Friends try to protect neighbors from crime

http://www.phillyburbs.com

Local Doylestown adults take crime prevention into their own hands. After a string of thefts, young residents are taking matters into their own hands due to ineffectiveness of the kops. Perhaps if they spent less time chasing drug offenses and parking offenses, there would be more time to investigate actual crimes of theft and burglary. These college age vigilates are making a difference in their community and providing a "free" service of protection that helps residents without extracting wealth from their pockets.

Valedictorian speaks out against schooling

http://blog.swiftkickonline.com

Last month, Erica Goldson graduated as valedictorian of Coxsackie-Athens High School. Instead of using her graduation speech to celebrate the triumph of her victory, the school, and the teachers that made it happen, she channeled her inner Ivan Illich and de-constructed the logic of a valedictorian and the whole educational system.

At last, a bit of mindless BritCop brutality for you!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk

Maybe you think it's only American cops who like to indulge in a bit of mindless violence. Well take a look at this bit of film from the dashboard camera of a police car in England. The 70 year old driver of the Range Rover had been stopped earlier apparently for not wearing a seatbelt. He claims to have been reversing (when it is legal not to have your seat belt on) and thought the police had finished giving him a talking to when he drove off.

Some guy's friend gets killed by a drunk driver and he decides to do something about it. He starts a service to keep drunks off the road by offering free rides home. It turns out that Quincy, Illinois, is well stocked with semi-responsible drunks, so "business" booms. He adds another car to the service, and eventually a bus. Local taxi companies are not amused.

Free Staters in custody after city council disruption

http://sentinelsource.com

The article in the Keene Sentinel about Ian, Sam and Monica's arrest. It was edited at 9:20pm (during the show) to say that THREE were arrested, rather than just two (which is what was written when Marc read the article on the show). In fact, it was edited very shortly after Sean pointed out that 3 were arrested.... I guess the folks at the Sentinel listen to FTL?

TSA scares and violates child's personal space

A TSA officer searches a scared 3 year old girl who is already pissed off because she had to put her teddy bear through the x-ray machine. I don't know what is worse: the fact that the mindless TSA employee actually tries to search a 3 year old or that the news reporter father lets it happen as he films and turns it into a story

It's OK to tell police officers to 'f*ck off'

http://www.news.com.au

A QUEENSLAND magistrate has ruled that it is acceptable for people to tell police officers to "f*ck off".

Magistrate Peter Smid yesterday threw out the court case against Mundingburra man Bardon Kaitira, 28, who swore at a female officer outside the Consortium night club on December 20, last year at 2.40am, The Townsville Bulletin reports.

Constable Belinda Young gave evidence that Mr Kaitira used the swear word twice towards her after a group of officers patrolling Flinders St East poured out his girlfriend's drink.
