more erosion

Police now “see” through walls and know if you’re home

A piece of military equipment shows police if there’s someone in a building

PS: One step forward, two steps back. We were just $150 from our goal of solving Derek King’s technology problems when he called, saying that he’d gotten a flat tire (on his spare) and his car had been towed. The towing charge is $300, and the additional daily charge for “storing” his car is $50. He cannot afford this snafu on his meager wages. I have wired him the money, but he has a rather unpleasant day ahead of him, I am afraid, getting his car out of hock and re-tired. Plus, this development has thrown a wrench in our fundraising plans. Will we ever meet the goal?

    Ground penetrating radar turned on its side. Hmm, maybe a good investment opportunity in the production of foil house-wrap and foil-clad foam insulation.

    The US passed the Posse Comitatus Act in 1879 precisely to keep the US Army out of domestic law enforcement. My experience has been that there is almost no interest within the Department of Defense to change that. Odd that the States fight so hard to keep Federal Forces out of State law enforcement and then purchase equipment intended for Federal missions.
