Leading Off (7/21/09)

1. As if the towing business wasn’t shady enough, the Dallas Morning News reports that two Dallas County constables have “embarked on aggressive and unregulated towing operations using a company with a troubled history in the auto-salvage business.” That’s a rather objective way of saying, if you’ve ever been towed by Dowdy Ferry Auto Services, blame constables Derick Evans and Jaime Cortes. Oh, and, yes, the owner of the towing company has contributed to both their campaigns.

2. Those nice young boys knocking on your door and offering to sell you an alarm system? I know this may shock you, so prepare yourself: it could be a scam.

3. Richardson plant store owners set up security cameras to catch a burglar stealing their inventory. They called the cops after they watched the tape, even though the thief turned out to be a monkey. (“You really aren’t going to believe this …”) Monkey’s motive? Home decorating project? Or just spruce up the back yard? I guess it could be the same thing, huh?
