Social network for law enforcement to start

Social network for law enforcement

A law enforcement social media network designed exclusively for the men and women in blue is set to begin in late October. BlueLine is being touted as a site where officers can share their expertise, insight and information securely through video, instant messaging and videoconferencing. It was created by Bill Bratton, a former Los Angeles police chief and New York City police commissioner. "Our intent is to have officers locate their counterparts and closely interact with each other on a number of topics such as gangs and counterterrorism as well as share their best practices and strategies," he said.

Vengeance killer in Mexico suspected

Mexican prosecutors said Monday they are investigating claims that a woman who killed two bus drivers last week in Ciudad Juarez was seeking revenge for alleged sexual abuse of female passengers. A woman wearing a blond wig — or dyed hair — boarded two buses and shot the drivers in the head. Over the weekend, media outlets received emails from the address "Diana the hunter of bus drivers." The emails said, "I myself and other women have suffered in silence but we can't stay quiet anymore." The city has a grim history of sexual violence against women aboard buses.
