Can a computer program catch a bad guy before he even commits a crime? MARTA will soon see. The transit agency has contracted with a Houston-based security firm to analyze its surveillance video using an artificial-intelligence-based software that “learns” to distinguish normal behavior from that which seems suspicious.

I was very surprised to read in an AJC story last week that Leanna Harris, the mom of the toddler who died in the SUV, said she was not mad at her husband. I find that very odd.
I think you can support your husband. I think you can believe he did not do it intentionally. However, accidental or not, I think I would still be very upset and angry with my husband if my child died in his care. As I would expect him to be angry at me if something happened to our children in my care.
Here is the indirect quote and quote from the mother:
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — In her first public comments since her son died 10 days ago in the backseat of the family’s SUV, Leanna Harris said she is not angry at her husband, who listened by phone from Cobb County Jail.
Ross Harris, charged with felony murder and second-degree cruelty to children, thanked those who have supported him since his arrest June 18.
The other thing that I am wondering about is that according to the warrants both parents searched for information about temperatures that would kill in a hot car. Could it be that they were just searching for new stories about other kids that died? If you Google searched “kids, die, cars” does that mean you were searching for stories about kids that died or searching for methodology?
Additional affidavits released Sunday state that Leanna Harris made similar statements. Police seized several electronics from the SUV and the couple’s Marietta-area condo, including an iPhone, iPad, a desktop computer, two laptops and a Google Chromecast digital media player, the warrants state.”
I am trying to think about things that I could have searched that could be misconstrued. I search crazy things for stories sometimes.
So these are things that are sticking in my craw. I wondered if either of those things struck you guys as odd? Would you be mad if something happened to your child in the other parent’s care? What are things that you’ve searched that could look weird if someone took the time to look at your computer or phone?
