A question

Shouldn’t the FBI and CIA be concentrating on preventing this type of stuff?  Seems like they’ve been a bit distracted of late.

I am glad this woman protected herself, because it is clear that the justice system was doing a lousy job of protecting her.

This is what we should have been doing for the last 50 years.  Better late than never. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

China

The Chinese government has been making great efforts to steal US technology.  As part of that they have been paying professors at american universities.  It is amazing the number of academics who have been willing to sell themselves and their talents.  I am glad to see the government cracking down on this.

Murder in Jamaica

Story here.  It is very unusual for tourists to be harmed in Jamaica, especially on the north side of the island where the locals depend on the tourist-related economy.  While Jamaica has been dealing with an uptick in violence (mostly gang-related) violence against tourists is nearly unheard of.  I’ll be interested to see what happened here.

Bump stocks

The administration’s change in the regulation regarding bump stocks came to the Supreme Court on a cert. petition.  That petition was denied.  However, the issue is far from over.  In fact, the matter is likely to come back before the Court very soon, and I am not sure that it will stand review.  As for me, I think that any change has to be handled by legislation, not regulation.

WTF?

This story keeps getting weirder and weirder.  The story is a bit confusing but the missing footage is the one from the first “suicide” attempt, not the second one two weeks later.  BTW, notice the photo of Epstein’s cell mate when he made the first attempt, before he was put in a cell alone.  This story is just dying for an investigative reporter who won’t stop digging.  There is a Pulitzer somewhere in this pile of crap.
