No matter what a person's place in life is, he or she deserves to be treated the same way by law enforcement and the legal system as a whole.

Recently, there have been a plethora of public debates regarding the security measures used by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Back in April, we included a post about a now high-profile criminal case stemming from an alleged incident at the Denver International Airport. A woman has accused a U.S. marine of sexual assault.

Various legal changes regarding medical marijuana were set to take effect as of Jul. 1, but that date did not come without industry advocates challenging the looming regulation shifts.
