Given the current political climate and culture in America, I'm surprised that shooting looters hasn't become policy here too.  At least at the state level ala Tennessee passing the law making it legal to run over protesters in the road with your car.

1) A 17.5% surcharge to pay a parking fine with a credit card?!?
2) You gotta see the attorney's haircut!

~Do what thou will~

Don't miss this little 1-2 punch:

...the detective assigned to the case, David Abbott, obtained a signed warrant to take photographs of Sims' naked body—including "the suspect’s erect penis"—so that he could compare them to Sims' explicit messages.
...
Abbott committed suicide in December 2015 when officers came to arrest him on separate charges relating to pedophilia.

During the #J20 protests, a small group of demonstrators smashed the windows of Starbucks and Bank of America, spray-painted cars, and overturned several newspaper boxes. Importantly, the prosecution has made no attempt to claim that the defendants were among them. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff has instead argued that the defendants were “playing a role” in the violence. That’s right: The government is trying to set the precedent that if you’re at a protest and someone else smashes a window, it’s your fault.

Police deputy chief accused of throwing stress ball at colleague.

I should just put his name and "excessive force" into my news tickler to catch when he finally snaps.

Honestly, does anybody think that prison is about reform any more? It's a *penal* institution, not charm school.

Call it what you want, it's a permanent underclass. It's slavery, for misdemeanors to murder.

Police in the Dutch city of Rotterdam have launched a new pilot programme which will see them confiscating expensive clothing and jewellery from young people if they look too poor to own them.

I'd like to clear cut and shoot every last fuckwit popularizing that spelling. The word is LEAD and the story itself is a text book example of how not to write a news story.

I've always used it in it's journalistic context in order to not conflate it with the other definitions of "lead".

But I agree, that story was written by an ignoramus. Starting paragraphs with "But" indeed...
