America is crime-obsessed.

What else could explain this javascript add-on that is available to all the homesteads of Yahoo!Geocities?

"Be on the lookout all the time
with this scrolling newsfeed of crime headlines"
<offending javascript removed>

I fail to see why I should be on the lookout for crime headlines - shouldn't I be on the lookout for crime?

Well, yes we should always look out for crime.
I prefer this altogether different type of crimewatch.
