CJA: It’s all just political fun and games until somebody dies.

Cidu Bill on Jan 9th 2014

  • It’s beginning to look more and more likely that New Jersey’s governor Christie engineered a massive days-long traffic jam in Fort Lee, in retaliation for that city’s mayor not supporting his re-election bid. The traffic was responsible for a woman’s death. If this turns out to be true, should Christie face manslaughter charges?

Just to clarify: You don’t have to log onto Facebook or even be signed up to see the page, but you do have to be a member to comment. Fortunately, more than a billion people are members.

It’s not a perfect solution, but I’m trying to make the best of a difficult situation. Hopefully the regular CJA site will be up again soon.

Crimeweek Note

Cidu Bill on Apr 12th 2013

A blanket apology to some of you who recently commented on Crimeweek: like the CIDU site, comments by people who hadn’t posted there before get held for moderation (I knew that, of course) — but unlike on CIDU, I wasn’t being notified when a comment was sitting in limbo (I hadn’t known that).

Comments approved, problem corrected.

CJA: What can/should society do with ”bad seed” children?

Cidu Bill on Apr 1st 2013

  • The CJA site is actually on hiatus (until the new version goes live). I thought this was an interesting enough question to discuss, but it didn’t really belong on the CIDU site proper, so I dusted off my old Crimeweek site. I’m still going to use the “CJA” tag, though, because you’ve told me this helps you to quickly identify the crime-related posts. Such as: Two Fifth Graders Arrested in Rape/Murder Plot
