Secret paroles?

Oklahoma County’s top prosecutor accuses the state Pardon and Parole Board of illegally considering the early release of some inmates.


News

Phil Bacharach
Tim Sharp was shocked when he heard from his aunt last month that the woman who had killed his father in a drunk-driving accident was up for parole. The inmate, Maelene Chambers, had served only four years of a 10-year manslaughter prison sentence for the 2006 death, and Sharp knew that manslaughter was one of more than 20 state crimes in which offenders were required to serve at least 85 percent of their sentence.

TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay — Away from Keyboard

The torrent site’s founders get a legal lesson IRL.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I first heard of The Pirate Bay when a friend told me about this site where he had just downloaded and watched Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle — then in theaters — at the comfort of his own home.

It hardly seemed worth the trouble. Obviously, I’m in the minority, as the site claims more than 25 million active users worldwide, who share movies, music, video games and other copyrighted works via torrent files.
