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.

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.

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?
