Re: Police use mugshots for target practice

what it looks like is that they wanted to cheap out on buying the targets used by agencies everywhere else for the facial recognition drills and just used file photos from their mug shots. Plain white stock paper is so much cheaper than buying those targets.

Origionally, yes. it was hijacked later by some other charities I thought they hijacked it from people just donating to their own choice of charities.

Re: Companies surrender to terrorists over The Interview.

Am I the only one who thinks that a threat from North Korea to start a war over a silly movie is about as credible as that threat ISIS made about attacking in the US on the anniversary of 9/11 this year? which is to say it was not credible at all.

Re: General Police Abuse Thread

So you think that if someone called in about a white person who was suspicious because he was walking with his hands in his pockets, a police officer would have been sent to stop him until he took his hands out of his pockets? many police departments have adopted a "you call, we come" policy, where...

Re: Tracking police driving habits

In this day and age, they should require cops to wear cameras/mics and GPS trackers while on duty. And gaps in those recordings should be treated as an admission of guilt of misconduct. Of course, undercover, plainclothes, or other such instances where (invasion of) privacy would occur, should be e...

that may be true in areas subject to the full weather spectrum of rain, sun and wind. But what about where it is semi-protected from that such as with the rock in the picture?

On the one hand, it can't be much worse than Superman Returns . . . such a boring movie. There's plenty worse than Returns. Superman IV, anybody? I do agree Superman Returns wasn't a particularly good movie, and a pretty sorry excuse for a Superman movie. Superman The Movie was saddled with having ...

We have laws against using a cell phone when driving in Minnesota - people still do it anyhow. Is the enforcement lax? Are the penalties weak? Or is it both?
