In this courtroom footage, an accused man executes his cunning plan: smash up a computer.
From the facebook page of the Pierce County Sheriff's Department in Tacoma, Washington:
We had a little excitement in the courthouse a few days ago when a Level III Sex Offender vandalized a courtroom during a hearing at the Pierce County courthouse. The suspect was seated at a table with his attorney when he suddenly stood up and charged at a judicial assistant’s desk. As he rushed toward an employee seated at the desk, the suspect smashed a computer monitor and knocked numerous clerical items onto the floor.
One of our corrections deputies chased after the suspect, grabbed his suit jacket and pulled him away as the judicial assistant fled from her desk toward a safe area. The corrections deputy tackled the suspect and took him into custody for the destruction of property.
An outstanding response by #PCSD corrections deputies ensured that there were no injuries during the incident and damages were limited to less than $1000. Well done!

I didn’t get the chance until I started my fourth crime novel, Blackout, which hits in May from Polis Books—the latest in a Miami crime series featuring recovering alcoholic private investigator Pete Fernandez.
The Associated Press reports that two Baltimore police officers were convicted today of racketeering and robbery. I’m not sure off the top of my head which case it is, because it’s Baltimore and the apple barrel is so rotten as to be a gooey tub of lovecraftian matter that converts public trust into settlements. BREAKING: […]
The web is vast, and while there’s room for everyone, competition is stiff when it comes to landing on that first page of a Google search. That’s why developers aren’t afraid to spend exorbitant amounts of time and money on search engine optimization (SEO) to ensure their sites rank higher than others. However, not all […]
Many of us enjoy the aesthetic of vintage electronics, but trying to use most hardware from the 1950’s isn’t necessarily practical. This is especially true where speakers are concerned. While most of us can appreciate the old-school feel of retro speakers, they have a hard time matching the convenience and power delivered by today’s Bluetooth speakers. […]
