TAMPA — A Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy arrested on a boating under the influence charge last month is in the clear after prosecutors declined to move forward with the case.

Still unclear, however, is whether Alexander Craver will get his job back.

Craver, 28, of Riverview was arrested July 1 after a Sheriff’s Office marine patrol deputy stopped the pontoon boat Craver was piloting in Tampa Bay near a spoil island off Apollo Beach. The deputy smelled alcohol on Craver’s breath and he performed poorly on field sobriety tests, an arrest report says.

Stand Your Ground Laws Are More Common Than You Probably Think

To be fair, the explainer itself isn’t too bad; unlike a lot of media coverage, it makes clear what Stand Your Ground does and does not do:

Under standard self-defense laws, someone who’s facing a dangerous threat must retreat if it’s safe to do so, with use of force only legally available as a last resort — what’s called the “duty to retreat.” So through this standard, you can only use deadly force if you cannot safely avoid harm or death by, for example, running away or hiding.

CNN's Chris Cuomo seems to think it's okay to assault Nazis. He did not say so Monday night. Instead he strongly implied it throughout a five-minute monologue, in which he dredged up every canard justifying attacking Nazi protesters without actually saying it's okay to attack Nazi protesters, all while maintaining that he was scandalized by the violent elements of Antifa that were on full display at Sunday's "Unite the Right" rally.

Superior Court Judge Kimberly Esmond Adams denied requests for an injunction against Georgia’s campus carry law. Campus carry was signed into law by Gov. Nathan Deal (R) on March 4, 2017, and took effect on July 1, 2017. It allows concealed carry permit holders to carry their guns on public school campuses for self-defense. However, carrying in “dormitories, fraternity and sorority houses, and buildings used for athletic events” is still prohibited.

The February 14, 2018, attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was an act of evil carried out by a determined man, but it was also a tragedy that might have been prevented – or at least cut short – by serious safety precautions and/or a better law enforcement response. AWR discusses this with school safety proponent Hunter Pollack on this week’s Bullets.

Things are getting competitive for criminals these days, but there’s also some good news. All criminals can gain a big edge by moving to California. In 2014, the Golden State passed Proposition 47, the so-called Reduced Penalties for Some Crimes Initiative. This changed several felonies such as shoplifting, receiving stolen property and car break-ins into misdemeanors.

Recently, a buddy called me and asked if I would check out his Ruger 10/22. It was “jamming,” as he described it. That seemed strange because 10/22s are famous for being reliable. When he brought it over, the problem was obvious: The rifle had not been cleaned in a long time—perhaps ever. My buddy is far from being a gun guy. A firearm means no more to him than a hammer does to a carpenter. He needs it to dispatch vermin around his place or put meat on the table, but maintaining it is a concept vacant from his wheelhouse.
