US "Mancession" Update

As everyone is likely aware the US Unemployment figures are monitored closely by financial markets - and recently they have flattened out and up-ticked a couple of times - and that had caused some concern. President Obama last week (Sept 7) announced another shot of stimulus ($50bn) to add to the trillions already committed.

Anyways in that spirit I felt it was time we updated the "Mancession" chart to see if he gals had caught-up with the men yet.

WA woman threw acid on self - Police

This story got alot of play on CBC TV News (The National) undoubtedly because it was a heinous crime "against a women" (perhaps also b/c it was in Vancouver WA).  That was somewhat lessened by her claim a black women threw the acid at her.  In the press Conference with her swaddled in bandages - she was remarkably chipper and almost joking about the grim occurrence. 

Now she has confessed to committing the injuring on herself. 

Can there be any doubt that women can be unstable and are more likely to lie to gain attention/sympathy of others. [In August a young women - Ashley KIRILOW of Burlington ON admitted to faking having cancer and receiving donations.  She went as far as completely altering her appearance to look like she was undergoing Cancer treatment.]  I suggest that a man would most likely lie to advance his career or con others of cash/property (i.e Bernie Madoff).  Official studies support the facts that women are more likely to lie.  And how can DV Counselors advocate for women of such irresponsibility?

And does anyone believe that if this mischievous waste of police and health-care resources was perpetrated by a male - he would not be charged?

Cops on camera

This blog post discusses the inevitable benefits of cops having cameras and being filmed - for their own protection.  IMHO it is NOT if but when.  The prices of suitable technology is falling and soon it will be difficult to ignore.  Certianly - from the comments below - it is hard to see why SWAT teams could not divert a little of the funds they spend on all the other toys to protect themselves from lawsuits (unless they would just increase).
