Article about using a point system to establish guilt or innocence

Help me find an article about using a point system to establish guilt or innocence. I read the article several years ago and the author was advocating a point system to establish guilt. I believe he dissected the evidence given during a major trial and awarded points based on the evidence. The idea was that some evidence was rewarded more points, especially if it was independently verifiable.

What is the box in a cop's locker called if they die?

CopFilter: Years ago I read in a book that cops have a box that they keep in their lockers. The idea is that if they are ever killed in the line of duty, that their partner would get the box and destroy it. I can't, for the life of me remember what the name for this sort of box is called, and what was traditionally kept in it. Can anyone who would be in a position to know help me out?

Does two weeks notice include time spent on jury duty?

If a person gives two weeks notice at a job, but those two weeks include potential jury duty, should you extend the two weeks notice to, say, three? Or is two weeks sufficient, since the employer still gets the full two weeks to find a replacement, whether I'm there or not?
