Cheese-eating Jail Monkeys
France outlaws the filming of violence by anyone other than a journalist. Via Slashdot.
So, basically, the folks who happen to film a crime will most likely be doing time right alongside of the people who perpetrated it. That'll make for some interesting jailhouse rock, donchathink?
And since when did we lend out Dick Cheney for consulting to other countries?
This kinda reminds me of some of the brain-deadedness of our (USA's) drug war where we spend so much time throwing potheads in jail for life that we sometimes don't have time to get around to murderers and rapists.
