Where did I put that?

"A Florida police department says one of its own lost a confidential list of the department's drug informants when a lieutenant misplaced a flash drive, reported" - Fox News

Ooops. Somebody messed up. Gotta love their official statement on the problem...

 "We are aware of this information and are currently looking into the matter." 

Classic. Nothing to see here folks, move on! I mean can it get more stereotypical? Not that I can blame them, they totally messed up, no one wants to take blame for that.  

Did you see how he lost it? Left it on the roof of his car or the bumper and drove off. Who hasn't been there? I know I have. Luckily, my phone or cup of coffee didn't have a list of drug informants pertinent to cases I was working on.

"Some say the mistake could make informants less likely to help, fearing retaliation on the streets."

Ya think? Kind of a no-brainer there. I know if I were an informant of any kind and my name "might have been leaked" to a criminal I was going to testify against, I'd be a little concerned. 

Stupid criminals are funny, stupid law enforcement is sad.

Wrap that Rascal!

"It's hard to say this conclusively, and judges from other host cities may demand a recount, but Clay Adams of Vancouver Coastal Health said the word on the public health street is that Vancouver is king of the prophylactic winter rings." - CNN

Look at that... Distributing 100,00 condoms. Good for them! Canadians are always so concerned about safety. Unless you're a luger... I'm sorry, was that harsh? Really though was this the most important think you could think to do for safety? 

"Hey, there's some wicked bad curves on the track, oh well! Eh, did ya pass out all them condoms?"

"Oh what there's zero visibility on the downhill skiing slopes? Well, if we can't fix it with a rubber, it's not getting fixed."

You get the idea. Of course I know that the people who control safety and these condom droppers are different people, but it's no fun completely agreeing with something. Check out the quote at the end of the article saying that 35 million condoms were passed out for Mardi Gras in Rio. That's a lot of latex
