http://www.youtube.com

A TSA officer searches a scared 3 year old girl who is already pissed off because she had to put her teddy bear through the x-ray machine. I don't know what is worse: the fact that the mindless TSA employee actually tries to search a 3 year old or that the news reporter father lets it happen as he films and turns it into a story

Russia enters police state arms race with draconian new law.

http://www.koreatimes.co.kr

Russia has taken an unfortunate step into its police-state past with a new law that grants the state's security service broad powers to jail people simply on suspicion that they may be about to engage in illegal activity.

The FSB has now regained a power that its feared predecessor agency, the KGB, had under the Soviet Union. This has been a consistent pattern under Vladimir Putin, who, first as president, then as prime minister, has steadily restored the power and prestige of the security agencies, at the expense, many say, of Russia's fragile democracy.

A 17-year-old on a bike was chased by a police officer in a cruiser. When the boy refused to stop, the officer aimed his Taser out the driver's window and fired.

http://www.theagitator.com

Cops and their worshippers never tire of using the danger of police work as a justification for special privileges. But how dangerous is the job anyway?
