What happens if your roommate's selling drugs?

Last week we talked about a group of search warrants that were executed at Missouri State University on suspicion of drug charges. In one of those cases a suspect's roommates allowed law enforcement officials to search their bedrooms that were attached to a common area.

A series of recent investigations at Missouri State University highlights some issues surrounding warranted searches and how police conduct drug investigations.

DNA collection and the presumption of innocence

Last week the Supreme Court of the United States heard arguments in a case that will shape the future of evidence collections and criminal justice across the country.

St. Louis officer faces disciplinary action

A St. Louis patrolman is facing disciplinary proceedings after he struck a man with a baton, choked him and slammed his head into the bumper of a patrol car. He is the subject of a disciplinary trial aimed at determining whether he should be reinstated after his suspension is over. The victim in this case was suspected of trespassing at a downtown casino and was placed in handcuffs. While arresting him, the officer in question allegedly used excessive force, racial slurs and obscenities. Surveillance video at the scene showed the officer choking the suspect and slamming his head against the bumper. A casino paramedic testified that the officer also struck the suspect with a baton.
