Friday, January 5th, 2018
Imagine spending two months in jail for a robbery that you didn’t commit. Well, that is exactly what happened to an Iowa man after he was falsely charged with first-degree robbery.
Now he is suing the prosecutor that threw him in jail.
Joseph McBride, 23, was arrested for his assumed role in a January 2017 home invasion robbery in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Miami-Dade Prosecutor Loses Landmark Right To Record Case In Federal Court

Monday, July 17th, 2017
A Florida man won the right to surreptitiously record police officers while making internal affairs complaints without the threat of prosecution when he defeated the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office (SAO) in a federal appeals court ruling.
Prosecutors tried to censor the citizen, who published his incriminating recording of a police chief.
A lower court erred by agreeing with Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle when she sent a written threat of prosecution under Florida’s wiretapping statute to Dr. Eric McDonough, for making a secret recording and publishing it on to YouTube, in a video which you can see below.
Federal judges on the 11th Circuit

We have pictures to prove it.
It all started when the prosecutor sent a tweet about freedom.
This exclusive report is based upon public records requested from the Miami-Dade SAO’s office under Florida’s Sunshine Law, including their social media policy, which as it turns out does not specify that a public official in their office has any allowance to censor citizens by blocking access to their public posts.
Miami residents are in an uproar

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016
Despite only testing positive for caffeine, a California prosecutor is pursuing DUI charges against a man arrested during a traffic stop last year.
Solano County District Attorney Krishna Abrams admits it will be a “very difficult challenge” to convict the man. Especially considering she has absolutely no evidence.
But since when did lack of evidence ever stop a prosecutor from moving forward with an unlawful arrest?
Meanwhile, Joseph Schwab, 36, is having to needlessly spend money on an attorney to keep himself out of jail for driving under the influence of caffeine.
However, Abrams insists she is not prosecuting him for driving under
