    [–] Feds admit to sharing watch list with 1400 private organizations DaSilence 1 points ago in law

    Homeland security subcontracts the operation of many of their detention centers to third parties.

    I would think bring able to run detainees against the list would be pretty critical from a classification perspective.

    [–] Zambia Court Orders Liquidation of Billionaire Leviev’s Company DaSilence 5 points ago in law

    The Zambian High Court placed Frango Finance Ltd., which owns half of Gemcanton Investments Holdings, in compulsory liquidation after receiving a petition on Feb. 18, according to a statement published in the Daily Nation newspaper.

    Leviev will contest the order, said his lawyer, Dickson Jere. “We have been served with an order which was issued without hearing my client,” he said in a text message. “We will be going to challenge it in court as Frango is not even a Zambian-registered company.”

    A couple of questions here:

    1. How can a court in Zambia order the compulsory liquidation of a company 2 days after receiving a petition asking for it? Let alone ex parte? What kind of kangaroo nonsense is this?

    2. Frango Finance appears to be a UK company... what are the odds that a UK court would act to enforce this liquidation order? Greater or less than Musk blasting off to Mars in the next 7 days?

    [–] Tekashi 6ix9ine's full guilty plea revealed DaSilence 15 points ago in law

    In case you were wondering why the hardcore badass rapper is snitching on his whole gang...

    THE COURT: Putting all these mandatory -- consecutive and mandatory minimum provisions together, unless the Court grants a government motion from relief from these mandatory sentences based on your cooperation, you would face a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of 47 years. Do you understand that?

    THE DEFENDANT: Yes, your Honor.

    THE COURT: And to be clear, do you understand that that would just be the minimum and that the Court could impose a sentence of up to life imprisonment?

    THE DEFENDANT: Yes, your Honor.

    [–] The nuclear city goes 100% renewable: Chicago may be the largest city in the nation to commit to 100% renewable energy, with a 2035 target date. And the location says a lot about the future of clean energy. DaSilence 2 points ago in Futurology

    And all of this because the Federal Reserve is privately owned and every dollar the country needs has to be borrowed with interest. Isn't it time the US took back it's right to create it's own money? Imagine debt free money creation. The US government could print money and use it to hire it's people to repair and upgrade its infrastructure with 0 inflation. The time has come.

    That's.... That's not how the monetary system works. You can't just print money and hand it out. That's how you get hyperinflation and end up like any number of countries in South America.

    I generally don't come to reddit comments expecting enlightened commentary on fiscal policy, but understanding the basic tenets of how the global financial system works is kind of core to the discussion you want to have here.

    [–] ICE Set Up A Fake College To Bust Immigrants For Trying To Legally Stay In The Country While They Earned Degrees DaSilence 4 points ago in law

    Retained attorney repeats what client told him to put client in best possible light. Provides no corroboration.

    Next up, the weather.

    Slightly more seriously, given that these stings are aimed more at the brokers than the students, I wouldn't be shocked in the least if the attorney/and/or/student is conflating what they heard from the broker with what they heard from the university.

    [–] Not just Oregon: Saudi students in at least 8 states, Canada vanish while facing criminal charges DaSilence 2 points ago in law

    Not at all because we are talking about this applying to citizens of another country...who deserve zero constitutional protections.

    Well shit, if that's your approach, why even have a trial? Just drag them out back and shoot them.

    Maybe you forgot where you are, but in /r/law, we generally acknowledge longstanding fundamental tenets of law... Like the fact that Constitutional protections apply to everyone inside our borders regardless of citizenship status.

    The rest of your post is just... dumb.

    Oh well. Have a nice life.

    which means your entire family has to be made aware of your situation and participate to get you out. If you are, hypothetically, in jail over a rape charge...and your brother knows you have raped someone before and gotten away with it...then he can essentially "veto" your bail by refusing to disclose his net worth.

    You don't see a constitutional issue here? Good lord man, look at relatively simple intestate probate cases with absent family members. They take years to resolve. And that's here in the US, where we have people who can examine records, and understand the legal issues because most states are close enough that basic tenets hold true.

    If the family says "we don't have shit." Then the forensic accountant just looks for property tax records or business licensing records or divorce records. Then if he finds you paid taxes on a house that you claimed not to own...then his job is done and bail is denied because he has proof that you lied.

    And how, praytell, is said magical forensic accountant going to have access to these records in countries where he does not have subpoena power?

    Or when they're in Portuguese, and Arabic, and Russian, and Chinese?

    How about the complexities of the local (foreign) equivalent of something like an irrevocable living trust?

    How about just the sheer volume issue? According to ICE, 105,140 aliens were arrested for being convicted of a crime (other than immigration violations), and a further 32,977 were arrested with pending criminal charges. That's just the ones that ICE got their hands on.

    I just feel like you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. You don't understand what forensic accountants do, you don't really understand the criminal justice system, and you definitely don't understand the legal ramifications around what you're proposing.

    Pretty much everywhere but US and UK.

    In theory, US and UK do it based on your name appearing on a flight manifest, but it doesn't work very well.

    Immediate family... Father, Mother, siblings...as well as grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

    You've got 2 different definitions here. Grandparents and extended family like aunts/uncles and cousins aren't immediate family.

    Moreover, how is anyone expected to know the net worth of those folks? I personally have something like 30 cousins, some of whom I haven't spoken to since the mid-90's.

    Subpoena not required. The forensic accountant simply asks family for substantiation on anything. They fail to provide documentation...bail denied.

    How does this work, precisely? I know some forensic accountants, and I don't think you understand what they do.

    Let's say I've been arrested for whatever. I'm a Brazilian national. You ask me for my family's assets. I say we don't have shit. Your forensic accountant is going to ask for proof that... we don't own anything? How do you prove a negative? You're asking for documentation of things that doesn't exist. How do I prove the absence of a deed to land I don't own?

    If you are aware of a foolproof alternative idea that has absolutely zero vulnerabilities, exceptions, or imperfections...feel free to contribute your input.

    Brother, I'm not a helicopter pilot. But I can look at this, and tell you that's not what the pilot is supposed to do.

    I feel like you're glossing over the challenges here a touch...

    1. Determining net worth of an individual who lives in the US isn't an easy challenge. You're expanding that to a family (how do you define family?) that lives overseas. Like, beyond our courts ability to subpoena information.

    2. What happens when a family, however you're defining it, has minimal net worth? Do you go back to a normal bail schedule?

    3. What do you do about students who have minimal familial net worth, but are valued by their government for whatever reason? The Emir's driver's son, for example.

    There isn't a magic bullet to be found here. Pretending otherwise just shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how the criminal law system works.
