The DOJ Twitter feed



The Department of Justice has a Twitter feed that issues a tweet or two a day; you may or may not be surprised that there is not a single tweet between October 6 and October 18 that isn't entirely related to local crime issues—though there was one case involving a fatal 2008 beating of an illegal immigrant where the DOJ issued a press release for a successful federal conviction under the federal Fair Housing Act (!) with potential consequences of life in prison. Teenagers Brandon Piekarsky and Derrick Donchak, who had confronted 25-year-old Luis Ramirez and his 15-year-old girlfriend, had been acquitted of murder in state court, but sentenced to six to twenty-three months on lesser charges.
