Numerous news organizations and blogs have been approached by Scotland Yard (not this blog we're afraid - too small to be noticed) asking that they not publicize the pictures we did as it may jeopardize an ongoing investigation. A number of them have complied. After some careful consideration, we have decided not to. The reasons are as follows:
- We are small, barely hitting 150 readers a day
- These pictures are everywhere after ABC posted them. If this isn't a situation of closing the barn door after the horse, pigs and chickens have all left and the cow is turning off the lights, we don't know what is.
- We are decidedly contrarian in our viewpoint that this information SHOULD be shared, especially as it relates to safety. Again, animals and empty barns.
- Most, if not all, of our readers are Chicago cops. If we can make even one copper aware of what these devices look like...well, we've been to far too many funerals not to post the pictures.
