Paint It Black

white-van2Los Angelos Police Dept (LAPD) advise a thief (or thieves) are targeting white vans in the San Fernando Valley area for the tools inside

several vans have been stolen in recent weeks – the vans being found abandoned soon after but the tools (which can easily be sold on) missing

the LAPD has suggested 6 steps drivers can take to lessen the chance of them falling victim to this type of crime – http://tinyurl.com/h8ubosy

madhatters freely offers a seventh – paint the bloody van a different colour !

Jumper Saved by Seat of His Pants

by duncanr

A Los Angeles man who jumped off a tall building after his girlfriend dumped him was saved by the quick-thinking actions of some LAPD officers at the scene.

The officers managed to grab hold of him while one of them slipped a pair of handcuffs on his wrist and attached the other end to the railing surrounding the balcony. They then hauled him back onto the balcony – one officer all the time holding on to his pants (that’s got to have hurt !!!)
