  1. Threadjack:

    Did Reason cover this elsewhere? This seems huge to me.

    You can be convicted of Sarbanes-Oxley violations on your home computer.

    The agents asked the suspect if they could see his computer to confirm his story, but the suspect replied that they could not: When the suspect learned that the feds had dropped by, and when he realized that they were investigating him for child pornography, he had decided to destroy his hard drive. He “didn’t want to take any chances” of going to jail, he said. According to his brief, he had smashed his hard drive with a hammer, ran a magnet over it, and “thr[ew] the pieces out of his car window while driving.”

    The feds apparently lacked the evidence to charge the suspect with possessing child pornography, but instead they charged and convicted him under a 2002 statute passed as part of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, 18 U.S.C. 1519:

    Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

  2. Fresnans.

      1. Those from Fresno say “Fresnan”. Those from neighboring communities say “Fresnoid”.

  3. Police arrest woman who allegedly shot boyfriend

    Horry County police arrested Jo Anna Marsh, 58, Tuesday afternoon.
    Police responded to 185 Village Drive around 8 p.m. Monday after a man called 911 and told dispatchers he’d been shot by his girlfriend, according to the police report. The victim told police Marsh spontaneously shot him with a .357 caliber handgun following a dispute over eviction papers he had given to her.

    During a sweep of the home, police found two dead cats in the bottom of a laundry basket inside one of the home’s bathrooms.

    The cats were dead when they got there.
    Nothing else happened.…..?id=642204

    1. Police do their job.
      Jackboot thugs demand recognition and praise.
      Nothing else happened.

    2. It truly is news when the stories don’t end in dead dogs (although this one did end in mysteriously dead cats which the police say were dead when they got there) or dead innocent family members.
