Who Is Policing The Police?

Did you know that police departments are partially funded by their own ticket enforcement program. In case you haven't paid close attention to the news, were are in the worst economic shape since the depression. Included in this recession are state and local governments that are looking for ways to cut back. One of the suggested ways is job cuts and demotions. Police are part of local government and being on this bandwagon are no exception to the rule. They have been faced with budget cuts and are looking to also lay off officers as a result of budget cuts.

It should come as no surprise that one way to counteract the layoffs is to generate more revenue for the departments. Departments looked at new ways to generate revenue but the tried and true method for departments has been citations. This is a billion dollar industry country wide and has nothing to do with public safety. Sure citations deter some behavior, but that can be accomplished through other means. Driver education and safety programs could solve some of the safety issues but that will not generate the money as quick cash from the public's pockets. This comes from the publics wallet and is easily converted to instant asset generation.

When you are arrested for a crime, the only thing that can only help get out of a jam is with the help of a criminal defense lawyer. You can choose who wants to represent you which shouldn抰 be a problem if you have money but if you don抰, you will have to settle with whoever the court appoints for you. But for those who can hire one, here are a few tips to help you select a professional.

First, when you meet the criminal defense lawyer, you should ask how long has he or she been practicing criminal law and also how many cases did they win. Surely you don抰 want to work with a lawyer who is fresh out of college or has never won a case. You also don抰 want to work with someone who chooses to settle the matter out of court very often because you will probably get the shorter end of the stick when you decide to go for the plea bargain.

Automobile Lemon Law - Pertinent Facts About Lemon Laws

Lemon laws were created to protect the consumer who is buying a product that has a manufacturer's warranty, in most cases a vehicle. After purchase they find out that the vehicle has reoccurring mechanical problems which the dealer seemingly cannot fix. Also if a vehicle cannot be driven for 30 days, because of the defect in the vehicle, then it can be deemed a lemon. Some of the things that can be done to correct these problems are cash reimbursements, refund of the original purchase price, or even a new vehicle replacement. In most states if a consumer files a suit under the lemon laws, and is declared the winner, then the judge can award the court costs to the consumer also. Usually a suit under the lemon laws is brought about within the first year of the consumer owning the vehicle, or within the first 12,000 miles. Most states offer help in researching a lemon law.

Man is a prey to his emotions and untoward situation which many times come to him without a prior notice. He is not his own master, but lies at the mercy of fortune which sometimes cause bad things happen to good people. No criminal is by birth a criminal but it is the circumstances which make him do so. There is a range of biological, psychological, and social causes that affect human behavior. There are many situations under which a person can do things that could be considered as crime. They can do an act or behavior that could violate or breach any rule of political, moral or criminal laws subjected to punishment or public prosecution.

However the law is all essential to maintain peace and order in the society, this is the law that sometimes punishes innocent people only because of this that the accused people find themselves unable to prove their innocence; either due to lack of evidences or due to their ignorance of the particular criminal law. The fact that the law is blind and there are many faults in law also depicts that many times there are different punishments for different people for the same criminal charge. Also there are many criminal charges that present possible punishment ranges of anything from probation to many years or life in prison depending on the severity of charges.
