^Going off the last topic, the Cincy thread has an excellent discussion on Heroin going. I'd recommend checking it out, especially Post #22 from a recovering addict:

Heroin epidemic

Very eye opening. I had no clue how big of an effect Heroin is having among solidly middle class people. A lot of Rush Limbaugh syndrome out there... one day you're on morphine after an accident, next day you're an addict! And looking to the streets to get the next high.


But switching to yet another area policing topic, Persistent Surveillance Systems:

Company says system will cut crime, but some fear privacy hit | www.mydaytondailynews.com


Basically, this technology will enable police to monitor the entire city from the sky in real time. As they put it, Google Earth in real time.

It's predicted to reduce crimes 20% - 30% in the city if used, but it is a big step towards a surveillance state.



Personally, I think we are already in a surveillance state, so what's a few drones going to hurt? Better now when we can capitalize on teh technology than later when it's federally mandated and the Silicon Valley is reaping the profits of developing it instead of Persistent Surveillance Systems doing it right here in Dayton.

The surveillance thing was also on WHIO reports today. I guess they wanted to make sure it was on all platforms

Officer in region (New Richmond, along the Ohio River near Coney Island) getting praise recently for not shooting someone:

Suspect charges New Richmond cop, who doesn't shoot - CNN.com

I'll +1 the praise. Glad to see some awesome, humane, and downright courageous cops in the area like this guy. I mean, what he did took some major guts, but at the same time it was exactly what he needed to do for the best interest of himself and the suspect. Maybe he can train some of the other cops out there.
