Can Victims’ Rights Go Too Far?

Can Victims’ Rights Go Too Far?It takes a certain type of person to oppose a law named after a young woman murdered in her prime that purports to protect victims’ rights. This is doubly true when the primary force behind that law is a grieving brother who also happens to be a billionaire. In 2018, voters in Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Georgia passed versions of Marsy’s Law, joining five states that already had such measures on the books. The Marsy’s Law for All campaign says these constitutional amendments “give victims of crime equal rights that are already afforded to the accused and convicted,” such as the right to be notified about and to speak at court proceedings. A motley crew of critics sees things differently. They range from the usual suspects, such as defense attorneys and state affiliates of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), to former…

Alex Jones has a secondary YouTube channel where he claims the New Zealand mosque shooting…Melissa Joskow / Media Matters Although YouTube has banned several channels associated with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Infowars site, the outlet still maintains a secondary channel and is using it to claim that the the mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques were “false flag” attacks.

Rider Magazine, February 2019

Rider Magazine, February 2019From an adventure bike convert: beauty is much more than skin deep. In my mid-teens, it was a dirt bike that gave me the freedom to explore the countryside, forests and mountains. Moving on to my late teens, I added a 650 Triumph to my garage. Fast-forward to my late twenties, and I began what would become a 20-year period of riding Harleys. Beautiful to look at when clean and comfortable when ridden on smooth roads, these bikes gave me many miles of pleasure, but something was missing. By happenstance one day, I stumbled upon a BMW dealership hosting demo rides.  There in front of me was this bike with a beak, square, industrial-looking bags, a humped faux gas tank, plastic fenders and not a bit of chrome in sight. I wasn’t sure what to make of the design, but my first impression of the bike was not favorable. The BMW representative…
