The proceeds of crime, now on ebay.

It has been legal for some time now for UK law enforcement agencies to confiscate "the proceeds of crime" - the stuff that crooks buy with their ill-gotten gains.Not the stolen goods, but stuff legitimately bought with cash earned by illegitimate means.Leicestershire police have gone a step further, and are trialling selling said goods on ebay.Looking at their list, I'm not surprised to see heavy gold chains, TVs and game systems, but a flute?Leicestershire police ebay listBBC Story

Why do Americans hold their torches in an overhand way ? Answered

Is there a particular reason why Americans, (especially police officers, in films at least), hold their torches in an overhand position? It seems quite uncomfortable; I have never seen anyone in the UK hold a torch like that, we seem to align our thumbs along the top with the torch held out in front of us.. Anyway this observation is only based on films that I have watched so it might not actually be the case; but I can't help thinking about it when it happens during a film. Help me to let it go...

C.O.P. Suit: Personal Protest Wear

Whoever does a DIY version first i will bake cookies, seriously: C.O.P Suit was inspired by the COP15 climate summit. The brief was to propose solutions for, or to comment on, the ongoing climate debate – using wearable technology and design as a medium. The C.O.P Suit is an experiment in personal protest wear, designed to address the by now almost ritualised stand-offs between police and demonstrators – what has ironically been described as the ‘folk dance of disorder’. The suit is composed of an armored protection sleeve connected to a megaphone-mounted helmet, offering protection as well as the possibility of voicing commands, orders or simply generating noise. The suit is designed as a purposefully ambiguous and (slightly) ironic artifact, echoing the fetishistic visual language of protesters and police alike – a comment on the similarity of the means each side employs. The C.O.P suit is designed to be completely self-sustainable – utilising kinetic energy from common gestures in a protest situation (the fist thrust triumphantly into the air, the swinging of a baton or the force of a strike to the armor) to power the megaphone, making rioting hard on the ears, but easy on the conscience.

Any way to build low cost police band Ka radar transmitter? NOT Jammer.

We are trying to curb speeders in the neighborhood, and I thought it would be cool to have one of those radar detector "tester" type devices. Done a lot of research on this, but it seems it's hard to find a transmitter for the Ka band which would be the most beneficial to trick speeders into thinking they are being radar checked. I know jammers are illegal and frowned on in some places, so this I need just enough power to set off passing radar detectors. It can also use AC power or be fixed, since I'll just be using it around my house. Thanks!

Zombie fiction: illegal in Kentucky.

A Kentucky student has been arrested under anti-terrorist legislationWinchester police say William Poole, 18, was taken into custody Tuesday morning. Investigators say they discovered materials at Poole's home that outline possible acts of violence aimed at students, teachers, and police.Poole told LEX 18 that the whole incident is a big misunderstanding. He claims that what his grandparents found in his journal and turned into police was a short story he wrote for English class."My story is based on fiction," said Poole, who faces a second-degree felony terrorist threatening charge. "It's a fake story. I made it up. I've been working on one of my short stories, (and) the short story they found was about zombies. Yes, it did say a high school. It was about a high school over ran by zombies."I originally found this story through Groxx.

Where can you buy steel (chrome) chain like used in a dog leash or wallet chain, but 7 feet or longer?

These are sold as dog collars in 4 foot lengths, but I need more like 7 feet. I tried looking up "wallet chain" but those are obviously even shorter. I saw this kind of chain was also called police chain or handcuff chain. Strength is important, it can't be some soft metal like cheap jewelry, preferably steel. Any ideas who sells this, preferably at discount prices? Thanks...
