I'm not surprised. When police wear cameras documenting their interactions with citizens, complaints go way down.

This is a nice confirmation of David Brin's Surveillance Society hypothesis, that if much broader surveillance by government and business is, as is likely, inevitable, one of the best things we can do is provide citizens with the ability to watch back.  Interesting, here, though, is that it's not citizens with cellphones, but cops wearing always-on cameras, that provide the check on police behavior.  From the article:

"The results from the first 12 months [of the study] are striking. Even with only half of the 54 uniformed patrol officers wearing cameras at any given time, the department over all had an 88 percent decline in the number of complaints filed against officers, compared with the 12 months before the study, to 3 from 24."

"Rialto’s police officers also used force nearly 60 percent less often — in 25 instances, compared with 61. When force was used, it was twice as likely to have been applied by the officers who weren’t wearing cameras during that shift, the study found. And, lest skeptics think that the officers with cameras are selective about which encounters they record, Mr. Farrar noted that those officers who apply force while wearing a camera have always captured the incident on video."

Wow. Read this one to the end. Paul Levy tells an amazing story about animal rights, human rights, and the double standard.

It's a sport, apparently. An off-shoot of dog agility trials, this sport sees the dog and handler undertake a series of challenges, it could be crawling under trucks or, as is the case here, swimming through a trough of water. Either way, the dog is the one who looks most in control here

LOL. From the Atlantic, a Chinese observer's solution to the piracy vs. freedom debate:

"If the United States continues its dalliance with censorship as copyright enforcement, it will be the laughingstock of other countries, which see how disproportionate our enforcement of copyright has been, relative to our protection of other freedoms. As one Chinese man commented, "I've come up with a perfect solution: You can come to China to download all your pirated media, and we'll go to America to discuss politically sensitive subjects.""
