I'm Trench Reynolds.
I blog about crime.
This is the DBKP Week in Crime for February 10th-16th, 2008.
We start off with craigscrimelist with a review of a different inline classifed site that doesn't lend itself to criminal activity like craigslist does.
Next we go the user generated news site CrimeNe.ws. And I'm not kidding when I say user because I seem to be the last user left there. Anyway at CrimeNe.ws there;s always been a sort of fascination about guys who commit crimes with swords. This week was no different as I posted a link to a story about a naked guy with a sword in Rhode Island.
This week News of Doom was called the site that makes you want to kill yourself. I won't deny that and this week's story is an example of that. The story of the week at NoD was about an Arkansas daycare worker who raped a 4-year-old girl.
For the fisrt time in years Florida is no longer leading the scoring but not really that surpsisng New York and California are.
At MyCrimeSpace my favorite police department is featured once again. The Punta Gorda, Florida Police Department have made another drug arrest using MySpace.
At Psycho For Love I posted the tabloidish story about how much sympathy the former Long Island Lolita, Amy Fisher, has for shooting victim Mary Jo Buttafuoco which isn't much.
At Tased and Confused I posted a story about a grandmother who took a Tasing from an intruder and still managed to open a can of whupass.
And lastly at TheTrenchcoat Chronicles the big story of the week was the tragedy that happened at Northern Illinois University. However I don't want some other stories to be swept under the rug because of the focus on NIU. A 15-year-old from Oxnard, California was shot and left brain dead just because he was gay. A 19-year-old was shot at a Memphis High School which stemmed from a neighborhood argument. And in a story that I've been following for three years the son of the heqad of the Boston police union was convicted of plotting to attack his school. It's my opinion that due to his connections he won't even see the inside of a cell while an innocent 'friend' of his was sentenced to 10 months behind bars.
That's it for this week. Until next week I'm Trench Reynolds, keep your kids safe.
