The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

New crime blog

Almost everyone knows what Craigs List is- but for those that don't, it was one mans answer to putting classified ads online. While the idea is appealing- and was ahead of it's time by years and years... it's also been a bit of a problem as people began using the free service as a way to participate in criminal activity. Drugs, theft, prosecution... they are all weekly activities going on thanks to the user submitted ads.

Of course, I wouldn't be mentioning Craigs List if I didn't have a good reason to- and thankfully Trench of CrimeNews has given me just that reason. In a spin off of his ever popular MyCrimeSpace blog, Trench has started CraigsCrimeList, a collection of the crimes related to Craigslist users.
