    • Clovis, California: A man [James L. Quinn] who claimed he was wrongfully jailed by Fresno County authorities for allegedly violating probation was awarded $425,000 by a federal jury. He also said that the police wouldn’t let him retrieve heart medication when he was arrested, and jailers failed to heed his pleas for medical treatment when he began having chest pains. [former probation officer David Alanis]
    • Update: Queens, New York: The judge [Thomas Raffaele] who said an officer [not yet named] struck him is blasting the District Attorney for not prosecuting the officer. The judge said the officer hit him when he mistook the judge for a heckler. “It was absolutely criminal,” said the judge, “and I think a jury would have very little difficulty, if they heard the testimony, determining who was telling the truth and who was lying.” [cops were abusing a suspect, Charles Menninger]

The police say they went into her backyard because the back gate was open and was cause for suspicion. When the police ran into her unexpectedly, she was shot.
