No one likes to recall his failures. But rushed, wrong CNN/Fox News stories on the Supreme Court’s Obamacare ruling reminded me of my descent into rushed, botched reporting.

Photographing Police is a Dangerous Business

Are increasingly militarized local police — helmets, assault rifles, black uniforms and boots, etc. — using excessive force more often than previous generations? Or has technology — cell phones and YouTube — made any use of force, whether excessive or justified, easier to document?
