Video of Detroit raid that left 7yr old dead contradicts police report

http://news.yahoo.com

DETROIT – Police who carried out a raid on a family home that left a 7-year-old girl dead over the weekend were accompanied by a camera crew for a reality television show, and an attorney says video of the siege contradicts the police account of what happened.

Geoffrey Fieger, an attorney for the family of young Aiyana Jones, said he has seen three or four minutes of video of the raid, although he declined to say whether it was shot by the crew for the A&E series "The First 48," which has been shadowing Detroit homicide detectives for months.

U.S. rights group sues to protect right to swear

http://news.yahoo.com

An American rights group is suing the police in Pennsylvania for issuing tickets, which carry a jail sentence, to people for swearing.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which filed the lawsuits earlier, argues that the right to use profanity is protected by the U.S. Constitution.
"Unfortunately, many police departments in the commonwealth do not seem to be getting the message that swearing is not a crime," said Marieke Tuthill of the ACLU of Pennsylvania. "The courts have repeatedly found that profanity, unlike obscenity, is protected speech."

Census supervisor: We may be back with a police officer next time

http://www.youtube.com

It was a beautiful Sunday evening around 7:30PM. I had just finished cooking a dinner of chicken wings & a dessert funnel cake for my wife and kids. I was in the kitchen cleaning up when the doorbell rang. My wife & kids were sitting close to the door, watching an episode of Life on the Discovery Channel. My wife answered the door, which was open to allow the cool breeze to come in. There stood a pair of census enumerators. I immediately walked out of the kitchen, and my wife informed them they would need to speak to me.

Doctor Is Busted For Walking?!!?

http://articles.courant.com

On March 31 he was headed home, on foot as usual, on the far left of South Road. A car came in his direction, which he judged was going too fast and not as far into the middle of the road as he would have liked. As the car approached, Dr. Walsh waved his arms "as I usually do just to make sure the driver can detect motion and see me more clearly." He said the driver saw him but still came within 18 inches of him.

Meet the nano-spiders

http://www.dailymail.co.uk

Scientists have created microscopic robots out of DNA molecules that can walk, turn and even create tiny products of their own on a nano-scale assembly line.

The ground-breaking devices outlined in the journal Nature, could one day lead to armies of surgeon robots that could clean human arteries or build computer components.

In one of the projects a team from New York's Columbia University created a spider bot just four nanometres across. This is about 100,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.
