Some Late-Morning Links: Ft. Worth Police Kill Two In Two Days, Beaver Attack, SWAT Team Raids Sex Show

-- A three-mile stretch of road in D.C. has yielded $28 million in red light and speed cameras since 2011. I can personally vouch for the fact that on one part of this route, there's a traffic merge for which it would actually be more dangerous to drive the speed limit.

-- It's funny how quickly a dogged, determined reporter can morph into a "partisan attack dog" if one happens to look fondly on the politicians she's investigating.

-- In Ft. Worth, two police killings in a matter of days. In the first story, an unarmed asthmatic man died after getting Tasered during a drug raid. In the other story, a man was killed by police responding to a neighbor's burglar alarm when he himself walked out of his house to investigate. He was armed, but he was also on his own property.

-- The beavers are coming.

-- Atheists have now donated over $100,000 to Oklahoma tornado victim Rebecca Vitsmun and her family. (Disclosure, a friend of mine started this campaign. I also donated.)

-- Justice Scalia continues to take the stick-your-fingers-in-your-ears approach to the fact that there are innocent people in America's prisons.

-- Utah town sends a SWAT team to break up a sex show. Sure. Sounds like a perfectly proportional response.
