidity a crime:

Oh, look, a squirrel!

You have to get used to a certain amount of posturing in this business, just accept that a lot of the people you're talking to are saying things just for effect. But honestly, the posturing in the last week over Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoraion Act has become insufferable.
