"On its surface, a case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court may seem to be legally trivial; it’s about a juvenile who stole from neighborhood houses. But J.D.B. v. North Carolina could redefine both the law’s 'reasonable person' standard and what it means to be in custody. The case is a bellwether on the status of children’s rights and how far America has slid into a police state." (03/29/11)
