Via the New York Times – US approves targeted killings…
CCTV cameras not helping anybody solve the vast majority of crimes – but certainly keeping people off the unemployment rolls…
(I’m still doing screen captures of articles – but WordPress seems to smoosh the ones I post to illegiblity. If I figure out what I’m doing wrong, I’ll update the post…)
All over the place, but I read it on Balko’s website ———————–>
Good to know somebody’s looking back at the State…
Ya don’t say…CCTVs have a “modest” effect on crime, but don’t cut it completely? That money would be better spent on security officers? Sheesh – learn something new every day…
I told you, boy, my threats were only meant

Now let Daddy go, and he’ll give you a cookie!
Don’t have a cow, man! Obama’s gonna try

Bart loads Homer head first into the back of a APC with “DHS” painted badly on the side. Homer groans in pain.
If only I had donated to the ACLU!

Short review of The Dunwich Horror (2009) – nothing much to recommend it – saw it for free ’cause my cable company messed up my service and gave me a free movie coupon to use for on demand. Jeffery Combs does his best, but sticking out your jaw and acting like you’re a microencephalatic does not make for a memorable character. Dean Stockwell – meh. A couple of promising effects shots of Lovecraftian monsters at the beginning, but they fall apart by the end of the picture. I didn’t mind it being set in the bayous, but everything was too clean!
And just for you folks who have nothing to hide – don’t come to Wisconsin… (via Balko, to the right)
Nice of them to inform the good residents of Carroll – perhaps they can also sell Girl Scout cookies as well while training up.
