If you love the internet and hate privacy, and wish to wallow in the mixture of tragedy and farce that is humanity at its worst, check out this sleek and user-friendly database of police arrests in Florida's Tampa Bay area.

There's the farcical, like the chipper 50 year old drunk who seems to have been replacing his missing teeth one by one with gold imitations but ran out of money about a quarter of the way into the project. Then there's the tragic, like the clean-cut 19 year old who just killed someone in a drink-driving accident.

I can't quite believe that this sort of internet exposure meshes with the spirit of "innocent until proven guilty", but then the Americans do have a tendency to season the upholding of the law with a little celebrity.
