Em Carpenter

Em was one of those argumentative children who was sarcastically encouraged to become a lawyer, so she did. She is a proud life-long West Virginian, and, paradoxically, a liberal. In addition to writing about society, politics and culture, she enjoys cooking, podcasts, reading, and pretending to be a runner. She will correct your grammar. You can find her on Twitter.

    L10 – This is why I do my bike thievery in Alberta, where helmets are not mandatory.

    L6 – I just can’t understand how a person can be prosecuted that many times for the same crime. Both from a double jeopardy perspective, and from the basic perspective of, if the prosecutor has had two or so attempts thrown out, isn’t there some superior who can take him off the case next time?Report
