Website libel and the single publication rule
The single publication rule states that only one cause of action for libel arises when a mass publication of the statement in question occurs. The unique features of the World Wide Web have called into question standards for determining the initial publication and republications of potentially libelous material. Such material on the Web should be considered to have been republished when it is altered or when it is presented to an audience other than its original intended audience.

The color of crime: the case against race-based suspect descriptions
The use of racial catagories, such as "black", to describes crime suspects, gives law enforcement officers too much power and may contribute to discrimination. Because the concept of race is changeable and subjective, it does little good in identifying suspects. This could be remedied by dropping such racial descriptions and using a more precise chart of human skin tones instead.
