The Lazarus File. "In 1986, a young nurse named Sherri Rasmussen was murdered in Los Angeles. Police pinned down no suspects, and the case gradually went cold. It took 23 years—and revolutionary breakthroughs in forensic science—before LAPD detectives could finally assemble the pieces of the puzzle. When they did, they found themselves facing one of the unlikeliest murder suspects in the city’s history." [more inside]

What you watch
can now get you arrested. 115, yes 115
people were jailed for attending a club where there was a live sex show on stage. Of course, the cops watched the show for three hours
before busting them all.
I wonder how many murders were committed that same night in Atlanta..

A 9-year-old girl has been arrested on sex charges, perhaps the youngest suspect ever to face such charges in Manchester, local police say. [...] The alleged incident occurred in the fall, when the girl and three other children a 3-year-old boy and two girls, 4 and 5 were playing in a bedroom, [Police Sgt. John] Maston said. The girl is charged with initiating sex between the younger children and then with her, Maston said.

I admit I don't have all the facts, but it seems like this little girl's life about to be ruined because a game of Doctor went out of hand.

First arrest made.
"The suspect was arrested because authorities have determined that the individual has information highly relevant to the investigation and is a high-flight risk". Also Richmond, VA and Atlanta, GA were revealed to be targets by the FBI.

Senator Biden says
that yesterday's arrests at NY airports were NOT connected to Tuesday's attacks, and those arrested were not carrying knives.

I still can't get over the fact that the U.S. President and Vice President have been arrested five times between them. For those keeping score, that's 2 DUIs for Cheney and one for Bush
, and two disorderly conducts for Bush
I know, I know, many other presidents have committed far greater crimes, these were mistakes of youth, etc. etc.
But five arrests between them? Sigh.
