I'm not so sure making yourself look like a terror suspect is going to prevent burglaries or result in burglars getting arrested sooner, but I would tend to expect many uncomfortable interviews with the authorities.
Thanks to the Madera Police Department for posting this mugshot and hilarious arrest story on their Facebook page. The guy literally spray painted his face black in hopes that police wouldn't notice him.
Normally I would have a hard time making a case for their being any such thing as taking privacy too seriously, but this... this sacrifices situational awareness for privacy. I'm not sure that's a healthy trade-off.
It never ceases to amaze me how people who are perfectly comfortable using terms like spam or virus or man-in-the-middle will still resort to describing pharming instead of just using the term pharming. It's almost as if they'd never heard of the word before. Next thing you know people will forget what BACN is.
