Comment Careful with the "black fraud day". (Score 1) 145

Here's an example of how deceiving those ads can be. Best Buy will have a 128GB flash drive for $19.99, discounted from the regular price of $99.99. Great deal, huh? Not really, as Amazon has the same drive right now for $32.44, and the list price is $52.99. Meaning, Best Buy had marked up their price to make the discount look much better than it actually is.

Why has it been allowed to get this bad? Despite how much they like to pretend otherwise, police departments are still beholden to one or more elected officials. If people want the problem solved, they need to put the right people in office. That's how a democracy works - it's not something you can put on auto-pilot and expect it to fix itself.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
