from the abstract:
"But as helpful as these new forms of centralized data collection might be for investigators, there remains a critical open issue: the systems were not designed to identify the exculpatory and impeaching material prosecutors are required to disclose under Brady v. Maryland. The information exists in the government’s possession, but cannot be obtained because of the way the systems were designed. "

Ideologues react hysterically to the Trump administration’s suggested reforms to campus-rape tribunals. | City Journal
The Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings gave the public a crash course in campus-rape ideology. It is about to get another. Last week, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos released a proposed federal rule that corrects the worst procedural abuses of campus-rape tribunals. It hews closely to judicial precedent and is fair to all parties, yet the feminist establishment has reacted with hysteria, characterizing the draft regulation as an assault on sexual-assault “survivors.” Maintenance of the campus-rape myth, it turns out, is incompatible with due process. Whether feminism itself is compatible with Enlightenment values appears increasingly doubtful.

Apple iOS 11 has a hidden security feature that cops will hate
Hitting the home button five times in quick succession will disable Touch ID, requiring instead the use of a passphrase to unlock the phone. This could come in handy if, say, an activist knew his or her phone was about to be confiscated. In the U.S., police can compel people to unlock their phones with fingerprints but not with passwords.

"Establishing trust with a new computer now becomes a two-step process," the company explains in a blog post, "and requires supplying device passcode in addition to confirming the 'Trust this computer?' prompt."

Alabama gets an 'F' for its civil asset forfeiture laws - Yellowhammer News
So why did Alabama earn an F?

The standard of proof is extremely low; the government must only make a prima facie case to forfeit property. The property owner bears the burden to prove his innocence to get his property back, unless the forfeited property was real property, then the burden is on the government to prove the owner was not innocent. Law enforcement agencies keep 100% of forfeiture funds, and there are no collecting or reporting requirements

Ohio Now Requires Criminal Convictions For Many Civil Forfeiture Cases
Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed a bill today that will require a criminal conviction before law enforcement can permanently confiscate property for many civil forfeiture cases. Only 11 other states have similar or stricter requirements.

“Civil forfeiture is one of the most serious assaults on due process and private property rights in the United States today,” Institute for Justice Legislative Counsel Lee McGrath said in a statement. “Ohio’s new law should protect many from this abuse of power.”

Under the legislation, HB 347, Ohio will set a new threshold for civil forfeiture. To forfeit properties valued at under $15,000, the government must first convict the property’s owner in criminal court.
