See something, say something fails again as police release YouTube shooter to go on to work. Too bad they don’t have gun control laws and safe zones!

And again the shooter is NOT an NRA member.

APNewsBreak: US suspects cellphone spying devices in DC

The use of what are known as cellphone-site simulators by foreign powers has long been a concern, but American intelligence and law enforcement agencies — which use such eavesdropping equipment themselves — have been silent on the issue until now.

In a March 26 letter to Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, the Department of Homeland Security acknowledged that last year it identified suspected unauthorized cell-site simulators in the nation’s capital. The agency said it had not determined the type of devices in use or who might have been operating them. Nor did it say how many it detected or where.

They can cost anywhere from $1,000 to about $200,000. They are commonly the size of a briefcase; some are as small as a cellphone. They can be placed in a car next to a government building. The most powerful can be deployed in low-flying aircraft.

The ability to step a call down to unencrypted 2G is probably the most powerful of the voice eavesdropping.

Guardian:Jaws drop as great white shark interrupts Australian police operation

The shark, dubbed Noah by South Australia police, glided in between a police dinghy containing two life-jacketed police officers and their intended target, a recreational fishing boat selected for a random breath test.

It was about 4.5m long – longer than the inflatable dinghy – and swam after the small boat before circling back to the 5.7m fishing boat that it had been following for the previous 10 minutes.
