Spokane County Superior Court Judge Sam Cozza apparently has a dim view of people swearing in his courtroom. He halted proceedings midway through Friday’s first appearance docket after a teenager got up and stormed out of the courtroom, leaving a string of expletives in his wake.
Cozza demanded that the teen come back inside the courtroom and told him he was in trouble. The teen’s initial response was to say “Do I have to?” but he complied with the judge’s instruction. He told the judge that he’d been in court to see his brother, who had been arrested the day before. “I’m just a little bit irritated,” he said. “Some of the allegations were false.”
It’s a big world, and there are lots of different fighting styles – boxing, kung fu, jujitsu (jiu-jitsu), MMA, taekwondo, to name a few. And then there’s this gent’s fighting style, unlikely to be replicated by anyone, ever. As reported by The Santa Cruz Sentinel:
A 24-year-old Santa Cruz man was arrested Sunday after police got a call complaining that a drunken man was being disruptive and challenging people to fight, police said.
Officers arrived near West Cliff Drive and Pelton Avenue near Lighthouse Field about 1:45 p.m. and found that Dimitri Z. Storm had encountered an opponent who took him up on his challenge to fight, Sgt. Dave Perry said.
The [Ukraine] government faces $9 billion in foreign debt repayments next year and its budget deficit almost tripled in January-October this year to more than $4 billion.
No, not Santa! [He’s called Did Moroz locally.]
Yes, what we as a society want is for people not to trust police officers. That’ll foster a great police/citizen relationship. This ruse used by police in Ohio will not only undermine the ordinary citizen’s trust in the police, it won’t do jack in the “war on drugs.” As reported by The Cleveland Plain Dealer at cleveland.com:
Police are not allowed to use checkpoints to search motorists and their vehicles for drugs. So, in Mayfield Heights, officers are trying the next-best thing — fake drug checkpoints.
Brilliant! And such a great use of police resources.
On 02/01/14 at approximately 1700 hrs. Officer M. McCormick, was dispatched to the 1600 block of Loraine St. to investigate a reported burglary. Upon arrival he contacted the Victim who stated that between approximately 2200 hrs. on 1/31/14 and 1000 hrs. on 02/01/14 that an unknown person illegally entered his open attached garage and removed his Cannondale brand mountain bike valued at approximately $5,000.00. The Victim stated that his bicycle was very unique in that it was comprised of parts that he specifically purchased to put on the bicycle.
Not to digress, or say anything negative about a fellow cyclist, but you left the garage door open? Oh well. The damage has been done. Or … has it?
The Juice does not have a problem with parents letting an older teenager have a drink in their own home. But this New Zealand law goes way, way beyond that, and extends outside of the home. In fact, it’s not clear what the outer limits are. As reported by The Otago Daily Times (New Zealand):
A Dunedin man was shocked when a health adviser confirmed young children could be supplied alcohol by a ”responsible” guardian. Steve Hayward contacted the Health Promotion Agency information line after finding their pamphlet on ”under-18” drinking in a Dunedin bar. ”I couldn’t believe what I was reading.”
The pamphlet in question detailed law changes concerning supplying alcohol for under-18s, which came into effect on December 18. The brochure noted as long as the person supplying the alcohol was the parent or guardian, alcohol could be supplied in a responsible manner. The brochure also noted that if consent was needed from a parent or guardian, then an email or text was sufficient.
If you don’t follow Legal Juice on Twitter (@LegalJuice), the bird gets it. And lest you feel complacent because of Mr. Wile E. Coyote’s track record, rumor has it that he is ending his longstanding relationship with Acme for “a more reliable supplier.” When asked if maybe he’s the problem, not the equipment, Mr. Coyote maintained his characteristic silence.

An Italian father who forced his teenage daughters to ski competitively and eat a macrobiotic diet because he was concerned they were too fat has been found guilty of abuse and sentenced to nine months in prison.
The unusual case in Turin may set a precedent in how Italian courts define psychological abuse of children. There are no similar cases of abuse on record.
