Market Report  

May 1, 2005

By Shelly Feuer Domash

April 1, 2005

By Commander Gilmore

We've gotta believe that 46 Brazilian police officers now own the world's record for the most embarrassing cop moment in history. Nearly 50 officers from the state of Paraiba were on a bus heading for a big athletic competition in the city of Salvador when four armed dudes blocked the road and announced a holdup.
