Inside the Murder of Javier Valdez, the Ríodoce Journalist Killed by the Sinaloa Cartel and El Chapo
“When you don’t live the tragedy of losing a journalist, you think this is an evil that will just happen to someone else, to someone else’s family but not to yours,” she said. “In the end, we are a big family of victims in this country.”

Unusual Homicide Patterns Puzzle Oakland Officials - The Bay Citizen
According to new data from Measure Y, the city's violence-prevention program, homicide victims this year are, on average, older than the victims of years past, and slightly more homicides are occurring on weekdays, rather than Friday and Saturday nights.

Authorities are hard-pressed to assign meaning to the new patterns. Measure Y authorities say the numbers could mean that anti-violence efforts targeting youth are working, while crime analysts and homicide detectives say the numbers are the result of normal fluctuations.

The Spaces Between Stars: The secret connection between crime fiction and science fiction
Science fiction and crime fiction contextualised, explored and reported on rapidly changing and expanding modern conditions.  And they did it in ways that spoke to the felt experiences of our lives, to our hopes and our fears, in ways that other fictions, or even other reportage, couldn't approach.  Science fiction and crime fiction explained to us where we really are, and where we might be going.

Android Data Stealing Vulnerability | thomascannon.net
Responsible disclosure would normally prevent me from publishing the advisory while there is a chance the users will get a fix in a reasonable time frame. However, despite the speed at which Google has worked to develop a patch I don’t believe this can happen. The reason is that Android OS updates usually rely on OEMs and carriers to provide an update for their devices. Not all OEMs are providing Android OS updates to all of their devices, and the ones that are we have seen are not always doing it in a timely fashion. There may be legitimate reasons for this but the bottom line is there will still be a great deal of devices exposed for quite some time or perhaps forever, including my own.

Better that we know now and have the chance to protect ourselves, or at least understand the risk. I don’t expect to see the exploitation of this issue become widespread, but if you are really worried about it there are a few things you can do to identify it or prevent it [...]

Combatting the invisible problem – Richmond Confidential
“Violent crime is totally unpredictable,” he said. The key to the new initiative is in getting a handle on the city’s known criminals. ”If you look at all the studies that have been done, there is no time of day, there is no day of the week, there is no pattern. The only pattern is the person,” he said.

“Parolees, probationers, gang members, and drug users have a higher likelihood of being victims or suspects of violent crime. So if you target them, you can indirectly impact your violence problem,” he said.

Technology Review: Blogs: arXiv blog: New Class of Malware Will Steal Behavioral Patterns
If malware steals your credit card details or online banking passwords, you can easily change them and this limits the damage.

But if a malicious attacker steals your behavioral patterns, there's almost nothing you can do. You can't change your network of friends or family, for example.

What's more, once this information is released, it is more or less impossible to contain--how would you ensure that every copy had been deleted?

John Dillinger, Existentialist by Thomas S. Hibbs on National Review Online
But the pace, in the end, is precisely the point. Dillinger is nothing more than what he does. He robs banks, and in this he achieves a kind of freedom, liberation from petty concerns over a job and a family, over what others think of him, over the desire for money and advancement, even over the fear of death, as the scene in the Biograph indicates.

That accounts for both the attraction of Dillinger and his essential emptiness, a combination that Mann’s own film mimics: artistic flair wedded to nihilism.

The picture throws off an aura of wistfulness, which may be Mann's acknowledgment that of course he can't re-create the past. The best he can do is to honor the idea of it, storybook-style, and to remind us that before there was gangsta, there were gangsters.

Parallels abound in killing of journalists three decades apart - San Jose Mercury News
"When somebody kills a journalist, they're not only trying to shut her or him up and stop the next installment of the story, but they want to terrorize the whole community, the community of readers and the community of journalists," he said. "They want to be clear that their monopoly on power and the irrelevance of the rule of law may not be challenged."

"There are countries in which reporters write stories about corrupt government officials or gangs or drug smugglers at the risk of being shot and killed. But this is not something that's supposed to happen in the United States."

Rihanna beating photo: Can public handle ugly truth? - Los Angeles Times
Establishment media outlets had a much more negative, or at best ambivalent, reaction to the picture. Part of that stemmed from a legitimate concern about verifying the source of the photo and whether it accurately reflected the singer's injuries.

Model Minority "Thugs, Feminists and Boom Bap": Bart Police Kill an Unarmed Man, Oscar Grant, on New Years Day
[...] Let's be clear about how this is a teachable moment about who does and doesn't have power in our society.

When you live in a society where the people who taken an oath to serve and protect you, can conceivably smoke a person who looks like you in front several witnesses. You feel powerless.

Furthermore, it is reasonable for you to feel powerless and want smash the symbols of the power that you do not have.

Rage can only turn to violence when unchecked.

In many ways, rage is violence.

For many young folks, the idea is to carry a gat, because it is clear that no one will protect them. This means always staying
strapped. [...]

My Word: Dori J. Maynard -- When is a riot a riot? Did you see what I saw? - Inside Bay Area
After the 1992 Los Angeles riot, a columnist asked what do you do when you've marched and you've sung and you've staged sit-ins and nonviolent protests, and still you're told you don't count? I don't think he or anybody who uses the words rebellion, uprising or civil unrest was attempting to justify the massive destruction that devastated portions of the city. I think he was trying to lay bare the sense of hopelessness and frustration that can trigger a level of anger that has sent otherwise sane people into the streets.

It's not a point of view that comes naturally to some segments of our society, just as it's hard for some segments to have faith in a fair police investigation into the shooting of an unarmed African-American man.

David Farber's Interesting People: Maryland Students Use Speed Cameras for Revenge
High school students in Maryland are using speed cameras as a tool to fine innocent drivers in a game, according to the Montgomery County Sentinel newspaper. Because photo enforcement devices will automatically mail out a ticket to any registered vehicle owner based solely on a photograph of a license plate, any driver could receive a ticket if someone else creates a duplicate of his license plate and drives quickly past a speed camera. The private companies that mail out the tickets often do not bother to verify whether vehicle registration information for the accused vehicle matches the photographed vehicle. [...]

Op-Ed Contributor - Margare Atwood - A Matter of Life and Debt - NYTimes.com
We are social creatures who must interact for mutual benefit, and — the negative version — who harbor grudges when we feel we’ve been treated unfairly. Without a sense of fairness and also a level of trust, without a system of reciprocal altruism and tit-for-tat — one good turn deserves another, and so does one bad turn — no one would ever lend anything, as there would be no expectation of being paid back. And people would lie, cheat and steal with abandon, as there would be no punishments for such behavior.

Powells.com From the Author - Kate Brennan
"[...] When it came time to actually choose a pen name, I was driven by a need to have it feel connected to me. I amazed myself with how complicated I made the process. I rearranged the letters of my first, middle and last names. The results all sounded like strippers. Next I combined my initials with those of my parents'. Those names all sounded like they belonged to 18th-century poets. Then I tried variations with my confirmation name, but since I didn't like that one even when I chose it, the results held no appeal.

"Finally, running out of time, I opted for a name that was not obviously linked to me, yet one that felt familiar. I settled on Kate Brennan, a name as clean and simple as my own.

"Now that I'm attached to it, I can only ask that no one rob me of the protection it affords."
