Episode #1074: Allison and Jamie yell at the author of a dumb email, followed by a discussion of victim-blaming following a hacker stealing some celebrity nudes, and two cities in California get rid of armored vehicles, which is great, but pales in comparison to the problem of Stop and Frisk. Plus, Occupy Central kicks ass, police in Chicago refuse to allow a mother to see the body of her child, Camden gets a new police force, and a women's college opens its doors to transgender students.
