Submission + - NYPD Cop posing as 14-year-old girl online catches NY Police Sergeant (timesunion.com)

McGruber writes: The Albany, NY Times Union has a story that you are not likely to see on "Cops", the Fox television show: "A sting operation involving a New York City police officer posing as a 14-year-old girl" that resulted in the arrest of a 26-year veteran police sergeant, on charges accusing him of committing computer crimes dangerous to minors. The sergeant was arrested Friday morning when he arrived for work at police headquarters and was handcuffed while in uniform.

Submission + - Police Tazers no match for Rampaging Man Armed wit (kgw.com)

McGruber writes: KGW Television has the news (http://www.kgw.com/news/local/Hillsboro-man-in-custody-after-Star-War-light-saber-attack-135654188.html) that Portland Police Tasers were no match for a rampaging man "swinging two 'Star Wars' light sabers at customers in a Toys R Us store at Jantzen Beach", Oregon.

According to the article, "An officer tried to use a Taser, but the device failed. A second Taser also failed after the man used the light sabers to break one of the wires." Officers were then forced to wrestle the man to the ground.

Hopefully, this tactic of utilizing toy lightsabers to disable tasers will be fully exploited by the 15,070 Czechs who described themselves as Knights of the Jedi and believers in 'the Force' (http://idle.slashdot.org/story/11/12/16/0344218/czech-nationwide-census-shows-jump-in-jedi-knights) in their fight against religious intolerance.
