This is the most interesting thing I've written in a while, largely because the study it's based on is the most interesting thing I've read in a while.

In the Internet age, mugshots turn every crime--no matter how petty or victimless--into one with a life sentence. We should exempt them from open records laws.

I belive it has the potential to pay big dividends so long as the states and the fed dont tax it so high causr im certain thers is overhead involved as in anything else they just simply need to leave a lil meat on the bone so everyone can live.

It's not impossible that we could soon have the guy in charge of stop-and-frisk running the TSA.

In the first six months of 2013, 100 percent of the people bitten by L.A. County Sheriff's Department canines were black or hispanic, according to the report from PARC, which serves as special counsel to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. “While the number of annual bites of Anglos, Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans has remained consistently low from 2004 through 2012,” the report states, “89 percent of the total bites in the same time period were of Latinos or Blacks. This 89 percent is an increase from a still troublesome 85 percent in the 1990s.”

Young people in New York who have been stopped and frisked appear to trust the police less, which makes them less likely to call the police when they should, which in turn makes it harder for the police to do their jobs

If I weren't looking at an engineering job that required some basic level of security clearance, I'd be tempted to try and recreate this.
