Nothin' but linkspam

UCLA student repeatedly tasered for not having student ID. A different headline I saw alleged it was "at least four times." With accompanying camera-phone video. Update: UCLA student stunned by Taser plans suit, having "hired a high-profile civil rights lawyer who plans to file a brutality lawsuit."

You know how I mentioned They Fight Crime the other day? Well, TFC needs your help. "In fact, [TFC had been down] for over six months. And in the interim, a load of people who have basically done nothing other than rip off the original and remove the credit, have started to clog up the google listings for 'they fight crime.' And I object to other people thinking it's OK to steal Andrew's and my work (mostly Andrew's), remove the authorial credit, and (in some cases) make money off it via ads, when the original was free. So, if anyone fancies posting the link up in forums, blogs, LJs, myspace, with the usual 'Here's a funny link' nonsense, and perhaps a few choice generated phrases, that'd be ace. If you felt like explaining the reason I'd like the link to do the rounds again, including words like 'The original they fight crime generator is back,' or similar, and generally encouraging people to send it about so that we get back to our fair place, that'd be great, too."

Simpson publisher says why she did it: She was trying to set O.J. up.

Publishing maverick Judith Regan issued a statement Thursday night, calling her most-famous author a "killer" and acknowledging that she set up O.J. Simpson in a bid to get a confession out of him on behalf of battered women everywhere — herself among them.

...In the 2,210-word statement, Regan says that Brown Simpson and Goldman "were in my heart" during the interview.

"I made the decision to publish this book, and to sit face to face with the killer, because I wanted him — and the men who broke my heart and your hearts — to tell the truth, to confess their sins, to do penance, and amend their lives," Regan said in the statement.
And to make a lot of money.

Spoiler pics from OOTP trailer. Voldemort has got to get some robes with actual sleeves, I am telling you. For some reason, the v-neck and bare forearms always make me think "hospital gown," in that off-the-shelf temporary apparel kind of way. Can't nobody bring the Dark Lord some new threads? I ask you.
