ADAMS COUNTY - An Adams County Judge says the county's Human Services are to blame for the death of 22-month-old Michael Harris, who died February of 2011 from injuries inflicted by his mother's boyfriend.

Judge Chris Melonakis said, "[Adams County Human Services] are directly responsible for the death of the child. Frankly somebody should be taking them in front of the grand jury." Judge Melonakis added, "Michael Harris never had a chance in life. As a system, we had an obligation to give him a chance in life. It's appalling the level of neglect from the state. It transcends the level of human decency."

DENVER - After more than 40 years of surveys, support for the legalization of marijuana has reached the magic number: 50 percent.

In Colorado, voters will decide next year on whether to allow the use of small amounts of marijuana. Five years ago, the state voted 59 to 41 to turn down a similar measure. Next year, the measure will come back.

A design contract is like a business card-it comes from the same desk, and bears the same creative mark.

But it's also the business card you hate handing out: a folder of legal gibberish with terrible formatting that reminds the client of everything that could possibly go wrong before the work has even started. Is this just a necessary evil? Why can't contracts evolve like everything else? Actually, they can-and should. Modernizing your contract will not only make it match your carefully crafted brand, but it can also help you reach an agreement faster, and even strengthen your position when negotiating.

Assemblymember Joel Anderson, a conservative Republican whose children are taught at home, has introduced a concurrent resolution in the California Assembly. If it passes, it will go to the state Senate for their vote.

The resolution states that homeschooled children perform well at college and in life, that there is a rich history of homeschooling, that an estimated 200,000 children in California and 2,000,000 children in the U.S. are taught at home, that the U.S. Constitution recognizes the fundamental right of parents to have their children educated outside of state schools, that the appellate decision is misguided, and that the Supreme Court should reverse the decision.

Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul doesn't seen a rosy future ahead for the United States. In fact, he sees a repeat of recent history - though not U.S. history - on the horizon.

"They're (Washington collectively) not going to work their way out of it, so it's just (all) going to collapse," he said. "Let's just keep working on the fact that, when we get around to rebuilding this whole entire system, that we do it the way it was intended originally, and actually improve upon it."

Florida police brutalize woman. Break cheekbone, laugh about it and lie afterward.

This video might piss a few Floridians off, but it's doubtful many would be surprised. Especially any with any experience with law enforcement. Skip ahead to about 8:40, but be forewarned - this is extremely graphic, her screams are loud, and probably not safe for work. This is dashboard footage from a patrol car in Tallahassee, FL showing the arrest of a drunk woman who drove into a house. There were no injuries reported. After allowing the 110-pound woman back out of the car to give her a breathalyzer test, the "police" attempt to re-position her to administer the test. As she drunkenly and feebly pushes against one of the 250-pound officer's shoulders, he shouts "Don't f*cking TOUCH me!"and slams her head down into the cruiser's trunk lid right before pressing down into her head, putting a good deal of his weight on the forearm wedged into her skull.

Galveston, Texas-area lawyers on Facebook may want to double-check their friends list, especially if they're about to appear before Judge Susan Criss.

Criss recalled one time that a lawyer asked for a continuance because of the death of her father. The lawyer had earlier posted a string of status updates on Facebook, detailing her week of drinking, going out and partying. But in court, in front of Criss, she told a completely different story.

Most agree, dandelions are a notorious weed. But some recognize that dandelion greens can contribute to a tasty and nutritious meal.

Among the fans of the food is John Taris, a 75-year-old retiree who lives in the Chicago area with his wife on a $1,500-a-month social security payment. When the couple's food supply was a bit low recently, he volunteered to go pick some to provide a vegetable, writes columnist John Kass in the Chicago Tribune (sub. req.). But, caught in the act of picking the weeds by a Cook County Forest Preserve cop, he was issued a $75 ticket. His court date is July 9.

Are cops constitutional? In a 2001 article for the Seton Hall Constitutional Law Journal, the legal scholar and civil liberties activist Roger Roots posed just that question.

Roots, a fairly radical libertarian, believes that the U.S. Constitution doesn't allow for police as they exist today. At the very least, he argues, police departments, powers and practices today violate the document's spirit and intent. "Under the criminal justice model known to the framers, professional police officers were unknown," Roots writes. The founders and their contemporaries would probably have seen even the early-19th-century police forces as a standing army, and a particularly odious one at that. Just before the American Revolution, it wasn't the stationing of British troops in the colonies that irked patriots in Boston and Virginia; it was England's decision to use the troops for everyday law enforcement.
