Today is World Widow Day.
Did you know that widows are more likely to face financial hardship, including homelessness? That we face cultural and familial stigma?
Did you know every four days 10,000 Americans become widows?

I've prepared a longer list of easy disclaimers for journalists that can also serve as teaching tools or guides for anyone reading an article about crime: https://t.co/woCjkTaWHH
Barry Friedman @barryfriedman1
Concerns with Amazon’s plan to have Alexa able to mimic anyone’s voice are many, but tweeps - especially private law - I’m curious about liability when this is used to entice someone into a a crime against them . . . just one of many horribles I imagine.
ruth is Running Up That Hill @Ruth_Mensch
My crim pro professor once described criminal procedure as con law but no strict scrutiny/barely any remedies and that feels somehow even more true today.
NEW: The Supreme Court ruled today that you can’t sue the police for failing to read your Miranda rights to you.
This dangerous decision widens the gap between what the Constitution guarantees and what we can hold our government accountable for.
We still have the right against self-incrimination, and police generally will still have to inform you of your rights to remain silent and have an attorney.
But under today’s decision, you can’t seek damages if law enforcement violates these Fifth Amendment rights.
Miranda warnings have been crucial to police interactions with the public for 60 years since Miranda v. Arizona.
We fought for the Supreme Court to recognize these rights, and we’ll keep fighting to make sure our country lives up to the Constitution’s guarantees.
NYC Books Through Bars @BtBsNYC
Less than 7 days left to buy the June bundle. Please help us get 200 copies of these amazing books. All of them will be sent to people in prison or jail who write us in need of reading material. Order at https://t.co/EPhGwhaz3O https://t.co/JAhS7Dpeev
How about we stop using police as a jobs programs and create actual jobs programs? We should invest in communities to prevent violence, not continue to pay for police that not only can’t prevent violence, but perpetuates violence https://t.co/tuo5kASEME
Keith Boykin @keithboykin
So, as I understand the Supreme Court, the government can arrest and jail you without Miranda rights, execute you even if your lawyer screws up, force you to have a baby, and use tax dollars to support religion.
But it can't protect your right to vote or keep you safe from guns.
Matt Cameron @matt_cam
Today's court would never reach the legendary Warren Court holdings which provide the only protections between many of the people in this room and egregious acts of state misconduct. Many of its members are actively committed to ending them. Thurgood Marshall scowls for us all
Rahna Epting @rahnamepting
Today 6 SCOTUS justices who go to work every day in one of the most well-guarded buildings in the country ruled against commonsense gun control laws to protect students, teachers, grocery store clerks, and doctors that go to school and work every day without such a privilege.
Puff the Magic Hater @MsKellyMHayes
What about funding healthcare? Housing? Loan forgiveness?
*shakes magic eight ball*
Outlook not so good.
But somehow, there is endless money for the people who will one day arrest you when you take to the streets in protest demanding those things. See how that works?
Puff the Magic Hater @MsKellyMHayes
When they couldn't bury how egregious the police response in Uvalde was, the mission became one of isolation. This was exceptional, we are told. But it's not. It's completely consistent w the nature & character of policing and the powerful are scrambling to obscure that reality.
Matt Cameron @matt_cam
In this courtroom full of Black faces a white judge is being assisted by white clerks, white court officers, + a white probation rep while white prosecutors + defense attorneys (including me ofc) litigate cases controlled by white-majority SJC + SCOTUS rulings. Welcome to Boston

NY Public Library @nypl
'The Women's House of Detention: A Queer History of a Forgotten Prison' by @Hugh_Ryan
explores the roots of queer and trans incarceration, connecting misogyny, racism, state-sanctioned sexual violence, colonialism, sex work, and more.
a crew of folks connected to people at WICC are raising commissary funds and funds for folks returning home from prison.

Belly of the Beast @BOTBFilm
Gaining justice for survivors and reckoning with the state’s history of abuse is “not only a reproductive health issue [it’s a] racial justice issue,” said Lorena García Zermeño, at @Latinas4RJ

Absolutely delighted that UNISON, one of Britain’s biggest trade unions, has just voted at their conference to end their support for the Nordic model and instead support sex worker safety, decriminalisation and trade union organising ✊

Tony Cheng @tonykcheng
Excited to share my new AJS article!
Why are police-community meetings dominated by demands for MORE policing? The exact ones scholars argue are deeply flawed
I show how America's largest police force cultivates constituents & curates complaints🧵
