The ethical problem with red light cameras

The movement to place cameras at intersections and traffic signals so that red light runners and reckless drivers are spotted has only increased in the past 20 years. Many states and major cities use such cameras, usually to catch people who blast through a red light. Other states that don't have the cameras seem to be considering them on a near-annual basis. It's a critical issue, both for public safety and for personal privacy.

To many North Dakota residents, to hear the phrase "on probation" probably invokes a feeling of relief. Probation could signify that someone was given a "light punishment" for a minor crime, or that a person is simply being supervised after being released from jail to try to assimilate them back into society. Basically, "probation" may be related with "easy" in the minds of many.

Woman jailed after faking rape claims, man released from jail

It's a universally accepted truth that rape is a terrible crime. But if there is one thing worse than this violent and terrible sex crime, it is lying about rape and getting someone convicted as a result. Such an abhorrent case is unfolding outside of Minnesota as a 38-year-old woman used makeup on her body to give the illusion of bruising, and even went so far as to self-mutilate to create disturbing injuries.

2013 saw most criminal exonerations since the 1980s

There have been recent movements to review past criminal cases that are "questionable," to say the least, and thus allowing potentially innocent "criminals" out of jail. One prime example of this movement is The Innocence Project, an organization that works towards freeing people who were convicted under wrongful circumstances (more specifically, they contest these questionable cases through DNA testing and evidence).
