Craigslist Killer Reax

Jennifer Collins observes, “I can tell that I am deep in exam grading because when I read news updates about the Craigslist killer, instead of pondering questions like whether his girlfriend will continue to stand by him, I am focusing on all the great questions that can come out of the case for use on a crim pro exam next year.”

Conversely, I can tell that I watch virtually no television news because I read the words “Craigslist killer” and was expecting a discussion of some new application that rendered Craigslist obsolete in much that way that Craigslist killed newspaper classified advertising.
