Denver Homicide Suspect Who Ate Pot In Court
A judge is weighing the evidence against a Denver man whose wife told dispatchers he ate marijuana-infused candy before he shot and killed her.

This New Card Skimmer Is Almost As Thin As A Credit Card
Good old Brian Krebs has the scoop on a new card skimmer found in Europe. How is it different? It literally fits right into the card slot of any ATM, essentially allowing unfettered access to cards as they slide through. Add in a tiny camera and you’ve got a complete card cloning system. The skimmer is powered by a simple watch battery and uses a very small PCB and magnetic strip reader to store the numbers. Apparently the thieves didn’t remove this unit from the slot in time and it caused a fatal error in the ATM. Why was this in Europe? Mostly to grab benighted American credit cards. Because most European terminals use the relatively unbeatable chip and PIN system, this skimmer was primarily designed to grab the old credit cards.
