I'm Trench Reynolds.
I blog about crime.
I'm also fashionably late.
This is the DBKP Week in Crime for Feb 17th-23rd, 2008
As always we start off at craigscrimelist, the craigslist crime blotter, where I posted a story about 3 teachers in Nashville that were arrested in a prostitution sting. Don't salivate just yet. They were all men.
CrimeNe.ws is no long a user generated crime news site because the users just weren't there. Also I've combined two of my other non traffic generating blogs, Public Enemy: Player1 and Tased and Confused, into this new Blogenstein's Monster.
Anyway the story of the week at CrimeNe.ws was a story about an Australia man who is claiming he was Tased while handcuffed just to 'shut him up'. Obviously it didn't work.
At News of Doom, where crimes are rated on a scale of how sick they are, the story of the week was about two 'parents' from Illinois who neglected their own baby for 8 days. Scoring wise these two are leading for the highest rated single atrocity while the state of New York has taken the 'lead' in the states' rankings. Surprisingly, Florida is in 5th place. Will the defending champion be unseated this year?
At MyCrimeSpace I posted a story about a kid who was punished by his school for making a crude and libelous fake MySpace about his principal. How did his parents react. Why they sued the school of course claiming their precious little snowflake's right to free speech had been violated.
In New Zealand they don't have their own version of the Jerry Springer show. They might get one after reading this story about a Father and son love triangle that I posted about at Psycho For Love.
Last week a lot was made over the fact that the NIU gunman had recently stopped taking anti-depressants. At TheTrenchcoat Chronicles I posted how that probably had little to do with the shooting but how being on Ambien may have had something to do with it.
That's it for this week.
Until next time I'm Trench Reynolds.
