When police responded to the April 14, 2009 murder of a young woman in an upscale Boston hotel, they had little to go on. Besides the victim, who was found face down in the doorway of her room, her hands bound with plastic ties, with three 9-mm bullet wounds to the hip, lung and heart, they found blood on the carpet, a spent bullet casing, a cell phone and a Gucci bag containing the identification of a 26-year-old New York woman named Julissa Brisman.Within a week, though, police had their man: a 23-year-old second-year Boston University medical school student named Philip Markoff, who would soon become known as the “Craigslist Killer.”The dramatic story of how they cracked the case, through a combination of lucky breaks, dogged police work and a trail of traditional and digital forensic evidence, was told Saturday to a spellbound audience at the ABA Techshow’s plenary session program, On the Trail of the Craigslist Killer: A Case Study in Digital … [Read more...] about Connecting the digital dots to catch the ‘Craigslist Killer’

Not so in Pennsylvania where anyone 21 years of age or older and has been licensed to operate a motorcycle for not less than two full calendar years OR has completed a motorcycle safety course approved by PennDOT or the Motorcycle Safety Foundation can ride without one. Beyond the arguments for or against mandatory helmet laws is the reality of the dangers associated with riding without one. A few years ago, the Philadelphia Inquirer published an article on the Pennsylvania law that permits riders to forgo a helmet and State Representative Dan Frankel’s effort to reinstate a mandatory helmet law.According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Institute, in New Jersey for the year 2007, there were 85 motorcycle related fatalities of which 82 % were wearing helmets.

WHAT are the arguments for and against a second referendum or the so-called “People’s Vote – a weasel title the Remain lobby use to give it the ring of democracy? Their default chorus is the accusation of false claims such as the NHS slogan inscribed on the side of the campaign bus that Remainers have tediously exploited to the point of cerebral stupor. They omit to recite the predictions of economic and social doom that they forecast would occur almost immediately after the referendum. All but one, a drop in the pound, turned out to be false.And it is rarely emphasised that the full and massive weight of the Establishment, including Government forces, were mobilised to achieve a Remain vote.
