WALKING THAT RADLEY BALKO BEAT: Not every story of prosecutor or law enforcement overreach that Radley brings up is equally outrageous--not sure where I'd place this one, wherein some dude is arrested because he had some porn in his suitcase that looked like it involved an underage actress. And then he was held for months when it would have taken one phone call to the actress' representatives to prove she was of age. You know what? Picking up a phone is pretty easy. Keeping somebody incarcerated for months for want of a phone call--that's pretty bad. I'm placing this as "above average" relative to the various outrages Radley's brought to our attention over the years.
