GUILTY: Cruel & Unusual Punishment

There seems to be no end to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals propensity to drive their judicial oversight states back to the dark ages. And that comparison isn’t hyperbole – not when we are talking about a Federal Court that just OK’d the shackling of pregnant women while in labor. If that’s not […]
