Alex Little Weighs in on Drone Memo that Justifies Killing of American Islamic Militant

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little appeared on FOX News yesterday in a story on the release of a memo formally acknowledging the CIA’s role in a drone program that resulted in the 2011 killing of an American Islamic militant. Talking to anchor Shepard Smith, Alex commented on how the U.S. government justified the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki without due process of law. “They justify it predominately under the theory that he’s an enemy, we’re at war, and we can kill enemies at war. That’s the base motivation that’s going on behind this memo.” They discussed possible concerns over a government making exceptions to the legal course in the future, based on this occurrence.

Alex Little Discusses Murder Trial of Michael Dunn with Fox News

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little talked with Fox News anchor Jamie Colby this weekend about the continuation of jury deliberations in the Michael Dunn murder trial. Dunn was found guilty of attempted second-degree murder Saturday, but the jury was partially hung on the murder decision against him in the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Citing self-defense, Dunn testified that the teenager threatened him and that he thought he saw a gun in the SUV Davis and his friends were driving.

“Self-defense cases are incredibly difficult because the instructions are complex, and I think jurors tend to think of themselves more in the place of the defendant in a self-defense case than in any other time...because you wonder what you would do in a similar situation. You’ve got 12 people in there, and you’ve got to convince all 12 beyond a reasonable doubt that he didn’t act in self-defense, and that can be very difficult to do,” he said.

FOX News Interviews Alex Little about Thieves Using Credit Card Skimmers to Steal Information

FOX News’ Shepard Smith interviewed Bone McAllester Norton Alex Little last week about scammers using a small device that looks like computer hardware to steal credit card information. Thieves are placing the devices into computer ports on cash registers, which scan every detail being done on that port, including processing credit cards.

“Most likely, they’re not gonna use that themselves. They are going to sell that credit card number on the Internet to somebody else,” he told Smith. “You really have an obligation at the end of every month to check your bill very closely.”
