The Long Arm of the Law

Friday, March 27, 2009


Last Tuesday a British student logged onto a message board and announced that he was going to burn down his school. Fifty minutes later he was arrested with a gas can and a knife after another member of the message board, on the other side of the world, alerted authorities. JP Neufeld explains why he called the police.

Congratulations to J. P. Neufeld, a true hero, though not quite on the level of firefighters entering a burning building!

Thank you to Brooke and the crew for bringing us this story, a good counterpoint to the lie of the "38 witnesses" promulgated by the NY Times.
