There's Good News and There's Bad News

This from Battlepanda and Radley Balko: Cory Maye, who's on death row in Mississippi for fatally shooting a policeman who had burst into his house on a drug raid late at night, will be represented in his state Supreme Court appeal by a "top legal firm" for free. Keep your fingers crossed. Meanwhile, sign the petition!

Now for the bad: Charles Noel, whose wife was killed in a no-knock raid, could go to jail for a year because of the half-ounce of pot found at his home. As Balko writes, "Apparently, killing the guy's wife wasn't punishment enough for a pissant amount of marijuana." Balko has more on the killing of Cheryl Lynn Noel here.
