From IMAO:

Jim R. from Werder, Ethiopia asks:
Would “midnight basketball” work for the Iraqi looters and/or the Palestinian bombers?

Midnight basketball has been proven an effective way to reduce crime. In a recent study, serial killers who played midnight basketball, though not less likely to kill, were less serial in their killing. Basketball would probably be a great alternative to looting in Iraq. It also may work for the Palestinian bombers as they will be too tired to get up early and bomb the next morning, and might not get to the mall until it’s already closed. I still say mass execution is the best solution for that problem, though. After that, I’d try midnight basketball.

Sounds about right.
