There's been a lot of debate about how effective surveillance cameras are in both deterring crime and helping prosecute criminals. But how often does a thief get his mug snapped by chance?
Here's a neat story of a family photo that should help convict a guy.
I do wonder, though: if the person taking the picture was a friend of the family, how come he didn't see the bad guy rummaging in the bag?
And while we're dipping into the news, I do not know any of the details of this case but the courthouse has been abuzz with excitement regarding the DeLay case, now set for trial on October 26. I need to remember to take a(nother) vacation that week to avoid being run over by media trucks.
