Thanks LG

I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

My lot (also Glaurung's lot, and TTG4's lot...) are now formally behind legalising weed  :)

It failed in Ohio, but because they didn't do it right.

In all seriousness this is better than some of the stuff our press people come up with sometimes.

The US Supreme Court has one less person with a name like a bond villain on it. Farewell and RIP to Antonin Scalia, probably the Supreme Court's most hardline socially conservative judge.

US accidentally ships sensitive military tech to Cuba. So when you worry about your luggage going the wrong way at the airport...  :P

Grim. Northamptons police force; most of the ones I've met have been nice but this is lowering my estimation of them as a whole.

Grim indeed. I do wonder what sort of training/screening these officers get.

Grim indeed, but I would try not to let it reflect on your estimation of a particular police service, or police in general. They're human beings: none of them are perfect, and some of them commit crimes, like the rest of the human race. It would be interesting to know how the crime rates for police officers match up to those for the population as a whole. One would hope that police commit fewer crimes than the average person.

That is incredibly messed up, but yeah like G said they are just people some are always going to be scumbags. And that's always going to be the case, regardless of how well trained or screened they are. Still, one bastard doesn't have to taint the rest of the police force.
