SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

USCIS Assists in Two Significant Immigration Fraud Prosecutions
On April 20, 2018, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a news release detailing how its Los Angeles Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS) unit assisted in the investigation and ultimately successful prosecution of two immigration fraud perpetrators.
Response to : Does Canada Have Free Speech?
When reading legislative material, adopting a legal framework is essential to a full understanding of the subject matter. This video, by famed youtuber Gregory "The Armoured Skeptic" Fluhrer is a pretty vivid example of what the lack of framework can do to an interpretation of the law. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVVDQnkqh8M I would strongly recommend watching the video in full before reading my response as it attacks the issue point by point with the appropriate time-stamps. Once again, none of this is legal advice.
Debate on how forgetting your wallet can get you 2 years in prison
On the Net, scaremongering is a pretty usual tactic in order to move a political agenda. This debate happened in the comment section of a video with the oh so clickbaity title of "Licensed Gun Owner Gets 2 Years For Forgetting Wallet at Home??" Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtfiT63E8g0&google_comment_id=z12odvnwsquawtma004chrf4npr2gdgoc2s Spoiler: this did not happen. The content therein is an opinion piece and should not be construed as legal advice.
