Polls this early normally don't mean anything, but unfortunately this year they do.  We really should hear a debate this Thursday among the candidates who have a realistic chance of being the Republican nominee, but it looks like at least one will be cut out.When the balloons drop about a year from now, the nominee will be a person whose views are consistent with those of the…

    A 29-year-old Elk Grove man is accused of beating a dog and then fleeing from police, who caught him before making a grim discovery — the dog dead inside a barbecue, according to media reports out of Sacramento. KCRA-TV reported that the case began at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, when Elk Grove police responded to a report of a man beating a small dog, which was identified as a chihuahua or a beagle or a mix of the two, in his yard. Arriving officers saw smoke in the home — the suspect had allegedly set a fire — and ordered him to come out, but he ran off briefly before being

    San Francisco police released video Tuesday of four teenagers breaking into and ransacking a hat store at the Stonestown Galleria shopping mall last month. In the video, which was captured June 22 just before 10 p.m., one of the teens can be seen lifting the security gate while the other three scramble underneath and into the store. One of the three runs to the back while the other two set about picking out hats from the wall. The footage makes it appear that the thieves are seeking out specific teams or colors, as opposed to going for maximum loot. After a little more than 90 seconds, the…

    It’s a bad idea, which can have dangerous and even fatal consequences, to encourage a friend to drive faster than the law allows. A state appeals court says it can also be expensive. The Fourth District Court of Appeal in San Diego reinstated a lawsuit this week against a woman who was a passenger in a car on a trip to a drugstore in the Riverside County town of Rubidoux on Thanksgiving Day November 2009. As they entered the street, which had a 25-mph speed limit, Hayley Meyer told her friend to speed up because it was fun driving fast over the dips in the road, the court said. The driver,

The boy, 13-year-old Redmond Collins, along with his two younger brothers, were home alone on their first day of summer vacation when a man walked in — but was scared off by their dog. “The first time, he just walked right into our house. Then, that’s when my dog scared him out and then he came back trying to bust into the house,” Collins told KGO. Collins told the station that he locked all the windows and the front door, but that the man tried to break through it. He picked up

  • $11M Prison Managed Access Jamming Called “A Complete And Utter Waste Of Money”

    Brian
    24 Jul 2015 | 11:27 am
    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - A cautionary tale for prisons contemplating shelling out millions of dollars for managed access systems to jam contraband cell phones. A prison in New Zealand has spent over $11M (US) in installation and upgrades on a cellular signal jamming system that has not prevented the ongoing use of wireless devices. Taxpayers have forked out $17 million on cellphone jamming technology for prisons – but inmates continue to be caught with increasing numbers of contraband mobile phones. Despite a network blocking system designed to stop Mt Eden prisoners using…

The FCC, in its Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (SFNPRM), proposed the elimination of the payment of site commissions as a category to correctional facilities, including jails. On January 12, 2015, NSA’s submitted a cost survey to the FCC which provided information on the cost to Sheriffs to provide…
  • Phones In Cells At NZ’s Newest Prison

    Brian
    7 May 2015 | 8:03 am
    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - As we have commented before, we believe that contraband cell phones are a problem of both supply and demand. Due to the demand for cell phones in prison, there is an active and highly lucrative pipeline of supply. Most prison administrations have focused on restricting the supply of contraband cell phones through detection, jamming and search. However, like the problem of drug smuggling, without addressing the demand for contraband, the problem will never be solved. In addition to reducing the demand for, and therefore the supply of, contraband cell…

    On November 18, 1978, in a remote settlement of northwestern Guyana, 909 Americans lost their lives in what is considered to be the largest mass suicide of the twentieth century. This compound, informally known as Jonestown, was established by a charismatic preacher named Jim Jones who led his People’s Temple to their ultimate demise. In this episode, we welcome Julia Scheeres, author of the book “A Thousand Lives: The Untold Story of Jonestown“, to tell us the story of how this story evolved into a tragedy.

Although we’d like to think we have evolved, this story which mirrors the insanity of the Salem Witch Trials shows, that perhaps, we have not. In the early 80’s a madness was brewing.

The case of Carlyle Harris was a classic of its time and links well into another of New York’s classic murders, that committed by another doctor named Robert Buchanan a couple of years later. I’ll be covering the Buchanan case in due course but, for now, we’ll be looking at Harris’s crime. Carlyle Harris was a medical student in New York in the 1890’s.

Many people think they are okay to drive, when in fact they are not. You never know until it is too late. The truth is that most people do not know when they are too drunk to drive. Some people drive because they are unsure whether or not they are too drunk to drive. Some actually feel like they are perfectly fine to drive. No one is…
