This news is so bizarre, it's like a scene from television show. You don't expect it's reality when someone is trying to avoid police:

When police arrived at McAfees property to question him and search the premises Sunday afternoon, McAfee hid, burying himself in sand and covering his head with a cardboard box. He says he spent 18 hours hiding on his property before slipping away.

Burying in sand and covered with a cardboard box, and actually got away. I don't know if it's luck or an ingenious plan.

McAfee already had problem earlier this year.

On May 2, 2012, John McAfee's property in Orange Walk Town, Belize, was raided by the Gang Suppression Unit. A GSU press release stated that he was arrested for unlicensed drug manufacturing and possession of an unlicensed weapon. McAfee was allegedly in the presence of his 17-year-old Belizean girlfriend.

17 years old girlfriend and he was 66 years old at the time. He is something, way to go grandpa, uhm, that doesn't sound right. No wonder he can come up a plan to evade the police.

The last time I heard of a computer programmer involving a murder case was Hans Reiser, Reiser file system developer and murder convict. I didn't follow the case until now, Reiser is serving time.

Either innocent or guilty, or actually framed, the Belize police and Belizean people wouldn't happy to hear this:

You can say I'm paranoid about it, but they will kill me, there is no question. They've been trying to get me for months. They want to silence me.

I watched this Law & Order: UK video via YouTube trending. I could not believe BBC would ever make a promo video like this. Its completely hilarious and kind of making sarcasm on its own show.

I think I can put some facts together to see what Americans have learnt from British:

1In the beginning

Behind every dead body on the streets, there is an innocent suspect, who often says I didnt

It's an old-style police drama about homicide detectives. Nothing fancy about technology, no impressive huge projector (could somebody turn on the light?), no vast computer monitor (it would take you 3.1415926 seconds to walk from end to end of that monitor), no incredible multi-touch screen (ain't your hands tired?), no Windows-7-like gradient or translucency filter (my eyes hurt), no RSA-encrytion break (give me a break really), no tap-in into analogous CCTV (how on Earth they could do that, psychic?), just simple and straight into the point of a show like this should be.

I was wondering recently, why would so many police drama shows have to make up a lot of sci-fi equipment/interface stuff? It's not as if you can't have hi-tech stuff, but they really over-do and ridiculous exaggerate.

The first one I saw which has been under control is Chase. It has a great start, especially the first fight scene. I noticed the actress also played in Past Life, which I only watched the first episode. The bad guy was from The Beast, good show, but he looked more like bad guy in The Beast. Anyway, after starting, it became average.

Then Hawaii Five-0, a re-imagining version, its pace was too fast for pilot episode, I felt they rushed to put everything into place in just one episode. I don't know if that's what the original does, but it just don't make sense to me. In the end of first episode, they were cleaning up the office, where the heck those documents from? Those were like records or reports after ten years work. The leading actor, you should know he is the doctor from Three Rivers, cancelled, it had a lot of fancy stuff and the characters settings were really strange, but I watched whole season.

Back to Detroit 1-8-7, since it goes back the most important element of a show, it all depends on how the actors act. I think they are good. The only flaw in my opinion is the thing that Det. Finch has for Det. Sanchez, that really ruined the first episode. Why would writers always put love affection in every show?

Is it true that you can find many different caliber casings on a bridge in Detroit?
