We see this all over the place, with the Dorner (or what ever his name was) in the Los Angles area, the response to the Boston bombings, etc. Our cops are over militarized, terrified that everyone is out to get them, and yet have no accountability. So we see these monster cluster fucks, we are lucky more of us are not hurt in them (of course, how many were hurt by not being able to go to work for a day or more in Boston, it wasn't the police or the upper class).
And I'm really hating the new layout. For more than a day, the top article has been an old one about how birth control works. Great read, but I've read it. The old layout I could just read until I'd read it before, now it's like FUCKING FACEBOOK!!!! Already, I'm not reading as much as I used to, for me, this is probably going to kill my bOINGbOING habit.
